OYO Geospace Reports Fiscal Year 2012 First Quarter Results

OYO Geospace (NASDAQ: OYOG) today announced net income of $8.7 million, or $1.35 per diluted share, on revenues of $43.3 million for its fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011. This compares with net income of $8.2 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, on revenues of $43.1 million in the comparable fiscal quarter last year.

“This is the highest level of net income reported during any first fiscal quarter in our company’s history. Our financial results were led by sales of our GSR wireless data acquisition systems. During the first quarter, we reported $17.9 million of revenues from sales and rentals of our wireless data acquisition system, compared to $17.7 million of revenues in the comparable quarter of the prior year. During the first quarter we shipped approximately 12,000 wireless channels, including 5,000 channels to Breckenridge Exploration Company, 3,200 channels to Viking Geophysical, and 3,000 channels to Tidelands Geophysical. While Breckenridge is a new customer to our company, Viking and Tidelands are both repeat customers for our wireless seismic data recording technology. We are very pleased that each of these customers has selected GSR as their wireless system of choice,” said Gary D. Owens, OYO Geospace’s Chairman, President and CEO.

“In addition to the strong revenue contribution from our GSR systems, our reservoir and industrial products also produced solid results during the first quarter by delivering revenues of $5.4 million and $2.9 million, respectively, compared to $3.5 million and $2.0 million in the comparable quarter last year. Due to a slowdown in land sensor and marine product shipments, our traditional seismic products produced $14.0 million in revenues during the first quarter compared to $16.4 million in the same quarter last year. We also saw a decline in the sales of our thermal solution products for the quarter.”

“Customer orders and scheduled deliveries for many of our seismic products, especially our wireless, marine, borehole and seabed reservoir products, have been and are expected to continue to be unpredictable or 'lumpy.' In this regard, subsequent to December 31, 2011, we received an order from Tidelands Geophysical for 14,200 additional single-channel GSR units which we delivered in January 2012 (our fiscal second quarter). This single order exceeds the level of all GSR shipments made during the first quarter. Including the order from Tidelands, at this time we expect to sell approximately 17,000 single-channel GSR units in our fiscal second quarter. These orders get us off to a good start for the second fiscal quarter and give us confidence in our efforts to continue expanding the GSR channel count throughout fiscal year 2012 and beyond.”
