Andrew Speese Files Class Action against Dawson Geophysical Company, TGC Industries, Inc. and Riptide Acquisition Corp

On January 7, 2015, Andrew Speese, through his attorney, filed a purported shareholder class action and derivative action on behalf of himself and the other shareholders of Dawson Geophysical Company in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas (Midland/Odessa Division), against Dawson, its current directors, TGC Industries Inc. and Riptide Acquisition Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of TGC. The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that the members of Dawson's board of directors breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed strategic business combination with TGC, and that TGC's registration statement dated November 6, 2014, as subsequently amended, and prospectus filed on December 31, 2014 contain material omissions and materially misleading statements. The complaint seeks to enjoin Dawson, TGC and Merger Sub from taking any actions that would allow the consummation of the proposed strategic business combination contemplated by that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated October 8, 2014 by and among Dawson, TGC and Merger Sub or, in the event that the proposed strategic business combination is consummated, seeks a judgment for damages. In addition, on January 8, 2015, Dawson received a letter dated January 7, 2015 from legal counsel for Andrew Speese with respect to the lawsuit demanding that the board of directors of Dawson take legal action to remedy alleged breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the proposed strategic business combination and to recover damages caused by such alleged breaches.
