The company made this known in a February 6 press release announcing its financial results for the period. According to the statement, the company had purchased 31,755 BTC since the end of the third quarter of 2023.

Phong Le, MicroStrategy President and CEO said in a statement that 2023 was a wonderful year for the company as it raised capital to increase its Bitcoin investments.
“We achieved double-digit subscription services revenue growth for both the fourth quarter and full year, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to transition our business to the cloud. We believe that the combination of our operating structure, bitcoin strategy, and focus on technology innovation provides a unique opportunity for value creation for our shareholders,” said Le.
The most recent additions, according to MicroStrategy CFO Andrew Kang, represented the company’s 13th consecutive quarter of Bitcoin purchases and its biggest quarterly rise in Bitcoin holdings in three years.
In addition to using its cash on hand and strategic capital markets actions to directly acquire BTC, Kang stated that the company also profited from a rise in Bitcoin prices in the last quarter of 2023.
Also, the founder and chairman of MicroStrategy, Michael Saylor pointed out that the company purchased an additional 850 Bitcoins in January at $37.2 million.
