Bitfarms Announces Completion of Final US$5M Tranche of Loan Financing

TORONTO & BROSSARD, Quebec–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bitfarms Ltd. (together with its subsidiaries, “Bitfarms”, or the “Company”) (TSXV: BITF), is pleased to announce that it has drawn down the fourth and final debt financing tranche of US$5,000,000 under its loan agreement with DC BFL SPV LLC (the “Lender”).

As announced in the Company’s news release dated March 17, 2019, Backbone Hosting Solutions Inc., a subsidiary of Bitfarms Ltd. entered into a loan agreement with DC BFL SPV LLC, an affiliate of Dominion Capital LLC (“Dominion”) and secured US$20,000,000 in debt financing made available in four (4) US$5,000,000 tranches tied to the satisfaction of various operational and corporate milestones. Pursuant to the terms of the loan agreement and in connection with the fourth drawdown, the Company confirmed to the Lender the exercisability of the 1.67M fourth tranche warrants to purchase common shares of the Company issued to the Lender at an exercise price of US$0.40 per share.

For further details on the loan financing please refer to the original news release.

Upon the funding of the fourth tranche and the confirmed exercisability of the fourth tranche of Lender warrants, Bitfarms has issued the Lender an aggregate of 6,666,667 warrants (“Lender Warrants”) to purchase 6,666,667 common shares of the Company (the “Lender Warrant Shares”) at an exercise price of US$ 0.40 per share. Each warrant is exercisable at any time at the option of the Lender for a period of five years from the issue date of such warrant.

Upon the exercise of all the Lender Warrants, Dominion will have beneficial ownership and control of an aggregate of 6,666,667 common shares of Bitfarms, representing approximately 11.7% of the then outstanding common shares assuming no additional issuances or redemptions of common shares prior to such exercise. Immediately before the funding of the fourth tranche, Dominion was the beneficial owner of 5,000,001 Lender Warrants and in the event that the Lender Warrants would have been fully exercised immediately prior to issuance of the fourth tranche warrants, Dominion would have beneficially owned or controlled 8.8% of the outstanding common shares of the Company (on a partially diluted basis). Dominion is, indirectly through Lender, acquiring the Lender Warrants for investment purposes and continues to monitor the business, prospects, financial condition and potential capital requirements of Bitfarms. Depending on its evaluation of these and other factors, Dominion or Lender may from time to time in the future increase or decrease their respective ownership, control or direction over the common or other securities of Bitfarms through market transactions, private agreements, subscriptions from treasury or otherwise.

An early warning report containing additional information with respect to the foregoing matters will be filed under Bitfarms’ SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
