Details of Core Scientific’s reorganization plan

According to the terms of the Chapter 11 plan, current shareholders will retain approximately 60% of the company’s shares. The plan also aims to reduce millions of dollars in debt from the company’s balance sheet and provide full recovery to all classes of creditors. Judge Christopher Lopez highlighted the excellent expected recovery for both unsecured creditors and shareholders.

Job preservation and future prospects

The plan is expected to preserve over 240 jobs within the company. Adam Sullivan, CEO of Core Scientific, expressed optimism about the company’s future, citing the growing demand for Bitcoin and high-value computing calculations.

Core Scientific is one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency miners, having produced over 13,700 Bitcoin mined by themselves and 5,500 BTC from co-located miners in 2023. However, facing an extended bear market, rising energy prices, increased mining difficulty, and bad debts to crypto firm Celsius, Core Scientific filed for bankruptcy in December 2022.

The company was previously listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol ‘CORZ’, but was delisted due to the bankruptcy proceedings.

Core Scientific’s restructuring facilitated by Bitcoin price rebound

The Core Scientific restructuring plan was facilitated in part by a substantial increase in the price of Bitcoin and hash rates since the bankruptcy filing in December 2022. This price rebound has helped the company stabilize its financial situation and prepare for a new phase of growth.
