The company sold 704 BTC days after the acquisition for around $11.8 million. The sale price averaged around $16,776 per BTC, resulting in capital losses for MicroStrategy.

Both the sale and the purchase of the 2,500 BTC were done through MacroStrategy, a subsidiary of MicroStrategy, and brought the company’s total Bitcoin holdings to 132,500 BTC. The purchase was financed through the issuance and sale of 218,500 new shares, which brought around $46.4 million in proceeds to the company.
As of Dec. 27, the 132,500 BTC were acquired at an aggregate purchase price of just over $4 billion at an average price of Around $30,397 per BTC.
