AGM Group Holdings Inc. : Announces First Half 2021 Unaudited Financial Results

09/29/2021 | 07:46am EST

BEIJING, Sept. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- AGM Group Holdings Inc. ("AGMH" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: AGMH), an integrated technology company focusing on high-performance chip solutions, computing equipment and fintech software services, today announced its unaudited financial results for the for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Recent Developments

With two recent executive hires, Mr. Bo Zhu as Chief Strategy Officer ("CSO"), and Mr. Li Chenjun as Co-Chief Executive Officer ("Co-CEO"), on June 2021, and July 2021 respectively, the Company decided to enter into new business lines: ASIC chip research and development and crypto mining equipment manufacturing and sales.

The newly appointed executives, Co-CEO Mr. Chenjun Li and CSO Mr. Bo Zhu, each has significant experience and industry resources in chip designs and blockchain applications. As one of the pioneers in the ASIC chip design area, Mr. Chenjun Li has extensive experience in the chip production supply chain. In 2013, the Co-CEO, Mr. Chenjun Li, designed the first-generation ASIC applicable to Bitcoin computing and successfully completed the mass production of 16nm and 10nm ASIC chips at TMSC and Samsung in 2015 and 2017, respectively. The CSO, Mr. Bo Zhu. has a significant understanding of the blockchain technology application, as well as a well-known reputation and extensive network within the industry due to the extended time spent in high-performance computing research in the past years.

In August 2021, the Company announced the launch of its first ASIC crypto Miner - KOI MINER C16 ("C16"). C16 is equipped with the C3012 chip made by Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp.'s N+1 process. C16 has a hash rate up to 113 TH/s and a power efficiency ratio of 30 J/T, supporting the mining of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and other cryptocurrencies.

With increased institutional investment and attention to blockchain and cryptocurrencies, many large listed crypto mining companies in the United States and Canada have demonstrated a huge demand for high-end Bitcoin miners, and we expect that our C16 miners have the opportunity to secure a considerable amount of orders in this trend. C16 is expected to launch sales in the United States, Canada and Europe.

In order to achieve our mission as stated in the new growth strategy announced in August 2021: to become one of the key participants and contributors in the global blockchain ecosystem, we incorporated a wholly owned limited liability subsidiary, Nanjing Lucun Semiconductor Co. Ltd., in China on June 17, 2021. We also established two wholly owned subsidiaries, AGM Defi Lab Pte Limited in Singapore and AGM Defi Tech Limited in Hong Kong on July 30, 2021 and August 8, 2021, respectively, for providing software development and consulting services in Asian areas. We plan to establish office and research center in Hongkong and Singapore as those regions have cleared regulatory framework towards crypto assets and blockchain technology and hire more senior professional.

In September 2021, we entered into a strategic partnership agreement with HighSharp (Shenzhen Gaorui) Electronic Technology Co., Ltd ("HighSharp"), a fabless integrated circuit designer that provides advanced semiconductor solutions for supercomputing hardware, pursuant to which, for a six-month period until March 25, 2022, HighSharp will provide the latest ASIC chip technology and manufacturing services to the Company and the Company will be responsible for client development on a global basis, with a target to generate orders in a total amount of US$100 million during the six-month term until March 25, 2022. If the Company and HighSharp achieve their respective targets, the Company and HighSharp plan to form a joint venture, joined by HighSharp's key R&D team members, with the goal to integrate next generation product research and development into fabless integrated circuit design capabilities that provides advanced semiconductor solutions for supercomputing hardware. The Company will own 60% equity and HighSharp will own 40% equity in the joint venture.

Growth Strategies

The Company formed new growth strategy in August 2021.

The Company is now positioned as an integrated technology company focusing on blockchain-oriented ASIC chip design, advanced crypto miner production, and fintech software service, with company's mission: becoming one of the key participants and contributors in the global blockchain ecosystem.

Our growth strategy mainly focusing on crypto miner business and high-performance ASIC chip research and development and supplemented by development of blockchain and fintech applications. We have assembled a team of industry veterans in high-performance chip designs and blockchain applications to support its growth strategy.

Our executives in charge of chip and crypto miner business entered the ASIC chip field back in 2013 and was one of the pioneers within the industry. With extensive experience and industry resources, the Company is able to ensure the stability of the supply chain and secure the supplies to crypto mining operators during the global chip shortage.

In August 2021, the Company announced the launch of its first ASIC crypto Miner - KOI MINER C16 ("C16"). C16 is equipped with the C3012 chip made by Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp.'s N+1 process. C16 has a hash rate up to 113 TH/s and a power efficiency ratio of 30 J/T, supporting the mining of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and other cryptocurrencies. C16's parameters have surpassed its peer miners including Bitmain's Antminer S19 pro and Canaan's AvalonMiner1246.  

In blockchain and fintech application areas, we launched a financial training network web service back to June 2019. It targets the beginner and intermediate users and help them to improve their basic trading skills and be more familiar with knowledge of modern trading software and financial markets. Fintech product team remain actively research and seek opportunities to introduce blockchain-based NFT and Defi technologies into existing products, aiming to provide more values to clients and bring more knowledge of blockchain and crypto assets to clients.

Mr. Wenjie Tang, the CEO of the company, commented, "We delivered some remarkable processes to our business transformation in the past few months. We managed to mark a few significant steps in the development of our blockchain-related new businesses, thanks to the effective execution from our new leadership. I am very excited about the launch of our first branded KOI MINER C16 which has competitive and encouraging performance parameters among its peers. In addition, our strategic partnership with HighSharp Electronic Technology will further strengthen our competitiveness in the crypto mining market. We will continue to make great efforts and create compelling values for our shareholders going forward."

Mr. Chenjun Li, the co-CEO of the company commented, "We are proud to see the meaningful progresses we have made so far. Despite the industry wide challenges on the chip shortage, our resources and ability in stabling the supply chain and production enables us to stand out in the market. Looking forward, we will continue our efforts in the research and development to advance our product performance and competitiveness, and in accessing oversea market and institutional clients to grasp the tremendous opportunities in crypto mining market. We are confident that we will keep making encouraging strides in development of our business and products, propelling forward our growth prospects."

Mr. Steven Sim, the CFO of the Company, commented, "Currently, our financials indicate a delicate situation as we are still strategically transitioning our business into ASIC chip design and crypto mining equipment field. Nevertheless, we remain confident in our effective growth strategies, technologically advanced products, solid operating capabilities, as well as the enormous potential of the industry. Looking ahead, our financial performance could improve significantly in the near future as we believe we are able to secure a considerable amount of orders for our Bitcoin miner C16 from institutional clients. In addition, we plan to continue investing in the areas that will help to further develop both our core crypto miner manufacturing business and other business initiatives in order to sustain our growth trajectory in 2021 and beyond."
