Bitcoin (BTC) miner Greenidge Generation (GREE) posted fourth-quarter revenue of $44.3 million, up 617% from a year ago, and roughly in line with the FactSet consensus of analysts at $44.5 million.

  • Greenidge reported adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $19.1 million, up from $1.2 million a year ago, and matching analyst estimates.
  • The company mined 609 bitcoin in Q4, a 167% rise from 228 in the same quarter in a year earlier. For all 2021, Greenidge mined 1,866 bitcoin versus 1,146 in 2020.

  • The miner this month agreed to a request by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for the agency to extend, for a second time, the deadline to complete its review of the renewal application for the Title V Air Permit at the company’s New York facility. The new date is June 30.
  • “Greenidge continues to operate in New York without interruption during this period and intends to continue to work constructively with the Department to finalize a permit renewal,” the company said in the statement. “It is not uncommon for renewal applicants to operate for extended periods of time, sometimes years, prior to finalizing a permit renewal and additional future extensions may be requested," the miner added.
