DMG Blockchain Solutions Reports Second Quarter 2024 Results Ending March 31, 2024


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: DMGI) (OTCQB US: DMGGF) (FRANKFURT: 6AX) ("DMG"), a vertically integrated blockchain and data center technology company, today announces its fiscal second quarter 2024 financial results. All financial references are in Canadian Dollars unless specified otherwise.

Q2 2024 Financial Results Highlights

Sheldon Bennett, DMG Blockchain Solutions' Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased with our robust performance this quarter, achieving a 3% sequential revenue increase to $10.0M and maintaining profitability for the second consecutive quarter. Our strategic investments in both our Core and Core+ strategies are delivering promising results. Systemic Trust is paving the way for financial institutions to transact bitcoin in a carbon-neutral manner, while the deployment of our Bitmain T21 miners positions us to achieve 1.7 EH/s by the end of June with further expansion planned. Additionally, our strong cash flow from operations of $4.5M and a solid balance sheet with $43.6M in cash and digital currency underscore our execution."

Second Quarter 2024 Financial Results Review

Revenue for the second fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2024 was $10.0 million versus $7.6 million in the prior year period, an increase of 31%, primarily due to the increase in digital currency mining revenues as a result of bitcoin price increasing 133% over the year-ago period to an average of $71,851 in the March quarter. This increase was partially offset by a 93% increase in Bitcoin network difficulty that lowered DMG's bitcoin generation per EH/s by 47% from the same period last year. In addition, revenue was also partially offset by a loss in net pool revenue of $1.3 million.

Income before other items for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was -$1.8 million versus -$4.6 million in the prior year period.

Operating and maintenance costs for the three months ended March 31, 2024 were $5.3 million as compared to $4.6 million in the same quarter in the prior year. The increase is attributed to utility expenses, driven by the expansion of digital currency mining operations and the addition of new miners.

Net income for the three months ending March 31, 2024 was $2 thousand versus a loss of $3.8 million in the prior year period. The improvement in net income was driven primarily by an increase in revenue of $10.0 million versus $7.6 million in the prior year period, unrealized revaluation gain on digital currency, which was a gain of $1.0 million versus zero in the prior year period as well as realized gain on sale of digital currency of $1.1 million versus $0.5 million in the year-ago period. It was also driven by lower depreciation, which was $3.8 million versus $5.9 million in the prior year period. These were partially offset by operating and maintenance costs, which increased by $0.7 million and general and administrative expenses which increased by $1.1 million over the prior year.

Earnings per share for the second fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2024 was $0.00 versus -$0.02 in the prior year period.

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had cash of $1.6 million, digital currency of $42.0 million and total assets of $118.4 million. For more details, please refer to the Company's filings.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This news release contains forward-looking information or statements based on current expectations. Forward-looking statements contained in this news release include statements regarding DMG's strategies and plans, the expected increase in realized hashrate, deploying Bitmain T21 miners to reach 1.7 EH/s by June 2024, targeting 2 EH/s and beyond, hosting the conference call, the deployment of new capacity, the expected arrival of new miners, the expected timelines, the opportunity and plans to monetize bitcoin transactions, the continued investment in Bitcoin network software infrastructure and applications, developing and executing on the Company's products and services, increasing self-mining, efforts to improve the operation of its mining fleet, the launch of products and services, events, courses of action, and the potential of the Company's technology and operations, among others, are all forward-looking information.

Future changes in the Bitcoin network-wide mining difficulty rate or Bitcoin hash rate may materially affect the future performance of DMG's production of bitcoin, and future operating results could also be materially affected by the price of bitcoin and an increase in hash rate mining difficulty.

Forward-looking statements consist of statements that are not purely historical, including any statements regarding beliefs, plans, expectations, or intentions regarding the future. Such information can generally be identified by the use of forwarding-looking wording such as "may", "expect", "estimate", "anticipate", "intend", "believe" and "continue" or the negative thereof or similar variations. The reader is cautioned that assumptions used in the preparation of any forward-looking information may prove to be incorrect. Events or circumstances may cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted, as a result of numerous known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, including but not limited to, market and other conditions, volatility in the trading price of the common shares of the Company, business, economic and capital market conditions; the ability to manage operating expenses, which may adversely affect the Company's financial condition; the ability to remain competitive as other better financed competitors develop and release competitive products; regulatory uncertainties; access to equipment; market conditions and the demand and pricing for products; the demand and pricing of bitcoins; security threats, including a loss/theft of DMG's bitcoins; DMG's relationships with its customers, distributors and business partners; the inability to add more power to DMG's facilities; DMG's ability to successfully define, design and release new products in a timely manner that meet customers' needs; the ability to attract, retain and motivate qualified personnel; competition in the industry; the impact of technology changes on the products and industry; failure to develop new and innovative products; the ability to successfully maintain and enforce our intellectual property rights and defend third-party claims of infringement of their intellectual property rights; the impact of intellectual property litigation that could materially and adversely affect the business; the ability to manage working capital; and the dependence on key personnel. DMG may not actually achieve its plans, projections, or expectations. Such statements and information are based on numerous assumptions regarding present and future business strategies and the environment in which the Company will operate in the future, including the demand for its products, the ability to successfully develop software, that there will be no regulation or law that will prevent the Company from operating its business, anticipated costs, the ability to secure sufficient capital to complete its business plans, the ability to achieve goals and the price of bitcoin. Given these risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. The securities of DMG are considered highly speculative due to the nature of DMG's business. For further information concerning these and other risks and uncertainties, refer to the Company's filings on www.sedarplus.ca. In addition, DMG's past financial performance may not be a reliable indicator of future performance.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include, failure to obtain regulatory approval, the continued availability of capital and financing, equipment failures, lack of supply of equipment, power and infrastructure, failure to obtain any permits required to operate the business, the impact of technology changes on the industry, the impact of viruses and diseases on the Company's ability to operate, secure equipment, and hire personnel, competition, security threats including stolen bitcoins from DMG or its customers, consumer sentiment towards DMG's products, services and blockchain technology generally, failure to develop new and innovative products, litigation, adverse weather or climate events, increase in operating costs, increase in equipment and labor costs, equipment failures, decrease in the price of Bitcoin, failure of counterparties to perform their contractual obligations, government regulations, loss of key employees and consultants, and general economic, market or business conditions.
