MicroStrategy is seeking to raise an additional $400 million by offering senior secured notes to purchase more Bitcoin, according to a June 7 press release:

MicroStrategy intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes to acquire additional bitcoins.

In its recent filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the company also reported an impairment loss of at least $284.5 million related to its previous Bitcoin buys.

In February, MicroStrategy raised a whopping $1.05 billion and then used the nine-figure sum to buy more Bitcoin within the same month.
