Company Affirms Long-Term Blockchain Strategy by Signing MOU to Secure Real Estate Asset Providing Significant Power with Deep Cost Reduction
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), a diversified holding company (“DPW” or the “Company”), announced today that its wholly owned indirect subsidiary, Super Crypto Mining, Inc. (“SCM”), is changing its name to Digital Farms Inc. (“DFI”). In conjunction with changing its name, DFI anticipates entering into a new partnership with Digital Farms Management, LLC (“DFM”), a company with deep experience in the data center development and management sector as well as with the real estate markets. The partnership intends to purchase a data-center in Michigan and leverage the many positive attributes of the real estate asset.
DFI recognizes that controlling electrical costs at the lowest possible rates is key to ensuring long-term success in crypto-mining.
The new partnership represents a natural evolution of DFI’s long-term strategy of securing inexpensive power at more than a 60% reduction of its current cost that will be guaranteed the next 5 years. DFI believes that the reduced power costs will increase the profitability of its mining business and that the partnership will strengthen the foundation of its business by having seasoned professionals manage the partnership’s growth by leveraging the real estate asset that adds over 600,000 sq. ft. of space and the availability of up to 300 MW of power. The real estate is already cash-flow positive and is designed as a multi-use facility supporting computing (enterprise data center and high-density computing) and office and warehouse space.
CEO Darren Magot said “This new partnership demonstrates our focus on finding the lowest possible electrical costs in order to maximize profits and create future opportunities for growth within the blockchain environment. We are looking forward to working with the experienced team at Digital Farms Management as we execute on our goals for future growth in the blockchain and data center space.”
DFM will operate the new data center location for the partnership. Both DFI and DFM believe Michigan is an optimal location for this first data center for many reasons including the cooperative and helpful local city officials, significant power available onsite, no personal property taxes imposed in Michigan (making the operation of expensive computing equipment less costly for customers), low property acquisition costs, and the facility has a positive net operating income at acquisition.
CEO and Chairman, Milton “Todd” Ault, III said, “Super Crypto Mining, soon to be Digital Farms Inc., has navigated a very difficult environment demonstrating that it is clearly dedicated to blockchain and the opportunities in the space. DPW supports the transaction which will use traditional real estate financing that will be non-dilutive to DPW and its shareholders.”
