So, this was just published on Tesla’s Blog:
This is… interesting. There are actually some valid thoughts in it.
Especially the part about having to meet certain deadlines because they are a public company. Also rash decisions because of it are always a concern with a publicly traded company. And sure that isn’t good for their employees (I didn’t know every employee of them was a shareholder?).
420$ also seems reasonable for a buy-out (at current prices of course).
Personally I always thought that Tesla went public rather quick, considering they weren’t really established at the time.
On a side note, that E-Mail/letter seems very well written considering it’s Musk.
