The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has sent Tesla Inc. a request concerning its executive director Elon Musk and his messages on Twitter about the plans to privatize the company, reports The New York Times.
The regulator requests information from each of the Tesla directors . The Commission is interested in whether Musk had any actual grounds for such statements, and the SEC intends to find out why such important information was provided to them publicly, via the social network.
Last week, the directors were outraged when the head of Tesla wrote details of the deal to transfer Tesla from a publicly traded company to a private company.
Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured.

The representatives of Tesla were sure that Elon Musk was “out of control” and asked him to stop discussing the situation in the company on Twitter. Nevertheless, Mask continued to publish messages on the social network, publicly revealing the details of the company’s strategy and issuing “dubious” information.
We remind you that Twitter has recently begun blocking accounts containing the name of Elon Musk.
