Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) offering $650 million of common stock and $1.35 billion in convertible senior notes due in 2024 in two separate offerings
A week after posting a huge first-quarter loss and saying the company needs to raise cash, Tesla is doing just that. The company said Thursday that it’s offering $650 million of common stock and $1.35 billion in convertible senior notes due in 2024 in two separate offerings.
The company anticipates gross proceeds of about $2.3 billion, before discounts and expenses. CEO Elon Musk will participate, buying $10 million worth of stock, the company said.
Last week, Tesla reported its cash balance at the end of the first quarter shrunk by $1.5 billion since December, to $2.2 billion. Musk said during a conference call that Tesla might need to raise capital again. The company will use the proceeds “to further strengthen its balance sheet, as well as for general corporate purposes,” according to a press release.
