"We shut down our underperforming Drumheller site, retired inefficient miners, initiated the relocation of our fleet from hosted to owned facilities, and began the implementation of our proprietary energy curtailment software across our sites."

"We also made significant progress in positioning our business for near-term growth. In our Managed Services segment, we signed a four-year agreement with Ionic Digital and began managing the construction and operations of its West Texas facilities. Shortly after the close of the quarter, we finalized commercial agreements for our new AI vertical under a GPU-as-a-service model, including a customer agreement which provides for fixed infrastructure payments plus revenue sharing. We expect to begin generating revenue in the second half of the year at a forecasted annual rate of approximately $20 million."

"Looking ahead, we remain intently focused on scaling our Bitcoin mining business and bringing our pipeline to fruition. We believe the differentiated approach we have taken to secure these opportunities despite the growing shortage of load interconnection assets will allow us to build a portfolio that is highly competitive not only in mining but also in the broader energy infrastructure sector. With our commitment to disciplined capital allocation, focus on non-dilutive sources of funding, and exceptional team and board, we are more confident than ever that our strategy will deliver strong shareholder returns for decades to come."
