HOUSTON, Apr 1, 2002 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ —

Balance Sheet Restatement to Have No Impact on Earnings

Input/Output, Inc.
(NYSE: IO) today announced a non-cash balance sheet restatement associated with
the previously-reported sale/leaseback of its Stafford facilities completed in
August 2001. I/O will record the lease as a financing transaction rather than as
a sale/leaseback as previously reported in I/O’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
September 30, 2001. The restatement of the sale/leaseback transaction will have
no effect on I/O’s previously reported earnings for the third quarter of 2001
nor I/O’s results of operations over the life of the lease. The restatement will
result in I/O increasing both assets and liabilities by $17.0 million by
reporting its leased Stafford facilities as an asset classified as property,
plant and equipment and by reporting the discounted present value of its future
lease payments as a long-term obligation. Obligations relating to the
sale/leaseback transaction were disclosed in the third quarter report on Form
10Q, to which a copy of the lease was filed as an exhibit. The restatement also
has no impact on the future obligations under the lease, which were previously
disclosed. The Company will amend its quarterly report previously filed with the
SEC as soon as practicable.

“We are disappointed that this restatement has been required at such a late
point in time,” stated Timothy J. Probert, I/O’s Chief Executive Officer. “We
wish to stress that the restatement does not impact our cash position or
liquidity, nor does it change our results from operations or our future
obligations pursuant to the lease. The long-term fundamentals of our business
operations and business plan remain unchanged and positive.”
