Business Description

Edge Data Solutions, Inc. (the “Company,” “Edge”), a Delaware Corporation, believes it is aimed to be an industry-leading edge data center, cryptocurrency mining and cloud infrastructure provider. Edge’s unique Edge Performance Platform (EPP) brings sustainable next-generation immersion-cooled high-performance computing to where it is needed most.

Compared to air-cooled solutions, Edge’s EPP offers reduced carbon footprint and increased ROI through:

  ? Energy Efficiency - Environmentally friendly, lower PuE, lower operating costs
  ? Scalability - Easy, rapid and flexible deployment
  ? High-density - More computing power in a much smaller footprint
  ? Reduced CapEx - Longer equipment life, efficient structure
  ? Boosted Computing Power - Highly conducive environment for optimization
    without stressing equipment


EPP serves efficient next-generation immersion-cooled computing power for a variety of applications, including sustainable cryptocurrency mining, edge computing. Long-term, opting for EPP significantly reduces investment, and certain edge computing applications require less up-front investment.

Industries that will benefit from low-latency technology with a lower carbon footprint include cryptocurrency mining, public and private cloud providers, data centers, high-performance computing providers, virtual desktop infrastructure providers, telecom, cybersecurity and disaster recovery providers, streaming providers, artificial intelligence innovators, colleges, hospitals, governments, and enterprise blockchain infrastructure providers.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. However, the above conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to do so. New business opportunities may never emerge, and we may not be able to sufficiently fund the pursuit of new business opportunities should they arise.

Ash or March 31, 2022we had approximately $1,517,613 or cash on hand. Currently, cash required to sustain core operations each month is $225,000, excluding one-time expenses, and we anticipate that cash requirement will increase significantly over the next twelve months. We have few customers and are highly dependent on revenue growth and may require significant additional capital to continue to execute on our business plan. Any lack of sufficiently profitable sales, changes in market conditions, or difficulty obtaining capital could be detrimental to operations and our efforts to execute on the business plan.

Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:

$6,593,030 from operations, compared to $50,843 for the three months ended March 31, 2021an increase of $6,542,187 or 12.867%. This increase is a result of the sale of data center solutions.

The future trends of all expenses are expected to be primarily driven by the Company’s ability to execute its business plans.

There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in doing so.

$1,517,613as compared to a balance of $831,209as or December 31, 2021† The increase in cash for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was attributable to net cash provided by operating activities of $915,484$118,905 of net cash used in investing activities, and net cash used in financing activities of $110,175

As reported in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company generated net income of
$1,209,791 and incurred a net loss of $122,871, respectively. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to continue to generate sufficiently profitable revenue and its ability to raise capital in the event it does not generate revenue. It intends to finance its future operating activities and its near-term working capital needs through the sale of immersion-cooled data center solutions and through additional capital. The sale of equity and entry into other future financing arrangements may result in dilution to stockholders and those securities may have rights senior to those of common shares. If the Company raises additional funds through the issuance of convertible notes or other debt financing, these activities or other debt could contain covenants that would restrict the Company’s operations. Any other third-party funding arrangements could require the Company to relinquish valuable rights. The Company will require additional capital beyond its currently anticipated needs. Additional capital, if available, may not be available on reasonable terms or at all.

While the Company has generated revenues, its revenues are currently comprised of few customers, and the loss of any significant customer could be detrimental to its ability to execute on its business plan. The Company expects to continue to generate sufficiently profitable revenues, but there can be no assurance that it will be successful in these efforts. The future trends of all expenses are expected to be primarily driven by the Company’s ability to execute its business plans and continue to generate revenue. Furthermore, the Company’s ability to continue to fund operating expenses will depend on its ability to generate sufficient revenues and raise any necessary capital. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in doing so.

and $4,627,335respectively, for a decrease of $1,878,600, or 41%. The significant change in the Company’s financial condition is attributable to the delivery of data center solutions and repayments and conversions of convertible debt during the three months ended March 31, 2022

$831,209 to $1,517,613 during the three months ended March 31, 2022
