The company’s Bitcoin holdings are worth over $6 billion at press time, meaning that Michael Saylor’s bid to accumulate as much crypto as possible has already nearly doubled in value.
And while many were struck with yet another big purchase made in less than two weeks, it’s worth noting that the company didn’t use any of its revenue or profits from its software business. In its filing with the SEC, MicroStrategy said that it issued and sold just under 120,000 shares for $82.4 million, at an average gross price per share of approximately $693.1.
The shares were issued under the Open Market Sale Agreement the company made with Jefferies in June this year. The agreement allows MicroStrategy to issue and sell shares of its Class A common stock through Jefferies from time to time in a bid to raise up to $1 billion.
