MicroStrategy to Sell $500M in Stock for Bitcoin Purchase

MicroStrategy has revealed plans to offer $500 million in convertible senior notes that are set to mature in 2032. This move will consist of a private offering aimed at qualified institutional buyers. The offering will be conducted in accordance with Rule 144A of the Securities Act of 1933, and will be dependent on prevailing market conditions along with other influential factors.

The notes are designed to be unsecured senior obligations of MicroStrategy. They will accrue interest, which will be payable semi-annually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 each year, starting December 15, 2024. The notes are slated to mature on June 15, 2032, unless they are repurchased, redeemed, or converted earlier in accordance with the specified terms.

In terms of proceeds and strategic objectives, the company intends to use the net proceeds primarily to acquire additional Bitcoin (BTC). This strategy aligns with MicroStrategy’s long-term ambition of utilizing BTC as its treasury reserve asset. The company expects to offer initial purchasers an option to buy an additional $75 million worth of notes.

MicroStrategy has also laid out stipulations for redemption. If the company chooses to redeem fewer than all the outstanding notes, there must be at least $75 million in aggregate principal amount of notes remaining outstanding and not subject to redemption as of the relevant redemption notice date.
