First Quarter 2022 Update

Greenidge anticipates having approximately 19,400 miners at its datacenters in New York and South Carolina as of March 31, 2022 with approximately 1.6 EH/s of capacity.

In the twelve months ended March 31, 2022, Greenidge has taken delivery of approximately 11,800 miners, of which 97% arrived as scheduled, with only approximately 370 delayed due primarily to freight vendor performance and a brief Covid-related lockdown in Malaysia during 2021.

The application was deemed complete by the Department in September 2021 and this second extension is to June 30, 2022. Greenidge continues to operate in New York without interruption during this period and intends to continue to work constructively with the Department to finalize a permit renewal. Greenidge notes that it is not uncommon for renewal applicants to operate for extended periods of time, sometimes years, prior to finalizing a permit renewal and additional future extensions may be requested.
