Twitter Shareholder Files Lawsuit Against Musk

They’ll do anything to stop this man, won’t they?

Elon Musk recently became one of the largest shareholders of Twitter, and now he is attempting to take majority control of the company.

In response to this, the share price of Twitter has jumped. This would be welcome news to any shareholder of the company, right?

Wrong! According to the latest reports, one Twitter shareholder is suing Musk for his alleged failure to disclose his stake in the company, as per S.E.C. guidelines…

In my opinion, this is frivolous, and it suggests other motivations that are purely political—not financial.

What shareholder of an appreciating financial asset would sue over the news which caused the price of their shares to rise?

What logical shareholder would shirk one of the most arguably brilliant, influential captains of industry taking over a company which they are invested in? They don’t like money? Why did they buy the stock in the first place?

Here’s what we currently know:

Finbold explains:

The Tesla CEO had been buying shares since January and had purchased 5% of the company by March 14, which meant he had to inform the SEC by March 24.

Most persons who acquire a stake of 5% or more in a corporation are required to report their ownership in a Schedule 13G filing within ten days after the transaction, according to SEC guidelines.

 

Daily Caller adds:

Musk disclosed his purchase of a 9.2% stake in Twitter on April 4, making him the company’s largest shareholder.

Twitter stock price surged 27% after Musk announced his acquisition, which was worth nearly $3 billion.
