Bitcoin Miner Iris Energy Says Some Machines Aren't Covering Financing Costs

Bitcoin miner Iris Energy (IREN) said some of its mining equipment, owned by special purpose vehicles, isn't producing enough cash to meet its financing obligations.

The firm also said Wednesday that the equipment has a market value "well below the principal amount of the relevant loans," and the company is in talks with the lender.

The special purpose vehicles are not guaranteed by the parent company.

IREN shares fell over 5% in pre-market trading.
