Tesla CEO Elon Musk is currently facing a court case against Twitter shareholders. Elon is now a constant figure on the internet, due to his offer to buy Twitter. Due to certain factors, the billionaire held back on finalizing the Twitter deal. As a result of the alleged falsification of the actual users of Twitter, Elon Musk “took his feet off the gas” concerning buying Twitter.
Turns out that not only the billionaire’s action but also his statements about the Twitter buyout is affecting the company’s stocks. The stocks of Twitter have taken a dip ever since the delay of the Twitter purchase. A few shareholders and members of the Twitter board of directors have taken this matter to court.
The entire case stands on the actions of Elon Musk after the deal set motion. Words from the compliant label Elon’s actions as illegal and a violation of the California Corporations Code. It seems like the Twitter board of directors took a unanimous stand for this court case. We can say this because whatever proceeds from damages come out from this case if there be any is set to be split between the board equally.
The aim of this entire case is not all about the actions of Elon Musk, but forcing him to buy Twitter at the originally agreed price. Tesla’s CEO has no comment on ending the deal but instead offers to proceed with the buyout at a price lower than the initial agreement. It is also important to note that ever since the start of this deal, the stock of Tesla has been on a downward slide. Will the Tesla CEO pull out of the Twitter purchase deal, or will he buy it at the initial price? We will wait to see how things play out in court.
