Raising $600 million

MicroStrategy had previously announced on March 13 that it planned to raise an additional $600 million through a private offering of convertible notes. These senior convertible notes can be converted into shares at a later date and have a maturity date of March 15, 2031.

Saylor, who is known as a staunch supporter of Bitcoin, has indicated that he has no plans to sell the company’s Bitcoin stock. “I’m going to buy the top forever. Bitcoin is the exit strategy,” Saylor stated in response to questions about the company’s sales plans.
