Business Description

Industry: Computer Hardware » Scientific & Technical Instruments
Compare:BOX, TAL, HTZ, URI, AYR » details
Traded in other countries:MI7.Germany,
Mitcham Industries Inc is a Texas corporation was incorporated in 1987. The Company leases and sells geophysical and other equipment used primarily by seismic data acquisition contractors to perform seismic data acquisition surveys on land, in transition zones (marsh and shallow water areas) and deep water marine areas. It operates in two business segments: equipment leasing and manufacturing. The Companys equipment leasing segment is engaged in the leasing of seismic equipment to companies in the oil and gas industry. It also sells new and used seismic equipment from time to time. The manufacturing segment is engaged in the design, production and sale of marine seismic equipment. Its lease pool includes many types of equipment used in seismic data acquisition, including various electronic components of land, transition zone and marine seismic data acquisition systems, geophones and cables, peripheral equipment, survey and other equipment. The Company leases its equipment on a short-term basis, generally for two to six months, to seismic contractors who need equipment for a particular seismic survey. Certain equipment that is used in vertical seismic profiling, or downhole operations, is generally leased to oil field service companies and generally for shorter periods, ranging from a few days to two weeks. Short-term leasing agreements enable its customers to achieve operating and capital investment efficiencies. A typical seismic crew uses a wide variety of equipment to perform seismic data acquisition surveys. Its customers may lease a small amount of equipment to expand an existing crews capabilities or a complete seismic data acquisition system to equip an entire crew. Demand for short-term seismic equipment leases is affected by many factors, including: the highly variable size and technological demands of individual seismic surveys, seasonal weather patterns and sporadic demand for seismic surveys in certain regions, the term of the lease; and the cost of seismic equipment. These factors allow seismic contractors to use short-term seismic equipment leasing as a cost-effective alternative to purchasing additional equipment. Its equipment lease rates vary according to an items expected useful life, utilization, acquisition cost and the term of the lease. The Companys competitors include the seismic equipment manufacturers who sell equipment on financed terms or offer leases with purchase options and seismic contractors who might have excess equipment available for lease from time to time. The Company is subject to stringent governmental laws and regulations, both in the United States and other countries, pertaining to worker safety and health, protection of the environment and the manner in which chemicals and materials used in its manufacturing processes are handled and wastes generated from such operations are disposed.
