CGG Announces its Q2 2023 Results

Paris, France | Jul 27, 2023

Revenue at $289m, up 20% y-o-y     
Ebitda at $104m, a 36% margin related to business mix    
Net Income at $39m

CGG (ISIN: FR0013081864), a global technology and high-performance computing (HPC) leader, announced today its second quarter 2023 non-audited results.

Commenting on these results, Sophie Zurquiyah, CGG CEO, said: CGG delivered good performance in Q2. Our Geoscience business is back to pre-covid levels, driven by technology differentiation and the increasing adoption of advanced acquisition technologies, such as nodes, where clients strongly prefer our leading imaging capabilities. Earth Data remains in line with our full year objectives while Sensing and Monitoring confirmed its expected rebound, with high quarterly revenue.  
Increased SMO activity in Q2 drove working capital higher, which is expected to translate into significant positive cash-flow in H2.  
The market remains active, with clients strengthening their offshore activity worldwide. This together with our $510m backlog, which is at the highest level since early 2020, gives us confidence in delivering our 2023 targets.”
