Cathedra Bitcoin And Kungsleden Inc. Announce Merger To Create An Infrastructure Company For The Digital Economy

Transaction is intended to create a scaled, vertically integrated, and diversified bitcoin mining and hosting business with an expected 4.8 EH/s of hash rate under management[1] across approximately 94 MW of power capacity[2] at 8 data centers in 5 states.

Expected to contribute to Cathedra's growth trajectory by adding Kungsleden's data center development team, who have grown Kungsleden's power capacity at a 136% CAGR since 2022 using a low-cost, rapid‑deployment development model.

Kungsleden’s revenue from across 42 MW of hosting capacity is expected to complement Cathedra’s bitcoin mining revenue and provide defensibility as the 2024 Halving approaches.

1,200 of Cathedra’s existing mining machines are expected to benefit from lower wholesale power cost at a Kungsleden-owned site, with potential to relocate Cathedra’s remaining machines in the future.

Opportunity to apply Kungsleden’s low-cost development and operating capabilities to the high‑performance compute data center market for artificial intelligence and other applications.

Existing Cathedra management team will be joined by new CFO Inar Kamaletdinov, with Kungsleden co-founders Thomas Masiero and Gavin Qu joining the board of directors as Co-Chairmen.

TORONTO, Ontario, March 7, 2024 (Block Height: 833,510) – Cathedra Bitcoin Inc. (“Cathedra” or the “Corporation”) (TSX-V: CBIT; OTCQB: CBTTF), a diversified bitcoin mining company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding share exchange agreement (the “Share Exchange Agreement”) dated March 6, 2024, providing for a merger with Kungsleden, Inc. (“Kungsleden”), a developer and operator of alternative high-density compute infrastructure. Pursuant to the Share Exchange Agreement, it is expected that Cathedra will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Kungsleden from Kungsleden shareholders in exchange for Multiple Voting Shares (as defined below) of Cathedra, as more particularly set out below (the “Transaction”). The Transaction will constitute a reverse takeover of Cathedra, such that, upon closing, the former Kungsleden shareholders will own (on a non-diluted basis) approximately 77.5% of the equity of Cathedra as it exists on closing (the “Resulting Issuer”) and Kungsleden will become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Resulting Issuer, with the board of the Resulting Issuer directing the operations of Cathedra and Kungsleden. Upon completion of the Transaction, it is expected that the Resulting Issuer will be a Tier 2 Technology issuer listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSX-V”).

The Transaction is expected to establish the Resulting Issuer as a developer and operator of data center infrastructure for the digital economy, with a focus on bitcoin mining.

“We are excited to contribute to Cathedra’s business through this Transaction. Importantly, we are not merely acquiring a portfolio of data center assets in this merger; we are joining forces with the team responsible for developing these assets,” remarked Antonin Scalia, Chief Executive Officer of Cathedra Bitcoin. “Kungsleden has established a scalable, repeatable process for developing bitcoin mining data centers with impressive construction costs and time-to-market. We also see opportunity beyond the bitcoin mining end-market, with the potential to apply these infrastructure development capabilities to the traditional data center and high-performance compute markets.”

Thomas Masiero, Chief Executive Officer of Kungsleden, stated, "With our merger, Kungsleden and Cathedra are forging a path to potentially becoming a digital infrastructure leader. This strategic union combines our expertise, resources, and ambition, enabling us to set a high standard for bitcoin mining operations.”

Resulting Issuer’s Business Operations

Upon completion of the Transaction, the Resulting Issuer’s business operations are expected to include:

  • 4.4 EH/s of third-party hash rate under management across 87 megawatts (“MW”) of total power capacity at Kungsleden-operated data centers in Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Dakota.3
  • 0.4 EH/s of installed proprietary mining hash rate hosted at four third-party data centers in Washington, Tennessee, and Texas, and one Kungsleden data center in Tennessee.
  • 45-MW portfolio of owned and operated bitcoin mining hosting data centers consisting of two 10‑MW sites in Kentucky; one 10-MW site in Tennessee; and a 25% minority interest in a 60-MW site in North Dakota (equivalent to 15 MW of owned capacity) which is under development.
  • As of the date hereof, total expected pro forma annualized revenues of C$48.0 million4 derived from Cathedra’s installed proprietary mining operations and Kungsleden’s hosting business.
    • Expected pro forma annualized bitcoin mining revenue of approximately C$12.0 million4 after the 2024 Halving, assuming no other changes to market conditions at the time of this announcement.5
    • Expected pro forma annualized hosting revenue of approximately C$36.0 million4 across Kungsleden’s data centers in Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Dakota, including active locations and those currently under development.6
  • The Resulting Issuer will carry C$5.7 million7 of total debt, consisting entirely of senior secured convertible debentures issued by Cathedra to a certain investor in November 2021. The convertible debentures carry interest at a rate of 3.5% per annum and do not require principal repayment until maturity in November 2025, whereupon the full principal balance is due.
  • Existing balance sheet cash and bitcoin from Cathedra of C$1.2 million and C$3.0 million (33.3 bitcoin), respectively, and balance sheet cash of C$1.3 million from Kungsleden, subject to fluctuations between the time of this announcement and the closing of the Transaction.7
