Mar 19, 2014, 10:15 ET from Block & Leviton LLP

BOSTON, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shares in Global Geophysical Services, Inc. ("Global" or the "Company") (NYSE: GGS) fell by 60 percent after the provider of seismic data to energy companies announced that its financial statements for each of its fiscal years dating back to 2009, plus the first three quarters of 2013 "should no longer be relied upon because of accounting errors resulting from material weaknesses in the company's internal controls." 

Global has also indicated that its restatement for the fiscal year 2011 would result in a decrease in revenue of $4.8 million.  As such, the Company's restated revenues could exacerbate liquidity issues for Global, as the Company currently is servicing $330.2 million in debt compared to total available liquidity of $16.8 million.  The Company has reported that it is currently reviewing financial and strategic alternatives with its advisors, Evercore Group and Alvarez & Marsal North America.
