(NASDAQ:MIGI) (“Mawson”), a digital infrastructure provider, is pleased to announce it has signed a new hosting co-location agreement for approximately 100 megawatt (MW) and associated debt facility with Celsius Mining LLC (“Celsius Mining”).

James Manning, CEO and Founder of Mawson, said, “We are delighted to have signed our largest hosting co-location customer to date, and look forward to working closely with Celsius Mining moving forward. The industry is experiencing a shortage of energy and energy infrastructure – having focused as a business on ‘Infrastructure First’ long ago, this enables us to take on strategic customers in our hosting co-location business. Demand and inbound enquiry for hosting continues to rise, and we look forward to updating stockholders on this front further in due course.”
Amir Ayalon, CEO of Celsius Mining, said, “We see this as a win-win situation for both Celsius Mining and Mawson. We appreciate the uniqueness of Mawson’s operational capabilities and look forward to working closely together.”
