Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) recorded revenues of USD 12.0 million in the fourth quarter 2016, down from USD 20.5 million in the fourth quarter 2015 and up from USD 4.5 million in the third quarter 2016.

Contract sales totalled USD 8.0 million, while multi-client sales amounted to USD 4.0 million. The Company has reduced its quarterly cost base, consisting of all operational costs including multi-client investments, from USD 29.4 million in the fourth quarter last year to USD 14.3 million this quarter. EBITDA ended at negative USD 2.1 million, up from negative USD 8.0 million in the fourth quarter 2015. Free cash decreased with USD 1.7 million from the previous quarter.

During the quarter, the BOA Thalassa worked on the announced contract in Malaysia. Atlantic Guardian has acquired data on multi-client projects in the Barents Sea.

"We continue to be challenged by a market in which cost controls, reduced spending and reduced activity take center stage. However, technology improvements, the cost reduction program and an overall organisational realignment, as announced over the course of the year, have put us in a much better position going forward." says CEO of EMGS, Christiaan Vermeijden.
