A COMMERCIAL PLAN
Tesla is the world’s most valuable automotive company and is valued at more than $1 trillion. Musk sold 3.6 million shares worth around $4 billion. He then sold 934,000 shares with sales options worth $1.1 trillion. The sale documents noted that a fifth of the shares were sold in September under a trading plan reached long before the Twitter poll.
58 PERCENT WANTED TO SELL
3.5 million people participated in the survey, and 58 percent of respondents told Musk to sell his shares. Musk was actually opposed to the “billionaire tax” proposal proposed by some politicians in the U.S. Democratic Party. Tesla executive Musk owns a stake in the company worth more than $200 billion. With new operations planned for next year, this wealth is expected to grow much larger. But in this case, if the proposed legislation passes, it would mean a very serious tax payment for Musk.
