FAIRFIELD, Conn., April 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenidge Generation Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: GREE) ("Greenidge"), a vertically integrated cryptocurrency datacenter and power generation company, today announced selected preliminary financial and operating results for the first quarter of 2022.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, Greenidge expects to report revenues of approximately $38 million, net income (loss) in a range of breakeven to $(2) million, and Adjusted EBITDA1 in a range of $8 million to $10 million. Cryptocurrency mining revenue is expected to be approximately $23 million, Power and capacity revenue is expected to be approximately $6 million, and Services and other revenue is expected to be approximately $8 million for the first quarter of 2022. Greenidge produced approximately 561 bitcoin during the first quarter of 2022 and had approximately 19,400 miners with approximately 1.6 EH/s of combined capacity as of March 31, 2022. Greenidge expects Adjusted EBITDA1 for the twelve months ended March 31, 2022 in a range of $57 million to $59 million.

Greenidge ended the quarter with approximately $97 million of cash and fair market value of cryptocurrency holdings, of which, less than $2 million was cryptocurrency holdings. Greenidge had approximately $25 million in undrawn financing commitments, bringing Greenidge's total liquidity to approximately $122 million at March 31, 2022. In addition, Greenidge has approximately $135 million of cash on deposit with Bitmain.

As of March 31, 2022, Greenidge had approximately 29,800 miners on order with Bitmain scheduled for delivery in 2022 representing approximately 3.1 EH/s in additional mining capacity. Pro forma mining capacity following delivery of this order is approximately 4.7 EH/s.

Greenidge has received and deployed all miners scheduled for arrival in the first quarter of 2022 and, as previously announced, 97% of miner deliveries arrived as scheduled for the twelve months ended March 31, 2022. At the end of the first quarter, approximately 17% of Greenidge's hash rate capacity was deployed in its Spartanburg, SC facility – less than four months after acquiring the site.

Title V Air Permit Commentary

As previously disclosed, in late March, at the request of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (the "Department"), Greenidge agreed to extend, for a second time, the deadline for the Department to complete its review of the renewal application for the Title V Air Permit at the company's New York facility. The application was deemed complete by the Department in September 2021 and this second extension is to June 30, 2022.

Greenidge continues to operate its New York facility without interruption during this period, in full compliance with its air and water permits pursuant to New York's nation-leading environmental standards. Greenidge intends to continue to work constructively with the Department to finalize a permit renewal and notes that it is not uncommon for renewal applicants to operate for extended periods of time, in some cases years, prior to finalizing a permit renewal and additional future extensions may be requested.

Greenidge also notes that even when operating at maximum capacity, its natural gas-powered facility in New York represents approximately 0.2% of the state's greenhouse gas ("GHG") emissions reduction goal for 2030, the first year state-wide GHG emissions limits take effect. Greenidge believes the renewal of this five-year permit poses no impediment to New York meeting its statewide GHG emissions reduction targets for 2030 or beyond.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

From time to time Greenidge utilizes certain financial measures that are not prepared or calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP to assess financial performance and profitability. "EBITDA" is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization. "Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as EBITDA adjusted for stock-based compensation and other special items determined by management, including, but not limited to, costs associated with the merger with Support.com, costs of becoming a public company (which included the costs of a corporate reorganization from an LLC, public registration of shares and associated costs), business expansion costs, impairment of goodwill and remeasurement of environmental liability. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are "non-GAAP financial measures." These non-GAAP financial measures are a supplement to and not a substitute for or superior to, the Company's results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Greenidge believes that the use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial measures with those of comparable companies, which may present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. However, you should be aware that when evaluating EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, Greenidge may incur future expenses similar to those excluded when calculating these measures. In addition, Greenidge's presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that its future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Greenidge's computation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures computed by other companies, because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same fashion.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Greenidge compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA on a supplemental basis. You should review the reconciliation of net loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA below and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Greenidge's business.
