The notes, unsecured and senior obligations of MicroStrategy, will bear semi-annual interest payable on March 15 and September 15, commencing September 15, 2024. Set to mature on March 15, 2031, the notes may be redeemed by MicroStrategy on or after March 22, 2028, subject to certain conditions.

Investors will have the option to convert the notes into cash, shares of MicroStrategy’s class A common stock, or a combination thereof. Conversion before September 15, 2030, will occur based on specific events and periods, while after that date, conversion will be unrestricted until two days before the maturity date.

Proceeds from the offering will primarily fund the acquisition of additional bitcoin and support general corporate purposes, the announcement stated.
