MicroStrategy increases BTC holdings by 2,500 BTC

According to Microstrategy’s ‘current report pursuant to section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,’ Microstrategy has added as much as 2500 BTC to its bitcoin holding as of December 27, 2022, after a number of bitcoin transactions.

The bulk of the additional bitcoins was bought between November 1, 2022, and December 21, 2022, when the company purchased about 2395 bitcoins for about $42.8 million in cash. This translated to about $17,871 per bitcoin.

The company then sold 704 bitcoins for cash on December 22 for about $11.8 million at an average of $16,776 per bitcoin taking into account the expenses and net fees. Microstrategy however plans to carry back capital losses that resulted from this transaction against previous capital gains. The federal income tax laws that are currently in place avail for such carrybacks, which could generate a tax benefit for the company.

Microstrategy then went ahead to purchase an additional 810 bitcoin on December 24, 2022, just before Christmas, for about $13.6 million at an average cost of $16,845 per bitcoin.
