Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) Elon Musk settles fraud charges
Tesla shares soared by more than 17 percent Monday after chief executive Elon Musk settled a federal lawsuit over the weekend that could have resulted in his ouster from the company and thrown the all-electric carmaker into chaos.
The Securities and Exchange Commission sued Musk after accusing him of misleading investors when he announced on Twitter in August that he was planning to take the company private and proclaimed that he had already secured the funding to seal the deal. Regulators sought to remove Musk from Tesla and ban the billionaire entrepreneur from serving as chief executive of any public company. The company’s stock dropped by 14 percent following the suit.
Although the settlement with the SEC ends a potentially disastrous legal confrontation, Tesla still faces a Justice Department investigation and several shareholder lawsuits. The company’s underlying business challenges, which have included recent production and delivery delays, may persist, experts say, even as the company has made peace with financial regulators.
