ATLANTA, March 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BitMine Immersion Technologies, Inc. (OTC: BMNR) f/k/a Sandy Springs Holdings, Inc., www.bitminetech.io, is pleased to announce that on March 3, 2022 FINRA approved the Company’s name change from Sandy Springs Holdings, Inc. to BitMine Immersion Technologies, Inc., and concurrently approved a new ticker symbol whereby the Company is now trading under the symbol “BMNR”.
In July of 2021, new management was appointed for the Company in order to enable the Company to enter the business of creating a hosting center for Bitcoin mining computers primarily utilizing immersion cooling technology, as well as mining the Bitcoin digital currency for its own account.
Immersion cooling is the process of submerging computer components (or full servers) in a thermally, but not electrically, conductive liquid (dielectric coolant) allowing higher heat transfer performance than air and many other benefits. Immersion cooling can be up to 95% more efficient than standard air cooling, producing an estimated PUE (power usage effectiveness) of 1.05. This cooler environment has been shown to extend machine lives by 30% or longer.
As a result of the change in the business focus of the Company, the management felt it was in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders to change the name of the Company from Sandy Springs Holdings, Inc. to BitMine Immersion Technologies, Inc. to better reflect the new business focus of the Company.
Chairman of the Board Jonathan Bates was quoted as saying: “We feel the name change and the new ticker symbol accurately reflects new business focus as an institutional quality hosting service for mining companies, and operations as a Bitcoin Miner.”
BitMine Immersion Technologies recently signed its first client to a 3 year hosting agreement, becoming revenue positive in its second quarter of its 2022 fiscal year. Additionally, the Company sold this client several Bitcoin miners allowing it to expand its mining capacity, The Company is currently in talks with several large mining enterprises to fill its initial 50 MW capacity.
President Erik Nelson added: “I am very pleased with our recent addition of a new hosting client. This is our first step towards establishing a world class hosting company servicing Bitcoin miners. Additionally, our name change and symbol change should allow us to communicate our business to our customers as well as the investing public.”
