Operational Highlights – Quarter ended June 30, 2021

  • Current hashrate capacity now exceeds 820 PH/s, which is nearly double the capacity just 46 days ago. The Company anticipates achieving 1.0 EH/s in production capacity within the coming month when the balance of the mining rigs scheduled to be hashing in August are installed. To put this in perspective, the Company produced just over 3 BTC on June 30. It is now capable of producing between 6 and 7 Bitcoin per day. At current difficulty rates, 1.0 EH/s would result in approximately 8-9 bitcoins per day, which would result in $376,000 to $423,000 per day, or $137 million to $154 million in annualized revenue, using a bitcoin price of $47,000.

  • CleanSpark continues to work on expanding its total energy capacity to accelerate the growth of its bitcoin mining operations in Atlanta this fall. The expansion will bring this site’s total capacity to 50 MW. In addition to this expansion, a partnership with Coinmint has allowed the Company to continue growth while construction is ongoing. All the new mining rigs received this summer were promptly deployed with Coinmint. This partnership has increased the total available power for mining by approximately 25 MW.

  • CleanSpark has over 22,000 of the latest generation Bitmain S19 and S19 Pro mining rigs scheduled to arrive and be installed over the next 12 to 14 months, and the Company expects to place additional orders in the near future to continue growing its mining fleet beyond what it has currently ordered. As a result of these pre-orders, the hashrate is expected to increase to 3.4 EH/s. For perspective, at current difficulty rates, if the full 3.4 EH/s of capacity were in place today it would result in 26 to 28 bitcoins per day. This capacity, in turn, would result in $1.2 to $1.3 million per day, or $446 million to $480 million in annualized revenue, using a Bitcoin price of $47,000.

  • CleanSpark has seen continued growth in its Electric Vehicle (EV) charging initiative, with 15 EV companies now using the Company’s OpenADR software solutions to aid in load management for EV charging stations and balancing the impact the increased power demand has on the traditional grid.

  • The Company continues to see strong growth trends in the energy business. CleanSpark executed over $6.0 million in additional energy-related contracts last quarter and increased its quarter-over-quarter revenues by 61%. This strong sales growth has resulted in a very robust backlog that is expected to result in positive revenue growth over the next several quarters. Although the Company is seeing strong sales growth, the energy industry as a whole is still encountering certain global supply chain constraints, such as the tight battery supply experienced in the Company’s past quarter. Fortunately, the supply chain is being shored up and a large number of batteries were received into inventory in June and July. CleanSpark expects positive improvements to the overall global supply chain and continued normalization through the balance of 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management believes that the use of adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or adjusted EBITDA, is helpful for an investor to assess the performance of the Company. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as income (loss) attributable to common stockholders before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, impairment of long-lived assets, financing costs, stock-based compensation expense, other non-cash expenses, certain non-recurring expenses, and expenses related to discontinued operations.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS is not a measurement of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash operating expenses, CleanSpark management believes that providing a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash and non-recurring expenses allows for meaningful comparisons between the Company’s core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing the Company with an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating its own core business operating results over different periods of time.

The Company’s adjusted EBITDA measure may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in its industry, as other companies in its industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. The Company’s adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. CleanSpark management does not consider adjusted EBITDA to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results.
