Ault Alliance Is Exploring Initiative to Distribute Special Dividend Payable in Bitcoin

Source: 7/11/2023, Location: North America

Ault Alliance, Inc., a diversified holding company, (“Ault Alliance” or the “Company”), announced that it plans to explore a pathway that will allow it to issue a special dividend payable in Bitcoin to stockholders. The Company intends to collaborate with regulatory authorities, its transfer agent and others, which may include a trusted custodian, to determine what is required in order to pay a special dividend in Bitcoin.

The planned dividend would be paid from Bitcoin generated by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, BitNile, Inc. (“BNI”). As previously announced, BNI issued an unaudited update on its Bitcoin mining operations reporting BNI’s mining operations is currently operating at an operational hash rate of 2.1 exahashes per second with approximately 9,000 of its Bitcoin miners at its Michigan data center and 10,000 Bitcoin miners that are being hosted through its strategic collaboration with Core Scientific, Inc. The annualized gross value of Bitcoin currently being mined utilizing BNI’s miners is more than $55 million, or approximately 1,800 Bitcoin, based on current market conditions, including a current trading price of Bitcoin at $30,400 and a mining difficulty of 50.65 trillion.

Ault Alliance remains dedicated to its core mission of driving innovation and delivering exceptional value to its stockholders. With the increasing popularity and adoption of cryptocurrencies, Ault Alliance recognizes the potential of Bitcoin as a valuable asset for its stockholders. The idea of potentially issuing a Bitcoin dividend is aimed at providing a forward-thinking approach to stockholder value enhancement. By leveraging its Bitcoin mining operations, Ault Alliance seeks to provide an alternative investment opportunity and potential long-term value appreciation for its stockholders.

Ault Alliance is also exploring ways to facilitate the effectuation of its conceptual design for stockholders who may not be familiar or comfortable with receiving a dividend in Bitcoin itself. Ault Alliance would, with the intention of addressing the preferences of all of its stockholders, accomplish this objective by offering its stockholders as of the ex-dividend date a choice of receiving actual Bitcoin or a cash payment equal to the dollar value of the Bitcoin as of such ex-dividend date.

“By exploring a possible Bitcoin dividend, we aim to stay at the forefront of technological advancements and provide additional value to our stockholders,” said Milton “Todd” Ault III, Founder and Executive Chairman of Ault Alliance. “We believe that cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, hold tremendous potential for the future, and we want our stockholders to benefit from this exciting opportunity.”

In order to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and promote transparency, Ault Alliance will be working closely with relevant regulatory authorities throughout the process. The Company is committed to adhering to the highest standards of corporate governance and regulatory compliance in all its operations. At this time, the Company has not declared a dividend and there can be no assurances that it will declare a dividend payable in Bitcoin or a Bitcoin-denominated cash payment, if at all. The Company has not yet determined what procedures would be required to permit stockholders to receive a dividend in Bitcoin, and even if the Company is able to pay a special dividend in Bitcoin, there are no guarantees that all stockholders will be permitted by their local governmental bodies to receive the dividend in Bitcoin.

Ault Alliance notes that all estimates and other projections are subject to the volatility in Bitcoin market price, the fluctuation in the mining difficulty level, the ability to build out and provide the necessary power for miners, and other factors that may impact the results of Bitcoin mining production or operations.
