FAIRFIELD, Conn., March 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Greenidge Generation Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: GREE) (“Greenidge”) today announced the closing of two financings for approximately $108 million in gross proceeds to provide the company with additional liquidity to fund its growth in 2022.
The funding consists of approximately $81.4 million installation with a subsidiary of NYDIG, secured by certain Bitmain ANTMINER S19 J Pro equipment delivered in 2022, and a $26.5 million note guaranteed with an affiliate of B. Riley Financial, Inc. (“B. Riley”), guaranteed by the real estate of the Greenidge facility at Spartanburg, South Carolina.
“These financings are consistent with Greenidge’s established strategy of using non-dilutive capital to fund our expansion,” said Greenidge’s CEO. Jeff Kirt. “This is a transformative year for Greenidge as we plan to more than triple our data center capacity to 4.7 PE/s, with the vast majority of capacity expansion concentrated outside from the company’s home site to new York. Three months after the start of operations at our Spartanburg location, the install accounts for over 15% of Greenidge’s overall hash rate.”
“We are pleased that both financings represent the continued development of institutional relationships with our existing lenders,” Mr. Kirt said. the $81.4 million builds on our previous partnership with NYDIG and the $26.5 million the secured note is the third debt financing arranged by B. Riley affiliates for Greenidge.
