THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Dec. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — MIND Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIND) ("MIND" or the "Company") today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 third quarter ended October 31, 2021.
Revenues from Marine Technology Products sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were $8.3 million compared to $6.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 and $6.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.
The Company reported a loss from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 of approximately $2.1 million compared to a loss of $2.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 and a loss of $2.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.  Third quarter of fiscal 2022 net loss from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders was $(0.20) per share compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2022 net loss per share of $(0.25) and a net loss of $(0.24) per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was a loss of approximately $1.3 million compared to a loss of $1.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 and a loss of $1.5 in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.  Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, which is a non-GAAP measure, is defined and reconciled to reported net loss from continuing operations and cash provided by operating activities in the accompanying financial tables. These are the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles.
Backlog of Marine Technology Products as of October 31, 2021, was approximately $10.0 million compared to $11.7 million at July 31, 2021 and $8.2 million at October 31, 2020.  
Rob Capps, MIND’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "On November 22nd, we pre-released our expected fiscal 2022 third quarter results which demonstrated an uptick in orders and activity, as we had forecast.  Revenues from marine technology product sales rose 23% sequentially and were up 31% year-over-year.  Our order flow is increasing, as expected, and our backlog of approximately $10.0 million included orders for commercial sonar and source controller products, in addition to sonar systems for military applications.  Based on our backlog and ongoing order activity that is expected to include two anticipated large orders in the fourth quarter, we expect revenues from continuing operations in fiscal year 2022 to exceed those of fiscal 2021.
"As previously announced, on November 12th, we issued 432,000 shares of our 9% Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock in an underwritten public offering. This generated net proceeds to the Company of about $9.5 million, after underwriter discounts, commissions and other costs," added Capps.  "We also negotiated the sale of a substantial portion of our legacy leasing assets during the third quarter. This resulted in proceeds to the Company of over $2.5 million in the third quarter, with approximately another $2.0 million expected in the fourth quarter of this year. We believe the funds generated from our preferred stock offering, along with proceeds from the ongoing liquidation of our land leasing assets, will provide us with the liquidity and cash flow to execute on the expected increase in activity and to take advantage of any other opportunities that may present themselves in coming months.  Our balance sheet remains strong with zero debt, and our cost structure is lean and flexible. 
"Our long-term outlook remains positive as we progress with our strategic initiatives to expand our product offerings to meet the increasing needs of the maritime market, which will underpin our future growth," continued Capps.  "The continued disruptions in the global supply chain that began earlier this year do pose a risk to this favorable outlook. While not yet a major issue for us, we have experienced shortages for certain components and materials in addition to a surge in freight costs and prolonged shipping delays.  We have taken steps to mitigate these supply chain issues, however we expect to feel some impact in the remainder of this year. Based on our current assessment, we believe our fiscal fourth quarter results are likely to be about flat with the third quarter.  However, we do see upside opportunities depending on the timing of orders and deliveries from suppliers. Of course, implicit in this situation is downside risk should supply issues become more acute than currently anticipated.
"We continue to believe the positive trend for order flow will continue in the fourth quarter and beyond fiscal 2022, the underlying fundamentals of the marine market are improving, and we expect this to hold for the foreseeable future. The supply chain issues we have discussed do interject some uncertainty, but we are working hard to manage these temporary challenges. Our long-term initiatives have strategically positioned the Company toward becoming a leading provider of innovative marine technology and products," concluded Capps. 
NOTE: As has been previously disclosed, the Company is exiting the land leasing business.  Accordingly, the Equipment Leasing segment has been treated as a discontinued operation, and the associated results are excluded from the Company’s results from continuing operations for all periods presented.  Assets and liabilities associated with the Equipment Leasing segment have been reclassified as "held for sale" in the accompanying consolidated condensed balance sheet.

Forward-looking Statements
Certain statements and information in this press release concerning results for the quarter ended October 31, 2021 may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements contained in this press release other than statements of historical fact, including statements regarding our future results of operations and financial position, our business strategy and plans, and our objectives for future operations, are forward-looking statements. The words "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "plan," "intend," "should," "would," "could" or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, which are generally not historical in nature.  These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on us.  While management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made, there can be no assurance that future developments affecting us will be those that we anticipate.  All comments concerning our expectations for future revenues and operating results are based on our forecasts of our existing operations and do not include the potential impact of any future acquisitions or dispositions.  Our forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from our historical experience and our present expectations or projections. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, reductions in our customers’ capital budgets, our own capital budget, limitations on the availability of capital or higher costs of capital, volatility in commodity prices for oil and natural gas and the extent of disruptions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
For additional information regarding known material factors that could cause our actual results to differ from our projected results, please see our filings with the SEC, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K.
Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof.  We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements after the date they are made, unless required by law, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. All forward-looking statements included in this press release are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to herein.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Certain statements and information in this press release contain non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP.  Company management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Company management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze the Company’s business trends and to understand the Company’s performance. In addition, the Company may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as guides in its forecasting, budgeting, and long-term planning processes and to measure operating performance for some management compensation purposes. Any analysis of non-GAAP financial measures should be used only in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.  Reconciliation of Backlog, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is not included in this press release due to the inherent difficulty and impracticality of quantifying certain amounts that would be required to calculate the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. 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, stock-based compensation, impairment of intangible assets, other non-cash tax related items and non-cash costs of lease pool equipment sales. 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.
