The Company also provided an operational update.

Reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) is set forth in the schedule accompanying this release. See “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures.”

Management Commentary

“During the quarter, Applied Digital encountered several challenges that impacted our financial performance due to facility power outages in our datacenter hosting business. Despite these short-term setbacks, we made significant progress with our key growth initiatives in the development of our Cloud Services business and the establishment of our special purpose built 100 MW HPC datacenter in Ellendale,” stated Wes Cummins, Chairman and CEO of Applied Digital. “Other achievements included welcoming our newest Cloud Services customer, Together AI, and the strategic decision to divest our Garden City Facility.”

“Moreover, we are pleased to announce a pivotal advancement. We have entered into exclusivity and executed an LOI with a US-based hyperscaler for a 400 MW capacity lease of our Ellendale HPC campus. This encompasses our 100 MW facility under construction and plans for two additional buildings. In addition, we continue to see outsized demand for HPC hosting capacity at our differentiated Ellendale campus. where we have more than 600MW of future capacity. We are progressing with project level financing tailored for this investment-grade tenant. This milestone advances our strategic growth initiatives and stands as an impressive achievement for our organization.”

“Looking forward, we are encouraged by the robust demand we are witnessing across our business. We believe we are well-positioned to execute our growth strategy and capitalize on the increasing opportunities presented by both traditional customers and emerging HPC applications.”

Cloud Service Update

Applied Digital’s Cloud Services provides high-performance computing power for artificial intelligence and machine learning applications. The Company continues to seek and sign additional customers, and the pipeline remains robust. During the fiscal third quarter, we did experience a substantial drag on earnings, adjusted earnings and EBITDA from expenses resulting from increased levels of in-service equipment that were not yet contributing to revenue generation. Near the end of the quarter, more of this equipment began generating revenue, which we expect will make a positive impact on the financial performance of this segment in the fiscal fourth quarter.

High-Performance Computing (HPC) Datacenter Hosting Update

Applied Digital’s HPC hosting business designs, builds, and operates next-generation data centers, which are designed to provide massive computing power and support high-performance computing applications within a cost-effective model. During the fiscal second quarter, the Company broke ground on its first 100 MW high-performance compute facility in Ellendale, North Dakota. The new 342,000-square-foot building will provide ultra-low-cost and highly efficient liquid-cooled infrastructure for HPC applications.

The Company has entered into exclusivity and executed an LOI with a US-based hyperscaler for a 400 MW capacity lease, inclusive of our current 100 MW facility and two forthcoming buildings in Ellendale, North Dakota. The Company is in advanced discussions with traditional financing counterparties for this investment-grade tenant. The exclusive negotiation period with the initial HPC anchor tenant identified for our Ellendale campus expired at the end of March.

Datacenter Hosting Update

The Company’s 100 MW facility in Jamestown, North Dakota, operated at full capacity during the quarter ended February 29, 2024; however, the Company’s 180 MW facility in Ellendale, North Dakota experienced a power outage starting in January. In response to these challenges, our utility provider installed equipment to enable us to selectively power-down the affected portions of our site. Upon re-energization we have determined the failures were due to transformers not meeting industry standards. The Company has successfully procured new transformers and related components from North American industry-leading manufacturers. As of the date of this report, the Ellendale facility has begun energization and has been re-energized to approximately 14% of its full capacity, or 25 MW. In addition, the Company anticipates that as new transformers are received and installed, the Ellendale facility will target operating capacity of approximately 65%-75% of full capacity by the end of May 2024.

Financial Results for Fiscal Third Quarter 2024 Ended February 29, 2024

Balance Sheet

Applied Digital ended the fiscal quarter with cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash of $41.0 million and $61.8 million in debt outstanding.

Operating Results

Total revenues in the fiscal third quarter 2024 were $43.3 million, up 208% from the fiscal third quarter 2023. The increase in revenues were driven by increased capacity across the Company’s three datacenter hosting facilities between periods as well as the Company’s recognizing revenue under its Cloud services segment which began providing service during the current fiscal year.

Cost of revenues in the fiscal third quarter 2024 was $47.1 million compared to $10.5 million in the fiscal third quarter 2023. The increase in the cost of revenues was attributable to higher energy costs due to a higher number of MWs online. The increase was also driven by increases in depreciation and amortization expense and personnel expenses primarily driven by the growth in the business as more facilities were energized compared to the fiscal third quarter of 2023.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the fiscal third quarter 2024 were $30.4 million compared to $10.5 million in the fiscal third quarter of 2023. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, which, by nature, are not directly attributable to revenue generation, was primarily driven by an increase in depreciation and amortization expense for equipment not yet supporting revenue, an increase in lease expenses for facilities that have not yet begun generating revenue, and an increase in professional service expenses related to legal services associated with discrete transactions and projects as well as general support of the growth of the business compared to the fiscal third quarter 2023.

Net loss for the fiscal third quarter 2024 was $62.8 million, or $0.52 per basic and diluted share, based on a weighted average share count during the quarter of 121.4 million. This compares to a net loss of $7.3 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, based on a weighted average share count of 94.1 million for the fiscal third quarter 2023.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the fiscal third quarter 2024 was loss of $2.3 million compared to an Adjusted EBITDA of $0.9 million for the fiscal third quarter 2023. Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by $4.8 million of expenses associated with facilities that are not yet generating revenue.

Adjusted net loss, a non-GAAP measure, for the fiscal third quarter of 2024, was $28.9 million or adjusted net loss per basic and diluted share of $0.24, based on a weighted average share count during the quarter of approximately 121.4 million. This compares to an adjusted net loss, a non-GAAP measure, of $1.4 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, for the fiscal third quarter of 2023 based on a weighted average share count during the quarter of approximately 94.1 million. Adjusted net loss was negatively impacted by $15.6 million of expenses associated with facilities and equipment that are not yet generating revenue.

Cash Flows

The Company experienced a net decrease in cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash during the nine months ended February 29, 2024 of $2.6 million. The primary drivers of the change were:

  • Purchase of property, equipment, and other assets of $87.0 million, driven by construction of the Company’s HPC hosting datacenter;
  • Finance lease prepayments of $35.1 million and finance leases recurring payments of $27.5 million, primarily driven by the Company’s leases of hosting equipment for Cloud services; and
  • Debt repayments of approximately $52.3 million.

These were partially offset by the following:

  • Net cash received from operating activities of $47.9 million, driven by the recurring operations of the business;
  • Borrowings of $31.4 million including funding received from related party loans; and
  • Net cash received from the issuance of common stock of $121.0 million under the Company’s at-the-market sales agreement.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains “forward-looking statements” as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 regarding, among other things, future operating and financial performance, product development, market position, business strategy and objectives. These statements use words, and variations of words, such as “continue,” “build,” “future,” “increase,” “drive,” “believe,” “look,” “ahead,” “confident,” “deliver,” “outlook,” “expect,” and “predict.” Other examples of forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to, (i) statements of Company plans and objectives, including our evolving business model, or estimates or predictions of actions by suppliers, (ii) statements of future economic performance, and (iii) statements of assumptions underlying other statements and statements about the Company or its business. You are cautioned not to rely on these forward-looking statements. These statements are based on current expectations of future events and thus are inherently subject to uncertainty. If underlying assumptions prove inaccurate or known or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results could vary materially from the Company’s expectations and projections. These risks, uncertainties, and other factors include: decline in demand for our products and services; the volatility of the crypto asset industry; the inability to comply with developments and changes in regulation; cash flow and access to capital; and maintenance of third party relationships. Information in this release is as of the dates and time periods indicated herein, and the Company does not undertake to update any of the information contained in these materials, except as required by law.

Use and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we are presenting certain non-GAAP financial measures. We are providing these non-GAAP financial measures to disclose additional information to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations by providing perspective on results absent one-time or significant non-cash items. We utilize these measures in the business planning process to understand expected operating performance and to evaluate results against those expectations. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provide management and investors with an additional understanding of our business operating results regarding factors and trends affecting our business and provide a reasonable basis for comparing our ongoing results of operations.

These non-GAAP financial measures are provided as supplemental measures to the Company’s performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and therefore, are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures. Further, these non-GAAP measures have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Because of the non-standardized definitions of non-GAAP financial measures, we caution investors that the non-GAAP financial measures as used by us in this release have limits in their usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. Further, investors should be aware that when evaluating these non-GAAP financial measures, these measures should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. In addition, from time to time in the future there may be items that we may exclude for purposes of our non-GAAP financial measures and we may in the future cease to exclude items that we have historically excluded for purposes of our non-GAAP financial measures. Likewise, we may determine to modify the nature of the adjustments to arrive at our non-GAAP financial measures. Investors should review the non-GAAP reconciliations provided below and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.

Change in Presentation

Beginning in the third quarter of 2024, the Company updated its presentation of non-GAAP measures. As a result of this updated presentation, the Company no longer excludes start-up costs as an adjustment to Operating loss, Net loss, or EBITDA in our calculation of Adjusted operating loss, Adjusted net loss, Adjusted net loss per diluted share, and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss, and Adjusted net loss per diluted share are non-GAAP measures and are defined below.

Adjusted Operating Loss, Adjusted Net Loss, and Adjusted Net Loss per Diluted Share

“Adjusted Operating Loss” and “Adjusted Net Loss” are non-GAAP measures that represent operating loss and net loss, respectively, excluding stock-based compensation, litigation expenses, non-recurring professional service costs, non-recurring research and development expenses, loss on classification of held for sale, loss on abandonment of assets, and loss on legal settlement. Adjusted net loss is further adjusted for the loss on the change in fair value of related party debt and the loss on extinguishment of debt. We define “Adjusted Net Loss per Diluted Share” as Adjusted net loss divided by weighted average diluted share count.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

“EBITDA” is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined as EBITDA adjusted for stock-based compensation, litigation expenses, non-recurring professional service costs, non-recurring research and development expenses, loss on classification of of held for sale, loss on abandonment of assets, loss on the change in fair value of related party debt, loss of extinguishment of debt, and loss on legal settlement.
