FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Form 8-K and other reports filed by Registrant from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (collectively, the “Filings”) contain or may contain forward-looking statements and information that are based upon beliefs of, and information currently available to, Registrant’s management as well as estimates and assumptions made by Registrant’s management. When used in the Filings the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “future,” “intend,” “plan” or the negative of these terms and similar expressions as they relate to Registrant or Registrant’s management identify forward-looking statements. S2uch statements reflect the current view of Registrant with respect to future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors relating to Registrant’s industry, Registrant’s operations and results of operations and any businesses that may be acquired by Registrant. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ significantly from those anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended or planned.

 

Although Registrant believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, Registrant cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States, Registrant does not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results.

 

ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT

 

On August 28, 2019, Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with SelectGreen Blockchain Ltd, a British Columbia corporation (“Seller”) to acquire 6,000 S-9 Bitmain 13.5 TH/s Bitcoin Antminers (“Antminer S9 miners”). The transaction, which is scheduled to close upon completion of the review of the Listing of Additional Shares application filed with Nasdaq with regard to the transaction, will be an all-stock private placement whereby the Company will issue 2,335,000 unregistered Common Stock shares at a price above the current market in a transaction exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Upon consummation of the transaction, the Company will have 8,720,405 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.

 

The Miners will be placed into service in a Co-Location hosting facility with electricity costs of $0.035 per KwH and $0.02 per KwH for the all-in hosting management. The combined cost of $0.055 per KwH equates to a breakeven of approximately $5,050 per Bitcoin resulting in a 100% increase in gross profit from breakeven for each Bitcoin earned from mining at a price of $10,000/BTC.
