The founder and largest individual shareholder of a corporation announcing that they're considering taking the company private is definitely news.

Small nitpick, he's the CEO, but not the founder. Tesla loves to forget telling this part of the story, but it was founded by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning in 2003. Elon invested the next year, but didn't become CEO until 2008.
