  • Elon Musk to Resign as Chair of Tesla Board but Remain CEO

The row began in August when Musk (47) tweeted that he was considering taking Tesla private at $420 a share and had secured funding.

Tesla shares sank last week after the SEC accused Mr Musk of securities fraud, opening up the prospect of a long-drawn out fight that could have seen Tesla lose its leader, undermine its ability to raise capital and cripple operations. Tesla shares plummeted 14% on Friday, the biggest drop in nearly five years. An initial verdict of feat or failure could land as soon as Monday in the form of Tesla's latest quarterly release.

While the 15-year-old company has never earned an annual profit, Tesla's CEO has vowed it's the verge of making money and stemming cash burn that's exceeded more than $1 billion in recent quarters.

The Model 3 is seen by analysts as crucial to the carmaker's long-term prospects and Musk has promised the ramp-up will help make the company profitable in the third quarter. In Coral Gables, Florida, a showroom attendant who asked not to be named said deliveries were scheduled hour-by-hour to avoid congestion. The one in Brooklyn, for example, was quiet Saturday morning. Hitting production and delivery targets has become increasingly important for Tesla's relationship with Wall Street investors after the auto maker struggled to increase production to meet demand of its new Model 3 electric vehicle.

Others were so busy that volunteers showed up to help staff out. Tesla was hit with a $20 million fine of their own.

"Shareholders with Tesla will be able to go to sleep tonight knowing the Musk will remain at the helm of the company".

As part of the settlement with the SEC, Tesla will appoint an independent chairman, two independent directors, and a board committee to set controls over Musk's communications under the proposed agreement. However, according to the latest reports, the CEO of Tesla, the well-known vehicle manufacturing company, of course, Elon Musk resigns as chairman of Telsa.

"The total package of remedies and relief announced today are specifically created to address the misconduct at issue by strengthening Tesla's corporate governance and oversight in order to protect investors", said Stephanie Avakian, co-director of the SEC's Enforcement Division.

The settlement with the SEC won't be the end of the matter, though, as Musk is also facing a series of class action lawsuits relating to the tweets.
