Two years ago, Elon Musk, Teslas chief executive, said on social media that he was considering privatizing Tesla and had secured funding.. The news caught the attention of the securities and Exchange Commission, which later charged Mr. musk with securities fraud and eventually reached a settlement.
According to the settlement, Tesla agreed to add two independent directors, and musk resigned as chairman for three years.
Teslas share price has experienced big swings before it began to rise this spring. While shares of other automakers, such as Ford and general motors, have been sluggish, the stock has been rising. This split may be the result of a rapid appreciation of its share price. (small)
