Mining company TeraWulf would consider mergers with other industry players if such consolidation leads to greater profitability rather than simply expanding its business footprint. Kerri Langlais, TeraWulf’s chief strategy officer, points out that merely increasing the number of ASICs and mining farms is futile if it does not translate into profit growth.
Our success hinges not merely on the speed of our expansion but on the discerning allocation of capital to generate sustained returns for our shareholders,
Langlais stated.
She argues that this approach transparently shows shareholders and potential investors the difference between companies that grow organically and those that pursue artificial expansion of capacity. Langlais criticizes some firms for failing to adequately develop existing sites and enhance shareholder returns.

This comes against the backdrop of various companies attempting to absorb competitors through stock buyouts or merger agreements. For instance, Riot Platforms has made several attempts to purchase all shares of its rival Bitfarms, offering various financial incentives to sellers. Ultimately, it acquired at least 14.9% of the shares.

Unlike many competitors, TeraWulf has long diversified its operations across multiple sectors, including artificial intelligence and high-performance computing. This strategy is driven by the potential decrease in mining profitability due to factors like the halving event, increased competition, and rising electricity costs.
