Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Dawson Geophysical Company (NASDAQ GS: DWSN) Merger

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Dawson Geophysical Company (“Dawson” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: DWSN) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to merge with TGC Industries, Inc. (“TGC”) (NASDAQ GS: TGE).

Under the terms of the agreement, following a 1-for-3 reverse stock split by TGC, Dawson shareholders will receive 1.76 shares of TGC split-effected common stock for each share of Dawson common stock held at the effective time of the transaction, with cash to be paid in lieu of any fractional shares.
