MicroStrategy Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

TYSONS CORNER, Va.–()–MicroStrategy® (Nasdaq: MSTR), the largest independent publicly-traded business intelligence company, today announced financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2021 (the second quarter of its 2021 fiscal year).

“MicroStrategy continued its strong 2021 by delivering an outstanding operational performance across the board and completing another successful capital raise to expand our digital asset holdings. We had one of our best operational quarters in our software business in years, highlighted by 13% revenue growth. Our success in the market is being driven by the investments we have made and the broad adoption of our innovative MicroStrategy platform,” said Michael J. Saylor, CEO, MicroStrategy Incorporated.

“We continue to be pleased by the results of the implementation of our digital asset strategy. Our latest capital raise allowed us to expand our digital holdings, which now exceed 105,000 bitcoins. Going forward, we intend to continue to deploy additional capital into our digital asset strategy.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Revenues: Total revenues for the second quarter of 2021 were $125.4 million, a 13.4% increase, or a 10.1% increase on a non-GAAP constant currency basis, compared to the second quarter of 2020.

  • Operating Expenses: Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2021 were $516.6 million, a 543.6% increase compared to the second quarter of 2020.

  • Digital Assets: As of June 30, 2021, the carrying value of MicroStrategy’s digital assets (comprised of approximately 105,085 bitcoins) was $2.051 billion, which reflects cumulative impairment losses of $689.6 million since acquisition and an average carrying amount per bitcoin of approximately $19,518. As of June 30, 2021, the non-GAAP digital asset cost basis and non-GAAP calculation of the market value of MicroStrategy’s bitcoin were $2.741 billion and $3.653 billion, respectively, which reflects an average cost per bitcoin of approximately $26,080 and a market price per bitcoin of $34,763.47. MacroStrategy LLC, a subsidiary of MicroStrategy, holds approximately 92,079 of the bitcoins.
  • Senior Secured Notes: In June 2021, MicroStrategy issued $500.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6.125% Senior Secured Notes due 2028 (the “2028 Secured Notes”). The 2028 Secured Notes are unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, on a senior secured basis by MicroStrategy Services Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of MicroStrategy and certain subsidiaries of MicroStrategy that may be formed or acquired on or after June 14, 2021. The 2028 Secured Notes bear interest at a fixed rate of 6.125% per annum, payable semiannually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year, beginning on December 15, 2021. The 2028 Secured Notes have a stated maturity date of June 15, 2028, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased in accordance with their terms and subject to a springing maturity date of September 15, 2025 or November 16, 2026 under certain circumstances. The 2028 Secured Notes contain various customary covenants, including limitations with respect to indebtedness, liens, payment of dividends, investments, disposition of assets, mergers and acquisitions, and transactions with affiliates. The total net proceeds from the 2028 Secured Notes offering, after deducting initial purchaser discounts and issuance costs, were approximately $487.2 million. As of June 30, 2021, the carrying value of the 2028 Secured Notes was $487.3 million, net of unamortized issuance costs, and was classified as a long-term liability in the “Long-term debt, net” line item in MicroStrategy’s Consolidated Balance Sheet.

The tables at the end of this press release include a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. An explanation of non-GAAP financial measures is also included under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below. Additional non-GAAP financial measures are included in MicroStrategy’s “Q2 2021 Earnings Presentation,” which will be available under the “Events and Presentations” section of MicroStrategy’s investor relations website at https://www.microstrategy.com/en/investor-relations.

CFO Search

With MicroStrategy’s management team focusing on two corporate strategies – growing its enterprise analytics software business and acquiring and holding bitcoin – and with the increase in its public profile and operational complexity, MicroStrategy plans to engage in a search for a Chief Financial Officer to complement the management team and allow Phong Le to focus on his role as President, running the day-to-day business of MicroStrategy.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

MicroStrategy is providing supplemental financial measures for (i) non-GAAP income from operations that excludes the impact of share-based compensation expense and impairment losses and gains on sale from intangible assets, which include its digital assets, (ii) non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share that exclude the impact of share-based compensation expense, impairment losses and gains on sale from intangible assets, which include its digital assets, interest expense arising from the amortization of debt issuance costs related to MicroStrategy’s long-term debt, and related income tax effects, (iii) non-GAAP digital asset cost basis as reported excluding cumulative impairment losses and a non-GAAP calculation of market value of MicroStrategy’s bitcoin holdings based on the market price of one bitcoin in its principal market at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the last day of each period (see below for a more detailed explanation of the calculation and limitations applicable to this market value metric), and (iv) non-GAAP constant currency revenues that exclude foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. These supplemental financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and, as a result, these supplemental financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to help understand, manage, and evaluate business performance and to help make operating decisions.

MicroStrategy believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are also useful to investors and analysts in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis. The first supplemental financial measure excludes (i) a significant non-cash expense that MicroStrategy believes is not reflective of its general business performance, and for which the accounting requires management judgment and the resulting share-based compensation expense could vary significantly in comparison to other companies and (ii) significant impairment losses and gains on sale from intangible assets, which include MicroStrategy’s bitcoin. The second set of supplemental financial measures excludes the impact of (i) share-based compensation expense, (ii) impairment losses and gains on sale from intangible assets, which include MicroStrategy’s bitcoin, (iii) non-cash interest expense arising from the amortization of debt issuance costs related to MicroStrategy’s long-term debt, and (iv) related income tax effects. The third set of supplemental financial measures provides MicroStrategy’s digital asset balances, as reported excluding non-cash cumulative impairment losses and discloses a non-GAAP calculation of market value of its bitcoin holdings based on the market price of one bitcoin in its principal market at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the last day of each period (see below for a more detailed explanation of the calculation and limitations applicable to this market value metric). MicroStrategy believes this is useful to investors and analysts in comparing the value of its bitcoin holdings. The fourth set of supplemental financial measures excludes changes resulting from fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates so that results may be compared to the same period in the prior year on a non-GAAP constant currency basis. MicroStrategy believes the use of these non-GAAP financial measures can also facilitate comparison of MicroStrategy’s operating results to those of its competitors.

MicroStrategy will be discussing its second quarter 2021 financial results on a live Video Webinar today beginning at approximately 5:00 p.m. EDT.

The amounts reported as “Market Value” in the above table represent only a mathematical calculation consisting of the price for one bitcoin reported in MicroStrategy’s principal market at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the last day of each period multiplied by the number of bitcoins held by MicroStrategy at the end of the applicable period. The Securities and Exchange Commission has previously made findings that there has not been a demonstration that (i) bitcoin and bitcoin markets are inherently resistant to manipulation or that the spot price of bitcoin may not be subject to fraud and manipulation; and (ii) adequate surveillance-sharing agreements with bitcoin-related markets are in place, as bitcoin-related markets are either not significant, not regulated, or both. Accordingly, the Market Value amounts reported below may not accurately represent fair market value, and the actual fair market value of MicroStrategy’s bitcoin may be different from such amounts and such deviation may be material. Moreover, (i) the bitcoin market historically has been characterized by significant volatility in price, limited liquidity and trading volumes compared to sovereign currencies markets, relative anonymity, a developing regulatory landscape, potential susceptibility to market abuse and manipulation, and various other risks that are, or may be, inherent in its entirely electronic, virtual form and decentralized network and (ii) MicroStrategy may not be able to sell its bitcoins at the “Market Value” indicated below, at the market price as reported in its principal market on the date of sale, or at all.

The “Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Impact” reflects the estimated impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates on international revenues. It shows the increase (decrease) in international revenues from the same period in the prior year, based on comparisons to the prior year quarterly average foreign currency exchange rates. The term “international” refers to operations outside of the United States and Canada.

(2)

The “Non-GAAP Constant Currency” reflects the current period GAAP amount, less the Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Impact.

(3)

The “Non-GAAP Constant Currency % Change” reflects the percentage change between the current period Non-GAAP Constant Currency amount and the GAAP amount for the same period in the prior year.
