Dawson Geophysical Company Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Capital Budget Guidance for the Year 2015

Dawson Geophysical Company announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the company reported revenues of $73,722,000 against $76,766,000 a year ago. Loss from operations was $9,814,000 against income from operation of $2,822,000 a year ago. Loss before income tax was $9,905,000 against income before income tax of $2,339,000 a year ago. Net loss was $6,592,000 against net income of $1,652,000 a year ago. Basic and diluted loss per share attributable to common stock was $0.37 against basic and diluted income per share attributable to common stock of $0.12 a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $3,262,000 against net cash provided by operating activities of $23,350,000 a year ago. EBITDA was $1,441,000 against $12,656,000 a year ago. Revenues for the March 2015 quarter were negatively impacted by reduced client demand due to decreasing and uncertain commodity prices, client-directed project delays, severe weather conditions in many areas of operation, a weaker than anticipated Canadian season and reduced utilization rates of deployed data acquisition crews in the lower 48 United States. The company's capital budget for 2015 is anticipated at maintenance levels below the $10 million capital budget approved by the board of directors. Strategic investments in seismic equipment during the past three years are partially responsible for the lower 2015 capital budget. The company's balance sheet remains strong at March 31, 2015 with approximately $48,100,000 of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, $77,276,000 of working capital and $19,171,000 of debt and capital lease obligations.
