“On a multi- Billion dollar balance sheet, we only have got a $200 Million loan that we have to collateralize. And we are 10x over-collateralized on it right now.
If the market traded down by a factor of 10, we’ve got cash and we generate cash flow.
The margin call is much ado about nothing, it’s just made me Twitter-famous. So I appreciate that. And the Twitter trolls love to beat up on me because it gets them engagement.”
In a margin call, a trader or investor is required to put up more funds to avert the closure or liquidation of a leveraged position.
The MicroStrategy CEO reveal most of the enterprise analytics software firm’s debt is manageable as it was taken out before interest prices were hiked.
“As for the company’s balance sheet strategy in general, we borrowed $2.2 Billion at a blended interest price of 1.8 percent before interest prices doubled…
If you had an opportunity to grab $2 Billion at 1.5 percent interest, it seems like a reasonable thing to do and I’m glad we did it. Most of it is unsecured debt – $1.7 Billion of it is unsecured. The $500 Million comes due in 7 years after we borrowed the money.
So we feel like we have a fortress balance sheet, we’re comfortable and the margin loan is well managed.”
