Elon Musk is set to buy $20 million worth of Tesla stock
Wednesday, 17 October 2018 Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk intends to purchase $20 million worth of stock from the electric-car maker during the next open trading window in the wake of Tesla’s and Musk’s settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, according to an 8K regulatory filing. “Separate and apart from the settlement, Elon has notified Tesla that he intends to purchase from Tesla, and Tesla expects that it will issue and sell to Elon, $20 million of Tesla’s common stock during the next open trading window at the then-current market price,” the filing states. News of Musk’s stock purchase comes a day after the US District Court for the Southern District of New York approved the terms of a $40 million settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission over fraud charges stemming from Musk’s early August tweet in which he declared his intention to take the company private.

However, Tesla and Musk will each pay a civil penalty of $20 million and Musk will be forced to resign as chairman of Tesla board for a period of three years. According to the filing, Tesla must appoint two independent directors to the board as well as a permanent board of independent directors whose membership will be subject to approval by the SEC staff. This committee will work to oversee management’s public statements regarding Tesla. Additional controls will also be imposed on Musk’s Twitter feed and his other public communications regarding Tesla. The fraud suit filed against Tesla and Musk by the SEC came after Musk tweeted last August that he was considering taking Tesla private and said he had funding secured.

Tesla shares jumped 1% to $279.38 in Wednesday's morning trading session.
