Partial Loan payoff

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

The Company is pleased to announce that as of the date hereof, it has paid back approximately $4 million of the fully drawn facility and intends to pay the residual amount owed under the Loan Facility throughout the remainder of 2022.

Normal Course Issuer Bid Program

During May 2022, Digihost announced that it had received approval to undertake, at the Company’s discretion, a normal course issuer bid program (“NCIB”) to purchase up to 1,219,762 of its subordinate voting shares for cancellation. The NCIB was commenced due to the fact that, from time to time, the Company may consider that the market price of its subordinate voting shares do not accurately reflect the underlying value of the Company’s business.

ATM Program

On March 4, 2022, the Company entered into an offering agreement with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC as agent, pursuant to which the Company established an at-the-market equity program (the “ATM Program”). From the commencement of the ATM Program through to the date hereof, the Company has not issued any securities pursuant to the ATM Program and will not issue any securities pursuant to the ATM Program while the Company purchases shares pursuant to the NCIB.
