About Canaan

Canaan’s products are primarily used by bitcoin miners, with the crypto-currency trend on the rise. However, the company generated$5.9 million in revenue in the 4th quarter of 2020, which accounted for an 82% decrease year over year. At the present stage, CAN has secured $174 million worth in contracts, due to which it will run at capacity for full-year 2021, however, cannibalized sales of the old product has halted further growth for the company

Mr. Nangeng Zhang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canaan, commented, “We have changed our operations model in 2021. Previously we were selling bitcoin mining machines mostly to individual mining operators who may not have longer-term planning. In late 2020, we shifted our client base to mostly publicly traded companies and bitcoin-focused investment funds which tend to place sizable orders with longer-term commitment. As a result, we can now forecast our revenue much more precisely”.

The semiconductor company predicts to generate a minimum $61 million in the first quarter of 2021, keeping in line the production orders due to high demands for cryptocurrency hardware, with the company focusing heavily on research and development of advanced technology, such as AI chips.

This forecast depicts the Company’s current outlook on the market, which are subject to changes, due to the volatility of this business. However, with high demand of its product, Canaan will be manufacturing its products at capacity, throughout the rest of 2021.
