CGG Announces its Q1 2024 Results

Paris, France | May 14, 2024

Very strong start to the year 
Revenue at $273m, up 30% y-o-y 
ADJUSTED EBITDAs at $106m, up 58% y-o-y
Net Cash-Flow at $30m

CGG (ISIN: FR0013181864), a global technology and high-performance computing (HPC) leader, announced today its first quarter 2024 non-audited results.

Commenting on these results, Sophie Zurquiyah, CGG CEO, said:

“I am very pleased with our first quarter performance. At $273m, we delivered the best first quarter revenue since our strategic decision to become an asset light company in late 2018. Our $30m net cash generation, together with the recent upgrade of our long-term debt by S&P Global Ratings are positive steps of our financial trajectory and balance sheet deleveraging. The continued strong market environment across our core segments, combined with CGG’s recent backlog pick-up, further increases our confidence in achieving our 2024 financial targets.”
