  • MicroStrategy says it has two missions as a company: develop business intelligence software and buy bitcoin

A day after MicroStrategy announced that it was planning a debt offering of $600 million to buy more bitcoin, the company revised that offering to add $300 million to the amount on the note bringing the total to $900 million. 

MicroStrategy said that the notes for this bitcoin buy would not bear any interest and would mature on February 15, 2027. The company also said that purchasers will be able to exercise a discretionary buy of an additional $150 million in notes. Should these additional discretionary notes be sold, the company will have an additional $1 billion to purchase more bitcoin. 

According to the offering, the notes will be worth 0.6981 shares of MicroStrategy class A common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, worth approximately $1,432.46 per share. This represents a premium of about 50 percent over the Feb. 16 trading price of MicroStrategy at $955. 

“Bitcoin never sleeps, pal,” CEO Michael Saylor tweeted Thursday morning.
