Tesla CEO Elon Musk wants to take the company private.
Mr. Musk provided greater detail of his efforts to take the company private in a blog posted on Tesla's website Monday.
Recently, after the Saudi fund bought nearly 5% of Tesla stock through the public markets, they reached out to ask for another meeting.
"The question is still around Tesla's future sales".
Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. At least two investors have sued Musk and Tesla alleging share-price manipulation. That price "would only be used for Tesla shareholders who do not remain with out company if it is private", Musk said. The comprehensive plan, known as Vision 2030, was laid out in April by the country's leaders and involves transferring 5 percent of state-owned Saudi Aramco to the investment fund through an initial public offering, expected to be the largest in history. They then held several additional meetings with me over the next year to reiterate this interest and to try to move forward with a going private transaction.
The proposed class period in Isaacs' lawsuit runs from the afternoon of Aug. 7 through the next day, and in Chamberlain's lawsuit runs from Aug. 7 to Aug. 10.

Stokes added he "felt under threat of immediate attack from both these men and I did what I did only in order to defend myself". The cricketer is missing England's upcoming second Test match with India at Lord's due to the trial at Bristol Crown Court.
Musk has also said he would be looking to keep his ownership of Tesla at around 20 percent in a buyout deal, and that a special objective vehicle, like the one that exists at his aerospace company SpaceX, would allow Tesla shareholders to remain invested if they so choose.
A Tesla investment would add to the Saudi fund's long growing list of high-profile purchases.
Tesla had burned through $ 739.5 million in cash in the second quarter and Musk had assured that the company will post a profit in the next quarter.
He wrote that in the blog and the August 7 tweet that he was speaking for himself as a potential bidder for the company.
"They first met with me at the beginning of 2017 to express this interest because of the important need to diversify away from oil". "I understood from him that no other decision makers were needed and that they were eager to proceed", Musk wrote in the blog.
The Saudi fund's talks began before the controversial August 7 tweet in which Musk said he was weighing a plan to take the company private.
What are the next steps? I will now continue to talk with investors, and I have engaged advisors to investigate a range of potential structures and options. While the entrepreneur owns 20 per cent of Tesla, more than US$60 billion would be needed to buy the business from public shareholders.
