OSLO, Norway (21 July 2022) - TGS today reported interim financial results for Q2 2022.
Total revenue amounted to USD 230 million in Q2 2022 versus USD 72 million in Q2 2021. EBITDA was USD 197 million, and the operating result was USD 31 million, compared to USD 50 million and USD -15 million, respectively, in Q2 2021.
Percentage-of-completion (PoC) revenue (1) amounted to USD 136 million in Q2 2022, a significant increase from USD 54 million in Q2 2021.
Free cash flow (2) amounted to USD 59 million in Q2 2022, compared to USD 13 million in Q2 2021. After dividend payment of USD 16 million, the cash balance totaled USD 255 million on 30 June 2022 versus USD 223 million a year earlier.
The solid financial position allows TGS to maintain the quarterly dividend at USD 0.14 (NOK 1.39) per share in Q2 2022, as well as providing flexibility to execute the strategic M&A transactions announced in early July 2022.
“Q2 2022 was another solid quarter with late sales increasing 222%, driven by a further improvement of activity in frontier areas and transfer fees. With a quarter-end cash balance of approximately USD 255 million in addition to an undrawn revolving credit facility of USD 100 million, we have a solid financial position that can comfortably fund the exciting M&A transactions recently announced,” says Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.
