VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: DMGI) (DMGGF:OTC US) (FRANKFURT:6AX) (“DMG” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated blockchain and cryptocurrency technology company, is pleased to report its Q1 2022 filings for the quarter ended December 31, 2021 (all financial references are in Canadian Dollars unless specified otherwise) and announces Quarterly Financial Results and Corporate Update on March 30, 2022 at 4:30 PM ET.
Financial Summary for the Quarter ended December 31, 2021
DMG’s first quarter of its 2021-2 financial year had the Company’s strongest results ever. The Company generated record revenues of $14.2 million, up by 639% from its Q1 previous quarter ending December 31, 2020. This was mainly due to the arrival and installation of ordered crypto miners which significantly increased the Company’s hashrate and resulting revenues. Gross margin and net income were $11.5 million and $5.9 million up over 2,000% and 826%, respectively compared to Q1 2021.
The substantial increase in revenues also resulted in the Company’s strongest operating income to date at $5.3 million for the quarter as compared to a loss of $0.55 million in the Q1 2020. At December 31, 2021, the Company held $749,174 in cash and over $26 million in digital assets (primarily Bitcoin) for total cash and cash equivalent liquidity of $27 million.
DMG’s BTC production was the highest of any quarter due to the arrival of new miners in late Q4 2021. Through the first quarter, DMG achieved monthly BTC rewards production numbers of 64.72 BTC, 49.82 BTC and 66.71 BTC through October, November and December.
“A tremendous amount of work has gone in by the entire team to reach these results. For the first time the Company is posting strong financial gains and we believe this will continue through many more quarters due to our large investment in new mining equipment. The whole team is focused on operational excellence for this new fleet of servers as well as working hard to launch several new software solutions throughout the year,” said Sheldon Bennett, Chief Executive Officer.
With the filing of DMG’s first quarter results, the Management Cease Trade Order enacted January 31, 2022 has been lifted as of March 24, 2022.
Today the Company also announces that it will host a conference call to review fourth quarter 2021 and first quarter 2022 financial results and provide a corporate update on Wednesday, March 30, 2022, at 4:30 pm ET.
