LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE) – October 23, 2023 – Ault Alliance, Inc. (NYSE American: AULT), a diversified holding company (“Ault Alliance,” or the “Company”), with core interests in crane rental, data center activities, and its technology and finance operations (“Ault Venture Group”), is pleased to report preliminary unaudited third quarter 2023 revenue exceeding $52.5 million.

Focus on Cash Flow-Generating Subsidiaries


The Company is working diligently to focus on its cash flow-generating subsidiaries. “We’re proud of the performance in our Circle 8 crane operations and our Sentinum data centers. Cash flow is improving, and we have an eye towards future profitability,” said Milton “Todd” Ault III, Executive Chairman of Ault Alliance.


Sentinum Bitcoin Mining Update


The annualized revenue run rate of Sentinum Bitcoin mining is currently approximately $32 million, many times greater than the current market capitalization of Ault Alliance as a whole. The Company is continually perplexed by the market’s inability to value any cash-producing assets within the Company and remains committed to the long-term value of its operations, including its Sentinum Bitcoin mining operations.


Sentinum is currently building out an additional data center site in Montana. Sentinum plans to use the Montana site as a hosting facility for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency miners.







Steady Advancements in Ault Venture Group and Defense Sector


The Ault Venture Group holds various public ownerships of companies and anticipates leveraging market opportunities over the next 12 months. GIGA, which does business as Gresham Worldwide, a defense company, reported revenue growth of over 12% from the last quarter. “The defense business, especially our Israeli division, is experiencing robust growth amidst the current conflict,” said Mr. Ault. The Company believes that GIGA is undervalued and is working with management to determine new strategic paths that may unlock the intrinsic value of the defense business and its subsidiaries.


Challenges at Ault Lending


Ault Lending faced challenges but shows early signs of stabilization. “We remain cautiously optimistic,” noted Mr. Ault. Revenues from our trading activities at Ault Lending includes net losses on equity securities, including unrealized gains and losses from market price changes. These gains and losses cause significant volatility in our periodic earnings.


Stabilization in Ault Global Real Estate Equities, Inc. Hotel Revenue


“Our Midwest hotel portfolio is showing stable seasonal revenue and hopes to capitalize on growing work travel trends and other opportunities in both Rockford, IL, and Madison, WI.,” said Mr. Ault. The Company previously announced that it seeks to sell the newly renovated hotels for approximately $100 million in addition to the decision to also list the St. Petersburg property for a $20 million asking price. The decision to list the properties is driven by the Company’s desire to focus on its core businesses.


Promising Outlook for BitNile Metaverse Business


While BitNile Metaverse is currently not contributing significantly to revenue, the Company anticipates increased revenue growth in its BitNile Metaverse business for 2024. “Starting from the ground up, we expect to see significant growth in this sector and will be announcing our future plans in the coming weeks,” added Mr. Ault.


Outlook for 2023


Ault Alliance projects a total consolidated revenue of $190-200 million for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023. “Our focus is on delivering a foundation of stable revenue with year-over-year growth,” concluded Mr. Ault.


Statement on Company’s Common Stock Performance


Mr. Ault notes that the performance of the Company’s common stock remains unacceptable. “We are working diligently to articulate the Company’s growth prospects to the market. We are making dramatic improvements across our business lines and are focused on building a more stable enterprise. While we maintain our belief in the holding company model, we are incredibly disappointed in the stock’s performance,” added Mr. Ault.
