Tesla shares were hit hard after CEO Elon Musk on Friday sent a letter to employees saying the company would lay off approximately 7% of its staff – around 3,000 employees – due specifically to pressure on profits and the Model 3’s production challenges.
“Tesla will need to make these cuts while increasing the Model 3 production rate and making many manufacturing engineering improvements in the coming months,” Musk said.
“Higher volume and manufacturing design improvements are crucial for Tesla to achieve the economies of scale required to manufacture the standard range (220 mile), standard interior Model 3 at $US35k and still be a viable company. There isn’t any other way.”
The past half year has been a roller-coaster ride for Tesla shareholders.
The stock topped out above $US387 on August 7, when Musk tweeted that he had “funding secured” to take Tesla private at $US420 a share. Musk didn’t have funding secured and was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission for misleading the public. He later settled with the regulator, agreeing to step down as Tesla chairman for at least three years and pay a $US20 million fine.
Tesla’s stock tanked to $US250 in the wake of the go-private saga. It then managed to climb back above $US350 after the company posted a surprise third-quarter profit thanks to strong revenue generated by its Model 3 sedan.
