HONG KONG, April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lion Group Holding Ltd. ("Lion" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: LGHL), operator of an all-in-one trading platform that offers a wide spectrum of products and services with a focus on Chinese investors, today announced that its subsidiary Lion Wealth Limited (the "Buyer" or "Lion Wealth"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lion, entered into an antminer transfer and maintenance agreement (the "Agreement") with Shanghai Minebaba Network Technology Co., Ltd. (the "Maintenance Party") and its affiliate (the "Seller"), to acquire 5,000 brand new units of Bitmain Antminers S9 Hydro (the "Equipment") in a single transaction. The Equipment will be deployed in Sichuan, China and used for Bitcoin mining.
Mr. Chunning (Wilson) Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Lion, commented: "Crypto markets have observed four major price cycles since 2010, which typically last durations ranging for several years. Lion has decided to bring in this technology to capture this trend and meet our customers' ongoing demands to trade and invest in crypto assets. Following the acquisition of Lion FinTech Group earlier this month, this new movement marks another steady step to expand our business into the crypto asset market. We believe that cryptocurrency will become a major asset to our customers and drive long-term value."
Under the terms of the Agreement, ownership of the Equipment will be transferred from the Seller to the Buyer for a total price of about RMB17 million (about $2.6 million). The Equipment is expected to contribute revenue (net of electricity cost) of RMB 30 million (about $4.6 million) in 2021, based on 90PH/S of hashing power generated, estimated power consumption and current Bitcoin price.
The deal is expected to close by May 2021, upon onsite inspection and acceptance and payment. After the transaction is completed, the Maintenance Party will continue to handle its operations. Utilizing the trading license held by Lion FinTech Group in Dubai, Lion intends the Bitcoins awarded through its mining activities for serving its customers' needs in investing and trading crypto assets. Lion expects the lifetime of the Equipment to be approximately three years.
