MIND Technology Announces Deferral of Preferred Stock Dividend

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, April 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — MIND Technology, Inc. (“MIND” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: MIND) announced today that the Company’s Board of Directors has elected not to declare a quarterly cash dividend on its 9.00% Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock (“Series A Preferred Stock”) for the first quarter of its fiscal year ending January 31, 2024.

Rob Capps, MIND’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We continue to maintain a robust backlog of business and expect to turn this backlog into significant revenue in the coming quarters. We’ve also responded to a number of requests for quotes that specify our products, and we are highly confident that we will convert these inquiries to backlog in the near future.

“Due to potential liquidity demands to complete these, and other expected orders, and the timing uncertainty of cash flows, we feel it prudent to again defer the payment of the quarterly dividend on our Series A Preferred Stock.” 

The Company may defer dividend payments on the Series A Preferred Stock, but the dividend is a cumulative dividend that accrues for payment in the future.  During a deferral period, the Company is prohibited from paying dividends or distributions on its common stock, or redeeming any of those shares.  Further, if the Company does not pay dividends on its Series A Preferred Stock for six or more quarters, the holders of Series A Preferred Stock will have the right to appoint two directors to the Company’s board.
