VANCOUVER, British Columbia - May 2, 2022 - Neptune Digital Assets Corp. (TSX-V:NDA) (OTC:NPPTF) (FSE:1NW) ("Neptune" or the "Company"), a blockchain technology and cryptocurrency leader in Canada, is pleased to announce that it has released its quarterly consolidated financial statements and management, discussion and analysis for the three and six months ended February 28, 2022.
Below are a number of financial highlights pertaining to the second quarter ending February 28, 2022 and for the period subsequent to year-end up to the date of this news release.
Neptune earned $3,455,955 through Bitcoin mining and other income-generating activities during the three-month period ended February 28, 2022. This represents an increase of 102% over the prior quarter.
Neptune ended the quarter on February 28, 2022 with $62 million in assets and no debt. This equates to a slight decrease over the prior quarter due to cryptocurrency value fluctuation over the period. Neptune did not convert any cryptocurrency tokens into fiat currency with the exception of stable coins.
Total expenses for the six-month period were $1,255,808, including non-cash values of depreciation and foreign exchange loss.
Neptune's two largest digital asset holdings as of the date of this release are 194 Bitcoin and 152,964 ATOM.
The Company also holds positions in FTM, TSHARE, DOT, DASH, Tomb, ETH, BCH, LTC, and a number of other tokens of immaterial values, as well as an investment in the Protocol Crypto Quant Fund valued at $6 million and a current cash/USD-loans/stablecoin balance of $23 million for strategic acquisitions, Bitcoin mining rig purchases and operations.
"In spite of a pullback in cryptocurrency values from the first quarter, Neptune had a strong second quarter with a doubling in gross earnings," stated Cale Moodie, Neptune CEO. "We have received another 53 petahash in mining rigs which are currently warehoused in the USA and those will be hashing as soon as possible. We hope to take advantage of any market weakness with our cashed-up balance sheet in terms of both rig acquisitions and general token purchases, all while appropriately managing market risk and exposure."
