Revenues of $121 million, diluted EPS of $0.01

HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — ION Geophysical Corporation (NYSE: IO) today reported second quarter 2014 net income of $1.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, on revenues of $121.5 million, compared to a net loss of $71.1 million, or $(0.45) per share, on revenues of $120.9 million in second quarter 2013.  The second quarter results include a non-recurring gain on the sale of the Company’s marine source product line, while second quarter 2013 results included a charge related to the ongoing WesternGeco legal matter.  Excluding these special items, the Company’s second quarter 2014 adjusted net income was a loss of $5.0 million, or $(0.03) per share, compared to adjusted net income of $0.4 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, in second quarter 2013.  

At June 30, 2014, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents were $157.8 million. During the second quarter, the Company paid down the outstanding balance of $50.0 million on its revolving credit facility, resulting in its full $175.0 million capacity being available at quarter-end.  Through the first half of 2014, the Company has generated net cash flows before financing activities of $50.8 million.  Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $33.7 million, a 6% increase over second quarter 2013, and $76.5 million for the first half of the year, a 33% increase over first half 2013.  Reconciliations of special items and Adjusted EBITDA can be found in the financial tables of this press release.

Brian Hanson, ION’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Consistent with several of our industry peers, ION’s second quarter results reflected a slowdown in exploration spending by major oil companies. Our revenues for the quarter were slightly above our second quarter 2013 revenues, as we benefited from the revenues contributed by OceanGeo from their project in Trinidad.  OceanGeo completed a five month acquisition project offshore Trinidad and was awarded another contract offshore West Africa.  This new award is for a duration of three months, beginning in late July, and is in an area where OceanGeo is pursuing several tenders for additional long-term work.  We are pleased that Calypso®, our next generation ocean bottom system, will be further deployed on OceanGeo’s next survey.  In mid-July, we acquired the remaining ownership interest in OceanGeo, making it a wholly-owned subsidiary of ION.

“Within our Solutions segment, revenues declined due to cautious exploration spending and underwriting of new projects by our clients.   We continue to maintain high standards for underwriting new projects and have delayed certain new venture programs from the first half of the year.  We now anticipate that our 2014 multi-client library investments will be in the range of $70 million to $90 million.

“Although revenues from our data processing business were up 3% in the first half of the year, we are seeing a slowdown in that area of our business.  Based on our backlog, we expect our data processing business to remain soft for the remainder of 2014, with revenues estimated to be between $25 million to $30 million per quarter.  We have taken measured actions to reduce our data processing cost structure during this period.

“On a positive note to the quarter, our Software business generated record revenues during the second quarter, due primarily to increases in Orca® and Gator® licensing revenues.

“We have made significant progress in our strategy of penetrating into the ocean bottom services market through our ownership in OceanGeo.  However, our outlook for the remainder of 2014 for all of ION remains cautious, and we will continue to maintain spending discipline across all businesses, maximizing cash generation, while still investing in key strategic technologies, and funding new programs only when they have been adequately underwritten by our customers.”

Within the Solutions segment, new venture revenues were $25.3 million, a 24% decrease from second quarter 2013; data library revenues were $13.6 million, a 37% decrease; and data processing revenues were $23.7 million, a 30% decrease.  All businesses within Solutions were down due to the continued softness of exploration spending.  

The decrease in Systems segment revenues was due to lower marine positioning system sales that were partially offset by increased repair and replacement revenues.

Software segment revenues were a second quarter record primarily due to higher Orca and Gator licensing revenues.

Ocean Bottom Services segment revenues were $25.9 million, related to work performed on OceanGeo’s five-month project in Trinidad. This project was completed at the end of May.  After the Trinidad project, OceanGeo began mobilizing for its next project offshore West Africa, which began in late July.

Consolidated gross margins were 31% compared to 30% in second quarter 2013, and operating margins were 3% compared to 6% in the prior year quarter.  The second quarter decrease in operating margins was driven primarily by the significant decline in data processing revenues within the Company’s Solutions business.  

The Company recognized $1.8 million of equity losses related to INOVA Geophysical compared to equity losses of $4.7 million in the Company’s second quarter 2013 results.  This improvement was due to a 20% increase in revenues primarily from increased rental revenues and used equipment sales.  See the attached financial tables for the summarized financial results of INOVA.

The Company’s interest expense was $4.9 million compared to $2.8 million in second quarter 2013.  The increase in interest expense was primarily related to the Company’s issuance of $175 million of 8.125% Senior Secured Second Priority Notes in May 2013.

Within the Solutions segment, new venture revenues were $58.1 million, a 29% decrease from first half 2013; data library revenues were $26.8 million, a 13% decrease; while data processing revenues were $67.0 million, a 3% increase.  The decrease in new venture and data library revenues was due to the continued softness in exploration spending, while the increase in data processing revenues was due to $15.0 million of revenues recognized in first quarter 2014 that related to work performed for a customer in 2013.  

The decrease in Systems segment revenues was primarily due to the lack of ocean bottom cable systems sales in 2014 compared to 2013.

Software segment revenues were records in both quarters and were primarily the result of increases in Orca and Gator licensing revenues.

Ocean Bottom Services segment revenues were $46.5 million, related to work performed on OceanGeo’s five-month project in Trinidad. 

Consolidated gross margins increased to 36% compared to 29% in first half 2013, and operating margins were 9% compared to 3% in the previous year.  The increase in both gross and operating margins was primarily due to the positive impact from the consolidation of OceanGeo’s results and reduced expenses within the Company’s Systems segment resulting from 2013 restructuring efforts.  

Prior to the consolidation of OceanGeo in February, the Company recorded $0.7 million of equity earnings compared to equity losses of $2.3 million in first half 2013.  The Company also recognized $4.2 million of equity losses related to INOVA Geophysical compared to equity losses of $2.9 million in the Company’s second quarter 2013 results.

The Company reported net income of $77.2 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $69.6 million, or $(0.44) per share, in first half 2013.  Both periods included special items primarily related to the WesternGeco legal matter.  Excluding these special items, in first half 2014, the Company reported net income of $1.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.9 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in first half 2013.

The term Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and other similar non-cash charges including, without limitation, equity in (earnings) losses of investments and the accrual (reduction) of loss contingency related to legal proceedings.   Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles and should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for net income (loss) or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The Company has included Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental disclosure because its management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information regarding our ability to service debt and to fund capital expenditures and provides investors a helpful measure for comparing its operating performance with the performance of other companies that have different financing and capital structures or tax rates.

Reconciliation of Special Items to Diluted Earnings (Loss) per Share

(Non-GAAP Measure)

(In thousands, except per share data)

(Unaudited)

The financial results are reported in accordance with GAAP. However, management believes that certain non-GAAP  performance measures may provide users of this financial information additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. One such non-GAAP financial measure is income from operations or net income (loss) excluding certain charges or amounts. This adjusted income (loss) amount is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered as a substitute for income from operations, net income (loss) or other income data prepared in accordance with GAAP. See the table below for supplemental financial data and the corresponding reconciliation to GAAP financials for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013:
