HANGZHOU, China, Oct. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ebang International Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: EBON, the “Company,” “we” or “our”), a global application-specific integrated circuit (“ASIC”) chip design company and a manufacturer of high-performance Bitcoin mining machines, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first six months of fiscal year 2021.

Operational and Financial Highlights for the First Six Months of Fiscal Year 2021

Total computing power sold in the first six months of 2021 was 0.80 million Thash/s, representing a period-over-period increase of 220.00% from 0.25 million Thash/s in the same period of 2020.

Total net revenues in the first six months of 2021 were US$18.30 million, representing a 65.69% period-over-period increase from US$11.04 million in the same period of 2020.

Gross profit in the first six months of 2021 was US$5.64 million compared to the gross loss of US$0.97 million in the same period of 2020.

Net loss in the first six months of 2021 was US$4.26 million compared to US$6.96 million in the same period of 2020.
  
Mr. Dong Hu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “Over the past few years, the Company has been focusing on the research and development and sales of Bitcoin mining machines. However, this business is susceptible to the impact of macro and micro environments such as global political and regulatory attitude toward cryptocurrency in general, economic competitions, chip production capacity and supply, and Bitcoin price fluctuations. To achieve long-term stable growth, the company plans to vigorously develop financial technology (FinTech) business, while steadily carry out research and development as well as sales business of mining machines of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin and Dogecoin. The Company plans to gradually launch software-as-a-service (SaaS) businesses on some of its platforms, aiming to provide a full set of FinTech solutions to industry players who lack technical support and security. The Company has gradually increased the initial investment in this business, including but not limited to talent recruitment, equipment purchase, software development, and customer acquisition, which business we expect to bring continuous and stable revenue to the Company. The mining farm business includes the Company’s original mining machine hosting business and the newly derived self-mining business. Up to now, the Company has completed the establishment of the business team and started the preparatory work for the construction of North American and European mining farms in June 2021. The self-mining business can well offset the negative impact of the plummeting Bitcoin price on the sales of mining machines, thereby further ensuring the Company’s long-term stable and healthy development.” 

Unaudited Financial Results for the First Six Months of Fiscal Year 2021

Total net revenues in the first six months of 2021 were US$18.30 million, representing a 65.69% period-over-period increase from US$11.04 million in the same period of 2020. The period-over-period increase in total net revenues were mainly due to the increase of Bitcoin price in the first six months of 2021, which increase the expected returns on Bitcoin related activities such as mining, and in turn resulted in a much higher demand on our Bitcoin mining machines.

Cost of revenues in the first six months of 2021 was US$12.66 million compared to US$12.01 million in the same period of 2020. The cost of revenues remained stable mainly due to the combined impact of the increase in the Company’s sales and the lower inventory cost related to the utilization of the impaired inventories in our production.

Gross profit in the first six months of 2021 was US$5.64 million compared to the gross loss of US$0.97 million in the same period of 2020.

Total operating expenses in the first six months of 2021 were US$10.58 million compared to US$7.71 million in the same period of 2020.

  • Selling expenses in the first six months of 2021 maintain stable with the amount of US$0.59 million compared to US$0.45 million in the same period of 2020.
  • General and administrative expenses in the first six months of 2021 were US$9.99 million compared to US$7.26 million in the same period of 2020. The period-over-period increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly caused by an increase in amortization of intangible asset for the exclusive Authorization of Patent Technology (AsicBoost) in Korea.

Loss from operations in the first six months of 2021 was US$4.95 million compared to US$8.68 million in the same period of 2020.

Other income in the first six months of 2021 was US$0.17 million compared to US$0.02 million in the same period of 2020. The period-over-period increase in other income was mainly caused by the increase in investment income from short term investment in the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Government grants in the first six months of 2021 were US$0.02 million compared to US$2.54 million in the same period of 2020. The period-over-period decrease in government grants was mainly caused by the decrease of tax rewards from the Chinese government.

Other expense in the first six months of 2021 was US$1.15 million compared to US$0.02 million in the same period of 2020. The period-over-period increase in other expense was mainly caused by the loss on fair value changes from short term investment in the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Net loss in the first six months of 2021 was US$4.26 million compared to US$6.96 million in the same period of 2020.

Net loss attributable to Ebang International Holdings Inc. in the first six months of 2021 was US$3.58 million compared to US$6.21 million in the same period of 2020.

Basic and diluted net loss per shares in the first six months of 2021 were both US$0.02 compared to US$0.06 in the same period of 2020.
