On Track to Achieve 1.26 EH/s by June 30th; Reiterates 3EH/s Ramp into the Fourth Quarter
ALBANY, N.Y., April 14, 2022 — Soluna Holdings, Inc. (“SHI” or the “Company”), (NASDAQ: SLNH), the parent company of Soluna Computing, Inc. (“SCI”), a developer of green data centers for cryptocurrency mining and other intensive computing, today announced the release of its March site-level financials.
Michael Toporek, CEO of Soluna Holdings stated, “Our operating team continues to execute. Edith, our first facility, in 22 months has now returned about 3x the capital we invested. Our greenfield Sophie facility increased its hashrate over 70% in March. I am looking forward to seeing its April results as our margins there should expand and get closer to target levels. Companywide, we hit about 1 EH and are working on a way to hit our second quarter 1.26 EH target early. It’s great to see our Company’s operating momentum.”
Toporek Continued, “The recently completed sale of the instruments business, a great business with a bright future, allows us to redeploy that capital in our computing business at 20% to 30% returns on invested capital. Additionally, having one clear line of business makes it simpler for investors to understand and value our company, especially compared to our public crypto mining peer group.”
