Elon Musk says taking Tesla private would be an ‘impossible’ task

It is “impossible” for Elon Musk to turn Tesla private — regardless of the CEO’s conviction that freeing the electric carmaker of its obligations as a public organization would help quicken development, he said Christmas Eve.

“Engineering, design & general company operations absorb vast majority of my mind & are the fundamental limitation on doing more,” Musk tweeted in response to a user who was speculating on how the tech tycoon could best allocate his time. “Tesla public company duties are a much bigger factor, but going private is impossible now (sigh).”

Tesla, which was added to the benchmark S&P 500 record this week, has seen its offers flood 670 percent since the start of the year. With its almost $630 billion market cap, Tesla would be by a wide margin the greatest procurement ever.

Musk had broadly gotten into high temp water with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the wake of sending an Aug. 7, 2018, tweet that said he was “considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured.”

The pot joke landed him a $20 million fine and brought about him being compelled to venture down from his part as Tesla’s director.

Musk on Thursday likewise tweeted that Starlink — the web radiating satellite business inside SpaceX — is his next endeavor that is probably going to IPO, saying that it would go public “once revenue growth is reasonably predictable.”
