Full Year 2018 Gross Revenue Guidance
On August 15, 2018, the Company updated its fiscal year 2018 gross revenue expectation to between $34.0 million and $39.0 million, compared to its previous guidance of $44 million to $49 million. The Company’s updated guidance includes the assumption that its cryptocurrency mining operations will continue to operate at current levels and that Bitcoin prices remain depressed at between $6,000 and $6,500 during the second half of 2018. In addition, guidance was reduced to adjust for the fact that the Company’s acquisitions of Enertec Systems and I.AM, Inc. closed later in the second quarter than originally anticipated. The Company estimates that its current annualized gross revenue run-rate is approximately $40 million.
