Exclusive: US regulators are in China for audit deal talks

HONG KONG, May 6 (Reuters) – US regulatory officials have arrived in Beijing seeking to settle a long-running dispute over the auditing compliance of US-listed Chinese firms, three people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The stand-off, if not resolved, could see Chinese firms kicked off New York bourses. This week the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) added over 80 firms, including e-commerce giant JD.com (9618.HK) and China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (600028.SS) to the list of companies facing possible expulsion. read more

The talks between officials from the US Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) and their counterparts at the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) can be described as a ‘late stage’ after China made concessions in recent months, people said.

The PCAOB officials are expected to exit quarantine and start working next week, one of the people said. If this visit proceeds as expected, the PCAOB is likely to send a larger team to China later this year to conduct on-site inspections of local auditors, the person said.

The PCAOB sent representatives to China for face-to-face negotiations earlier this year, said two of the people.

The sources declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the issue. The CSRC did not directly address Reuters queries about the arrival of PCAOB officials or the status of discussions.

The PCAOB did not respond to requests for comment prior to the original publication of this story on Friday.

Later a spokesman for the agency said in an email: “Recent reports that PCAOB officials are currently in China, or that PCAOB officials were in China earlier this year to conduct face-to-face negotiations, are untrue. The PCAOB has not sent any personnel to China since 2017. “

He added that the agency continues to engage with the Chinese authorities but “speculation about a final agreement remains premature.” As a result, the PCAOB is planning “for various scenarios,” the spokesman said.

Authorities in China have long been reluctant to let overseas regulators inspect local accounting firms, citing national security concerns.

But in a key concession, Chinese regulators last month proposed revising confidentiality rules for offshore listings and scrapping requirements that on-site inspections of overseas-listed Chinese firms were conducted mainly by domestic regulators. read more

Separate sources also said last month that a preliminary framework for audit supervision cooperation between the two countries has been formed. read more

The spat over audit oversight of New York-listed Chinese companies has been simmering for more than a decade but it came to a head last December when the SEC finalized rules to delist Chinese companies under the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act. It said there were 273 companies at risk but did not name them.

As of Friday, the PCAOB has identified 128 Chinese firms as at risk of being delisted.

The issue has been a major factor dragging on American depositary receipts (ADRs) issued by Chinese firms, with the Nasdaq Golden Dragon China Index tumbling 57% over the past 12 months.

Goldman Sachs estimated in March that US institutional investors held around $ 200 billion worth of Chinese ADRs.

In addition to the concessions by Chinese regulators, there have been other signs that a deal is in the offing.

In late March, sources said the CSRC asked some of the country’s US-listed firms, including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (9988.HK), Baidu Inc (9888.HK) and JD.com, to prepare for more audit disclosures. Late last month, Fang Xinghai, the CSRC’s vice chairman said he expected a deal in the near future.

Rallying Against New York Bitcoin Mining Moratorium

“This (Bitcoin) isn’t going to stop. Crypto mining may move somewhere where there is little or no concern for the environment. ” –Ken Pokalsky, Vice-President of The Business Council of New York State

Pokalsky’s words echoed the sentiments of the half-dozen speakers assembled at the New York State Capitol in Albany on May 2, 2022. Gathered on the Capitol’s famed “Million Dollar Staircase” were state legislators, Bitcoin industry leaders and advocates for technology jobs. The occasion was to urge Governor Kathy Hochul and the State Senate to oppose a two-year moratorium on proof-of-work mining. The bill has already passed the State Assembly.

Report on publicly listed mining firms

The Cointelegraph Research Terminal, the leading provider of premium databases and institutional-grade research on blockchain and digital assets, has added a new report to its expanding library. The latest paper looks at a particular group of players in the Bitcoin (BTC) mining industry. Published by crypto consulting firm Crypto Oxygen, the report highlights the current landscape of publicly listed crypto mining companies that control approximately 17% of the total hash rate of the entire Bitcoin network.

The crypto mining industry is a rapidly growing and evolving sector. In January this year, a United States-based company Core Scientific went public via a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) merger, making it the largest publicly traded crypto mining company in revenue and hash rate. Core Scientific’s hash rate leads all public companies with 8.3 exahashes per second (Eh / s), and it mined 5,769 BTC in 2021, generating about $ 545 million in revenue. Coming in second and third in terms of revenue are Riot Blockchain and Hive Blockchain Technologies, earning $ 215 million and $ 195 million, respectively.

Strategic, operational and financial breakdown

Hash rate and revenue are just a few ways to distinguish between companies, but they don’t paint the whole picture since some firms have revenue models separate from their core mining activity. The report dissects such key stats and offers a more detailed comparison, encompassing each company’s strategic, operational and financial performance.

Download the full report, complete with charts and infographics from the Cointelegraph Research Terminal

For instance, the report compares each company’s operations via the current hash rate per US dollar invested. This way, it becomes easier to see which company offers more investment value to investors, which, in this metric’s case, is Stronghold Digital Mining with 46.56 gigahashes per second (GH / s) to lead the pack.

Aside from this, the report also provides a quick snapshot of each company’s operations, including each one’s operational key performance indicators (KPIs,) business model, data center locations, BTC holdings and other pertinent information.

Specifically, major players like Marathon have lean setups and rely entirely on being hosted by external providers, while others like Stronghold own assets along with the full value chain, including the electrical infrastructure.

Rather than just depending solely on financial reports and public statements, Crypto Oxygen has also further conducted a survey to include direct feedback from the analyzed companies in its research.

Sustainability

A major concern of Bitcoin mining, in general, pertains to Environment, Social and Governance, or ESG. Sustainability has always been a central talking point concerning the crypto mining industry, and publicly listed companies are particularly subject to increased scrutiny. Yet, there seems to be a focus among the companies in the report on limiting the carbon footprint of their operations, despite the differences in approaches.
