The extraordinary general meeting will vote on the financial restructuring plan, on second notice on November 13th, 2017, due to a lack of quorum on first notice

Paris, France – October 31, 2017 

CGG announces that a quorum of 22.48% of the share capital was present at the general meeting of shareholders held today, which allowed to vote on the ordinary part of the agenda, i.e. mainly approval of the 2016 accounts. However, such quorum did not allow the general meeting to vote on the resolutions required to implement the financial restructuring plan. Indeed, the required quorum for the extraordinary part of the general meeting on first notice is 25% of the share capital, and 20% on second notice.

Therefore, CGG, the creditors who support the proposed restructuring plan, and DNCA have agreed to maintain their undertakings, subject to the general meeting of shareholders being held no later than November 17th, 2017. Consequently, the general meeting of shareholders will be convened on second notice, on November 13th, 2017 at 11 am (at Dock Haussmann, 50, avenue du Président Wilson, 93200 La Plaine Saint-Denis), to vote on the resolutions required to implement the financial restructuring plan. A second convening notice relating to such general meeting will be published in the BALO n° 132 dated November 3rd, 2017. It is recalled that Bpifrance Participations (c. 9.35% of the share capital and 10.9% of the voting rights) and DNCA (c. 7.9% of the share capital and 7.8% of the voting rights) have undertaken to vote in favor of such resolutions.

Proxies and postal votes issued to vote on the extraordinary part of the agenda of the general meeting dated October 31st, 2017 remain valid for the general meeting to be held on November 13th, 20171.

Publication of the Q3 2017 results will also occur on November 13th, 2017.
