Bitcoin miner Core Scientific has received approval from the Southern District of Texas bankruptcy court to take out a $70 million loan from investment bank B. Riley, one of the company’s largest creditors. The loan will be used to repay the original debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing loan, also from B. Riley. Core Scientific aims to replace the original DIP loan with better terms and more flexibility in the Chapter 11 process. The company plans to use $35 million to repay the initial loan, with the remaining funds available for future borrowings. Core Scientific’s motion stated that the new loan was secured through extensive marketing and tough negotiations with multiple prospective lenders. It has been approved by both the creditors’ and shareholders’ committees. This ensures the company has enough funds to run its operations and manage its assets during the Chapter 11 proceedings. B. Riley, which offered Core Scientific $72 million in financing in December to keep the company afloat, has been working with the miner to restructure its debt and provide liquidity. The bank believes there is a solution to the Bitcoin miner’s financial struggles, which it attributes to an “aggressive, ill-conceived strategy.” B. Riley has taken significant actions to find a solution, including taking on debt on unencumbered assets. Bank encourages Core Scientific Board to find solutions for all parties through engagement with creditors quickly. However, Core Scientific did not respond to the offer at that time. As of September 30th, Core Scientific, the largest publicly traded bitcoin miner, had $1.3 billion in liabilities, the highest debt in the industry. On December 21st, the company filed for bankruptcy. The court approved a $37.5 million loan with 10% interest on December 23rd, with another $37.5 million available in January.
