Saylor tells his 2.1 million Twitter followers that MicroStrategy now owns a total of 125,051 BTC, which the company acquired for $3.78 billion at an average price of $30,200 per Bitcoin.
After releasing 2021 Q4 results, the CEO says MicroStrategy intends to continue buying Bitcoin even after impairment losses rose five-fold year-on-year.
Impairment losses enable asset holders to write off the difference between their carrying value and fair value after a decline in the fair value price.
The Q4 report says,
“MicroStrategy is the world’s largest publicly traded corporate owner of Bitcoin with over 125,000 Bitcoins. We will continue to evaluate opportunities to raise additional capital to execute on our Bitcoin acquisition strategy.
Operating expenses include impairment losses on MicroStrategy’s digital assets, which were $146.6 million during the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $26.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.”
MicroStrategy’s 125,051 Bitcoin trove is worth more than $4.61 billion at time of writing.
Saylor followed up his BTC purchase tweet with a simple message,
“The Bitcoin remains the same.”
