According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted on August 7, 2018, Am considering taking Tesla private at $420,” and “funding secured. The lawsuit alleges that despite Musks tweets, no funding had been secured to take Tesla private at $420 per share. Musk also falsely claimed that investor support is confirmed. Both the SEC and Teslas board of directors are reportedly investigating Musks tweets on the matter. On September 27, Elon Musk was sued by the SEC for his tweets. The SEC alleges that Musk has no intention of taking the company private. Based on these facts, the Companys public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Tesla, investors suffered damages.
