Mitcham Industries Reports Fiscal 2020 First Quarter Results

By PR Newswire,  June 05, 2019, 04:15:00 PM EDT


THE WOODLANDS, Texas, June 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitcham Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:MIND) ("Mitcham" or "the Company") today announced financial results for its fiscal 2020 first quarter ended April 30, 2019.

Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased 30% to $9.9 million, compared to $7.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.  The improvement was driven primarily by further growth within the Marine Technology Products segment.  Revenues from the Marine Technology Products segment rose 61% to $6.0 million in the first quarter, compared to $3.7 million in the same period last year.  Revenue from the Equipment Leasing segment was $3.9 million in the first quarter, relatively flat compared to the same period last year.  The operating loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 improved to $2.5 million as compared to a loss of $5.6 million in the first quarter of the prior fiscal year.

The Company reported a net loss of $2.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to a net loss of $5.9 million in the same period during fiscal 2019.  The net loss attributable to common shareholders of $2.9 million, or $(0.24) per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 improved from a loss of $6.3 million, or $(0.52) per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. 

Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was approximately $61,000 compared to a loss of approximately $1.5 million in the same period last year.  Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure, is defined and reconciled to reported net loss and cash provided by operating activities in the accompanying financial tables.

Rob Capps, Mitcham's Co-Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We continue to see robust order activity from our Marine Technology Products segment as demonstrated by the 61% year-over-year increase in top-line growth this quarter. Perhaps more importantly, our backlog of firm orders grew to $11.0 million as of April 30, 2019 from $8.7 million at January 31, 2019, an increase of approximately 26%.  Additionally, we have received approximately $5.1 million in bookings subsequent to April 30.  Included in this recent activity are orders for our new MA-X sonar technology which we unveiled at the Ocean Business conference in April of this year.  We are very pleased with the reception of this new technology thus far.

"We are beginning to benefit from the strategic actions taken during fiscal 2019 to streamline and enhance our business model," added Capps.  "For example, we completed the sale of our Australian subsidiary, SAP, during the first quarter.  This strategic move has given us the flexibility to better serve customers in Asia while reducing our exposure to lower margin sales of equipment from other OEM's.  We believe our Seamap business is also gaining traction.  Due to strong demand related to our SeaLink™ product line, our new production facility in Malaysia is now running at near full capacity and we are looking at ways to expand our production there.   Activity within the marine seismic market appears to be building, driven in part by the increase in nodal surveys.  Our backlog does not currently include significant amounts related to seismic source controllers. However, based on inquiries and discussions with customers, we believe activity within that product family will also ramp-up during the balance of the year and beyond.

"In the Equipment Leasing segment, we have experienced better than expected leasing activity.  While our belief that this part of our business will not return to historical levels has not changed, we do see opportunities within this part of our business. Leasing revenues excluding the sale of lease pool equipment have been relatively strong, increasing 25% over last year's first quarter.

"On the financial front, our capital structure remains strong, with no funded debt on our balance sheet and ample liquidity, including cash and cash equivalents of $8.1 million as of April 30, 2019.  In summary, we are very pleased with the strength of order activity so far this year and expect an improved year for Mitcham. We continue to expect positive operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2020."  

FISCAL 2020 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased compared to last year's first quarter to $9.9 million driven by higher marine technology products sales and equipment leasing revenues. Marine technology products sales increased 68% to $6.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $3.6 million in last year's first quarter.  Seamap sales increased 147% versus the prior year period, and Klein sales increased 3% compared to the same period last year. First quarter sales consisted of approximately $4.3 million of Seamap, $1.6 million from Klein, and $101,000 from SAP.

Equipment leasing revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, excluding equipment sales, were $3.3 million, an increase of 23% compared to the same period last year.  Lease pool equipment sales were $419,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $1.2 million in the first quarter a year ago. Other equipment sales were $138,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to $187,000 in the first quarter a year ago.

Lease pool depreciation expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased to $1.4 million from $2.7 million in the same period a year ago due to lease pool sales and minimal purchase of lease pool equipment in recent periods. 

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $5.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 versus $5.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and increased slightly compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.  Included in this quarter's costs are approximately $298,000 related to SAP which will not be recurring. As a percentage of revenues, SG&A expenses in the first quarter of 2020 decreased to 53% from 74% in last year's first quarter.

1.

EBITDA is defined as net income before (a) interest income and interest expense, (b) provision for (or benefit from) income taxes and (c) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash foreign exchange gains and losses, non-cash costs of lease pool equipment sales, stock-based compensation and other non-cash tax related items. We consider EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be important indicators for the performance of our business, but not measures of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with GAAP. We have included these non-GAAP financial measures because management utilizes this information for assessing our performance and liquidity, and as indicators of our ability to make capital expenditures, service debt and finance working capital requirements and we believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are measurements that are commonly used by analysts and some investors in evaluating the performance and liquidity of companies such as us. In particular, we believe that it is useful to our analysts and investors to understand this relationship because it excludes transactions not related to our core cash operating activities.  We believe that excluding these transactions allows investors to meaningfully trend and analyze the performance of our core cash operations. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities or as alternatives to net income as indicators of operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. In evaluating our performance as measured by EBITDA, management recognizes and considers the limitations of this measurement. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense or other obligations such as capital expenditures. Accordingly, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are only two of the measurements that management utilizes.   Other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable with similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
