MONTREAL (QC), CANADA –
Media OutReach – 2 February 2023 –
Pow.re Holdings Limited (“Pow.re” or the “Company”), a high-density computing (“HDC”) proof-of-work digital mining and fintech enterprise, has closed a US$9.2 million Series-A funding round at a US$150 million post-money valuation. Haru United Pte Ltd. (“Haru”) – a holding company of asset management platform, haruinvest.com – led the round joined by Trinito Corporation, RFD Capital Pte Ltd and others.
Pow.re is also pleased to announce an US$18 million strategic investment from Haru and partnership in the Company’s first HDC site in Paraguay.
“We are grateful to our strategic partner and investors for their support and conviction in our execution capabilities.” said Calvin Tay, Pow.re’s Group CFO. “This mandate will enable us to accelerate our growth and capitalize on opportunities in current market conditions.”
These investments provide the Company means to execute its counter-cyclical ASIC purchasing and infrastructure growth strategy. Pow.re will tactically drive infrastructure growth by maximizing use of capacity in existing Canadian facilities while building out further capacity at new HDC facilities.
The Company’s new facilities in Paraguay will be energized through agreements between Pow.re and the
Administración Nacional de Electricidad Ande (“ANDE” – national power distributor). Paraguay’s grid is powered almost completely by hydropower and the country has ample additional sustainable energy production, approximately double its own use.
The Company remains on track to operate over 500 petahash per second of hashing power within 1Q23. Pow.re’s first Paraguayan facility began operations late January and the second facility by the end of 1Q23. Pow.re’s pipeline of several 100MW hydro-powered opportunities is coming to fruition, and the company remains diligent in its pursuit of growth.
Finally, Pow.re is excited to welcome two digital mining veterans to its advisory board:
Anthony Levesque, Former VP, Operations at Bitfarms (NasdaqGM: BITF) and; Carson Smith, CEO of SBI Crypto.
These advisors bring proven success and complementary experience in digital assets that will contribute to the Company’s ongoing growth.
