Miner Maker Canaan Q2 Report Reveals 160% Revenue Increase But The Still At a Net Loss
Canaan, one of the leading manufacturers of bitcoin mining machines, has released an unaudited financial report for the second quarter of 2020. The information that was released on August 31st suggested a profitable quarter and even a gross profit for a year over year. However, the firm is still at a net loss, despite two profitable quarters. The net loss stems from those incurred over 2019.
Canaan also conducted its IPO last year in November with a target fund of $400 million, out of which the bitcoin mining rig manufacturer raised 25% of the target amount. The outbreak of the pandemic had quite an adverse effect on the company’s share price, which is currently valued at $2.19, down by almost 75% from its public sale price of $9.
The unaudited report also revealed that the company sold about 2.6 million THash/s worth of computing power for the ASIC mining machine in the second quarter. The amount of hash-power sold by the company has nearly tripled from the first quarter’s figure of 0.90 million THash/s. As an added note, the sales figures for this quarter have dropped by 18% from the last year.
The revenue generated by the company in the second quarter stood at RMB 178.1 million ($25.2 million), which is also up by 160% compared to the first quarter, but declined by 25% when compared to the last year.
The gross profit generated by the company in this quarter stood at RMB 43.3 million, equivalent to $6.1 million, seeing an increase of almost 300% year on year, and over 1,700% when compared to Q1.
The gross margin has seen a significant bump in all parameters, where it was up by 25% when compared to last quarter against just 4.2% in 2019.
