Mitcham Industries Reports Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results PR Newswire HUNTSVILLE, Texas, June 4, 2013 HUNTSVILLE, Texas, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitcham Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIND) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2014 first quarter ended April 30, 2013. Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $27.3 million compared to $34.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Equipment leasing revenues were $20.1 million in the first quarter compared to $21.0 million in the same period last year. Seamap equipment sales were $3.9 million in the first quarter compared to $10.5 million in the same period last year. Net income for the first quarter was $6.3 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $8.5 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $15.7 million, or 58% of revenues, compared to $19.8 million, or 57% of revenues, in the same period last year. EBITDA, which is not a measure determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), is defined and reconciled to reported net income and cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable GAAP measures, in the accompanying financial tables. Bill Mitcham, President and CEO, stated, "Our first quarter transpired as we had anticipated and discussed in our last conference call. Despite some expected headwinds, our equipment leasing revenues were roughly flat with a year ago largely due to continued softness in land leasing activity in the United States, Latin America and Europe, as well as a temporary slowdown in marine leasing. These hurdles were partially offset by higher leasing revenues in Canada, Russia and the Pacific Rim. Going into this quarter, we thought Canada might be even stronger, with some additional working days, but those did not materialize as our Canadian winter season was mostly finished in early April. "As we expected, due to our customers' delivery schedules, Seamap sales were lower than a year ago as there were no major GunLink or BuoyLink system shipments in this year's first quarter. Seamap revenues in the first quarter were driven solely by after-market business and other equipment sales. This compares to a strong first quarter a year ago, which included the sale of two GunLink 4000 systems and three BuoyLink systems in addition to after-market business. We expect to deliver one GunLink 4000 system and two BuoyLink systems in the second quarter of this year, including our new BuoyLink 4DX product. We anticipate a stronger level of activity for Seamap in the balance of fiscal 2014. "There are several encouraging signs occurring in our key leasing markets. We are seeing indications of renewed activity in Latin America, where we are delivering two new contracts of cable and cable free channels for second and third quarter work, and we currently anticipate a stronger second half of the fiscal year in that area. In Europe, bidding has picked up considerably, and we are seeing improving activity, primarily in Eastern Europe. We now expect an improved back half of the year, with stronger utilization of our equipment in the region. Also, we were recently awarded summer work in Russia, which will also enhance our equipment utilization. "The Pacific Rim and Asia continue at their strong pace, with additional projects on the horizon. First quarter marine leasing revenues dipped slightly below a year ago as certain projects were completed and there were temporary delays to the start of several new projects; however, we expect much of that equipment to be working again before the end of the second quarter. We continue to see healthy fundamentals in the marine seismic market in both leasing and sales. FISCAL 2014 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $27.3 million compared to $34.6 million a year ago. A significant portion of our revenues are typically generated from geographic areas outside the United States, and during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the percentage of revenues from international customers was approximately 90% compared to 82% in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Equipment leasing revenues, excluding equipment sales, were $20.1 million compared to $21.0 million in the same period a year ago. This year's first quarter equipment leasing revenues were hindered by continued weakness in land leasing activity in the United States, Latin America and Europe and a temporary slowdown in marine leasing. Lease pool equipment sales were $0.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $2.3 million in the first quarter a year ago. Sales of new seismic, hydrographic and oceanographic equipment were $2.4 million compared to $0.7 million in the first quarter a year ago. Seamap equipment sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $3.9 million compared to $10.5 million in the same period a year ago. There were no major GunLink or BuoyLink system shipments in the first quarter of fiscal 2014; therefore, sales were comprised entirely of other equipment sales and after-market business, including replacement parts, engineering services and ongoing support and repair services. Lease pool depreciation expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $7.4 million compared to $8.4 million in the same period a year ago, representing a 12% decline, due to certain equipment becoming fully depreciated and the decline in the rate of lease pool additions in this year's first quarter. Lease pool additions in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $1.7 million compared to $15.9 million in the first quarter of last fiscal year. Gross profit in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 declined to $14.6 million from $16.9 million in the first quarter a year ago, however, gross profit margin increased to 53% from 49% a year ago. General and administrative expenses were approximately $6.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $5.3 million for same period a year ago. SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM In April 2013, our Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program for up to 1.0 million shares of common stock through December 31, 2014. During the fiscal 2014 first quarter, we repurchased approximately 100,000 shares of common stock at an average cost of approximately $14.79 per share, before entering our quarterly blackout period on May 1, 2013. These purchases were made in open market transactions. Future purchases may be made from time to time, based on market conditions, legal requirements and other corporate considerations, in the open market or otherwise on a discretionary basis. We expect to finance any repurchases from a combination of cash on hand, cash provided by operating activities and proceeds from our revolving credit facility.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation. We consider EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be important indicators for the performance of our business, but not measures of performance 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 covenants of our revolving credit agreement require us to maintain a minimum level of 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 and liquidity 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.
