Bitcoin Depot Announces Investment From Sopris Capital

ATLANTA, April 25, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bitcoin Depot (NASDAQ: BTM), a U.S.-based Bitcoin ATM operator and leading fintech company, today announced a strategic investment from Sopris Capital , a 20-year-old multi-strategy investment firm. As part of the investment, Sopris Capital has purchased 2,906,976 Class A common shares and is now one of the Company`s largest independent shareholders.

“We are thrilled to own part of a growing, market-leading business at such a compelling valuation. We look forward to collaborating with Bitcoin Depot as they pursue their numerous growth initiatives,” said Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of Sopris Capital.

“We’re excited to welcome Sopris Capital as a strategic investor to help accelerate our growth,” said Bitcoin Depot CEO Brandon Mintz. “With their extensive network of valuable relationships and experience in the cryptocurrency space, Sopris Capital is a fantastic fit for us. Most importantly, they understand our mission and our value proposition.”

In March of this year Sopris Capital purchased 50 kiosks to become a partner in Bitcoin Depot`s Franchise Program, which allowed Sopris to leverage Bitcoin Depot`s operating expertise and receive a passive income stream from its Bitcoin ATMs.

“The investment reinforces the confidence we have in Bitcoin Depot’s strategy and growth potential, which we believe is not reflected in the current public market valuation given their underlying unit economics and ability to redeploy capital at a high return,” said Sopris Capital Vice President Dan Wedman.

Bitcoin Depot’s products and services provide an intuitive, quick, and convenient process for converting cash into Bitcoin, giving users the ability to access the broader digital financial system, including using their Bitcoin for purposes of making payments, transfers, remittances, online purchases, and investments.

This news marks the latest show of momentum for Bitcoin Depot, which holds the largest market BTM share in North America, with over 7,400 Bitcoin ATM locations. The announcement follows several recent milestones and expansions for the company, including its first partnership with a major grocery chain as well as the advancement of its newly launched profit share program in April 2024. The company also recently surpassed its goal of signing 8,000 BTM locations ahead of schedule to achieve the largest installed fleet of locations in its history and announced expansions into new markets, including Puerto Rico and Australia.
