San Francisco. – CEO of Tesla Inc, Elon Muskwhich sold more than $15 billion in company stock Since early November, he said Thursday he was “nearly finished” selling the securities.
The billionaire has made confusing statements about whether he has finished his goal of selling 10% of his Tesla stock.
I sold enough shares to get 10% plus exercise the option and tried to be very literal,” he said in an interview Tuesday with Babylon Bee’s website.
But he hinted on Wednesday that it may not be over. “This marks the completion of the $10 billion sale,” he wrote on Twitter, referring to his pre-determined sales plan related to his options.
There are still some sections, but it’s almost done,” he tweeted later.

After the sale, Musk still has about 1.5 million stock options that expire in August next year.
