CleanSpark Reports Second Quarter FY2024 Financial Results

FY2024 Second Quarter Revenue of $111.8 million, net income of $126.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $181.8 million

Revenue grows 163% YoY 

Current hashrate surpasses 17 EH/s 

LAS VEGAS, May 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK) (the “Company”), America’s Bitcoin Miner™, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2024. The Company will hold its earnings call today at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET.

“We’ve achieved remarkable milestones this past quarter, ultimately becoming what we believe to be the top operator at scale in the industry, as we increased our operational capacity by over 60%, extended our footprint with new facilities in Mississippi and Georgia, and bolstered our total capacity to over 17 EH/s,” said Zach Bradford, CEO. “These efforts have driven a significant rise in our revenue, underscoring the effectiveness of our strategic initiatives and targeted growth. As we press ahead, our focus remains on innovation, measured growth, and strengthening our unique position in the market to deliver sustained value to our shareholders. Our commitment is not only to today’s success but to fostering a resilient and thriving future for all our stakeholders.”

“The second quarter was record breaking and historic for CleanSpark, as we recognized approximately $112 million of revenue,” said Gary A. Vecchiarelli, CFO. “Our margins have also increased over the preceding first quarter which were helped by the rise in bitcoin prices and expanded margins. At our wholly owned sites, we experienced wholesale power costs as low as 1.3 cents per kilowatt hour, and a very favorable all-in power cost of 4.3 cents per kilowatt hour. We also ended the quarter with almost $700 million in cash and bitcoin, and virtually no debt, which put us in a strong position for the halving and will allow us to take advantage of opportunities the halving presents.”

Non-GAAP Measure

The Company presents adjusted EBITDA, which is not a measurement of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States(“GAAP”). The Company’s non-GAAP “Adjusted EBITDA” excludes (i) impacts of interest, taxes, and depreciation; (ii) the Company’s share-based compensation expense, unrealized gains/losses on securities, and, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration with respect to previously completed acquisitions, all of which are non-cash items that the Company believes are not reflective of the Company’s general business performance, and for which the accounting requires management judgment, and the resulting expenses could vary significantly in comparison to other companies; (iii) non-cash impairment losses related to long-lived assets (including goodwill); (iv) realized gains and losses on sales of equity securities, the amounts of which are directly related to the unrealized gains and losses that are also excluded; (v) legal fees related to litigation and various transactions, which fees management does not believe are reflective of the Company’s ongoing operating activities; (vi) gains and losses on disposal of assets, the majority of which are related to obsolete or unrepairable machines that are no longer deployed; (vii) gains and losses related to discontinued operations that would not be applicable to the Company’s future business activities; and (viii) severance expenses. The Company previously excluded non-cash impairment losses related to digital assets and realized gains and losses on sales of bitcoin from our calculation of adjusted EBITDA, but has determined such items are part of the Company’s normal ongoing operations and will no longer be excluding them from our calculation of adjusted EBITDA.

Management believes that providing this non-GAAP financial measure that excludes these items allows for meaningful comparisons between the Company’s core business operating results and those of other companies, and provides 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. In addition to management’s internal use of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, management believes that adjusted EBITDA is also useful to investors and analysts in comparing the Company’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis. Management believes the foregoing to be the case even though some of the excluded items involve cash outlays and some of them recur on a regular basis (although management does not believe any of such items are normal operating expenses necessary to generate our bitcoin related revenues). For example, the Company expects that share-based compensation expense, which is excluded from adjusted EBITDA, will continue to be a significant recurring expense over the coming years and is an important part of the compensation provided to certain employees, officers, and directors. Additionally, management does not consider any of the excluded items to be expenses necessary to generate the Company’s bitcoin related revenue.

The Company’s adjusted EBITDA measure may not be directly comparable to similar measures provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently. The Company’s adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to operating (loss) income or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. Although management utilizes internally and presents adjusted EBITDA, the Company only utilizes that measure supplementally and does not consider it to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results.

Accordingly, adjusted EBITDA is not meant to be considered in isolation of, and should be read in conjunction with, the information contained in the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP.
