Newport Beach, Calif., May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), a diversified holding company (“DPW” or the “Company”) announced an update on the progress and timing of the purchase of real estate that will feature a data center to be operated by Digital Farms, Inc. (“DFI”), a wholly owned subsidiary of DPW. The Company stated that the real estate transaction is expected to close by the end of second quarter of 2019. The data center is a multi-use facility with approximately 617,000 sq. ft., has immediate access to 28 megawatts of power and an infrastructure to support up to 300 megawatts.
As Bitcoin prices were rising above $4,000, DFI increased its mining activity and continues to increase or decrease its mining efforts as the market conditions dictate. The Company is optimistic that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency prices will maintain or exceed their present levels; however, the DFI team continues to work diligently to maintain overall mining profitability.
CEO Darren Magot said, “The closing of the real estate purchase for the data center is an important step in the execution of our long-term plan. Once the acquisition is closed, DFI will move all of its mining assets to the new location, thereby increasing overall mining profitability.”
DPW, in its press release dated March 18, 2019, discussed certain aspects of its plans regarding DFI including that a Form 10 was being prepared that would allow the distribution of its shares to DPW’s stockholders. The Company noted it will continue to keep stockholders, investors and those parties interested in either DPW or DFI informed and will provide more information publicly that will be specific to the closing of the real estate transaction and thereafter as to the status of the spin-off or special dividend of DFI to DPW stockholders, as it becomes available.
