Stronghold Digital Mining (NASDAQ: SDIG), a vertically integrated Bitcoin mining company with an emphasis on environmentally beneficial operations, has entered into an exchange agreement with the holders of the company’s amended and restated 10% notes. According to the announcement, the result is that the approximately $17.9 million of outstanding principal amount of debt and interest will be extinguished in exchange for shares of a new series of convertible preferred stock; the face value of the new shares will total an estimated $23.1 million. The closing, which is subject to customary conditions, will occur as soon as practicable following the satisfaction or waiver but no later than Feb. 20, 2023. “We are pleased to announce another deleveraging transaction that is expected to materially reduce our debt, strengthen our balance sheet and improve our liquidity position,” said Stronghold Digital Mining cochair and CEO Greg Beard in the press release. “We acknowledge the significant number of shares of common stock that could be issued as a result of the exchange agreement, but we believe this is necessary to preserve cash, reduce our financial obligations and better position the company to survive a potentially prolonged crypto market downturn. Following the closing of the exchange agreement, which is currently expected to occur in February 2023, the company expects to have less than $55 million in total principal amount of debt outstanding. We believe that the transaction will also create comprehensive equity alignment among existing Stronghold shareholders and the noteholders, which is critical in this time of stress on the industry.”
