Reports Fiscal Year 2022 Third Quarter Results

August 9, 2022 geospace

Adjacent Market Business Segment Marks Quarterly Revenue Record

Geospace Technologies (NASDAQ: GEOS) today announced results for the third quarter and nine-month period ended June 30, 2022.  For the three-months ended June 30, 2022, Geospace Technologies (the “Company”) reported revenue of $20.7 million versus $23.1 million for the comparable year-ago quarter.  Net loss for the three-months ended June 30, 2022 was $6.6 million, or $(0.51) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.8 million, or ($0.06) per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

For the nine-months ended June 30, 2022, the Company recorded revenue of $63.4 million compared to revenue of $75.4 million during the prior year period. Net loss for the nine-months ended June 30, 2022 was $14.8 million, or $(1.14) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $9.0 million, or $(0.67) per diluted share for the prior year period.

Walter R. (“Rick”) Wheeler, President and CEO of the Company said, “Although the three- and nine-month periods ended June 30, 2022, experienced decreases in Oil and Gas Markets segment revenue from prior periods, we are nonetheless pleased that demand for our OBX ocean bottom nodes continued to climb. This led to the highest quarterly figure for rental revenue this fiscal year. Further evidence of this growing OBX demand came in our two recent news announcements of separate OBX rental contracts, valued at $4 million and $12 million. Moreover, the base value of signed OBX rental contracts so far in fiscal year 2022 now exceeds $24 million, compared to $8.2 million in fiscal year 2021. Our discussions and ongoing quoting activities with valued customers give us an increased level of confidence that demand for the OBX will remain strong.”

Wheeler continued, “Another noteworthy highlight of the quarter is the strong performance of our Adjacent Markets segment. Quarterly revenue from this collection of products reached an all-time high in the third quarter, setting a new segment record. Revenue growth in this segment has benefited from growing demand for our U.S.-manufactured water meter cables and connectors, driven by increased domestic infrastructure spending on smart city projects. Our presence in this market is poised to penetrate even deeper with the roll out to customers of our Aquana smart water valves and cloud control software, expected to occur before the end of the fiscal year. Additional factors contributing to solid Adjacent Markets segment revenue include our Exile electronic pre-press solutions. These computer-to-screen printers bring increased automation and time savings to the graphic arts screen print industry, helping these customers reduce labor and increase efficiencies. Our specialty contract manufacturing business is also seeing positive results, where more customers want increased domestic control of their manufacturing.”

“The past two years have been plagued by COVID-19, supply-chain issues, and geopolitical turmoil. While many derivative challenges of these issues remain, we are encouraged by the improved market conditions in both our Oil and Gas and Adjacent Market segments. Continued improvement in each of these divisions should lead to better performance in future quarters as well as overall improved liquidity. In closing, I would like to thank all our hard-working employees, valued clients, and trusted shareholders for their continued support.”

Adjacent Markets Segment

Revenue for the three-month period ending June 30, 2022 was $10.9 million, an increase of 16.7% when compared to the same three-month period of the prior fiscal year.  Revenue for the nine-month period ended June 30, 2022 was $28.3 million an increase of 18.6% from the same prior year period.  The increase in revenue for both periods is due to higher demand for the Company’s water meter connector and cable products, industrial sensor products, contract manufacturing, thermal imaging equipment and consumable film products. The Adjacent Markets segment contributed 52.9% of the Company’s total revenue for the three-month period ending June 30, 2022.

Oil and Gas Markets Segment

The Oil and Gas Markets segment produced revenue of $9.5 million for the three-months ended June 30, 2022. This compares with revenue of $12.6 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year, a decrease of 24.8%. For the nine-month period ended June 30, 2022, the segment contributed revenue of $34.3 million, a decrease 17.4% from the comparable prior period.  The decrease in revenue for both periods is due to lower wireless product sales partially offset by higher utilization of the Company’s OBX rental fleet. The Company’s OBX rental fleet has been experiencing higher levels of quoting activities as well as additional contracts. The Company expects higher levels of utilization of the OBX rental fleet throughout the rest of fiscal year 2022.

Emerging Markets Segment

For the three- and nine-month periods ended June 30, 2022, the Company’s Emerging Market’s segment generated revenue of $0.1 million and $0.6 million respectively.  For the similar periods from fiscal year 2021, the Emerging Market’s segment produced revenue of $1.1 million and $10 million, respectively. The decrease in revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was primarily due to lower service revenue.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

At June 30, 2022, Geospace had $9.1 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments.  Additionally, the Company has additional liquidity from its credit facility with $8.5 million in available borrowing. The Company also owns unencumbered property and real estate in both domestic and international locations. The Company used $6.6 million of cash during the nine-month period ended June 30, 2022. Notable sources of cash included (i) $7.8 million in net proceeds from the sale of short-term investments and (ii) $5.9 million from the sale of used rental equipment. Notable uses of cash included $13.3 million used in operating activities and  $4.1 million of investments for additions to the Company’s rental fleet.
