Atlanta, Georgia and Sydney Australia —September 20, 2022 — Mawson Infrastructure Group Inc. (NASDAQ:MIGI) (“Mawson” or the “Company”), a digital infrastructure provider, announces unaudited Bitcoin production and operational update for August 2022.
“Since July we have continued to adapt our business model to reflect lower Bitcoin prices and higher energy costs in the USA. Our direct responses included the activation of our Energy Market Program and our focus on high margin mining opportunities and jurisdictions. Our priority continues to be on the build out of high quality, low cost per MW deployed data centers in the USA” said James Manning, CEO.
August Bitcoin Self-Mining, Energy Market Program & Hosting Co-location Update:
• Equivalent total Bitcoin Production: 170
• Equivalent BTC production from Energy Market Program: 80 (based on average price of Bitcoin in August of $22,366)
• Self-Mined Bitcoin produced: 90
• Self-Mining Installed Capacity: 1.7 Exahash
• Year to date mined Bitcoin: 1129

Sale of Georgia assets:
As announced to the market on September 9, 2022, Mawson has signed definitive agreements for the sale of certain assets at its Sandersville, Georgia Bitcoin Mining facility to CleanSpark Inc (NASDAQ:CLSK) for up to $42.5 Million, with the transaction anticipated to close in early October, 2022. As a result of this sale the Company will relocate Bitcoin miners from Georgia to Pennsylvania in the fourth quarter of 2022, enabling Mawson to take advantage of significantly lower energy prices and additional Energy Market Program revenue opportunities. This relocation enables the Company to focus on its largest scale, and highest margin operations, whilst simultaneously reducing overall balance sheet leverage, putting the Company in a strong position to navigate the current environment and the upcoming halving which is anticipated in mid 2024.
Pennsylvania Expansion Update:
In addition to reducing debt, Mawson intends to use part of the proceeds of sale of the Georgia assets to continue the development and expansion of its Pennsylvania Bitcoin Mining facilities. The Company’s Pennsylvania facilities have a combined energy capacity of 220 megawatts, which can accommodate approximately 7.3 Exahash of Bitcoin Mining operations.¹

¹Assumes all equipment deployed and 100% online, plus the construction of all contracted sites on time, actual results are likely to vary in a negative manner. Construction delays are common and it is rare for all equipment to be deployed and 100% online, however accurate historical downtime averages are difficult to calculate and also may not provide an accurate picture due to differences moving forward. Investors should consider all risk factors related to uptime when considering these figures, which are a best case scenario.
