This move, funded largely by a recently concluded $782 million convertible debt offering, brings MicroStrategy's total Bitcoin holdings to 205,000 BTC.

Software giant MicroStrategy (MSTR) closed its recent acquisition of 12,000 additional bitcoins (BTC) for $821.7 million, at $68,477 per coin.

MicroStrategy, led by fervent Bitcoin advocate Michael Saylor, now boasts a substantial Bitcoin treasury, totaling 205,000 BTC valued at approximately $14.73 billion. 

This latest acquisition was made possible by the funds raised through the company's recent convertible debt offering. Before this purchase, MicroStrategy held approximately 193,000 BTC, acquired at an average price of $31,544 per coin. 

Successful Debt Offering

The convertible debt offering, which included a 0.625% coupon and a substantial conversion premium, was well-received in the market. Originally set at $800 million, the offering was increased to meet demand, resulting in approximately $782 million in net proceeds to MicroStrategy.

The recent acquisition of Bitcoin, totaling $821.7 million, was funded using proceeds from the debt offering along with excess cash reserves.

The investment in Bitcoin aligns with MicroStrategy's belief in the cryptocurrency as an attractive long-term investment asset, Michael Saylor said in a recent X post

BTC hitting an all-time high above $72,000 boosted MicroStrategy shares nearly 10% in premarket trading to $1,558.
