CLEARING UP THE SAYLOR FUD
As BTC plunges, expect massive amount of Saylor FUD – that this man will be forced to sell.
The situation is not as dire – let me explain
>[2/N] The latest bond issuance will only be senior secured on the BTC that he plans to accumulate on the proceeds from this issuance.
I.E – Even if this 400M bid fails to support the market and there is liquidation – the 92,079 of BTC held will *NOT* be at risk.
>[3/N] Lets take a further look at his capital structure – in particular the debt component.
He has 2 currently outstanding bonds – One is a zero coupon 2027 Maturity Convertible bond, the other is a 0.75% coupon 2025 Maturity Convertible bond
>[4/N] This is the information on both bonds:
Only the 2025 bond requires interest to be paid on it.
The outstanding amount is 650M – This is 0.75% of interest paid S/A – I.E – the annual interest payment is only 4.875M and each time is 2.4375M
>[5/N] Their main business makes about ~50M in net profit – basically, Saylor makes enough money to cover the annual interest by 10X.
– This means that from now till 2025 at least, Saylor CANNOT be liquidated as long as he pays the interest on the 0.75% 2025 bond.
>[6/N] **”But oh no! what if the board forces saylor to sell?**
Saylor himself owns 25% of microstrategy but he also owns the majority of Class B shares which have 10x voting power giving him 72% of the voting power. I.E Saylor *CANNOT* be forced by anybody to sell.
>[7/N] Don’t take my word for it though.

>[8/N] **In conclusion;**
>**1. The latest round of purchase will not have the ability to liquidate his previous holdings**
>**2. The interest payment on his bonds CANNOT liquidate him**
>**3. Nobody has the power to force him to sell. At All.**
>[END] Truth is, Saylor has way more diamond hands than you. He took real life leverage that cant get him liquidated while you took leverage on a 100 vol asset using the underlying as collateral.
He rode his stock from 3130 to 11 USD [-99.6%] and survived. This is a blip.
