Core Scientific (NASDAQ:CORZ) stock is a hot topic on Thursday after the Bitcoin (BTC-USD) mining company rejected a takeover offer from CoreWeave.

According to Core Scientific, it received this unsolicited offer from CoreWeave on Monday. The Board of Directors has rejected the offer as it believes it undervalues the BTC mining company.

CoreWeave was offering to acquire CORZ stock for $5.75 per share in cash. That represents a roughly 21% premium over the stock’s closing price on Friday, which was the last trading day before the offer was made.

Here’s what Core Scientific said in its rejection letter:

“The Board has evaluated the Company’s growth prospects and near- and long-term value creation potential, including in connection with both the previously announced CoreWeave agreements and the proposal. The Board determined that the CoreWeave proposal significantly undervalues the Company and is not in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.”
