Argo Blockchain PLC Announces Strategy/Corporate/Operations Update

October update

LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / October 31, 2022 / Argo Blockchain plc, a global leader in cryptocurrency mining (LSE:ARB)(NASDAQ:ARBK), makes the following announcement regarding certain strategic actions announced on October 7, 2022.

As previously disclosed, the company signed a non-binding LOI with a strategic investor to raise approximately £24 million ($27 million) via the subscription of ordinary shares. The Company no longer believes that this subscription will be completed under the previously announced terms. Argo continues to explore other funding opportunities.

The company has also taken steps to further maximize liquidity and preserve cash. The company sold 3,843 new Bitmain S19J Pro machines, representing ~384 PH/s of total hashrate capacity, for cash of ~£4.8M ($5.6M). These machines are the last batch of the original Bitmain order scheduled for installation in October 2022. As a result, the company’s total hash rate capacity remains at 2.5 EH/s.

No assurance of final agreements

While Argo explores other financing opportunities, there can be no assurance that any definitive agreements will be signed or that any transactions will be completed. Should Argo not be successful in completing additional financing, Argo will be cash-flow negative in the short term and will have to curtail or cease operations. The Company endeavors to complete such financing transactions to provide the Company with working capital sufficient for its current needs, i.e. for at least the next twelve months from the date of this announcement.
