Mitcham Industries Reports Fiscal 2019 Third Quarter Results
[December 06, 2018]

Mitcham Industries Reports Fiscal 2019 Third Quarter Results


HUNTSVILLE, Texas, Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitcham Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIND) ("Mitcham" or "the Company") today announced financial results for its fiscal 2019 third quarter ended October 31, 2018.

Total revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 71% to $14.7 million, compared to $8.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 and $8.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, driven by both an increase in orders for marine technology products as well as an uptick in leasing revenues.  Revenues from the Marine Technology Products segment rose 55% to $9.3 million in the third quarter, compared to $6.0 million in the same period last year and $6.0 million in the second quarter of this fiscal year.  Revenue from the Equipment Leasing segment increased 97% to $5.4 million in the third quarter compared to the same period last year.  The operating loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 improved to $349,000 as compared to $4.8 million in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year and $4.6 million in the second quarter of the current fiscal year.

During the third quarter, the Company sold its Russian land leasing operations, through the sale of its wholly-owned Russian subsidiary.  Since the Company no longer has exposure to Russian Ruble to US Dollar translation risk, United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") require the cumulative translation loss related to the Russian Ruble that had previously been a component of Other Comprehensive Income in the amount of approximately $5.4 million be charged to income in the current period. Accordingly, a loss of approximately $4.9 million, or $(0.40) per share was recorded in third quarter of fiscal 2019 related to the sale of these operations. The Company reported a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $5.6 million, or $(0.47) per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to a net loss of $5.5 million, or $(0.46) per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.  Excluding the impact of the one-time loss related to the sale of the Company's Russian operations, the loss related to common shareholders in the third quarter was $735,000, or $(0.06) per share.

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 third quarter of fiscal 2019 was approximately $3.4 million compared to a loss of approximately $406,000 in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA, which is not a measure determined in accordance with 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 third quarter results reflect marked improvement  compared to not only the third quarter of last year but also to the entire first half of this fiscal year. This improved performance is slightly better than originally anticipated and reflects the impact from the strategic steps we have taken over the past several years.

"As previously anticipated, our Marine Technology Products segment experienced an increase in activity during the third quarter, resulting in a significant improvement in top-line growth.  Our Seamap business delivered a digital source controller system during the quarter; and there has been a healthy increase in demand for spare parts and repairs.  The large installed base of Seamap products is providing substantial upside in terms of increased repairs and maintenance, and we expect that business to continue to grow in the fourth quarter and into fiscal 2020. We anticipate the delivery of our first SeaLink system in the fourth quarter, as well as an additional digital source controller system.  Increased marine exploration activity, including ocean bottom node surveys, has resulted in increased inquiries for source controller and RGPS positioning systems.  We expect SeaLink repair activity to continue to ramp-up in the fourth quarter and beyond.

"For our Klein business, we saw a significant improvement from recent periods. This was driven in part by the delivery of a previously announced order for our flagship 5900 sonar system for the Royal Netherlands Navy. We are experiencing a pick-up in activity at Klein, and we are receiving an increasing level of inquiries from our continued engagement with various navies in addition to hydrographic and oceanographic companies. 

"On the Equipment Leasing front, we finalized our exit from the Russian market during the third quarter, resulting in a decrease in overhead costs. The restructuring of our leasing business over the past couple of years is now paying off, and we have started to benefit from our cost reductions efforts. Leasing activity is experiencing increased activity in the United States, Colombia, and Europe.  This contributed to a 53% increase in leasing revenues over the prior year quarter.

"On the financial front, our capital structure remains strong, with no debt on our balance sheet and ample liquidity, including cash and cash equivalents of $5.6 million as of October 31, 2018.  We are excited to be benefitting from our strategic re-positioning of the company as evidenced by the improved results from both Seamap and Klein this quarter. As we build on our position in the marine technology marketplace, we expect to grow the company by taking advantage of the opportunities afforded us in several new markets. We expect our fourth quarter will continue this trend."

FISCAL 2019 THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

Total revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 increased compared to last year's third quarter to $14.7 million driven mainly by increased marine technology products sales. Marine technology products sales increased 55% to $9.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to $6.0 million in last year's third quarter.  Seamap sales increased 51% versus the prior year period, and Klein sales increased 104% compared to the same period last year. Third quarter sales consisted of approximately $5.5 million of Seamap, $3.1 million from Klein (including $409,000 of inter-company sales which are eliminated in consolidation) and $1.1 million by SAP.

Equipment leasing revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2019, excluding lease pool equipment sales, were $3.2 million, an increase of 53% compared to the same period last year.  Lease pool equipment sales were $867,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to $247,000 in the third quarter a year ago. Other equipment sales were $1.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to $412,000 in the third quarter a year ago.

Lease pool depreciation expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased to $2.2 million from $3.6 million in the same period a year ago due to a combination of lower lease pool purchases and increased lease pool sales over the past year.   

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased slightly to $4.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 versus $4.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, despite the effect of increased activity and costs related to the SeaLink product line in the fiscal 2019 period.  These costs in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 declined significantly from $5.5 million in the second quarter this year as a result of various cost reduction initiatives.  As a percentage of revenues, SG&A expenses in the third quarter of 2019 declined to 33% from 56% in last year's third 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 and stock-based compensation. 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.
