PGS ASA: Q4 2022 Update

Share

January 10, 2023,Oslo, Norway: Based on a preliminary review, PGS expects to report Revenues and Other Income according to IFRS for Q4 2022 of approximately $217 million, compared to $210.4 million in Q4 2021. The Company expects Revenues and Other Income on a percentage-of-completion basis (“Produced Revenues”) for Q4 2022 of approximately $251 million, compared to $174.3 million in Q4 2021.

PGS will in connection with the Q4 2022 financial statements disclose alternative performance measures (“APMs”) on a percentage-of-completion basis, including Produced Revenues, to reflect MultiClient value creation. PGS will measure its revenues on a produced basis for its internal management reporting and consequently this will also be the basis for Segment Reporting in financial statements. The definition and reconciliation of Produced Revenues is provided at the end of this update*.

Contract revenues ended at approximately $111 million in Q4 2022, compared to $64.3 million in Q4 2021. MultiClient late sales revenues were approximately $92 million in Q4 2022, compared to $80.9 million in Q4 2021.

MultiClient pre-funding revenues based on IFRS were approximately $9 million in Q4 2022, compared to $60.0 million in Q4 2021. Estimated MultiClient pre-funding measured on percentage-of-completion basis (“Produced Pre-funding Revenues”) in Q4 2022 was $43 million compared to $23.9 million in Q4 2021.

Our Q4 Produced Revenuesincreased 44% year-over-year andare another confirmation of an improving marine seismic market. MultiClient late sales were strong in the quarter, driving full year 2022 late salesto approximately$327 million, which is the second-best year on record, and almost 50% higher than 2021. Followingrelocation of most of our vessels early in the quarter, production has been strong. Contract rates continue to improve, and our Q4 contract revenues are the highest since Q4 2014. MultiClient Produced Pre-funding Revenuesreflect strong industry support ofongoing projects, as well as good sales from projects where imaging is not yet completed, says President & CEO Rune Olav Pedersen.

PGS routinely releases information about 3D vessel utilization after the end of each quarter. The table below summarizes Q4 2022 vessel allocation:

The Q4 2022 vessel statistics includes six active 3D vessels. All cold-stacked** vessels are excluded from the statistics. The comparative periods are also based on six active 3D vessels.

The Company provides this information based on a preliminary summary of Q4 2022 numbers. The Company has not completed its financial reporting and related consolidation, review and control procedures, including the final review of all sales against the established revenue recognition criteria. The estimates provided in this release are therefore subject to change and the Q4 2022 financial statements finally approved and released by the Company may deviate from the information herein.

PGS will publish its Q4 2022 earnings release and capital markets day presentation on Thursday January 26, 2023 at approximately 07:00am Central European Time (CET). Presentation of the Q4 2022 results and capital markets day material is scheduled to start at 09:00am CET the same day.

*From January 1, 2022, PGS changed its Segment Reporting measurement to simplify external and internal reporting.

PGS will in connection with the Q4 2022 financial statements disclose alternative performance measures (“APMs”) on a percentage-of-completion basis. PGS will report Produced Revenues, Produced EBITDA and order book relating to future production. PGS will measure its revenues on a produced basis for its internal management reporting and consequently this will also be the basis for Segment Reporting in financial statements. PGS believes that the introduction of these APMs will improve transparency and provide better information financial statement users.

The APMs reflect the difference between recognizing MultiClient pre-funding revenues under IFRS compared to alternatively measuring such revenues on a percentage-of-completion basis as the project is progressing, which is a non GAAP measure. IFRS 15 reporting generally recognizes revenue from MultiClient pre-funding agreements at the “point in time” when the customer receives access to, or delivery of, the finished data.

Adjustments between IFRS revenues and Produced Revenues for each quarter in 2022 and 2021 are shown in the table below:

**The term "cold-stacked" is used when a vessel is taken out of operation for an extended period of time. Costs are reduced to a minimum, with the vessel preserved for a long idle time, all or most in-sea seismic equipment removed from the vessel, and typically the Company does not have available crew to operate the vessel.

Second quarter sales of instruments, particularly in the North American market, were challenged by a generally more subdued investment sentiment in our primary business segment, cell-based therapy.

Despite the unfavourable market conditions, our earnings continued to grow. While our market is currently affected by the prevailing macroeconomic environment, we have a strong underlying
