Greenridge Cuts Debt with NYDIG
Bitcoin miner Greenridge Generation Holdings has entered into several agreements associated with its secured debt with New York Digital Investment Group (NYDIG), reducing the principal and accrued interest balance of debt from about $76 million to roughly $17 million. This results in total aggregate debt reduction of around $59 million.
Voluntary Prepayment Opportunity
The senior secured loan agreement also enables an opportunity for a voluntary prepayment of the loan by transferring ownership of certain mining infrastructure assets. Subject to a binding agreement by NYDIG, this could potentially reduce the principal balance of the debt to approximately $7 million.
Clearer Path Forward
Greenidge CEO Dave Anderson expressed confidence about their clear path forward as they enter 2023, stating: “The completion of this debt restructuring, coupled with the execution of new hosting agreements, has improved our balance sheet.” Despite restructuring into a hosting firm for Bitcoin mining, Greenidge still owns about 10,000 miners which maintain a capacity of 1.1 EH/s.
