Final ASIC Bitcoin Miner shipments have been received, no further payments due for ASIC Bitcoin Miner deliveries
Mawson’s Hosting Co-location deployment and agreements with Celsius Mining LLC continue to perform as expected
Mawson to defer all major forward capital expenditure until market conditions normalize
Mawson continues to sell its Self-Mined Bitcoin daily, as it has done since inception
ATLANTA, June 28, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mawson Infrastructure Group Inc. (NASDAQ:MIGI) ("Mawson"), a digital infrastructure provider, is pleased to provide an energy demand response program participation and market update.
In response to volatile energy markets Mawson is actively engaging in energy demand response programs at its operations. These energy demand response programs, which are primarily managed via both Mawson’s team and energy demand response partner Voltus Inc ("Voltus"), involve curtailed uptime across our operations in exchange for energy demand response revenue and reduced energy costs. When energy prices are low, Mawson engages in Bitcoin Mining and generates revenue by selling Self-Mined Bitcoin which is produced daily, as it has from inception. When energy prices are high, Mawson engages in energy demand response programs, receiving revenue and reducing overall energy costs.
Mawson has now received the final shipment of Canaan A1246 ASIC Bitcoin Miners in June, and as a result has no further payments due for Bitcoin Miner deliveries and intends to continue to deploy these final shipments to increase its Self-Mining hash rate over the coming months. Mawson has also taken the decision to defer all major forward capital expenditure until market conditions normalize.
Mawson continues to provide Hosting Co-location services, including its agreement with Celsius Mining LLC. Mawson’s contracts are on a cost-plus basis, with a strong security position and deployments are ongoing across Mawson’s USA Bitcoin Mining Facilities.
James Manning, CEO and Founder of Mawson, said, "Despite a volatile market, Mawson is currently continuing to self-mine and is also participating in energy demand response programs where applicable. We are fortunate to have no outstanding contracts for the purchase of ASIC Bitcoin Miners, enabling us to focus on the development of our co-location business as an alternate revenue stream while the Bitcoin price is suppressed. Our largest customer, Celsius Mining LLC continues to perform as expected as we scale up their deployment. The decision to defer any major expansion CAPEX in the current market environment is the sensible decision until market conditions normalize."
Gregg Dixon, CEO of Voltus, said, "Given volatile energy markets across the USA at present, monetizing distributed energy resources is an ideal way for companies like Mawson to generate revenue and reduce costs as a result. We are very pleased to be working with the Mawson team on this project."
