Here is a Part of Elon Musk Business Acumen
Elon Musk’s $906 million Tesla stock sale on Monday puts him one step closer to achieving his ultimate sales objective. The most important question is: what is the goal?
Musk aims to sell 10% of his total Tesla shares, according to his November Twitter vow. At the time, he held slightly over 170 million shares, meaning he will potentially sell roughly 17 million shares to satisfy his Twitter pledge.
According to InsiderScores/Verity, he had sold a total of 11.9 million shares as of Tuesday morning. The sales were spread out across 680 transactions for a total of $12.7 billion. Based on his 10% aim, he would likely sell another 5 million shares, worth more than $4.8 billion at Monday’s closing price of roughly $966.
It might, however, turn out to be more. Musk is selling shares in two ways: one to pay taxes on his remuneration package, and the other to cash out outright, or “to-pocket” sales.
Elon Musk is selling primarily to pay taxes on the exercise of options that will expire next summer. Tesla CEO Elon Musk was awarded options on 22.8 million shares that expire next August as part of a 2012 incentive package. When Musk began selling shares, the options were worth more over $28 billion, meaning his tax burden might have been as high as $15 billion.
Along with his tax bill, the stock has dropped more than 20% since then. Musk has sold 6.5 million shares to settle the taxes on around 15 million options, according to InsiderScore/Verity, and has sold a similar $4 billion or more to pay the taxes.
He’ll probably have another foru or five block sales of 934,000 shares (the number sold in each of the past tax-related transactions) before the year is over.
The main question is how many more shares he’ll sell for cash or “to-pocket” profits. He’s sold around 5.4 million shares for cash so far, with nothing to do with his options exercises or taxes. If all of his future sales are tax-related, he will only need to sell another $4 billion. However, if he continues to sell for cash – to help finance SpaceX or other ventures – the figure might rise.
Musk is expected to sell just $5 billion more by the end of the year, based on his 10% objective. However, if he has additional monetary plans or requirements, sales may soar much higher.
