MIND TECHNOLOGY, INC. REPORTS FISCAL 2023 FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR-END RESULTS

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, April 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- MIND Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIND) ("MIND" or the "Company") today announced financial results for its fiscal 2023 fourth quarter and year ended January 31, 2023.

Revenues from Marine Technology Products sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 were $12.4 million compared to $4.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023 and $3.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022.

The Company reported income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 of approximately $445,000 compared to a loss from continuing operations of $3.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023 and a loss from continuing operations of $5.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022.  Fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 net loss from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders was $(0.03) per share compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2023 net loss from continuing operations of $(0.31) per share and a net loss from continuing operations of $(0.43) per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022.

Our fourth quarter income from continuing operations included some non-recurring income and expense items, including income related to employee retention credits and expenses related to inventory impairment and settlement charges, which netted to approximately $377,000 of reported income.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 was approximately $1.4 million compared to a loss of $2.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023 and a loss of $4.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022.  Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, which is a non-GAAP measure, is defined and reconciled to reported net income (loss) from continuing operations and cash used in 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.

The backlog of Marine Technology Products as of January 31, 2023, was approximately $20.7 million compared to $19.9 million at October 31, 2022 and $13.1 million at January 31, 2022.

Rob Capps, MIND's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased to report positive results for the fourth quarter as we returned to reporting net income with significantly improved revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and backlog on both a quarter and full-year basis. Our fourth quarter revenues from continuing operations increased 230% year-over-year and full-year fiscal 2023 revenue improved by 52% from fiscal 2022 levels. Our backlog of $20.7 million was up over 58% from the $13.1 million we reported at the end of 2022, demonstrating the strong demand growth we continue to see in our key markets.  Inquiry and bidding activity remain robust as we work to further expand our backlog. As we announced earlier this week, we have recently received new orders totaling more than $7.0 million and have other pending orders that we expect to receive soon.  Our backlog reflects the continued positive momentum that we are experiencing in various markets, and we believe that our differentiated marine technology products are uniquely positioned to benefit from favorable market trends. We expect revenues from continuing operations to improve in fiscal 2024 as compared to fiscal 2023.

"Although we maintained working capital of almost $14.0 million as of year-end, I think it is important to highlight the $3.75 million secured financing arrangement we entered into in February of this year. This arrangement provided working capital to assist in the execution of our backlog of business, but importantly, did not dilute our equity holders and contained minimal restrictions such as financial covenants or limitations on the use of proceeds. Due to this financing and cash flow from increased sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 and first quarter of fiscal 2024, we have seen an improvement in our liquidity position subsequent to year end.  Furthermore, we recently instituted cost control measures that we believe have the potential to save upwards of $1 million annually.

"As we move into fiscal 2024, we continue to believe the positive trend for order flow will continue. Additionally, we believe the underlying market fundamentals are positive and those have contributed to the increase in order activity. The current geopolitical situation emphasizes the need for maritime security and other defense applications. The constructive pricing environment in the energy market is positive for our customers in that space.  The trend towards renewable energy, such as wind farms, is a positive development for our marine survey customers. We plan to continue to execute our long-term strategic initiatives and position the Company to become a leading provider of innovative marine technology and products," concluded Capps.

Forward-looking Statements

Certain statements and information in this press release concerning results for the quarter and fiscal year ended January 31, 2023 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.

1.

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 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.
