Mitcham Industries Inc 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 and deep water marine areas.

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 and deep water marine areas. It operates in two segments, Equipment Leasing and Equipment Manufacturing & Sales. Its equipment leasing operations include all leasing activity, sales of lease pool equipment and certain other equipment sales and services related to those operations. This business is conducted from Huntsville, Texas headquarters and from its locations in Calgary, Canada; Brisbane, Australia; Lima, Peru; Bogota, Colombia; Budapest, Hungary; Singapore and Ufa, Russia. This includes the operations of MCL, MEL, MML and MSE, its branches in Peru and Colombia and the leasing operations conducted by SAP. Equipment Manufacturing and Sales includes sales of Seamap equipment, sales of Klein equipment and sales of oceanographic and hydrographic equipment by SAP. This segment operates from locations near Bristol, United Kingdom, Brisbane, Australia, Salem, New Hampshire and in Singapore. 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 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 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. Its 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 t
