The largest publicly traded bitcoin miner by hashrate, Core Scientific (CORZ), said its fiscal 2021 revenue rose 803% to $544.5 million, beating analyst estimates of $507.1 million, according to FactSet.
- The miners’ fiscal year adjusted earnings per share (diluted) came in at $0.32, which may not compare to consensus analyst estimate of $0.44, according to FactSet. The company became public in January through a merger with SPAC Power & Digital Infrastructure Acquisition.
- “Across our business we are executing our plans effectively and remain well positioned to continue expanding our capacity and creating shareholder value,” said CEO Mike Levitt in a statement.
- The miner stuck to its 2022 hashrate guidance to 40 EH/s and 42 EH/s. On March 7, Core said it sees hashrate reaching 40 EH/s-42 EH/s by the end of this year, which will be distributed approximately evenly between its self-mining and hosting segments.
- Shares rose almost 3% to $8.95 in post-market trading on Tuesday as bitcoin prices rose 1.2%. Core Scientific shares are down about 19% this year.
- Core Scientific is scheduled to host an earnings call with analysts at 4:30 p.m. ET.
