GEOSPACE TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

1.   Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The consolidated balance sheet of Geospace Technologies Corporation and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) at September 30, 2016 was derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements at that date.  The consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2017 and the consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive loss and cash flows for the three and six months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, were prepared by the Company without audit.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows were made.  The results of operations for the three and six months ended March 31, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for a full year or of future operations.

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America were omitted pursuant to the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The accompanying consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the Company’s fiscal year ended September 30, 2016.

Reclassifications

Certain amounts previously presented in the consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.  Such reclassifications had no effect on net loss, stockholders’ equity or cash flows.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amount of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes.  The Company considers many factors in selecting appropriate operational and financial accounting policies and controls, and in developing the estimates and assumptions that are used in the preparation of these financial statements.  The Company continually evaluates its estimates, including those related to bad debt reserves, inventory obsolescence reserves, self-insurance reserves, product warranty reserves, impairment of long-lived assets and deferred income tax assets.  The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities which are not readily available from other sources.  Actual results may differ from these estimates under different conditions or assumptions.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with an original or remaining maturity at the time of purchase of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Short-term Investments

The Company classifies its short-term investments consisting of corporate bonds, government bonds and other such similar investments as available-for-sale securities.  Available-for-sale securities are carried at fair market value with net unrealized holding gains and losses reported each period as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss in stockholders’ equity.  See note 2 for additional information.

Inventories

The Company records a write-down of its inventories when the cost basis of any manufactured product, including any estimated future costs to complete the manufacturing process, exceeds its net realizable value.  Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market value.  Cost is determined on the first-in, first-out method, except that certain of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries use an average cost method to value their inventories.

7


GEOSPACE TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

 

The Company periodically reviews the composition of its inventories to determine if market demand, product modifications, technology changes, excessive quantities on-hand and other factors hinder its ability to recover its investment in such inventories.  The Company’s assessment is based upon historical product demand, estimated future product demand and various other judgments and estimates.  Inventory obsolescence reserves are recorded when such assessments reveal that portions or components of the Company’s inventory investment will not be realized in its operating activities.

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

The Company’s long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever an event or change in circumstances indicates the carrying amount of an asset or group of assets may not be recoverable.  The impairment review, if necessary, includes a comparison of expected future cash flows (undiscounted and without interest charges) to be generated by an asset group with the associated carrying value of the related assets.  If the carrying value of the asset group exceeds the expected future cash flows, an impairment loss is recognized to the extent that the carrying value of the asset group exceeds its fair value, which is measured by the expected future cash flows.  At March 31, 2017, no events or changes in circumstances were determined indicating the carrying amount of any of its assets or groups of assets may not be recoverable.

Revenue Recognition – Products and Services

The Company primarily derives revenue from the sale of its manufactured products, including revenue derived from the sale of its manufactured rental equipment.  In addition, the Company generates revenue from the short-term rental under operating leases of its manufactured products.  The Company recognizes revenue from product sales, including the sale of used rental equipment, when all of the following have occurred: (i) title passes to the customer, (ii) the customer assumes the risks and rewards of ownership, (iii) the product sales price has been determined, (iv) collectability of the sales price is reasonably assured, and (v) product delivery occurs as directed by the customer.  Except for certain of the Company’s reservoir characterization products, the Company’s products are generally sold without any customer acceptance provisions, and the Company’s standard terms of sale do not allow customers to return products for credit.  The Company recognizes rental revenue as earned over the rental period.  Rentals of the Company’s equipment generally range from daily rentals to rental periods of up to six months or longer.  Revenue from engineering services is recognized as services are rendered over the duration of a project, or as billed on a per hour basis.  Field service revenue is recognized when services are rendered and is generally priced on a per day rate.

Research and Development Costs

The Company expenses research and development costs as incurred.  Research and development costs include salaries, employee benefit costs, department supplies, direct project costs and other related costs.

Product Warranties

Most of the Company’s products do not require installation assistance or sophisticated instructions.  The Company offers a standard product warranty obligating it to repair or replace equipment with manufacturing defects.  The Company maintains a reserve for future warranty costs based on historical experience or, in the absence of historical product experience, management’s estimates.  Reserves for future warranty costs are included within accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets.  Changes in the warranty reserve are reflected in the following table (in thousands):

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In November 2016 the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance which requires that a statement of cash flows explain the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents.  Therefore, amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents should be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows.  This guidance must be adopted by the Company no later than its first quarter of fiscal year 2019 and should

GEOSPACE TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

be applied on a retrospective transition basis.  The Company has historically not held restricted cash balances and, therefore, does not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.  However, upon adoption of this guidance, the Company will make any necessary changes to present restricted cash balances in accordance with the guidance.  

 

In October 2016 the FASB issued guidance which eliminates the exception of recognizing, at the time of transfer, current and deferred income taxes for intercompany profits on intra-entity asset transfers other than inventory.  This guidance must be adopted by the Company no later than its first quarter of fiscal year 2019 and applied on a modified retrospective transition basis.  Since early adoption is permitted, the Company is planning to adopt this guidance in its first quarter of its fiscal year ending September 30, 2018.  Under current guidance, the Company maintains a non-current prepaid income tax asset on its consolidated balance sheets representing income taxes paid in the U.S. on profits realized from the sale of rental equipment to its foreign subsidiaries.  As this rental equipment is depreciated, the prepaid tax is recognized as a current income tax expense in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations.  Upon adoption of the new guidance, the Company will be required to recognize a deferred tax asset related to the intercompany profits realized on the sale of assets to its subsidiaries; however, profits realized from the intercompany sale of inventories will continue to be accounted for as a prepaid income tax asset under the current guidance.  The resulting deferred tax asset will be recognized at the jurisdictional tax rate of the subsidiary purchasing the asset.  Any differences between the subsidiary’s jurisdictional tax rate and the seller’s tax rate with regard to the intercompany profit will be charged to seller’s current income tax expense at the time of the sale.  Since the current U.S. income tax rate is substantially higher than the current income tax rates applicable to each of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries, adoption of the new guidance could have a significant impact on the Company’s provision for income taxes in future periods if significant amounts of rental equipment are sold by the Company’s U.S. subsidiaries to its foreign subsidiaries.  

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued guidance surrounding credit losses for financial instruments that replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).  The new impairment model requires immediate recognition of estimated credit losses expected to occur for most financial assets and certain other financial instruments.  For available-for-sale debt securities with unrealized losses, credit losses will be recognized as allowances rather than reductions in the amortized cost of the securities.  The standard is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within those annual periods.  Early adoption for a fiscal year beginning after December 15, 2018 is permitted.  Entities will apply the standard’s provisions as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first effective reporting period.  The Company expects to adopt this standard during the first quarter of its fiscal year ending September 30, 2021 and is currently evaluating the impact of this new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.    

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued guidance to simplify key components of employee share-based payment accounting.  The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period.  The Company expects to adopt this guidance in the first quarter of its fiscal year ending September 30, 2018.  The new guidance simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including: (a) income tax consequences; (b) classification of awards as either equity or liabilities; and (c) classification of excess tax benefits from share-based payments on the statement of cash flows.  Under the current standard, the Company is required to track and record as a component of additional paid-in capital the tax impact of cumulative windfalls, net of any shortfalls, which result from excess tax benefits from share-based payments. As a result, the impact of net windfalls has not historically affected the Company’s provision for income taxes or its effective income tax rate.  Upon adoption of the new standard, the Company will record a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings for the basis of historical net windfalls residing in its additional paid in capital account. In addition, the Company will no longer track windfalls or shortfalls resulting from share-based payments since all future windfalls and shortfalls will be recorded as a component of the Company’s current provision for income taxes.  Depending on the magnitude of future windfalls or shortfalls, this change could significantly affect the Company’s provision for income taxes in a positive or negative direction.

In February 2016, the FASB issued guidance requiring a lessee to recognize assets and liabilities for leases with lease terms of more than 12 months.  Consistent with current GAAP, the recognition, measurement and presentation of expense and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee primarily will depend on its classification of the lease as a finance or operating lease.  However, unlike current GAAP, which requires only capital leases to be recognized on the balance sheet, the new guidance will also require operating leases of the lessee to be recognized on the balance sheet if the operating lease term is more than 12 months.  The guidance also requires disclosures to help investors and other financial statement users to better understand the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases.  These disclosures include qualitative and quantitative requirements, providing additional information about the amounts recorded in the financial statements.  The guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim reporting periods therein, beginning after December 15, 2018 and is to be applied using the modified retrospective approach.  The Company expects to adopt this standard in its first quarter of its fiscal year ending September 30, 2020.  The Company currently is not a lessee under any lease agreements with a term longer than one year.  The Company is routinely a lessor in its rental contracts with customers; however,

these rental agreements are short-term in nature and would be treated as operating leases under the new guidance.  As a result, the Company does not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material effect upon its consolidated financial statements.  

 

In July 2015, the FASB issued guidance requiring management to measure inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value.  Under the new guidance, net realizable value is defined as the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation.  The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period and should be applied retrospectively, with early application permitted.  The Company expects to adopt this standard in its first quarter of its fiscal year ending September 30, 2018.  Since the Company is a manufacturer and the nature of its inventory is generally unique to its designs and applications thus preventing the gathering of relevant external market data, its practice for calculating net realizable value under the current standard is consistent with the practice prescribed by the new guidance. Therefore, the Company does not expect the adoption of the new guidance to have a material effect upon its consolidated financial statements.  

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued guidance requiring management to evaluate whether there are conditions and events that raise substantial doubt about an entity's ability to continue as a going concern and to provide disclosures in certain circumstances.  The new guidance was issued to reduce diversity in the timing and content of footnote disclosures.  This guidance is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2016 and interim reporting periods thereafter.  The Company’s management will begin evaluating any potential events and conditions which raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern upon adoption on September 30, 2017.  The adoption of this guidance may result in additional disclosures to our consolidated financial statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued guidance requiring entities to recognize revenue from contracts with customers by applying a five-step model in accordance with the core principle to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services.  In addition, this guidance specifies the accounting for some costs to obtain or fulfill a contract with a customer and expands disclosure requirements for revenue recognition.  In August 2015, the FASB issued guidance deferring the effective date of this guidance to annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods therein.  Entities have the option to adopt this guidance either retrospectively or through a modified retrospective transition method.  This new standard will supersede existing revenue guidance and affect the Company's revenue recognition process and the presentations or disclosures of the Company's consolidated financial statements and footnotes.  The Company recognizes revenue through three primary transactions types:  (i) the immediate recognition of revenue through the routine delivery of products to its customers, (ii) the rental of equipment to its customers through short-term operating leases, and (iii) the recognition of revenue utilizing the percentage of completion method for the delivery of complex products requiring long manufacturing times and substantial engineering resources.  While the Company does not expect the new guidance to impact its routine product sales or rental contracts, the new guidance could impact the manner in which it recognizes revenue using the percentage of completion method. The Company expects to adopt this standard in the first quarter of its fiscal year ending September 30, 2019 and is in the early stages of evaluating the standard including the method of adoption to determine the impact on its consolidated financial statements.  Further disclosures around policy changes or quantitative effects will be made as the Company moves closer to the adoption of this standard.

3.   Derivative Financial Instruments

At March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016, the Company’s Canadian subsidiary had $27.1 million of Canadian dollar denominated intercompany accounts payable owed to one of the Company’s U.S. subsidiaries.  In order to mitigate its exposure to movements in foreign currency rates between the U.S. dollar and Canadian dollar, the Company routinely enters into foreign currency forward contracts to hedge a portion of its exposure to changes in the value of the Canadian dollar.  Approximately $2.9 million of these Canadian dollar denominated intercompany accounts payable are considered by management to be of a short-term nature whereby the appreciation or devaluation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar will result in a gain or loss, respectively, to the consolidated statement of operations.  The Company considers the remaining $24.2 million Canadian dollar denominated intercompany accounts payable to be of a long-term nature whereby settlement is not planned or anticipated in the foreseeable future; therefore, any resulting foreign exchange gains and losses are reported in the consolidated balance sheets as a component of other comprehensive income in accordance with ASC 830 “Foreign Currency Matters”.  On March 31, 2017, the Company entered into a $3.0 million Canadian dollar 90-day hedge contract with a United States bank to hedge a portion of its short-term Canadian dollar foreign exchange rate exposure.  This contract reduces the impact on cash flows from movements in the Canadian dollar/U.S. dollar currency exchange rate, but has not been designated as a hedge for accounting purposes.

7.   Long-Term Debt

The Company had no long-term debt outstanding at March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016.

On March 2, 2011, the Company entered into a credit agreement with Frost Bank with borrowing availability of $50.0 million (the “Credit Agreement”).  On May 4, 2015, the Company amended the Credit Agreement which reduced its borrowing availability to $30.0 million with amounts available for borrowing determined by a borrowing base.  Under the amendments to the Credit Agreement, the borrowing base is determined based upon certain of the Company’s and its U.S. subsidiaries’ assets which include (i) 80% of certain accounts receivable plus (ii) 50% of certain notes receivable (such result not to exceed $10 million) plus (iii) 25% of certain inventories (excluding work-in-process inventories).  As of March 31, 2017, the Company’s borrowing base was $30.7 million resulting in borrowing availability of $30.0 million less $0.4 million of outstanding letters of credit.  The Company’s domestic subsidiaries have guaranteed the obligations of the Company under the Credit Agreement and such subsidiaries have secured their obligations under such guarantees by the pledge of substantially all of the assets of such subsidiaries, except real property assets.  The Credit Agreement expires on May 4, 2018 and all borrowed funds are due and payable at that time.  The Company is required to make monthly interest payments on borrowed funds.  The Credit Agreement as amended limits the incurrence of additional indebtedness, requires the maintenance of a single financial ratio that compares certain of the Company’s assets to certain of its liabilities, restricts the Company and its subsidiaries’ ability to pay cash dividends and contains other covenants customary in agreements of this type.  The interest rate for borrowings under the Credit Agreement as amended is based on the Wall Street Journal prime rate, which was 4.00% at March 31, 2017.  At March 31, 2017, the Company was in compliance with all covenants under the Credit Agreement.

9.   Stock-Based Compensation

During the six months ended March 31, 2017, the Company issued 109,500 shares of restricted stock under its 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Plan”).  The weighted average grant date fair value of the restricted stock was $21.12 per share.  The grant date fair value of these awards was $2.3 million, which will be charged to expense over the next four years as the restrictions lapse.  Compensation expense for restricted stock awards was determined based on the closing market price of the

13


GEOSPACE TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

 

Company’s stock on the date of grant applied to the total number of shares that are anticipated to fully vest.  Recipients of restricted stock awards are entitled to vote such shares and are entitled to dividends, if paid.

During the six months ended March 31, 2017, the Company also issued 51,300 nonqualified stock options under the Plan.  The options issued are based upon three tiers, each with separate service based vesting conditions and market conditions that affect exercisability.  Market based conditions are based on achieving a specified market return on the Company’s stock price.  Compensation expense for the nonqualified stock option awards was determined based on a Monte Carlo simulation, which incorporates the possibility that the market conditions may not be satisfied.  The weighted average grant date fair value of the options issued was determined to be $9.35 per option resulting in unrecognized compensation costs of $0.5 million, which will be charged to expense over the requisite service period of the options, ranging from 18 to 36 months.

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had unrecognized compensation expense of $6.5 million relating to restricted stock awards.  This unrecognized compensation expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.8 years.  In addition, the Company had $0.5 million of unrecognized compensation expense related to nonqualified stock option awards which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.7 years.

As of March 31, 2017, a total of 293,500 shares of restricted stock and 206,300 nonqualified stock options shares were outstanding.
