GRAYSCALE BITCOIN TRUST (BTC) : Other Events, Financial Statements and Exhibits (form 8-K)

10/21/2021 | 04:12pm EST

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On October 20, 2021, the board (the "Board") of Grayscale Investments, LLC, the sponsor (the "Sponsor") of Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (BTC) (the "Trust"), approved the purchase by Digital Currency Group, Inc. ("DCG"), the parent company of the Sponsor, of up to $1 billion worth of shares of the Trust. Subsequently, DCG authorized such purchase. This increases DCG's prior authorization to purchase up to $750 million worth of shares by $250 million. Through October 19, 2021, DCG has purchased $388 million worth of shares. DCG plans to use cash on hand to fund the purchases and will make the purchases on the open market, at management's discretion, in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"). The share purchase authorization does not obligate DCG to acquire any specific number of shares in any period, and may be expanded, extended, modified, or discontinued at any time. The actual timing, amount and value of share purchases will depend entirely upon a number of factors, including the levels of cash available, price, and prevailing market conditions. DCG will not effect any purchases while the Trust is engaged in private placement activities or immediately prior to the commencement of such activities. Information regarding stock purchases will be available in the Trust's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Forms 10-K and 10-Q as required by the applicable rules of the Exchange Act. A copy of the press release announcing DCG's plan to purchase shares of the Trust is attached to this Report as Exhibit 99.1.
