Mitcham Industries Reports Fiscal 2018 First Quarter Results

HUNTSVILLE, Texas, June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitcham Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIND) ("the Company") today announced financial results for its fiscal 2018 first quarter ended April 30, 2017.

Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 were $18.4 million compared to $11.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.  Revenues from the Equipment Manufacturing and Sales segment decreased slightly to $6.9 million in the first quarter, compared to $7.2 million in the same period last year.  Revenues from the Equipment Leasing segment were $11.5 million in the first quarter compared to $4.5 million in the same period last year.  During the quarter, the Company sold lease pool equipment for proceeds of $8.8 million as it continues to redeploy capital into higher return investments. The Company reported a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $2.9 million, or $(0.24) per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to a net loss of $6.4 million, or $(0.53) per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.  Cash flow provided by operating activities was approximately $1.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $1.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, non-cash costs of lease pool equipment sales and non-cash foreign exchange gains and losses) for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was approximately $9.0 million compared to $2.2 million in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA, which is not a measure determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), 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, "Our first quarter unfolded essentially as anticipated as we continue to make progress in re-positioning our Company to be a more significant player in the marine industry and decreasing our exposure to oil and gas exploration activities.  We are taking advantage of structural changes in the seismic data acquisition industry to rationalize our lease pool of equipment and re-deploy capital into more attractive opportunities.

"Reviewing our financial results for the first fiscal quarter of 2018, the Equipment Manufacturing and Sales segment revenues were essentially flat year-over-year and slightly higher sequentially, which remains below our expectation.  Lower than expected segment revenues were primarily due to delays in certain orders and the timing of deliveries.

"Our scope of business in this market is evolving and becoming a larger part of our total business. We are pursuing several new opportunities with commercial and military applications, both internationally and in the United States.  We currently anticipate a stronger fiscal year in this segment driven by anticipated deliveries and improved visibility into oceanographic and hydrographic opportunities. We are not only seeing a greater number of opportunities as we continue to penetrate new markets and add new customers, but we are also seeing the scope of some of these projects become larger as well.

"Land and marine seismic exploration activity continues to be depressed from historical levels throughout both hemispheres, with a significant excess supply of equipment overhanging the market. However, improved oil prices have generated increased levels of both inquiry and bid activity and we are starting to very slowly recover from the significant downturn of the last two years.

"We continue to carry a pristine balance sheet with no debt. Despite the major downturn that we have experienced over the past two years, we generated cash, repaid debt and strengthened our capital structure.  We do anticipate generating positive EBITDA and operating cash flow in the current fiscal year.

"As we move through fiscal 2018, we see a number of exciting opportunities for our manufacturing business and also expect continued slow improvement in our leasing business. Our strategic intent going forward is to continue to diversify our sales away from sole dependence on the oil and gas industry.  This will be done primarily by expanding our equipment and manufacturing business, both organically and through acquisitions, to gain a greater foothold in the global marine industry.  Based on these factors, we currently anticipate that fiscal 2018 will deliver improved financial results over fiscal 2017, not in small part due to our strategic repositioning of the Company as well as improved stability in the oil and gas markets."

FISCAL 2018 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

The first quarter revenue increase was driven for the second consecutive quarter by a large increase in lease pool equipment sales compared to the same quarter a year ago.  Equipment and manufacturing sales decreased 4% year-over-year, while equipment leasing revenues, excluding lease pool equipment sales, decreased 25% from the first quarter of fiscal 2017.  Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 were $18.4 million compared to $11.7 million in the same period last year.  A significant portion of our revenues is typically generated from geographic areas outside the United States.  The percentage of revenues from international customers was approximately 55% (approximately 84% excluding proceeds from lease pool equipment sales) in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to approximately 77% in last year's first fiscal quarter. 

Equipment manufacturing and sales decreased slightly to $6.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $7.2 million in last year's first quarter.  The first quarter sales consisted of approximately $4.9 million of Seamap equipment, $0.9 million from Klein (including $0.2 million of intra-segment sales) and $1.3 million by SAP.   

Equipment leasing revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, excluding lease pool equipment sales, were $2.7 million compared to $3.6 million in the same period last year.  The year-over-year decrease in first quarter equipment leasing revenues was driven by a reduction in exploration activity.

Lease pool and other equipment sales were $8.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to $0.9 million in the first quarter a year ago. 

Lease pool depreciation expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 decreased to $4.2 million from $6.9 million in the same period a year ago, due to the reduction in lease pool purchases and sales of lease pool equipment in fiscal years 2016 and 2017, as well as the current fiscal year.   

General and administrative expenses decreased to $4.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 versus $5.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, due to the impact of continuing cost reduction efforts.

(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 and stock-based compensation. This definition of Adjusted EBITDA is consistent with the definition in the Credit Agreement.  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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("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. The Credit Agreement contained financial covenants based on EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes 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.
