CEO Torbjørn Bull Jenssen comments:

"Q3 has been an important quarter for Arcane. We have successfully launched our mining business, using renewable energy, and are on track to become cash flow positive from the start of next year, given current market conditions. We have hired a new CFO and are now in the process of appointing new board members, including a very experienced chairman.

We see an increased upside in Pure Digital and LN Markets, two of our portfolio companies, and have made important progress on the new unified Arcane platform, launching the first iteration together with this report. While this first version mostly looks like a new design, a lot of the heavy lifting on the backend has already been done and new features and products will be rolled out efficiently on the platform over the coming quarters."
