Operational Highlights – Quarter ended March 31, 2021

  • In March 2021, the Company closed an underwritten public offering and received gross proceeds of $200 million, before deducting underwriting expenses and fees. This has been a catalyst to create significant growth. We have focused a large portion of the capital to expand our Bitcoin mining operations along with supporting our expanded sales and marketing initiatives for our Energy business.
  • Our project to add 30MW of additional power to support additional CleanSpark Bitcoin mining operations is ongoing. Upon completion of the project, this will bring the total power available for mining and data centers for CleanSpark subsidiaries from 20MW to 50MW. The capacity increase is underway and is expected to be complete by summer 2021. In addition to the 30 MW of additional power to be delivered by the local utility, CleanSpark expects to subsequently add renewable energy generating assets and energy storage to the site, which will be operated by the Company’s patented mPulse controls.
  • We have seen rapid growth in our Electric Vehicle (EV) charging initiative, and we now have 11 Companies that are using our 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.
  • We implemented new sales and marketing initiatives resulting in increased sales and contracted backlog. Contracted backlog consists of executed and binding contracts that will result in future delivery of products and services. As of March 31, 2021, our contracted backlog was $21.6 million. This backlog has continued to grow as we further expand our sales efforts and as of May 6, 2021, our contracted backlog was $24.5 million.

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, 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.
