FAIRFIELD, Conn., March 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenidge Generation Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: GREE) ("Greenidge" or the "Company"), a vertically integrated cryptocurrency datacenter and power generation company, today announced financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 and provided an update on actions the Company has taken to date to improve liquidity during the first quarter of 2023.

"Our results for the fourth quarter of 2022 are consistent with the estimates we released in January," said Dave Anderson, Chief Executive Officer of Greenidge. "We have effectively moved through a very challenging time in the industry by restructuring our balance sheet during the first quarter of 2023 and decreasing the risk profile of the Company. In addition to the steps taken to date, our team is evaluating opportunities designed to ensure we are in the best position to participate in the potential recovery of bitcoin, of which we have signs of in March 2023."

Fourth Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Greenidge's revenue for the fourth quarter was $16.0 million, down 55% compared to the prior year. Cryptocurrency Datacenter revenue was $12.2 million, down 64% versus the prior year, and Power and Capacity revenue was $3.8 million, up 74% compared to the prior year. Greenidge produced 683 bitcoins during the fourth quarter, compared to 609 bitcoins in the fourth quarter of the prior year. For the full year of 2022, Greenidge produced 2,731 bitcoins, which compared to 1,866 bitcoins in 2021.

As of December 31, 2022, Greenidge had approximately 24,200 active miners with an aggregate hash rate capacity of approximately 2.4 EH/s.

Net loss from continuing operations was $135.0 million for the fourth quarter as compared to a net income from continuing operations of $3.3 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year. The fourth quarter of 2022 included a $104.8 million noncash impairment charge relating to long-lived assets, $5.6 million of remeasurement adjustments associated with environmental liabilities, $0.7 million of restructuring costs and $0.1 million of expansion costs. Excluding these items, Adjusted net loss from continuing operations was $25.7 million, compared to Adjusted net income of $7.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA loss for the fourth quarter was $4.9 million compared to the prior year fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $18.2 million. The lower average bitcoin prices and higher difficulty levels on the blockchain network in 2022 as compared to 2021 more than offset the increased hash rate from the expansion of our mining capacity.

As of December 31, 2022, Greenidge had cash, short term investments and fair value of cryptocurrency holdings of $15.7 million and expects to end the first quarter of 2023 with approximately $17 million of cash.

First Quarter 2023 Actions

As previously disclosed, on January 30, 2023, Greenidge entered into a number of agreements associated with its secured debt with NYDIG, including a Membership Interest and Asset Purchase Agreement, a Senior Secured Loan Agreement and a Debt Settlement Agreement regarding its 2021 and 2022 Master Equipment Finance Agreements with NYDIG. The effect of these agreements was to transfer to NYDIG affiliates ownership of bitcoin mining equipment and certain credits and coupons that had accrued to Greenidge for previous purchases of mining equipment with a bitcoin miner manufacturer. The transfer of these assets reduced Greenidge's principal and accrued interest balance of the secured debt with NYDIG from approximately $76 million to approximately $17 million, for an aggregate debt reduction of approximately $59 million. The Senior Secured Loan Agreement allows for a voluntary prepayment of the loan in kind of approximately $10 million by transferring ownership of certain mining infrastructure assets if NYDIG enters into a binding agreement, facilitated by Greenidge, securing rights to a site for a future mining facility by April 30, 2023 (the "Post-Closing Covenant"), which may further reduce the principal balance of the debt to approximately $7 million.

Greenidge and NYDIG affiliates concurrently entered into five-year hosting agreements, whereby Greenidge agreed to host, power and provide technical support services, and other related services, to NYDIG affiliates' mining equipment at Greenidge facilities. The terms of such arrangements require NYDIG affiliates to pay a hosting fee that covers the cost of power and direct costs associated with management of the mining facilities, as well as a gross profit-sharing arrangement.

Also, as disclosed, on January 30, 2023, Greenidge entered into an amendment (the "Amendment") to its amended and restated bridge promissory note in favor of B. Riley (the "Promissory Note") regarding approximately $10.6 million of principal and accrued interest. The Amendment modified the payment dates and principal and interest payment amounts, requiring no principal or interest payments until June 2023 and monthly payments thereafter through November 2023. Under the Amendment, Greenidge's mandatory monthly debt repayments from proceeds of sales under the ATM Agreement or the equity purchase agreement have been reduced to 15% of the net proceeds, which significantly improves the Company's ability to raise additional liquidity. In addition, Greenidge would potentially reduce its monthly principal amortization payments from approximately $1.5 million to $400,000 per month, if it were to pay at least $6 million of principal debt to B. Riley prior to June 20, 2023. Greenidge is actively pursuing the sale of excess real estate that is not needed for the mining operations at its South Carolina property. Under the terms of the Promissory Note, if all or a portion of the South Carolina property is sold, the net proceeds from the sale are required to be used to repay the Promissory Note.

Under the terms of the Amendment, each of B. Riley and an affiliate of Atlas Holdings LLC purchased $1 million of Greenidge's class A common stock under the ATM Agreement.  Greenidge made a $1.9 million partial payment of the Promissory Note from the net proceeds received from the B. Riley and Atlas Holdings LLC's affiliate purchases. In total, Greenidge repaid $2.8 million of the Promissory Note during the first quarter of 2023 when including mandatory repayments associated with proceeds from sales under the ATM Agreement during the first quarter of 2023, reducing the balance of the Promissory Note to $7.8 million.

Additionally, in January 2023, Greenidge completed the sale of an end-user software that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Support.com, marketed as a malware protection and removal software product for net proceeds of approximately $2.6 million. As previously disclosed, Greenidge is considering various alternatives in connection with the remainder of Support.com, including the disposition of assets and other transactions. Greenidge now reports the results of Support.com as discontinued operations, which requires prior periods to be restated to be comparable. 

As part of Greenidge's plans to deploy its remaining approximate 10,000 owned miners following the execution of the debt restructuring with NYDIG, Greenidge executed a hosting agreement with Conifex Timber Inc. ("Conifex"), whereby Conifex will host 750 miners on behalf of Greenidge. The hosting agreement includes consideration for a potential expansion of 25MW of mining capacity using renewable energy.
