Loan Repayment

On March 2, 2022, the Company announced the closing of a $10 million committed, collateralized revolving credit facility (the “Loan Facility”). The Loan Facility provided Digihost with non-dilutive liquidity options to assist in the financing of its growth strategy.

“The Company made a commitment to its shareholders to conservatively manage its balance sheet and to pay off its outstanding debt by the end of 2022. We are pleased to announce the acceleration of this timeline in light of current market volatility”, commented Michel Amar, Chairman and CEO of Digihost. “Current market conditions are challenging but given the Company’s existing cash and digital holdings, combined with low overhead, we are able to remain on solid footing while still executing on our strategy of gaining access to low-cost energy”.
