Management Commentary for March

“Cipher delivered another solid performance in March, which marks the completion of a remarkably strong first quarter of production,” said Tyler Page, CEO of Cipher. “Despite significant curtailment from our power provider at Odessa for plant maintenance and the continuing growth in overall network hash rate, our team did an outstanding job maintaining our uptime and optimizing our portfolio. We continued to grow our bitcoin inventory, which now stands at ~1,741 BTC. Also, our construction teams made significant progress developing our upcoming second quarter data center expansions at Bear and Chief and completed early work at our Black Pearl site, which is scheduled to come online in 2025. As we look toward the halving in April, we are very well positioned with our growing hash rate, best-in-class unit economics and continued timely execution of expansion plans.”
