Musk Vs. Twitter Tussle Isn’t Affecting Price
This unexpectedly favorable price movement underscores the fact that DOGE appears to be fully untouched by complicated legal proceedings and ambiguity surrounding the potential $44 billion acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk earlier this year.
The CEO of Tesla/SpaceX stated his desire to withdraw from the agreement two weeks ago. Musk countersued Twitter, which had filed a lawsuit to try and enforce the agreement. Following months of public debate between the parties, a Delaware judge yesterday decided that a five-day trial will be scheduled for October to resolve the issue.
Following the release of that information, Twitter’s stock price fell 2% this morning to $38.85 per share at the time of publication, according to Yahoo! Finance. According to the first release, the agreed upon price per share of Twitter stock under the definitive agreement to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Elon Musk was $54.20, representing a 38 percent premium over the Twitter stock price on April 1, 2022.
