CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pulse Seismic Inc. (TSX:PSD) (OTCQX:PLSDF) (“Pulse” or “the Company”) is pleased to report its financial and operating results for the year ended December 31, 2019. The audited consolidated financial statements, accompanying notes and MD&A are being filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and will be available on Pulse’s website at www.pulseseismic.com.
“Despite 2019 being year five of the ongoing downturn in Western Canada’s oil and natural gas sector, Pulse generated strong levels of cash EBITDA and shareholder free cash flow throughout the year,” stated Neal Coleman, Pulse’s President and CEO. “In January 2019 Pulse closed the opportunistic and transformative acquisition of Seitel Canada Ltd. The result for 2019 was a 64% increase in sales over the sales generated from the combined data libraries in 2018. Having doubled our database, and therefore doubled our opportunity sets, Pulse has been able to capitalize on a larger range of traditional data sales, and has continued potential to benefit from a greater number of industry transactions that generate relicensing fees.”HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2019 was $24.2 million compared to $10.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2018.The Company incurred a net loss of $3.4 million ($0.06 per share basic and diluted) for 2019 compared to a net loss of $1.7 million ($0.03 per share basic and diluted) for 2018;Cash EBITDA(a) was $17.6 million ($0.33 per share basic and diluted) for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to $5.0 million ($0.09 per share basic and diluted) for the year ended December 31, 2018;Shareholder free cash flow(a) was $13.6 million ($0.25 per share basic and diluted) for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to $4.7 million ($0.09 per share basic and diluted) for the year ended December 31, 2018; andAt December 31, 2018, the Company had a cash balance of $23.0 million and no debt.
