MicroStrategy announces another senior notes offering to buy more bitcoin

Share This Post

MicroStrategy’s not done buying up bitcoin — or, rather, offering convertible senior notes to do so. 

The company, on Wednesday, announced that it was proposing another offering — this time for $500 million — of convertible senior notes due in 2031. The company added that it could raise an additional $75 million from the offer.

​​MicroStrategy also expects to grant to the initial purchasers of the notes an option to purchase, within a 13-day period beginning on, and including, the date on which the notes are first issued, up to an additional $75 million aggregate principal amount of the notes,” a press release said.

The company said the funds from the sale will be used to “acquire additional bitcoin and for general corporate purposes.”

The sale will only be offered to institutional investors.

The offering comes just after it proposed an initial offering of $600 million worth of convertible notes, which it later upsized to $700 million.

The previous convertible note offering closed on March 8. 

The company announced on Monday that it had closed the $800 million offering of 0.625% senior convertible notes due in 2030.

‘The aggregate principal amount of the notes sold in the offering was $800 million,” the company said.

Earlier this week, the company announced that it bought 12,000 more bitcoin for $821 million. The purchases were made from Feb. 26 through March 10, a filing showed. MicroStrategy holds roughly 205,000 bitcoin.

The company’s stock was slightly down in after-hours trading Wednesday, hovering around $1,735 a share. It closed the market day up roughly, continuing an upward trend.

Over the past year, it’s up 676%. In the past five days alone, the stock has soared 41%. 

MicroStrategy’s most recent proposed note offering follows on the coattails of Coinbase, which announced a proposed offering of $1 billion in senior convertible notes Tuesday evening. 

The company said that it would be using the proceeds for general corporate purposes, according to a press release.
