The registrant’s revenue increased to approximately $32.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, representing an increase of $19.6 million compared to approximately $13.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The registrant’s income from operations was approximately $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, a decrease of $0.2 million compared to income from operations of approximately $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

The increase in revenue from the three months ended March 31, 2022, was due to an increase in revenue from lending and trading activities of approximately $12.7 million, an increase in the Company’s cryptocurrency mining operations of $3.4 million, and an increase in revenue from hotel operations of $2.7 million. The company acquired the hotel assets in December 2021.

 

The registrant’s operating expenses increased to approximately $21.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, representing an increase of $14.4 million compared to approximately $6.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

The increase in operating expenses from the three months ended March 31, 2022, was due to the following:

    

· Selling and marketing expenses were $6.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, an increase of $5.2 million, or 422%. The increase was the result of higher marketing costs related to an advertising sponsorship agreement as well as increases in sales and marketing personnel, consultants primarily at the Company’s Ault Alliance business segment. The increase is also attributable to costs incurred at the Company’s TurnOnGreen business segment to grow the selling and marketing infrastructure related to its electric vehicle charger products.

 

· General and administrative expenses were $13.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $5.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, an increase of $8.6 million, or 169%. General and administrative expenses increased from the comparative prior period, mainly due to non-cash stock compensation costs of $2.6 million, general and administrative costs of $1.8 million from the Company’s hotel operations, which were acquired in December 2021, increased costs related to the Michigan data center, and higher legal expense, salaries and audit fees.

 

 

 

Interest expense was $29.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in interest expense relates to the $66.0 million of secured promissory notes issued in December 2021, which were fully paid in March 2022. Interest expense from these notes included the amortization of debt discount of $26.3 million from the issuance of warrants, a non-cash charge, and original issue discount, in connection with these secured promissory notes.

 

The registrant’s net loss available to common stockholders was approximately $28.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, representing an decline of $30.8 million, compared to net income available to common stockholders of approximately $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
