Financial Summary for the Quarter ended March 31, 2022
DMG’s second quarter of its 2022 financial year showed continued strength despite headwinds of a simultaneous decline in bitcoin pricing and increase in the network hash rate. The Company generated revenue of $11.9 million, up 377% year over year and down 17% quarter over quarter. This sequential decline was due mainly to a bitcoin price decline of 26% (quarter average vs prior quarter average) to $52,374 combined with an increase in the Bitcoin network hashrate of 20% (quarter average vs prior quarter average) to 194.0 EH/s partly offset by a 40% increase in the Company’s average hash rate to 491 PH/s (quarter ending hashrate was 595 PH/s). This also resulted in a decline in gross margin percentage to 73% from 81% the prior quarter. For the six-month financial period through March 31, 2022, gross profit and net income were $20.2 million and $5.1 million, respectively.
The substantial year over year increase in six-month period revenue also resulted in the Company’s strongest operating income to date of $6.8 million as compared to a loss of $2.1 million in the prior year period. As of March 31, 2022, the Company held $6.3 million in cash and $21.8 million in digital assets (primarily bitcoin) for total cash and cash equivalent liquidity of $28.1 million.
DMG’s BTC mining production was the highest of any quarter due to the arrival of new miners. DMG achieved monthly BTC rewards production numbers of 65, 59 and 72 BTC in January, February and March, respectively, for a total of 196 BTC in the quarter, an increase of 7% quarter over quarter.
“We are excited about our opportunity in calendar 2022; the Company continues toward its execution goals for its Core and Core+ strategies: powering 1-exahash of Bitcoin self-mining, launching Terra Pool to enable industrial miners beyond its charter members that seek to be on a 100% renewable energy pool, and delivering software products that enable the monetization of bitcoin transactions that meet the highest levels of regulatory compliance,” said Sheldon Bennett, Chief Executive Officer.
