“In our third-quarter results report, we told our investors that we would continue to purchase miners from a variety of sources, as dictated by the expected return on investment and available capacity, and that is what we did over the last two weeks,” announced Greg Beard, the company’s co-chairman and CEO.

On the news of the equipment acquisition, the company's shares fell by 15% to $10,69 during the main session on Monday, December 20.
