CGG, Veritas One Step Closer to Merger

Compagnie Generale de Geophysique (CGG) said Thursday that the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission have granted early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, relating to the previously announced merger agreement whereby Compagnie Generale de Geophysique will acquire Veritas.

On September 5, 2006, Veritas and CGG announced that they entered into a definitive agreement for the merger. The termination of the Hart-Scott-Rodino waiting period satisfies one of the merger conditions. Completion of the merger remains subject to receipt of shareholders and regulatory approvals, as well as the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.

CGG is a global participant in the oilfield services industry, providing a wide range of seismic data acquisition, processing and reservoir services to clients in the oil and gas exploration and production business. It is also a global manufacturer of geophysical equipment through its subsidiary Sercel.

Veritas DGC, Inc., headquartered in Houston, Texas, is a leading provider of integrated geophysical information and services to the petroleum industry worldwide.
