EMGS to Cut 15% of Workforce

Norway’s Electromagnetic Geoservices (EMGS) will reduce its global headcount by about 15 per cent due to decline activity levels on the market.

The Oslo-listed company informed it will implement several structural changes to the organisation, including centralising and / or merging departments, in addition to other measures to reduce cost.

EMGS said it expects to book restructuring charges of approximately USD 0.7 million in the second quarter of 2016. The additional cost measures will be implemented immediately and yield effects gradually, and are expected to further reduce the annual cost base by approximately USD 10 million.

“Whilst the interest in our technology continues to be high, our customers are delaying, cancelling or reducing work scopes, resulting in a lower demand for our services. Therefore, we continue to focus on cost control and cash flow, and implement changes to increase the efficiency of the organisation,” says Christiaan Vermeijden, CEO of EMGS.
