Forward Looking Statements
Statements in this presentation that relate to forecasts, estimates or other expectations regarding future
events, including without limitation, statements regarding our recently completed transaction, technological
advancements and the companies’ financial position, business strategy and plans and objectives of
management for future operations, may be deemed to be forward-looking statements within the meaning
of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. When
used in this presentation, words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” and
similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements
are based on the beliefs of management as well as assumptions made by and information currently
available to management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forwardlooking statements as a result of certain factors, including but not limited to the risk that the benefits from
our recent strategic business combination with TGC Industries, Inc. (TGC) may not be fully realized or may
take longer to realize than expected; the ability to promptly and effectively integrate the businesses of
Dawson and TGC; the reaction of the companies’ customers, employees and counterparties to the
transaction; diversion of management time on transaction-related issues; the volatility of oil and natural gas
prices; dependence upon energy industry spending; disruptions in the global economy; industry
competition; reduced utilization; delays, reductions or cancellations of service contracts; high fixed costs of
operations and high capital requirements; external factors affecting our crews such as weather interruptions
and inability to obtain land access rights of way; the type of contracts we enter into; crew productivity;
limited number of customers; credit risk related to the companies’ customers; the availability of capital
resources and operational disruptions. A discussion of these and other factors, including risks and
uncertainties with respect to Dawson is set forth in Dawson’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended
September 30, 2014, and with respect to TGC, is set forth in TGC’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended
December 31, 2013. Dawson and TGC disclaim any intention or obligation to revise any forward-looking
statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
