Lots of Uncertainty Surrounding Next Tesla Inc (TSLA) Chairman

James Murdoch 'favourite for Tesla post' | Business

A report on Wednesday by The Financial Times said Murdoch, now the chief executive officer of 21st Century Fox and a Tesla board member since 2017, was the leading candidate to take over the chairmanship by mid-November, citing two people familiar with the matter. SEC settlements haven't met much resistance from courts since a judge's decision to reject a settlement between the SEC and Citigroup Inc.

Tesla's Elon Musk previously told financial analysts he believed it would take about US$2 billion worth of investment for the factory to be able to produce around 250,000 vehicles a year, with plans to ramp that up to 500,000 annually.

Tesla paid another $20 million to the SEC, despite not being charged with fraud. Additionally, he's relinquishing his chairmanship of Tesla, where he'll sit out for three years, but remain CEO.

James Murdoch joined Tesla's board last year, following years of work at various media companies.

Jurgen Klopp warns Reds 'second is nothing' in Premier League title fight
He's been at Chelsea for a long time now, he's achieved so much but I can't speak for Eden, he knows in his mind what he wants. City stopped the Reds from passing and stopped the front three from getting any decent service.

However, Musk appeared to mock the SEC on Twitter last Thursday, just hours after the court ordered him and the SEC to explain why their settlement was fair and reasonable. "That's probably not good news for Musk", she writes.

The two billionaires are locked in a space race alongside Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, but that has not stopped Branson from sharing some friendly words of encouragement.

And now Tesla is rallying customers with a tax break: The carmaker said orders for cars placed by October 15 will be eligible for a full federal tax credit of $7,500 and that those cars would be delivered by the end of the year. Gracias is an independent director at Californian carmakers, and is also a key investor in the company. Musk has vowed that the loss-making company will be profitable and cash flow-positive in its third and fourth quarters. Musk described the diver as a pedophile in a tweet that has since been deleted. Barclays reissued a "sell" rating and set a $210.00 price objective on shares of Tesla in a report on Monday, July 9th. Tesla has to pay a separate $20 million fine, which the SEC said will be returned to investors.

Importantly, the settlement requires Tesla to add two new independent members to its board, which is dominated by Musk allies including his brother and longtime investors and friends.

Is Elon Musk Really Leaving Tesla?

His stepping down from the chairman position is also rumoured to be associated with concerns for his health due the high stress nature of his job.

The deadline for the replacement is mid-November, but can be extended at the request of Musk.

The newspaper notes that Murdoch intends to leave his position in 21st Century Fox at the conclusion of the sale of assets of the Walt Disney company.
