Musk wrote that he made the August 7 announcement because he had talked to large investors about his desire to take the company private.

The transaction would be structured with equity so as not to burden Tesla with crushing debt, Musk added. While the entrepreneur owns 20 percent of Tesla, more than $60 billion would be needed to buy the business from public shareholders. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is examining whether the tweet was meant to be factual, according to a person familiar with the matter, and at least two investors have sued Musk and Tesla alleging share-price manipulation.
