PRESS RELEASE

Argo Blockchain PLC

('Argo' or 'the Company')

 

Business update

 

Argo, a leading UK-based provider of cryptocurrency mining services (LSE:ARB), is pleased to announce continuing strong growth as sales of its subscription packages continue to exceed supply and the Company's expectations.

The total number of sold packages increased by 146 per cent from 4,200 as at 1 October to 10,325 as of today after a new batch of mining packages sold out immediately on release to the market. As a result, the Company's target number of packages by January 2019 has been beaten by a significant margin ahead of schedule.

Argo estimates its current annualised revenue run-rate at approximately $6.2m (£4.8m), up from $0.26m at the time of its London stock market listing in August 2018.

Net cash amounted to approximately £15m as at 30th November.

 

Mike Edwards, co-founder and director of Argo, said: "Argo has come a long way since its inception only a year ago. Despite a recent downturn in the cryptocurrency market, we are continuing to experience a strong ramp-up in revenues due to good execution of our growth strategy.

 

"Our mining packages are being snapped up as quickly as we make these available and demand continues to exceed supply. With a strong balance sheet and prudent management of our investment in growth, Argo's long-term prospects remain bright and we look to the future with confidence."
