Dear Fellow Shareholders,

The past months have been challenging for the entire world and our hearts go out to all those that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We count ourselves as very fortunate as we delivered our seventh consecutive record-setting quarter with a significant increase in year-over-year revenues during this trying period. Through our strategic acquisition of p2klabs, Inc. and expansion of our existing product offerings, we are optimistic that we will continue to see increased adoption of our solutions and associated revenues.  

Our sales in fiscal 2020 are led by sales of our custom switch gear equipment with $4.0 Million in products delivered during the six months ending March 31, 2020.  We continue to see a sizable percentage of repeat customers in this segment and we expect this trend to continue throughout 2020.  As of March 31, 2020, CleanSpark had a total of approximately $3.5 million in hardware purchase orders under contract, which we expect to deliver over the next two quarters.  We continue to target $7.0 million in delivered equipment sales prior to the end of our fiscal year.

We plan to continue increasing our marketing focus on our mPulse software and controls platform and mVSO, (microgrid Value Stream Optimizer) our Software as a Service (SaaS) energy design and modeling platform. We expect these efforts will result in increased revenues and an improved margin profile.  To further aid the company in these actions we were pleased to announce the addition of Marty Weishaar as our new Vice-President of Marketing, in March 2020.  Marty formerly served as the New Products Director at Lending Tree.  During the six months ending March 31, 2020, we delivered over $345,000 in software, energy storage and associated hardware. As of the date of this release we have over $1.15 Million in additional software, energy storage and associated hardware orders under contract and we continue to target $1.0 million in delivered revenue related to this category prior to the end of our fiscal year.

On January 31, 2020 we closed on the acquisition of p2klabs. This acquisition has enabled CleanSpark to accelerate the development and deployment of new features to our software platforms while also expanding our overall sales and marketing capabilities. p2klabs increased the depth of talent to our team, including the addition of Amer Tadayon, the President of p2klabs who now serves CleanSpark as the company's Chief Revenue officer.  In addition to his experience at p2klabs, Amer has worked with world-class companies including IBM, Cognizant and frog Design.  In addition to the internal resources provided, p2klabs produces high-margin service revenues and contributed a total of $231,000 in revenues between February 1, 2020 and March 31, 2020.  Since the acquisition closed we have invested in marketing and additional staff for the p2klabs business and expect the quarterly revenue contribution to increase significantly over the coming quarters. We continue to target $2.0 million in p2klabs revenue prior to the one-year anniversary of the acquisition, January 31, 2021.

As of March 31, 2020, in total as an organization, the Company had over $5.6 million in revenue under contract from all three major lines of business that is expected to be delivered over the next three quarters.

We greatly appreciate the continued support from all our shareholders as we continue to put our efforts towards increasing shareholder value, achieving profitability and improving our margin profile through increased software and service revenues. 

Sincerely,

Zachary Bradford, CEO and S. Matthew Schultz, Chairman
