Third Quarter 2023 GAAP Financial Results
Revenue for the third quarter 2023, ended September 30, 2023, increased 7% sequentially to $11.3 million. The increase was the result of the successful increase in Mawson’s self-mining business across its Pennsylvania sites. Over the same quarter last year, revenue decreased 60% driven by the Company’s sale of its Georgia facility in October 2022.
Cost of revenue in the third quarter of 2023 decreased 58% compared to the same period in the prior year and increased 10% sequentially to $7.7 million, from $7.0 million. Higher energy costs associated with the increased load of self-mining capacity across the Pennsylvania sites, were offset by lower energy usage from the reduction in co-location operations part way through the quarter. Year on year lower energy and associated costs from the sale of the Georgia facility led to the comparative reductions, respectively. Gross profit increased 3% sequentially to $3.6 million driven by combination of operational improvements, lower power costs, improved BTC market metrics, and decreased 64% from $10.1 million from the same quarter last year driven by the reduction in self-mining and co-location operations associated with the sale of the Company’s Georgia facility.
SG&A expense for the third quarter of 2023 decreased 42% sequentially to $3.7 million from $6.3 million due to the initial results of the Company’s operational efficiencies and our cost-optimization activities implemented by new management over recent months and decreased from $5.0 million compared to the same quarter last year.
In the third quarter of 2023, Mawson incurred a net loss of $16.2 million compared to $17.7 million in the prior quarter and $8.2 million for the same quarter last year, with an adjusted EBITDA of a net loss of $0.04 million in the third quarter of 2023 compared to a net loss of $0.18 million in the prior quarter.
