It seems like Tesla, Inc. (TSLA) and Elon Musk have been in the news every day for months now…
And this past week was no different…
If you haven’t heard by now (and I’m sure you have), Musk was booted from his position as chairman of the powerful car company.
And unsurprisingly the stock has felt the weight of this bad press…
The TSLA Media Show Goes On
Elon Musk and Twitter (TWTR) make quite the team…
The tech mogul takes to the social media platform often to express his thoughts and opinions but his latest string of tweets have landed him in the grips of the Security Exchange Committee (SEC).
The market watchdog has officially accused (and sued) Mr. Musk, but not the company that he co-founded, of securities fraud. Following this, the SEC took it a step further and pushed for Musk to be removed from his role of chairman.
According to the SEC, Musk made a series of “false and misleading” tweets about potentially taking TSLA private last month. In the lawsuit, it’s described that Musk surprised his own team and investors with the string of tweets he made on August 7.
And on October 1 – the decision was made to have Musk step down as chairman as well as fining him $10 million to settle the charges. The settlement will allow him to remain the CEO of the company.
But this decision didn’t stick long – and Musk rejected the settlement. And he took it a step further when he threatened the TSLA board with a permanent departure if the board refused to stand behind him…
Tesla’s market cap fell drastically after the news of the lawsuit hit the media circuit solidifying something most of the market already new – Musk is an integral part of the company. This volatility is what led Musk to reluctantly agree to allow TSLA lawyers to reach out to the SEC on his behalf to ask for a second chance at the deal.
The SEC wasn’t as kind as the first round – but he reluctantly accepted the terms of the new settlement which were much harsher. Under the new terms, Musk would be required to step down as board chairman for three years, as opposed to an original two years, and his fine was doubled from $10 million to $20 million.
But here’s the thing – no one expected for the SEC to make a decision as fast as they did and a lot of people actually hurt them self by jumping the gun and selling off on Friday. Generally the SEC doesn’t turn decision around that quickly, but with electric cards being the further of automobiles – it was too important for the industry to get dragged down by Musk’s antics.
