Marathon is a digital asset technology company that mines cryptocurrencies with a focus on the blockchain ecosystem and the generation of digital assets in U.S. The Company was formerly known as “Marathon Patent Group, Inc.” and changed its name to “Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc.” on March 1, 2021.
In October 2020, Marathon announced the formation of a new joint venture with Beowulf Energy LLC (“Beowulf”), purportedly focused on delivering low-cost power to Marathon’s Bitcoin mining operations (the “Beowulf Joint Venture”). In connection with that joint venture, Marathon entered into a series of agreements with multiple parties to design and build a data center in Hardin, Montana (the “Hardin Facility”), issuing 6 million shares of its common stock to the parties of those agreements.
According to the complaint, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (i) the Beowulf Joint Venture, as it related to the Hardin Facility, implicated potential regulatory violations, including U.S. securities law violations; (ii) as a result, the Beowulf Joint Venture subjected Marathon to a heightened risk of regulatory scrutiny; (iii) the foregoing was reasonably likely to have a material negative impact on the Company’s business and commercial prospects; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On November 15, 2021, Marathon disclosed that “the Company and certain of its executives received a subpoena to produce documents and communications concerning the Hardin, Montana data center facility” and advised that the SEC may be investigating whether or not there may have been any violations of the federal securities laws.
On this news, Marathon’s stock price fell $20.52 per share, or 27.03%, to close at $55.40 per share on November 15, 2021.
