OSLO, Norway (13 April 2023) - Based on preliminary reporting from operating units, management of TGS ASA (“TGS”) expects IFRS revenues for Q1 2023 to be approximately USD 173 million, compared to USD 132 million in Q1 2022.
POC revenues* are expected to be approximately USD 229 million, up from USD 114 million in Q1 2022.
POC multi-client revenues amounted to approximately USD 143 million, with late sales accounting for approximately USD 46 million. The new Acquisition business unit (Magseis Fairfield ASA) contributed net revenues of approximately USD 79 million (USD 95 million gross) in Q1 2023.
Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS, commented: “The positive development in revenues continued in Q1 2023, with multi-client POC revenues increasing 30% y/y, despite softer than expected late sales. Furthermore, the Acquisition business unit performed strongly with a y/y growth of 26% in gross revenues**.
I’m also pleased to see the strong order inflow continue, with close to USD 250 million worth of new customer contracts signed in Q1 2023. Cash flow remains solid, with a gross cash position of around USD 207 million at quarter end.”
TGS will release its Q1 2023 results at approximately CET 07:00 am on 11 May 2023. CEO Kristian Johansen and CFO Sven Børre Larsen will present the results at CET 09:00 am during a live webcast.
