MITCHAM INDUSTRIES, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)
1. Organization
Mitcham Industries, Inc., a Texas corporation (the “Company”), was incorporated in 1987. The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Seamap International Holdings Pte, Ltd. (“Seamap”), and its wholly owned subsidiary, Klein Marine Systems, Inc. (“Klein”), designs, manufactures and sells a broad range of proprietary products for the seismic, hydrographic and offshore industries with product sales and support facilities based in New Hampshire, Singapore, Malaysia, the United Kingdom and Texas. The Company, together with its wholly owned Canadian subsidiary, Mitcham Canada, ULC (“MCL”); its wholly owned Hungarian subsidiary, Mitcham Europe Ltd. (“MEL”); and its branch operations in Colombia, provides full-service equipment leasing, sales and service to the seismic industry worldwide. In February 2019 the Company sold its wholly owned Australian subsidiary Seismic Asia Pacific Pty Ltd (“SAP”) and in August 2018 the Company sold its wholly owned Russian subsidiary, Mitcham Seismic Eurasia LLC (“MSE”). See Note 12 to our condensed consolidated financial statements for more information. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
These consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. The Company has a history of losses, has had negative cash from operating activities in the last two years and may not have access to sources of capital that were available in prior periods. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic and the decline in oil prices during the quarter ended April 30, 2020 have created significant uncertainty and could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial position, results of operations and liquidity. Accordingly, substantial uncertainty has arisen regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result should the Company not be able to continue as a going concern.
2. Basis of Presentation
The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of January 31, 2020 for the Company has been derived from audited consolidated financial statements. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 31, 2020. In the opinion of the Company’s management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position as of April 30, 2020, the results of operations for the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019, the cash flows for the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019, and the statement of shareholders’ equity for the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019, have been included in these condensed consolidated financial statements. The foregoing interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the full fiscal year ending January 31, 2021.
3. New Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (“Topic 740”): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which simplifies the accounting for income taxes by eliminating certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and by clarifying and amending existing guidance to improve consistent application. This ASU is effective for the annual period beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within that annual period. Certain amendments within this ASU are required to be applied on a retrospective basis for all periods presented; others are to be applied using a modified retrospective approach with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings, if any, as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is adopted; and yet others are to be applied using either basis. All other amendments not specified in the ASU should be applied on a prospective basis. Early adoption is permitted. An entity that elects to early adopt in an interim period should reflect any adjustments as of the beginning of the annual period that includes that interim period. Additionally, an entity that elects early adoption must adopt all the amendments in the same period. The Company is currently evaluating the new guidance to determine the impact it will have on its consolidated financial statements.
In August 2018, the SEC adopted amendments to simplify certain disclosure requirements, as set forth in Securities Act Release No. 33-10532, Disclosure Update and Simplification, which includes a requirement for entities to present the changes in shareholders’ equity in the interim financial statements in quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. This amendment is effective for all filings made on or after November 5, 2018. Considering the timing of effectiveness of the amendment and proximity to the filing date for most filers’ quarterly reports, the SEC has allowed for a filer’s first presentation of the changes in shareholders’ equity to be included in its Form 10-Q for the quarter that begins after the effective date. The Company adopted the SEC’s amendment to interim disclosures in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and has presented the changes in shareholders’ equity on an interim basis.
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) as modified by subsequently issued ASUs 2018-01, 2018-10, 2018-11 and 2018-20. The Company adopted the standard effective February 1, 2019. We have elected to apply the current period transition approach as introduced by ASU 2018-11 for our transition at

6


February 1, 2019 and we have elected to apply several of the practical expedients in conjunction with accounting policy elections. See Note 6 to our condensed consolidated financial statements for additional details.
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement, which modifies the disclosure requirements on fair value measurement by removing, modifying and adding certain disclosures. This ASU is effective for the annual period beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within that annual period. The Company adopted this guidance effective February 1, 2020. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Compensation - Stock Compensation (“Topic 718”): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which expands the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees except for certain circumstances. The Company adopted this guidance in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
4. Revenue from Contracts with Customers
Effective February 1, 2018 the Company adopted ASU 2014-09 as amended (the “New Revenue Standard” or “Topic 606”), using the modified retrospective method applied to those contracts that were not completed as of February 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning after January 31, 2018 are presented under Topic 606 and pertain only to our Marine Technology Products segment. Revenues related to our Equipment Leasing segment are not included in the scope of Topic 606.

The revenue from products manufactured and sold by our Seamap and Klein businesses, as well as the revenue from products marketed and sold by our SAP business, is generally recognized at a point in time, or when the customer takes possession of the product, based on the terms and conditions stipulated in our contracts with customers. Our Seamap business also provides Software Maintenance Agreements (“SMA”) to customers who have an active license for software embedded in Seamap products. The revenue from SMA’s is recognized over time, with the total value of the SMA amortized in equal monthly amounts over the life of the contract, which is typically twelve months. The Company sold SAP during the first quarter of fiscal 2020. See Note 12 to our condensed consolidated financial statements for more information.

Pursuant to practical expedients and exemptions included in the New Revenue Standard, sales and transaction-based taxes are excluded from revenue. Also, we do not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations for contacts with an original expected duration of one year or less. Additionally, we expense costs incurred to obtain contracts when incurred because the amortization period would have been one year or less. These costs are recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses.

As of January 31, 2020, the Company completed an annual review of long-lived assets noting that the undiscounted future cash flows exceeded their carrying value and no impairment has been recorded. Subsequent to January 31, 2020, there was a significant deterioration in macroeconomic factors and a decline in the market value of the Company’s equity securities which indicated possible impairment of long-lived assets. Accordingly, the Company completed a quantitative analysis of the long-lived assets noting that the undiscounted future cash flows exceeded their carrying value and no related impairment has been recorded.
6. Leases
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) which was modified by subsequently issued ASUs 2018-01, 2018-10, 2018-11 and 2018-20 (collectively, the “New Lease Standard”). The New Lease Standard requires organizations that lease assets ("lessees") to recognize the assets and liabilities of the rights and obligations created by leases with terms of more than 12 months. The recognition, measurement and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee remains dependent on its classification as a finance or operating lease. The New Lease Standard also requires additional disclosure of the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases, including qualitative and quantitative requirements. The New Lease Standard was effective for financial statements issued for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years.
In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements (“ASU 2018-11”). ASU 2018-11 provided additional relief in the comparative reporting requirements for initial adoption of the New Lease Standard. Prior to ASU 2018-11, a modified retrospective transition was required for financing or operating leases existing at or entered after the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. ASU 2018-11 provided an additional transition method allowing entities to initially apply the New Lease Standard at the adoption date and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption without adjustment to the financial statements for periods prior to adoption.
The Company adopted the New Lease Standard effective February 1, 2019. We elected to apply the current period transition approach as introduced by ASU 2018-11 and we elected to apply the following practical expedients and accounting policy decisions.
We elected a package of transition expedients, which must be elected together, that allowed us to forgo reassessing certain conclusions reached under ASC 840. All expedients in this package were applied together for all leases that commenced before the effective date, February 1, 2019, of the adoption of the New Lease Standard. As a result, in transitioning to the New Lease Standard, for existing leases as of February 1, 2019, we continued to use judgments made under ASC 840 related to embedded leases, lease classification and accounting for initial direct costs. In addition, we have chosen, as an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset, not to separate non-lease components from the associated lease for all our leased asset classes, excluding for Real Estate related leases. As a result, for classes of Automobiles, Office Equipment and Manufacturing Equipment, we account for each separate lease component and the non-lease components associated with that lease as a single lease component.
The Company has certain non-cancelable operating lease agreements for office, production and warehouse space in Texas, Hungary, Singapore, Malaysia, Colombia, United Kingdom and Canada.
Adoption of the New Lease Standard during first quarter of fiscal 2020 did have a material impact on our consolidated balance sheet as we recorded right-of-use assets and the corresponding lease liabilities related to our operating leases of approximately $3.0 million, each. The Company determined to treat lease costs with an original maturity of less than one year as short-term lease costs and did not record a right-of-use asset or related lease liability for these leases. The new standard did not have a material impact on our consolidated statements of operations or our statements of cash flows.
Lease expense for the three months ended April 30, 2020 was approximately $293,000 and was recorded as a component of operating loss. Included in these costs was short-term lease expense of approximately $10,000 for the three months ended April 30, 2020.

Due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decline in oil prices during the three months ended April 30, 2020 and a decline in the market value of the Company’s equity securities, the Company performed a quantitative review of the Seamap reporting unit and concluded that goodwill had been impaired. As a result, the Company recorded an impairment expense of approximately $2.5 million related to goodwill in the Seamap reporting unit during the quarter ended April 30, 2020.
The impairment of goodwill indicated a possible impairment of other intangible assets. Accordingly, the Company completed a quantitative analysis of the other intangible assets noting that the undiscounted future cash flows exceeded their carrying value and no related impairment has been recorded.
On January 31, 2020, the Company completed an annual review of goodwill and other intangible assets. Based on a review of qualitative factors at that time, it was determined it was more likely than not that the fair value of our Seamap reporting unit was greater than its carrying value. Based on a review of qualitative and quantitative factors at that time, it was determined it was more likely than not that the fair value of our Klein reporting unit was not greater than its carrying value. Accordingly, we recorded an impairment of approximately $760,000 related to indefinite lived intangible assets in the Klein reporting unit as of January 31, 2020.
Aggregate amortization expense was $460,000 and $454,000 for the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. As of April 30, 2020, future estimated amortization expense related to amortizable intangible assets was estimated to be (in thousands):

8. Income Taxes
For the three months ended April 30, 2020, the provision for income taxes was approximately $521,000 on a pre-tax net loss of $6.1 million. For the three months ended April 30, 2019, the provision for income taxes was approximately $55,000 on a pre-tax net loss of $2.4 million. The variance between our actual provision and the expected provision based on the U.S. statutory rate is due primarily to recording valuation allowances against the increase in our deferred tax assets in the respective periods, plus the effect of foreign withholding taxes.
The Company files U.S. federal and state income tax returns as well as separate returns for its foreign subsidiaries within their local jurisdictions. The Company's U.S. federal and state income tax returns are subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service and state tax authorities for fiscal years ended January 31, 2017 through 2020. In addition, the Company's tax returns filed in foreign jurisdictions are generally subject to examination for the fiscal years ended January 31, 2015 through 2020.
The Company has determined that the undistributed earnings of foreign subsidiaries are not deemed to be indefinitely reinvested outside of the United States as of April 30, 2020. Furthermore, the Company has concluded that any deferred taxes with respect to the undistributed foreign earnings would be immaterial. Therefore, the Company has not recorded a deferred tax liability associated with the undistributed foreign earnings as of April 30, 2020.

For the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company did not recognize any tax expense or benefit related to uncertain tax positions.
9. Earnings per Share
Net income per basic common share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding unvested restricted stock. Net income per diluted common share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method. Potential common shares result from the assumed exercise of outstanding common stock options having a dilutive effect and from the assumed vesting of unvested shares of restricted stock.
The following table presents the calculation of basic and diluted weighted average common shares used in the earnings per share calculation:

For the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019, potentially dilutive common shares, underlying stock options and unvested restricted stock were anti-dilutive and were therefore not considered in calculating diluted loss per share for those periods.
10. Related Party Transaction
On October 7, 2016 the Company entered into an equity distribution agreement (the “Equity Distribution Agreement”) with Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. (the “Agent”), pursuant to which the Company may sell up to 500,000 shares of 9.00% Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock (the "Preferred Stock"), par value $1.00 per share through an at-the-market ("ATM") offering program administered by the Agent. The Co-Chief Executive Officer and Co-President of the Agent is the Non-Executive Chairman of the Company’s board of directors (the "Board"). Under the Equity Distribution Agreement, the Agent will be entitled to compensation of up to 2.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of Preferred Stock under the ATM offering program. As of January 31, 2020, we have issued 994,046 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock. The 994,046 shares represent 100% of the Series A Preferred Stock available for sale through our ATM offering program and therefore no shares were available for issuance in the three months ended April 30, 2020. For the three months ended April 30, 2019, the Company issued 16,656, of Preferred Stock under the ATM offering program. Gross proceeds from these sales for the three months ended April 30, 2019 were approximately $417,000, and the Agent received compensation of approximately $8,000. The Non-Executive Chairman of the Board received no portion of this compensation.
11. Equity and Stock-Based Compensation
During the three months ended April 30, 2020, the Board declared quarterly dividends of $0.5625 per share for our Preferred Stock. The Board also approved the grant of 250,000 non-qualified stock options and 15,000 shares of restricted stock during the first quarter of fiscal 2021. The non-qualified stock options had an average option price of $1.25 while the restricted stock was granted at an average price of $1.25 per share. Total compensation expense recognized for stock-based awards granted under the Company’s equity incentive plan during the three months ended April 30, 2020 was approximately $230,000 and during the three months ended April 30, 2019 was approximately $172,000.
Refer to Note 10 for additional details related to the issuance of Preferred Stock under the Company's ATM offering program.
12. Sale of Subsidiaries
In February 2019, the Company completed the sale of its wholly owned Australian subsidiary, Seismic Asia Pacific Pty Ltd. for total contractual proceeds of approximately $660,000 U.S. dollars of which the Company received approximately $240,000 in cash at closing and an unsecured, non-interest bearing two year note receivable in the amount of $420,000. The agreement also included a working capital adjustment of approximately $114,000 payable to the Company. We received payment of the working capital adjustment in August of 2019. The note receivable was recorded as other non-current assets as of April 30, 2020 and January 31, 2020.
In August 2018, the Company completed the sale of its wholly owned Russian subsidiary, MSE, to an unrelated third party (the “Buyer”) for total contractual proceeds of approximately $1.2 million U.S. dollars. Our agreement with the Buyer stipulated a series of eight (8) payments totaling the contractual proceeds, plus interest accruing at a rate of 9% per annum, with the final payment to be received on or before August 31, 2019. Through April 30, 2020, the Buyer has made payments totaling approximately $705,000. Although we did not receive all the stipulated

12


payments before August 31, 2019, we are working with the Buyer and expect the remaining balance of contractual proceeds due, together with applicable interest, to be paid in full. The amounts due from Buyer were recorded in accounts receivable at April 30, 2020 and January 31, 2020.

Sales from the Marine Technology Products segment to the Equipment Leasing segment are eliminated in consolidated revenues. Consolidated income before taxes reflects the elimination of profit from intercompany sales and depreciation expense on the difference between the sales price and the cost to manufacture the equipment. Fixed assets are reduced by the difference between the sales price and the cost to manufacture the equipment, less the accumulated depreciation related to the difference.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Overview
We operate in two segments, Marine Technology Products and Equipment Leasing. Revenue from the Marine Technology Products segment includes sales of Seamap equipment, sales of Klein equipment and through the first quarter of fiscal 2020, sales of oceanographic and hydrographic equipment by SAP. This segment operates from locations near Bristol, United Kingdom, Salem, New Hampshire, Jahor, Malaysia and in Singapore. During February 2019, the Company completed the sale of its Australian operations in Brisbane, Australia. See Note 12 - “Sale of Subsidiaries” of our consolidated financial statements for additional details.
The operations of our Equipment Leasing segment include all leasing activity, sales of lease pool equipment and certain other equipment sales and services related to those operations. This business is conducted from our locations in Huntsville, Texas; Calgary, Canada; Bogota, Colombia; and Budapest, Hungary. This includes the operations of our subsidiaries MCL, MEL and our branch in Colombia.
Management believes that the performance of our Marine Technology Products segment is indicated by revenues from equipment sales and by gross profit from those sales. Management further believes that the performance of our Equipment Leasing segment is indicated by revenues from equipment leasing and by the level of our investment in lease pool equipment. Management monitors EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, both as defined and reconciled to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), in the following table, as key indicators of our overall performance and liquidity.
The following table presents certain operating information by operating segment.

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, impairment of intangible assets, 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. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with GAAP. Rather, 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 and finance working capital requirements. 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.
Within our Marine Technology Products segment, we design, manufacture and sell a variety of products used primarily in oceanographic, hydrographic, defense, seismic and maritime security industries. Seamap’s primary products include (i) the GunLink and Digishot seismic source acquisition and control systems, which provide marine operators more precise control of exploration tools; (ii) the BuoyLink RGPS tracking system used to provide precise positioning of seismic sources and streamers (marine recording channels that are towed behind a vessel) and (iii) SeaLink marine sensors and solid streamer systems (collectively the “SeaLink” product line or “towed streamer products”). These towed streamer products are primarily designed for three-dimensional, high-resolution marine surveys in hydrographic industry applications. Klein designs, manufactures and sells side scan sonar and water-side security systems to commercial, governmental and military customers throughout the world. SAP sells equipment, consumable supplies, systems integration, engineering hardware and software maintenance support services to the seismic, hydrographic, oceanographic, environmental and defense industries throughout Southeast Asia and Australia. We completed the sale of SAP in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.
In our Equipment Leasing segment, we lease seismic data acquisition equipment primarily to seismic data acquisition companies conducting land, transition zone and marine seismic surveys worldwide. We provide short-term leasing of seismic equipment to meet a customer’s requirements. All active leases at April 30, 2020 were for a term of less than one year. Seismic equipment held for lease is carried at cost, net of accumulated depreciation. From time to time, we sell lease pool equipment. These sales are transacted when we have equipment for

16


which we do not have near term needs in our leasing business or which is otherwise considered excess. Additionally, when equipment that has been leased to a customer is lost or destroyed, the customer is charged for such equipment at amounts specified in the underlying lease agreement.
Our results of operations can experience fluctuations in activity levels due to a number of factors outside of our control. These factors include budgetary or financial concerns, difficulties in obtaining licenses or permits, security problems, labor or political issues, inclement weather, and global pandemics. See Item 1A- “Risk Factors.”
Business Outlook

The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant uncertainty in the global economy, which could have an adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial position, results of operations and liquidity. The time frame for which disruptions related to the pandemic will continue is uncertain as is the magnitude of any adverse impacts. We were required to temporarily shut-down our facilities in Malaysia and Singapore on March 17 and April 7, respectively. The Malaysia facility was reopened on April 21, 2020 with approximately 50% of its normal staff and resumed operations with 100% of its employees on May 4, 2020. In Singapore, we were able to continue limited shipping and receiving operations during the shutdown and were able to resume manufacturing operations on June 1, 2020. While we are not yet at full capacity in Singapore, we expect to build to that over the month of June.

Our other facilities have been allowed to operate, although at reduced efficiencies as certain employees have worked remotely. We expect these disruptions will have a negative effect on our business; however, the magnitude of such effect is uncertain. Management believes that the negative impact will be temporary, but there can be no assurance of that.

Additionally, oil prices declined sharply during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 in response to the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the announcement of Saudi Arabia’s abandonment of output restraints. Oil prices have partially recovered recently, but this decline could have an adverse effect on our customers in the energy industry, which could in turn cause them to cancel or delay projects and orders with us and could impair their ability to make payments to us. However, to date we have had no significant orders cancelled and continue to respond to inquiries from customers in all market segments, including energy related. Many of our marine customers have recently indicated increases in backlog, which we believe is a positive indication of a recovery later in fiscal 2021 and beyond. As of April 30, 2020, our backlog of firm orders for our Marine Technology Products segment was approximately $10.2 million, as compared to approximately $11.0 million as of April 30, 2019 and $8.9 million as of January 31, 2020. We estimate that approximately 80% of the backlog at April 30, 2020, relates to orders from non-energy related customers. We expect all of these orders to be completed within fiscal 2021. The level of backlog at a particular point in time may not necessarily be indicative of results in subsequent periods as the size and delivery period of individual orders can vary significantly.
Going forward we intend to address three primary markets in our Marine Technology Products segment -
Marine Survey
Marine Exploration
Maritime Defense
Specific applications within those markets include sea-floor survey, search and recovery, mineral and geophysical exploration, mine counter measures and anti-submarine warfare. We have existing technology and products that meet needs across all these markets such as -
Side-scan sonar
Bathymetry systems
Acoustic arrays, such as SeaLink
Marine seismic equipment, such as GunLink and BuoyLink
We see a number of opportunities to add to our technology and to apply existing technology and products to new applications.

In connection with these proposed changes and in recognition of our focus on our marine technology products business, as well as recent changes in the global energy markets, we think that it is now appropriate to further de-emphasize our land seismic leasing business. Accordingly, we have decided to make no new investments in land seismic lease pool equipment and will attempt to maximize the value of our existing operations and equipment through leasing or sales transactions. We are also taking steps to adjust the cost structure of this portion of our business to reflect the ongoing operations.
In fiscal 2020, we introduced new sonar technology that we refer to as “MA-X”. We believe this to be revolutionary sonar technology that will significantly expand the opportunities available to us. We have received and delivered orders related to this new technology and continue to respond to orders and inquiries related to this technology, including some for military related applications. While the MA-X technology has not had a material impact on our results of operations to date, we believe this technology will result in significant new opportunities for us. Also, in fiscal 2020, we received an order from a manufacturer of unmanned underwater vehicles (“UUV’s”) for a MA-X related product to be installed on one of their UUV’s. This request relates to a potentially significant program for the U.S. Navy. While this specific order may not have a material impact on our results of operations, we believe this, and similar opportunities could have a material impact on our operations. We also are pursuing a number of initiatives to further expand our product offerings. These initiatives include new

17


internally developed technology, introduction of new products based on our existing technology, technology obtained through partnering arrangements with others and a combination of all of these. There can be no assurance that any of these initiatives will ultimately have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations. Certain of the business opportunities that we are pursuing are with military or other governmental organizations. The sales cycle for these projects can be quite long and can be impacted by a number of factors, including the level of competition and budget limitations. Therefore, the timing of contract awards is often difficult to predict. However, once awarded, programs of this type can extend for a number of years. In addition, we are pursuing a number of opportunities related to activity within the marine seismic industry. Certain projects, for which we anticipate providing equipment, including source controllers, have not progressed as rapidly as we had anticipated and had been indicated by our customers. Based on information from our customers, we believe these projects remain viable and will proceed. However, the timing of orders and delivery of products remain uncertain.

In response to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the, current economic environment we have taken steps to reduce expenses including the layoff or furloughing of certain employees and contractors and the deferral of other expenditures. Should the effects of the pandemic and low commodity prices continue, we may take further steps to reduce costs. We believe the majority of our costs are variable in nature, such as raw materials and labor related costs. Accordingly, we believe we can reduce such costs commensurate with any declines in our business.

Our revenues and results of operations have not been materially impacted by inflation or changing prices in the past three fiscal years, except as described above.
Results of Operations
Revenues for the three months ended April 30, 2020 were approximately $7.4 million compared to approximately $9.9 million for the three months ended April 30, 2019. The decrease in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 is due to lower Marine Technology Product and Equipment Leasing revenue, partially offset by a moderate increase in lease pool and other equipment sales between the periods. The lower Marine Technology Product revenue is primarily due to delays in deliveries of completed orders, mainly due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the lower Equipment Leasing revenue is due to reduced leasing activity. For the three months ended April 30, 2020, we generated an operating loss of approximately $6.2 million, compared to an operating loss of approximately $2.5 million for the three months ended April 30, 2019. The increase in operating loss during the three-month period ended April 30, 2020 is attributable to a goodwill impairment expense in our Seamap reporting unit, lower revenue and contribution from both segments and an increase in research and development costs in our Marine Technology Product segment. A more detailed explanation of these variations follows.

A significant portion of Seamap’s sales consists of large discrete orders, the timing of which is dictated by our customers. This timing generally relates to the availability of a vessel in port so that our products can be installed. Accordingly, there can be significant variation in sales from one period to another, which does not necessarily indicate a fundamental change in demand for these products. We believe the decline in Seamap revenues is due in large part to temporary delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, including the temporary shutdown of our production facilities. The gross profit and gross profit margins generated by sales of Seamap products were approximately $319,000 and 14% in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and approximately $2.0 million and 46% in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The decrease in gross profit margins between the periods is due primarily to lower manufacturing activity which resulted in lower overhead absorption during the period.
Revenue from the sale of Klein products was approximately $1.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 versus approximately $1.6 million in the prior year period. We believe the decline in revenue is partially due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gross profit was approximately $165,000 and $460,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and 2020, respectively. The decline in gross profit margin in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was due mainly to the mix of products sold between the comparative periods.
We completed the sale of SAP during the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Therefore, we reported no revenues from SAP for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $101,000 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Revenue from equipment leasing was down approximately 24% year over year, but sales of lease pool and other equipment totaled approximately $1.6 million in the three months ended April 30, 2020 compared to approximately $557,000 in the three months ended April 30, 2019.
Direct costs related to equipment leasing were reduced to approximately $844,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 from approximately $1.0 million reported in the same period of fiscal 2020. A significant portion of direct costs in our Equipment Leasing segment are generally fixed and therefore do not fluctuate with the level of leasing revenue. However, these costs also include sub-lease payments to certain OEMs under revenue sharing arrangements, which do fluctuate with the level of leasing revenue. For the first quarter of fiscal 2021, lease pool depreciation decreased approximately $520,000 or 36% from the same period in the prior fiscal year. The decrease reflects recent sales of lease pool equipment, and the effect of certain equipment becoming fully depreciated.

Operating Expenses
General and administrative expenses for the three months ended April 30, 2020 decreased to approximately $4.7 million from approximately $5.2 million for the three months ended April 30, 2019. The decrease in general and administrative expenses is primarily due to various strategic restructuring activities implemented in fiscal 2020.
In recognition of the need to control costs in the current environment, effective May 1, 2020, Robert P. Capps, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Executive Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer, and Guy Malden, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Executive Vice President of Marine Systems, both agreed to a temporary 20% reduction in base salary. In addition, our Board has agreed to a temporary 25% reduction in cash compensation.
Depreciation and amortization expense include depreciation of equipment, furniture and fixtures and the amortization of intangible assets. These costs were approximately $774,000 in the three-month period ended April 30, 2020, as compared to approximately $650,000 in the three-month period ended April 30, 2019. The higher depreciation and amortization expense in the three-month period of fiscal 2021 is due primarily to asset additions associated with the start-up of our Malaysian manufacturing facility and the amortization of intangible assets related to a recent software upgrade.
Due to deterioration in macroeconomic factors and a decline in the market value of our equity securities subsequent to January 31, 2020, we concluded that goodwill was impaired and recorded an impairment charge of approximately $2.5 million in the quarter ended April 30, 2020. The goodwill impairment indicated that there was potential impairment of our other intangible and long-lived assets. Accordingly, we performed an analysis of the undiscounted future cash flow from those assets and concluded that there was no impairment.
Provision for Income Taxes
Our tax provision for the three months ended April 30, 2020 was approximately $521,000. For the three months ended April 30, 2019, we reported tax expense of approximately $55,000. We recorded tax provisions in the three-month periods ended April 30, 2020 and 2019, despite generating a loss before income taxes in each of these periods, due mainly to the effect of foreign withholding taxes and recording valuation allowances against increases in our deferred tax assets.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As discussed above, the COVID-19 pandemic and the decline in oil prices has created significant uncertainty in the global economy, which could have an adverse effect on our business, financial position, results of operations and liquidity. The period for which disruptions related to the pandemic will continue is uncertain, as is the magnitude of any adverse impacts. We believe that any negative impacts will be temporary, but there can be no assurance of that.
The Company has a history of losses, has had negative cash from operating activities in each of the last two years and its cash balance as of April 30, 2020 is significantly lower than at April 30, 2019. For the past three years, the Company has generated significant cash from the sale of preferred stock pursuant to an “at the market” program. That program has been completed and no further preferred shares can be sold pursuant to it. Furthermore, the amount of authorized preferred stock available for other financing transactions is limited. While the Company has plans to increase the authorized shares, such increase requires shareholder approval and there can be no assurance such approval will be obtained.
Due to the above factors, there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to meet its obligations as they arise over the next twelve months. However, management believes there are compensating factors and actions that can be taken to address these uncertainties, including the following:
The Company has no funded debt or other outstanding obligations, outside of normal trade obligations.
The Company has no obligations or agreements containing “maintenance type” financial covenants.
The Company has working capital of approximately $20.4 million as of April 30, 2020, including cash of approximately $4.7 million, which is an increase from approximately $3.2 million of cash at January 31, 2020.
During the three months ended April 30, 2020, the Company generated positive cash from operating activities of approximately $929,000.
Should revenues be less than projected, the Company believes it is able, and has plans, to reduce costs proportionately in order to maintain positive cash flow.
The majority of the Company’s costs are variable in nature, such as raw materials and personnel related costs. The Company has terminated or furloughed certain employees and contractors.
Despite the temporary suspension of operations in Malaysia and Singapore, operations have continued uninterrupted at other locations. Certain of these operations have been deemed “essential businesses” by authorities. However, there can be no assurance that further suspensions will not occur in the future.
The Company’s Marine Technology Products segment has a backlog of orders of approximately $10.2 million as of April 30, 2020 that is primarily related to customers not engaged in the energy industry. Production for certain of these orders was in process and included in inventory as of January 31, 2020, thereby reducing the liquidity needed to complete the orders.
There are various government sponsored grant or loan programs, both in the United States and in certain foreign locations which are available to the Company and for which the Company has applied. Subsequent to April 30, 2020, the Company received approximately $1.6 million in U.S. government sponsored loans pursuant to the Small Business Association’s Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) and has received lesser amounts of government grants in several foreign jurisdictions. The PPP funds were received in the form of two-year note. Management believes a significant portion of the $1.6 million loan from the U.S. government will be converted to a grant under the terms of the PPP.
Despite the present difficulties in world energy markets, management believes there are opportunities sell assets such as lease pool equipment and the Company has completed such transactions recently.
The Company has declared and paid the quarterly dividend on its Series A Preferred Stock for the quarter ending April 30, 2020, but such quarterly dividends could be suspended in the future.
Based on publicized transactions and preliminary discussions with potential funding sources, management believes that other sources of debt and equity financing are available should the need arise.
Our principal sources of liquidity and capital over the past three fiscal years have been proceeds from issuances of preferred stock and from the sale of lease pool equipment.
The Series A Preferred Stock has been issued in the June 2016 offering, as consideration to MHI and in the ATM program. The Series A Preferred Stock (i) allows for redemption on at our option (even in the event of a change of control), (ii) does not grant holders with voting control of our Board of Directors, and (iii) provides holders with a conversion option (into common stock) only upon a change of control which, upon conversion, would be subject to a limit on the maximum number of shares of common stock to be issued. Through January 31, 2020, we have issued 994,046 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock. The 994,046 shares represent 100% of the Series A Preferred Stock available for sale through our ATM program. In addition, we have limited authorized capital of preferred stock remaining available for issuance. As of April 30, 2020, under our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, we had 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock authorized.

As of April 30, 2020, we had working capital of approximately $20.4 million, including cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash of approximately $4.7 million, as compared to working capital of approximately $27.0 million, including cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash of approximately $8.1 million, at April 30, 2019. Our working capital decreased during the first three months of fiscal 2021 as compared to same period in fiscal 2020 due primarily to a decrease in cash and cash equivalents and an increase in accounts payable. During the first three months of fiscal year 2021, we made payments of approximately $110,000 for lease pool equipment purchased during fiscal year 2020.
Cash Flows from Operating Activities. Net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $929,000 in the first three months of fiscal 2021 as compared to approximately $1.9 million of net cash used in operating activities in the first three months in fiscal 2020. The increase between the two periods resulted primarily from the change in earnings between the periods and changes in working capital items such as accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities.
Cash Flows from Investing Activities. Cash provided from investing activities increased to $1.2 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $603,000 during the same period in the prior year.
In the first three months of fiscal 2021 proceeds from the sale of lease pool equipment totaled approximately $1.4 million compared to approximately $730,000 in the first three months of fiscal 2020. From time to time, we may seek to sell certain equipment from our lease pool. In particular, we may sell lease pool equipment in response to specific demand from customers if the selling price exceeds the estimated present value of projected future leasing revenue from that equipment. Accordingly, cash flow from the sale of lease pool equipment is unpredictable. We expect that proceeds from any additional sales of lease pool equipment will be deployed in other areas of our business or used for general corporate purposes.
Cash Flows from Financing Activities. Net cash used in financing activities in the first three months of fiscal 2021 consisted of approximately $559,000 of preferred stock dividend payments, as compared to approximately $409,000 of proceeds from sales of preferred stock, offset by approximately $471,000 of preferred stock dividend payments in the prior year period. As of April 30, 2020, there were 994,046 shares of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding, this amount represents 100% of the Series A Preferred Stock available for sale through our ATM program. Based on the Preferred Stock outstanding at April 30, 2020, annual dividend requirements are approximately $2.2 million.
We currently do not have a line of credit or other bank credit facilities. From time to time, we may engage in discussions with one or more commercial banks regarding establishing a credit facility or facilities. However, there can be no assurance that we will be able to establish any such facilities if and when needed and to the extent required, on acceptable terms or at all. We would intend to use such facilities for short-term working capital needs and to support letter of credit requirements. In connection with the temporary importation of our lease pool equipment into some countries, we are required to post import bonds with the customs authorities of that country. In addition, from time to time we are required to provide performance bonds related to the sale and delivery of new equipment. These bonds are normally provided by insurance companies, surety companies or local banks. In some cases, the party issuing the bond requires that we post collateral to secure our obligations under the bonds.
As of April 30, 2020, we had deposits in foreign banks consisting of both U.S. dollar and foreign currency deposits equal to approximately $3.8 million. We believe all $3.8 million of these deposits could be distributed to the United States without any adverse tax consequences.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
We are exposed to market risk, which is the potential loss arising from adverse changes in market prices and rates. We have not entered, and do not intend to enter, into derivative financial instruments for hedging or speculative purposes.
Foreign Currency Risk
We operate in a number of foreign locations, which gives rise to risk from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. To the extent possible, we attempt to denominate our transactions in foreign locations in U.S. dollars. For those cases in which transactions are not denominated in U.S. dollars, we are exposed to risk from changes in exchange rates to the extent that non-U.S. dollar revenues exceed non-U.S. dollar expenses related to those transactions. Our non-U.S. dollar transactions are denominated primarily in British pounds, Canadian dollars, Singapore dollars and European Union euros. As a result of these transactions, we generally hold cash balances that are denominated in these foreign currencies. At April 30, 2020, our consolidated cash and cash equivalents included foreign currency denominated amounts equivalent to approximately $1.1 million in U.S. dollars. A 10% increase in the U.S. dollar as compared to each of these currencies would result in a loss of approximately $110,000 in the U.S. dollar value of these deposits, while a 10% decrease would result in an equal amount of gain. We do not currently hold or issue foreign exchange contracts or other derivative instruments to hedge these exposures.

Some of our foreign operations are conducted through wholly owned foreign subsidiaries that have functional currencies other than the U.S. dollar. We currently have a subsidiary whose functional currency is the Canadian dollar. Assets and liabilities from this subsidiary are translated into U.S. dollars at the exchange rate in effect at each balance sheet date. The resulting translation gains or losses are reflected as Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in the Shareholders’ Equity section of our Consolidated Balance Sheets. Approximately 4% of our net assets as of April 30, 2020 were impacted by changes in foreign currencies in relation to the U.S. dollar.

Interest Rate Risk
As of April 30, 2020, we have no interest-bearing bank debt on our balance sheet.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
As required by Rule 13a-15(b) of the Exchange Act, we have evaluated, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officers and principal financial officer, the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this Form 10-Q. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officers and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure and is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. Our principal executive officers and
principal financial officer have concluded that our current disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of April 30, 2020, due to a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting that was disclosed on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020.

Remediation
As previously described in Part II, Item 9A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 30, 2020, we commenced implementing a remediation plan to address the material weakness in our internal controls over financial reporting. The weakness will remain unresolved, until the applicable controls operate for a sufficient period of time and management has concluded, through testing, that these controls are operating effectively. We anticipate that the remediation of this material weakness will be satisfied prior to the end of fiscal 2021.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There was no change in our system of internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the quarter ended April 30, 2020 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 1A. Risk Factors
The risk factors included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020 have not materially changed.
