Paris, France – December 21, 2017

CGG announces that by an order issued today in CGG’s Chapter 15 Case, the US Bankruptcy Court recognized the ruling of the Commercial Court of Paris dated December 1st, 2017 approving its safeguard plan. The US Bankruptcy Court’s order gives full force and effect to the French Court’s approval ruling and prohibits CGG’s creditors from taking any action inconsistent with the safeguard plan in the United States.
