Revenues Increase 75% in Third Quarter

Argo, a UK-based provider of enterprise scale cryptocurrency mining services (LSE: ARB), is pleased to provide the following operational update for the third quarter ended 30th September 2019:

The Company generated revenues of £3.63m from its cryptocurrency mining operations in Q3, a 75% increase from Q2 2019. These assets were mined at a mining margin of approximately 73%, which the Company believes to be one of the highest efficiency rates in the market.

This margin was achieved despite a rise in mining difficulty and network hash rates, as well as a recent softening in the Bitcoin price.

Our continuing excellent mining efficiency is a function of several factors including:

·     highly competitive prices at which we procure clean electricity under long-term contracts

·     a low operating cost base

·     our expertise in configuring and running our hardware infrastructure in a way that optimizes returns from mining

·     maintaining up-to-date and dedicated data centres

·     a team of experts in the crypto industry making timely hardware decisions

The total number of machines in production stands at 6,000 and the Company is on track to install approximately 6,000 more machines, currently on order, before the end of the year.                 

Mike Edwards, executive chairman of Argo, said: "We are delighted with the mining results in Q3 which, together with strong cash management, have helped us to maintain a robust balance sheet. Our investment in the most advanced mining hardware on the market continues to provide us with a competitive edge even as mining conditions become more challenging. During the third quarter the Company adopted a policy to exchange its mined Bitcoins into fiat currency on a regular basis to avoid additional exposure to Bitcoin pricing. We remain focussed on our revenue and bottom line, while executing our growth strategy to become the world's largest publicly listed miner next year."
