How is Musk legitimizing the Sauds exactly?

If anything it looks like one of the reason to go private is specifically to prevent the Saudi fund from being able to increase their ownership by buying on the public market.




You cannot stop the Sauds from buying stock on the public market, you can decline a private bailout from them, on moral grounds


How exactly is the Saudi fund going to buy share on the public market if Tesla is not on the public market anymore?


Moot point. If public, Tesla can't stop the Sauds from buying stock. However, they can refuse a bailout from the Sauds to go private


> However, they can refuse a bailout from the Sauds to go private

What do you mean? I may be missing something here, but I really don't understand this part.

Are you suggesting the Saudis are the one that will provide the 50B$ needed to go private?


There is no 'bailout' stop making up bullshit.
