Tesla's spokesman said that when Denholm leaves Telstas, he gets a bonus of 8,000 shares a year and $ 300,000.
Tesla's Managing Director Elon Musk filed a lawsuit against the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) earlier this month for tweeting to confuse investors. In particular, Elon Musk wrote on Twitter that he would consider turning Tesla into a private company for $ 420 per share. The data show that Tesla's shares rose sharply on August 7, to $ 387.46 per share.
The SEC immediately challenged Elon Musk and billionaire agreed with the SEC. He was forced to leave Tesla's presidency for 45 days, fine $ 20 million, and he should be more cautious when speaking.
After this event, Tesla's shares began to slip and fall to 25 percent. However, its position has recently risen thanks to the third-quarter earnings review. Tesla's shares were closed on Wednesday at $ 348.16. In the third quarter of 2018, Tesla's net sales were $ 6.8 billion, $ 312 million in profit and 83,500 vehicles, exceeding expectations for several investors.
