Hut 8 Reports Operating and Financial Results for Q3 2022

Strong quarterly revenue of $31.7 million
Bitcoin holdings increased 13.3% in Q3 to 8,388 as at September 30, 2022
Achieved adjusted EBITDA of $2.1 million

TORONTO, ON, November 10, 2022 — Hut 8 Mining Corp. (Nasdaq | TSX: HUT), (“Hut 8” or the “Company”) one of North America’s largest, innovation-focused digital asset mining pioneers and high performance computing infrastructure provider, is pleased to announce its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 (“Q3 2022”). All dollar figures are in Canadian Dollars (“CAD”), unless otherwise stated.

“Throughout the quarter, we remained laser focused on optimizing our operations across both mining and high performance computing, while continuing to grow our HPC capabilities and attract new Blockchain customers,” said Hut 8 CEO Jaime Leverton. “With the largest self-mined unencumbered Bitcoin stack of any publicly traded company, we continue to mine at modest costs despite fluctuating power prices, increasing network difficulty, and sustained pressure on the price of Bitcoin.”

“Our conservative approach to managing our balance sheet continues to be paramount for us at Hut 8,” said Shane Downey, CFO of Hut 8.  “Notably, we improved our mining capacity by 10% while reducing the average cost to mine each Bitcoin by 29%, when compared to the second quarter of 2022. We remain steadfastly committed to effectively managing capital in today’s challenging environment and believe we are well positioned to deliver shareholder value in 2023 and beyond.”

Q3 2022 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Revenue decreased by $18.6 million to $31.7 million in Q3 2022 compared to $50.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 (“Q3 2021”).
  • The Company mined 982 Bitcoin in Q3 2022, an 8.5% increase compared to Q3 2021 due to an increase in hashrate from the expansion of the Company fleet of miners and mining activities.
  • Hut 8’s high performance computing operations generated $4.4 million of revenue in the quarter, the majority of which is monthly recurring revenue.
  • The Company installed an aggregate of 2,205 new MicroBT M30S, M30S+, M30S++ and M31S+ miners at its three mining sites during Q3 2022. The installation of these miners brought Hut 8’s operating capacity to 3.07 EH/s as of September 30, 2022, an increase of 10% in hashrate compared to June 30, 2022.

FINANCIAL SUMMARY

 

Revenue for Q3 2022 was $31.7 million compared to $50.3 million in Q3 2021. The decrease was primarily driven by the Company’s digital asset mining operations, where the Company mined 982 Bitcoin and generated $27.3 million of revenue, versus 905 Bitcoin mined and $47.9 million of revenue in Q3 2021. The increase in Bitcoin mined is due to the increase in Hut 8’s average hashrate. The Company’s newly-acquired high performance computing operations generated $4.4 million of primarily recurring revenue in the quarter.

Net loss for Q3 2022 was $23.8 million and net loss per share was $0.12, compared to net income of $23.4 million and net income per share of $0.16 for the same period in 2021. The change reflects the lower revenue from digital asset mining operations and higher cost of revenue in Q3 2022.

Mining profit(i) was $9.3 million in Q3 2022, compared to $33.5 million in Q3 2021. The change is mainly due to a lower average Bitcoin price and increased average power costs, which were partially offset by the revenue associated with the higher number of Bitcoin mined.

Adjusted EBITDA(i) was $2.1 million, compared to $30.7 million in Q3 2021. Contributions from high performance computing operations were offset by compressed mining margins.

Cost of revenue consists of site operating costs and depreciation and was $45.6 million for Q3 2022 compared to $21.2 million in Q3 2021. Site operating costs for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, was $20.3 million, of which $18.0 million was attributable to our mining operations and $2.3 million to our high performance computing operations. The average cost of mining each Bitcoin for Q3 2022 was approximately $18,300, compared to approximately $17,700 per Bitcoin in Q3 2021. The increase in average cost of mining Bitcoin was due to a combination of increased Bitcoin network difficulty and higher power prices, largely offset by the deployment of a more efficient mining fleet. Notably, the cost decreased by $7,600 or 29% as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2022 primarily due to improved energy prices. Depreciation expense increased to $25.3 million during Q3 2022 compared to $5.2 million in Q3 2021, driven by the significant deployment of new mining equipment over the past twelve months as well as $1.3 million of depreciation from our newly acquired high performance computing operations.

For more information, please refer to the Management’s Discussion & Analysis and the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements of the Company for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021. These documents will be available on the Company’s website at www.hut8mining.com, under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com, and under the Company’s EDGAR profile at www.sec.gov.

NON-IFRS MEASURES

This press release makes reference to certain measures that are not recognized under IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. They are therefore not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Company uses non-IFRS measures including “Adjusted EBITDA” and “Mining profit” as additional information to complement IFRS measures by providing further understanding of the Company’s results of operations from Management’s perspective and should not be viewed as alternatives to, or replacements of, measures of operating results and liquidity presented in accordance with IFRS.

The following tables and definitions reconcile non-IFRS measures used by the Company to analyze the operational performance of Hut 8, to their nearest IFRS measure and should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.

Mining Profit

Mining profit represents gross profit (revenue less cost of revenue), excluding depreciation and revenue and site operating costs directly attributable to hosting services and high performance computing operations. Mining profit shows profitability of the Company’s core digital asset mining operation, without the impact of non-cash depreciation expense. Mining profit measure provides the investors the ability to assess the profitability of the mining operations exclusive of general and administrative expenses.

The following table reconciles Gross profit to our non-IFRS measure, Mining profit:

 Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA (net income or loss excluding net finance income or expense, income tax or recovery, depreciation, and amortization) adjusted to exclude non-cash share-based compensation, fair value gain or loss on revaluation of digital assets and warrants, non-recurring impairment charges or reversals of impairment, and costs associated with one-time or non-recurring transactions. Adjusted EBITDA is used to assess profitability without the impact of non-cash accounting policies, capital structure and one-time or non-recurring transactions. This performance measure provides a consistent comparable metric for profitability of the Company across time periods.

The following table reconciles net income (loss) to our non-IFRS measure, adjusted EBITDA:

CORPORATE UPDATES

On September 15, 2022, the Ethereum network changed its consensus mechanism from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake, and as a result, the Company is no longer using its fleet of graphics processing units (“GPUs”) to mine the Ethereum network. Hut 8 is re-deploying its fleet of GPUs into certain high performance computing data centres and will continue to explore new opportunities to leverage the hardware, including in the zero-knowledge proof and Layer 2 space, as well as rendering and machine learning.

On November 9, 2022, the Company delivered a notice of event of default to Validus Power Corp. (“Validus”), a third-party supplier of energy to the Company’s mining facility in North Bay, Ontario. Validus has failed to achieve certain key operational milestones by the dates contemplated under the terms of the power purchase agreement (“PPA”) it entered into with the Company. Validus has also demanded that the Company make payments for delivery of energy that are higher than those negotiated under the terms of the PPA. Hut 8 has been in ongoing dialogue with Validus in an attempt to mitigate the operational and commercial impacts arising from the Validus defaults and Validus’ failure to meet its contractual obligations under the PPA. However, such mitigation efforts have been unsuccessful to date and the Company was required to deliver the notice of event of default.

The Company intends to pursue all legal remedies available to it to enforce the terms of the PPA and will provide additional updates to the market in respect of the North Bay facility as appropriate. Notwithstanding the notice of event of default, the Company is exploring alternatives to mitigate any potential effect on its operations, including through potential organic and inorganic growth opportunities. There is no assurance that energy will continue to be delivered on an uninterrupted basis to North Bay under the terms of the PPA. Such actions may hinder the Company’s ability to continue its mining activities at the North Bay site, and if any such mining activities are continued, they may not be performed at previously disclosed rates.

For more information, refer to the Management’s Discussion & Analysis of the Company referred to above.

CONFERENCE CALL

Hut 8’s Q3 2022 conference call will begin at 10 a.m. ET on November 10, 2022. Those wishing to join via telephone should dial in 5 minutes early:

Hut 8 Mining Announces Third Site Status Update

TORONTOOct. 23, 2021 /CNW/ – Hut 8 Mining Corp. (Nasdaq: HUT) (TSX: HUT) (“Hut 8″ or “the Company”), one of North America’s largest, innovation-focused digital asset mining pioneers, is pleased to announce that the development of its third mining site, in conjunction with Validus Power Corp. (“Validus”), is underway.

This site, located in North Bay, Ontario, will begin with 35MW of capacity and is expected to be online by the end of 2021.  The North Bay site will enable Hut 8 to generate power using a blend of by-product steam, hydrogen and natural gas along with a secondary geothermal system that ties in the data centre facility.

“We couldn’t be more excited to diversify our power blend across the country and to continue to take advantage of Canada’s favourable climate,” said Jaime Leverton, CEO of Hut 8.  “This third location demonstrates our commitment to sustainable technological innovation as we continue to expand our operations and strive to remain an industry leading Bitcoin miner.”

Earlier this year the Company reported it would be developing a third site in Alberta, Canada. Supply chain constraints and COVID disruptions in Alberta challenged the development timelines and therefore a strategic decision has been made to accelerate the development of the third site at a Validus-owned location in North Bay, Ontario.

“We’ve been working very closely with Hut 8 to advance our collective clean energy strategies and power efficiency,” commented Todd Shortt, President and CEO of Validus Power.  “This is a unique combination of power and data centre operations.  We are thrilled to launch this site in Northern Ontario.”

Hut 8 is executing on its commitment to mining and holding Bitcoin and has a diversified business and revenue strategy to grow and protect shareholder value regardless of Bitcoin’s market direction.
