Thus, the new assets added to Michael Saylor’s company treasury are already yielding a profit of $12.8 million. As of the new purchase, MicroStrategy will accumulate 108,992 BTC in cash, equivalent to $5.2 billion.

Thanks to the BTC’s valuation and the recurring purchases that MicroStrategy makes, its bitcoin reserve has practically doubled in value equivalent to the dollar, as the coins had an aggregate cost of US$2.9 billion — being $26,700 per unit.

According to the statement sent to the SEC, the investment was made possible through the sale of 238,053 class A common shares of ATM Facility, which generated net income of approximately $177.5 million.
