Operational and Other Updates
Towards the close of 2023, Mawson’s two Pennsylvania sites, Midland and Bellefonte had approximately 109 MW of total power capacity capable of supporting 35,650 miners for either self-mining or co-location services. The Midland facility had approximately 100 MW of total power and the capacity to support a total of approximately 32,930 miners for self-mining and/or co-location services. In December, the Company completed the deployment of its newest co-location services customer, Krypton Technologies LLC, for approximately 6 MW and 1,764 miners. The Krypton deployment follows the completed deployment of the Company’s other co-location customer Consensus Technology Group (“Consensus”) for approximately 15,876 miners or approximately 50 MW. At the end of December, the Bellefonte facility was operating at approximately 8.8 MW of capacity and continues to be used entirely for self-mining purposes.
Also, Mawson recently filed for arbitration proceedings against CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK). As disclosed in Mawson’s previous filings, Mawson has reserved all rights and believes that Mawson is owed at least $2 million from CleanSpark, Inc. This claim arises out of the obligations of CleanSpark to make payments to Mawson related to Mawson’s sale of its Georgia facility to CleanSpark, as disclosed in the Company’s previous filings. In addition, on July 13, 2022, Celsius Mining LLC and Celsius Network LLC and other related entities (collectively, “Celsius”), filed for bankruptcy relief under Chapter 11 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, Case No. 22-10964. In that matter, on November 23, 2023, Celsius Mining LLC filed an adversary proceeding, Adv. Case No. 23-01202, against Mawson, its subsidiaries Luna Squares LLC and Cosmos Infrastructure LLC, asserting various claims related to the Co-Location Agreement and Secured Promissory Note, claiming it is owed approximately $8 million under the promissory note and claiming entitlement to return of $15.33 million paid as deposit. Mawson denies that Celsius is entitled to the relief it seeks in the adversary proceeding and is considering filing counterclaims against Celsius which could be in excess of the claims asserted against it. Mawson further contests that Celsius’ case against it should proceed in the bankruptcy court at all. Mawson filed a motion to compel arbitration on January 2, 2024. Many of the related claims and disputes between Mawson and Celsius have been disclosed in more detail in Mawson’s previous filings with the SEC and in Celsius’ bankruptcy case.

Statements about hashrate capacity
Statements in the press release about hashrate capacity (including ‘installed capacity’ or ‘nameplate capacity’), will often differ from the actual or observed hashrate. These terms generally make certain assumptions about the efficiency of the ASIC miners that are in use. Some ASIC miner models will consume less power to create the same amount of hashing power than other ASIC miner models (typically more recent models are more efficient). Many ASIC miner fleets are blended fleets, including various ASIC miner models each with different efficiency ratings. Hashrate capacity figures typically assume 100% deployment of ASIC miners. Given the large numbers of computing units (often numbering in the tens of thousands), ASIC mining fleets are rarely 100% deployed and online at any one time. This can be due to a variety of factors, including ASIC miners being under maintenance, in repair workshops, in storage, in transit, or due to technical faults and breakdowns. Once deployed and online, the actual or observed hashrate can be influenced by other factors such as heat, overclocking (causing the ASIC miner to perform at levels higher than the manufacturer’s specifications), the age, and wear and tear exhibited by the ASIC miners and also by the limitations of the surrounding infrastructure, such as power outages, and MDC and transformer breakdowns. Construction and development delays are a common risk for mining data centers, for example due to weather, permitting delays, or labor and equipment shortages. Investors should consider all risk factors related to uptime when considering these figures, which are a best-case scenario.
CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Mawson cautions that statements in this press release that are not a description of historical fact are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

These forward-looking statements are based upon Mawson’s current expectations and involve assumptions that may never materialize or may prove to be incorrect. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of various risks and uncertainties, which include, without limitation, the possibility that Mawson’s need and ability to raise additional capital, the development and acceptance of digital asset networks and digital assets and their protocols and software, the reduction in incentives to mine digital assets over time, the costs associated with digital asset mining, the volatility in the value and prices of cryptocurrencies and further or new regulation of digital assets.
