Revenue in the Seismic Data segment decreased by $3.2 million (85%) attributable to the timing of multi-client surveys. In Q3 2011, the Company was in the process of acquiring a new survey while in Q3 2012 there were no surveys in progress or completed. Revenue in the Software and Data segment increased by $1.9 million (82%) due to a large data transaction completed during Q3 2012.

Operating expenses decreased by $1.9 million (24%) to $6 million in Q3 2012 from $7.9 million in Q3 2011. Salaries and wages were down $177,000 (4%) due to a slightly lower headcount and lower severance costs.

Professional fees decreased by $171,000 (33%), bad debt expense decreased by $107,000 (653%) and direct selling costs decreased by $331,000 (87%). Depreciation and amortization increased by $11,000 (1%) mainly due to lower depreciation on property and equipment offset by higher amortization on deferred development costs.

Nine months ended September 30, 2012

Divestco generated net income for the first nine months of 2012 of $2.5 million ($0.04 per share - basic and diluted) compared to a net loss of $3.8 million ($0.06 per share - basic and diluted) for the same period in 2011.

EBITDA and funds from operations do not include capital expenditures of $10.4 million, mainly comprised of the cost of acquiring new seismic surveys data during the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

During the first three quarters of 2012, Divestco generated revenue of $32.4 million compared to $29 million during the same period in 2011, an increase of $3.4 million (12%). Revenue in the Seismic Data segment increased by $3.4 million (37%) as the Company completed three seismic participation surveys and a large data library sale, as well as entered into a settlement agreement concerning one of its legal actions. Revenue in the Software and Data segment increased by $1.6 million (23%) primarily due to a significant data transaction completed in 2012. Revenue in the Services segment decreased by $1.6 million (12%) as demand for geomatics was stronger, while demand for seismic processing and land management services was weaker.

Operating expenses decreased by $6 million (23%) to $20.2 million in the first nine months of 2012 from $26.2 million during the same period in 2011. Salaries and wages were down $1.2 million (8%) due to lower headcounts and a significant decrease in severance costs. G&A expenses were down $4.8 million (41%) as occupancy costs decreased by $3.8 million (54%) due to the Company surrendering a portion of its office space lease in 2011. Communication expenses were down $148,000 (41%), professional fees decreased by $400,000 (24%) and direct selling costs decreased by $747,000 (71%), partially offset by an increase in bad debt expense by $111,000. Depreciation and amortization increased by $3.3 million (54%) mainly due to the completion of three seismic participation surveys in during the nine months ended September 30, 2012, partially offset by lower depreciation on property and equipment.

Working Capital

As at September 30, 2012, Divestco had a working capital deficit of $2.9 million (excluding deferred revenue of $2.8 million) compared to working capital of $297,000 (excluding deferred revenue of $4.6 million) as at December 31, 2011. The decline in working capital from the end of 2011 was primarily due to an unpredictably slow summer which directly impacted the Services segment and delayed the signing and delivery of several contracts. While the Company has significantly reduced its payables since the end of 2011, receivables fell as well. In addition, $1.4 million of the subordinated loan was reclassified from long-term to current liabilities as compared to December 31, 2011 as the loan matures on April 30, 2013. The Company's funded debt to equity ratio at September 30, 2012 was 0.60:1 (December 31, 2011 - 0.64:1), with the improvement due to better operating results for the year offset by slightly higher debt.

Seismic Update

During the first nine months of 2012, Divestco completed three 3D seismic participation surveys (Brazeau, Big Valley and Ante Creek), covering an area of approximately 389 square kilometers. Total cost for the three seismic surveys was $14.3 million, with $5.1 million incurred in 2011.

Mr. Stephen Popadynetz, CEO, President and CFO: "Over the last two years Divestco has made great strides to improve its efficiencies and cut costs. Unfortunately, in the third quarter of 2012, we saw an unexpected slowdown in the industry which resulted in a net loss. As activity levels in the fourth quarter return to more traditional levels for this time of year and with other additional cost cutting measures, mostly centered on lease optimization set to take effect in January 2013, the Company expects to return back to profitability. As well, Divestco remains committed to strengthening its financial position and balance sheet. We are also pleased with the progress we have made towards rebuilding our seismic data library. To date, we have added more than 770 square kilometers of seismic to our library. Overall demand for seismic data and general activity levels in the industry is trending positively and Divestco is currently reviewing a number of new seismic programs for the coming year. With the strong cost cutting measures taken over the last two years in place, Divestco is on a well positioned path for sustained profitability and growth. We look forward to continue delivering positive earnings and better results for our shareholders."

Additional GAAP Measures

The Company's condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IFRS. Certain measures in this document do not have any standardized meaning as prescribed by IFRS and are considered additional GAAP measures. While these measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers, they are described and presented in this MD&A to provide shareholders and potential investors with additional information regarding the Company's results, liquidity, and its ability to generate funds to finance its operations. These measures include:

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA")

Divestco uses EBITDA as a key measure to evaluate the performance of its segments and divisions as well as the Company overall, with the closest IFRS measure being net income or loss. EBITDA is a measure commonly reported and widely used by investors as indicators of the Company's operating performance and ability to incur and service debt, and as a valuation metric. The Company believes EBITDA assists investors in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis without regard to financing decisions and depreciation and amortization, which are non-cash in nature and can vary significantly depending upon accounting methods or non-operating factors such as historical cost.

EBITDA is not a calculation based on IFRS and should not be considered an alternative to net income or loss in measuring the Company's performance. As well, EBITDA should not be used as an exclusive measure of cash flow, because it does not consider the impact of working capital growth, capital expenditures, debt principal reductions and other sources and uses of cash, which are disclosed in the consolidated statements of cash flows. While EBITDA has been disclosed herein to permit a more complete comparative analysis of the Company's operating performance and debt servicing ability relative to other companies, investors should be cautioned that EBITDA as reported by Divestco may not be comparable in all instances to EBITDA as reported by other companies. Investors should also carefully consider the specific items included in Divestco's computation of EBITDA.

The following is a reconciliation of EBITDA with net income (loss):

Funds from operations

Divestco reports funds from operations because it is a key measure used by management to evaluate its performance and to assess the ability of the Company to finance operating and investing activities. Funds from operations excludes certain working capital changes and other sources and uses of cash, which are disclosed in the consolidated statements of cash flows.

Funds from operations is not a calculation based on IFRS and should not be considered an alternative to the consolidated statements of cash flows. Funds from operations is a measure that can be used to gauge Divestco's capacity to generate discretionary cash flow. Investors should be cautioned that funds from operations as reported by Divestco may not be comparable in all instances to funds from operations as reported by other companies. While the closest IFRS measure is cash from operating activities, funds from operations is considered relevant because it provides an indication of how much cash generated by operations is available before proceeds from divested assets and changes in certain working capital items.

The following reconciles funds from operations with cash from operating activities:

This press release contains forward-looking information related to the Company's capital expenditures, projected growth, view and outlook with respect to future oil and gas prices and market conditions, and demand for its products and services. Statements that contain words such as "could', "should", "can", "anticipate", "expect", "believe", "will", "may" and similar expressions and statements relating to matters that are not historical facts constitute "forward-looking information" within the meaning applicable by Canadian securities legislation. Although management of the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking information are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to have been correct because, should one or more of the risks materialize, or should the assumptions underlying forward-looking statements or forward-looking information prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in this press release as intended, planned, anticipated, believed, estimated or expected. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements or forward-looking information. All of the forward-looking statements and forward-looking information of the Company contained in this press release are expressly qualified, in their entirety, by this cautionary statement. Except where required by law, the Company does not assume any obligation to update these forward-looking statements or forward-looking information if conditions or opinions should change.

In particular, this press release contains forward-looking statements pertaining to the following: Company's ability to keep debt and liquidity at acceptable levels, improve/maintain its working capital position and maintain profitability in the current economy; availability of external and internal funding for future operations; relative future competitive position of the Company; nature and timing of growth; oil and natural gas production levels; planned capital expenditure programs; supply and demand for oil and natural gas; future demand for products/services; commodity prices; impact of Canadian federal and provincial governmental regulation on the Company; expected levels of operating costs, finance costs and other costs and expenses; future ability to execute acquisitions and dispositions of assets or businesses; expectations regarding the Company's ability to raise capital and to add to seismic data through new seismic shoots and acquisition of existing seismic data; treatment under tax laws; and new accounting pronouncements.
