TGS: TGS - Q1 2016 Update

Q1 2016 Update

ASKER (8 April, 2016) - Based on preliminary reporting from operating units,
TGS management expects net revenues for the first quarter of 2016 to be
approximately USD 64 million.

With operational investments of approximately USD 53 million and good cash
collections in the quarter, the cash balance increased to around USD 210
million. This is in addition to the undrawn revolving credit facility of USD
75 million.

The financial guidance released on 7 January, 2016 remains unchanged:

* TGS expects multi-client investments of approximately 220 MUSD
* Multi-client investments are expected to be prefunded 45 to 50%

"This last quarter has arguably been the most severe of this down cycle with
many customers focusing on cost and headcount reduction resulting in a
significant pull back from exploration spending. TGS will continue our strong
focus on cost control, cash flow and maintaining a healthy balance sheet in
this challenging market", commented Kristian Johansen, CEO, TGS.

The full first quarter earnings release is scheduled for 21 April 2016.
