SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK), ("CleanSpark, or "the Company"), an advanced software and controls technology solutions company focused on solving modern energy challenges, has become aware of a report making false accusations against CleanSpark and its officers.  The publisher of this false report is an unknown entity or group hidden behind the facade of "Culper Research," which disguises the identity of the actual author(s).

CleanSpark Investigates Anonymous Short Seller

The apparent purpose of the Culper Research "report" is to cover or profit from the publisher's short positions in the Company, which the publisher expressly acknowledges holding in the report itself.  Holders of short positions trade on an expected decline in the price of a stock.  Such holders only profit on such positions when the stock declines and incur potentially unlimited losses if the price does not decline.

CleanSpark takes seriously any accusations of impropriety, stands behind its prior statements and disclosures, and will not tolerate unfounded and reckless claims against the Company. CleanSpark has retained the law firm of Wilk Auslander LLP in connection with this matter and will be vigilant in investigating the sources of these misrepresentations, including the identity of those veiled behind the entity calling itself Culper Research.  We are aware that litigation premised on the so-called "Culper Report" has been filed and that plaintiff's firms are trolling for additional shareholders. The Company will vigorously and relentlessly defend itself against these actions and against the kind of baseless accusations made by those behind the "report."  We also invite anyone who has any information regarding the persons or entities behind Culper Research to contact the Company at the Investor Relations email address or contact number provided below.

For accurate information about the Company, Shareholders should refer to the Company's disclosure documents filed with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available online under the Company's EDGAR profile at www.sec.gov or on the Investor Relations tab of the Company's website at www.CleanSpark.com.
