Bitfarms Ltd. (“Bitfarms” or the “Company”)(NASDAQ: BITF // TSXV: BITF), a global Bitcoin self-mining company, has acquired land and a building in Sherbrooke, Québec. This new location, known as Garlock, is expected to have a power capacity of 18 megawatts (MW) and will replace the existing de la Pointe facility, which will eventually be retired as previously announced in the Company’s press release dated September 7, 2021. Farms in development increases from three to four.

“When completed, total planned capacity of our three Sherbrooke farms, which also include Leger and The Bunker, will fully utilize Hydro-Sherbrooke’s contracted power of 96 MW. The new farm is part of our commitment with the City of Sherbrooke to re-locate production and phase out our de la Pointe facility,” said Geoff Morphy, President and COO of Bitfarms. “As we have done with our other locations, Garlock will be outfitted with the latest in sound reduction and monitoring technology. We expect a smooth transition in production as we work to bring the farm fully online in the first quarter of 2023, at which point operations at the de la Pointe facility will be closed and the facility will be sold.”

The total purchase price of the Garlock location consists of cash in the amount of C$2.25 million and 25,000 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of Bitfarms at a price of US$3.47 (CAD$4.43) for two years from the date of issuance.

The new facility will benefit from Bitfarms’ existing cost-effective contracts that supply green hydro power at an average cost of US four cents per kilowatt hour.
