Core Scientific Secures $55M in Equity

Bitcoin miner Core Scientific has successfully closed a $55 million equity financing round, marking a significant step toward its emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The oversubscribed equity offering, which expired recently, contributed to the company’s enhanced liquidity and strengthened position to execute growth plans.

Core Scientific CEO Adam Sullivan expressed confidence in the company’s emergence from Chapter 11 in January, emphasizing the successful raise and full repayment of previously drawn amounts on their debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing.

In the November 2023 financial statement, Core Scientific disclosed $2.3 billion in assets and $559 million in liabilities, resulting in a total equity of $1.8 billion. The company aims to relist on the NASDAQ exchange after finalizing bankruptcy proceedings.

As part of its financial restructuring, Core Scientific filed for bankruptcy in December 2022, citing challenges such as the crypto winter, rising energy prices, increased mining difficulty, and bad debt associated with Celsius.

In a related development on January 4, the company prepaid the outstanding DIP balance provided by lender Riley Financial, retaining access to the remaining $35 million under the DIP agreement. Under the proposed restructuring plan, Core Scientific would emerge from bankruptcy with $709 million in net debt and $791 million in shareholder equity.

Shareholders are set to receive new shares at a ratio of 25:1, translating to $1.08 per pre-exchange share. Noteholders are expected to receive $1.628 for convertible notes due in April and $1.201 for notes with an August due date. This successful financing round underscores Core Scientific’s commitment to navigating the challenges of the cryptocurrency industry and positioning itself for renewed growth and stability.
