THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Sept. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- MIND Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIND) ("MIND" or the "Company") today announced financial results for its fiscal 2023 second quarter ended July 31, 2022.
Revenues from Marine Technology Products sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 were $8.7 million, up 28% compared to $6.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022. The Company reported a net loss from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 of approximately $1.8 million compared to a net loss of $2.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022. Second quarter of fiscal 2023 net loss from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders was $0.20 per share compared to a net loss of $0.25 per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2022.
Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was a loss of $1.0 million compared to a loss of $1.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022. 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 July 31, 2022, was approximately $19.3 million compared to $13.4 million at April 30, 2022 and $11.7 million at July 31, 2021.
Rob Capps, MIND's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We were pleased with our second quarter results, with revenues coming in 28% higher than the second quarter of last year. These revenues were in line with our expectations and were comparable to our first quarter revenues of approximately $9.1 million. We feel that the higher level of revenue that we've generated in the first half of this year is an indication of our revenue potential on an ongoing basis. As we have discussed previously, we see robust interest, improved customer optimism, increased order flow and backlog. Based on these factors, we expect revenue in the second half of fiscal 2023 to exceed that of the first half.
"Despite slightly lower revenue in the second quarter as compared to the first, our operating loss improved to approximately $1.6 million as compared to approximately $2.5 million in the previous quarter. We saw improved gross margins, lower selling, general and administrative expenses and lower research and development expense.
"We remain encouraged by the underlying market conditions that surround our business. The sustained global energy prices we are seeing continue to drive increased activity among our marine seismic and exploration customers, as evidenced by recent and pending order activity. In addition to the firm backlog of orders, we are experiencing significant inquiries from our exploration and survey customers, particularly for source controller and high-resolution seismic streamer systems. Due to lead times for certain components, we are encouraging customers to place orders for fiscal 2024 deliveries as early as possible to ensure an appropriate place in our production queue. We believe some of our recent orders for sonar systems are directly associated with the current geopolitical climate, namely the security concerns in Europe. Although we're pleased with these orders and the inquiry levels that we've seen to date, we remain focused on continuing to leverage our growing product offerings to take advantage of opportunities in this improved market.
"As we look ahead to the second half of the year, we expect improved results when compared to the first half. While the timing of orders remains variable, which may result in a sequential drop in the third quarter, we expect to more than make up for it in the fourth quarter. Given the current state of our backlog and anticipated deliveries before year end, we expect to generate meaningfully higher revenue and positive income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter," 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.

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.

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.
