Cormint delivered a strong result for the April YTD period leading into the halving as favorable trends in hashprice combined with strong execution in power strategy to deliver a gross margin of 83%. The company achieved an all-in power price of 1.8c kWh with uptime of 90%. Reflecting typical seasonal trends, Cormint expects slightly higher power prices this summer followed by weaker prices in Q4. The company remains optimistic to beat its projected annual power price of 2.8c kWh.  

Current hashrate stands at ~1.5EH across our proprietary immersion and air cooled solutions. Our construction team is now focused on deploying Phases 4 and 5 which will result in Cormint fully utilizing its 130MW interconnection at Fort Stockton by Q4 2024, and operating a nameplate fleet of at least 3 EH/s. The company has established an overseas manufacturing partnership to rapidly deploy our air-cooled solution at scale. We will deploy at least 100 MW this year with a stretch goal of 150 MW across 2 sites. We seek to have 500 MW under management by 2026 and have built our organization to be capable of deploying a high quality mining data center product at an industry leading price. 

From a capital perspective, we exited April with 733 Bitcoin on the balance sheet, significant cash reserves, and a sophisticated hedging program that is outperforming our expectations.  Given our balance sheet strength, we are fully funded to scale to 130MW at Fort Stockton, and have ample liquid assets to pursue acquisitions.  As always, we remain focused on returns on capital deployed to ensure that any investment will exceed our cost of capital in all conceivable market conditions.
