Canaan’s Q2 2023 Report: Bitcoin Mining Revenues Surge Despite $110 Million Net Loss

Bitcoin mining firm Canaan has disclosed its unaudited financial outcomes for the second quarter of 2023. The results reveal an increase in sold computing power and Bitcoin mining revenues, despite contending with a significant net loss of $110 million, marking a 31% surge compared to the previous quarter.

The company, which is listed on the NASDAQ, has elucidated a range of factors that influenced the boost in revenues as well as a substantial challenge that encompassed a write-down of inventory and an impairment of equipment, amounting to a combined value of $54 million.

Canaan’s revenue for Q2 2023 reached $73.9 million, an increase from the $55.2 million reported in the previous quarter. Within this figure, product revenue contributed $57.9 million, while Bitcoin mining revenue accounted for $15.9 million.

The increase in BTC mining revenues demonstrated a remarkable growth of 43.3% in contrast to the $11.1 million from Q1. Comparatively, the Q2 2023 BTC mining revenue substantially surpassed the $7.8 million recorded in Q2 2022. This expansion was attributed to the rebound in Bitcoin prices and the ensuing surge in Bitcoin rewards. Canaan stated, “The sequential increase was mainly driven by the Bitcoin price recovery and increased Bitcoin rewards across the network during the quarter”.  The company also noted a notable rise in the total computing power sold, soaring by 45% to 6.1 million thash/s on a quarterly basis, with this sector emerging as a pivotal revenue driver for the firm.

Canaan’s financial report highlighted a net loss of $110.7 million during Q2, which was associated with non-cash accruals and provisions reflecting alterations in selling prices, shifts in regulations, and changes in partner agreements. Canaan’s CFO, James Jin Cheng, explained that these losses encompassed inventory write-downs, provisions for commitment reserves, and property and equipment impairments, totaling $54.7 million. Cheng clarified, “These non-cash accruals and provisions reflect our consideration of the latest selling price change, regulation changes in Kazakhstan, and the default by the partner at a U.S. project, which did not influence our cash flow”. 

As of June 2023, Canaan’s publicly disclosed cryptocurrency holdings encompassed 1,125 BTC valued at $28.8 million. Among these, 747 BTC were owned by Canaan itself, while 378 BTC were attributed to customer deposits.

Additionally, Canaan divulged that it had halted 2.0 exahash/s of its mining computing power situated in Kazakhstan to ensure adherence to the Regulations for Licensing of Digital Mining Activities that had recently come into effect. The company is presently in the process of acquiring a specialized license to maintain its operations but anticipates a reduction in its Q3 BTC generation due to the offline hardware.
