MicroStrategy Seeks to Sell $500M of Stock to Finance Bitcoin Purchases

Microstategy BTC
MicroStrategy (MSTR), a business software developer, has filed with the SEC for an IPO with a maximum value of $500 million, stating that some of the funds raised will be used to purchase further Bitcoin. The prospectus stated that the company plans to use the net proceeds from the sale “for general corporate activities,” which includes the purchase of Bitcoin.
MicroStrategy founder Michael Saylor, who just stepped down as CEO to become executive chairman and focus on Bitcoin purchases, is not backing off his grandiose aim to transform the company into a crypto proxy. Since 2020, he has spent over $2 billion on over 130,000 bitcoin that he bought with money from stock and bond deals.

A Bitcoin maximalist, Saylor, has pointed out that the corporation has thousands of Bitcoin it may pledge as security if necessary, even though the business software firm acquired a $205 million term loan from Silvergate in March to purchase further bitcoin possibly.
During an earnings call, MicroStrategy’s chief financial officer Andrew Kang indicated that the business has about 85,000 bitcoin that have not been pledged as collateral, providing more than enough to cover the ongoing needs of its Silvergate term loan through “any expected market volatility.”
