A Deal's A Deal: Tesla Retail Investor Joins the Delaware Court To Fight For All Retail Investors And To Compensate Elon Musk And Honor His Contract

A Tesla retail investor, SFTahoe, is fighting on behalf of Tesla retail investors to get Elon Musk the compensation package he deserves for the hard work to get Tesla to grow.

Tesla Retail Investor Fights For Retail Investors and Elon Musk's Hard Work

Elon Musk has done quite a bit for Tesla as its CEO, In the time since 2018, when a new compensation package was outlined, Elon Musk had to hit certain targets or get paid NOTHING.

That's right, you read that correctly. If he didn't grow Tesla to various market cap and other growth targets, he would get nothing.

During Elon's time over the last 6 years, he did the following:

  • Grew Tesla from 50 billion to over 500 billion in market cap.
  • Unveiled and delivered on ramping the Model 3.
  • Unveiled and delivered on ramping the Model Y.
  • Got the Model Y to be the world's best-selling vehicle.
  • Unveiled and delivered on the Cybertruck.
  • Continued to ramp Tesla energy to now be a serious contributor to Tesla's revenue.
  • Evolved Tesla FSD to version 12.3.6, which is a pretty good driver assist software now.
  • Unveiled the Tesla Bot and began demonstrating its capabilities.

Tesla has grown in revenue and profits over this time due to all these extraordinary things Elon Musk helped lead to their completion or beginnings. He deserves to get paid for his work in a contract that was ALREADY voted on.

There are many CEOs in this world for companies that stay flat or flounder, and they continue to get paid on stock options and millions of dollars of salary.

Elon Musk set a precedent that all other CEOs should follow - and that is, you only get paid when you succeed at growing the business and delivering on the vision you set forth.

A Tesla retail investor, Amy, also known as SFTahoe on X, said the following on X on June 5th, 2024:

I have retained counsel to appear in the Delaware Court of Chancery to challenge the plaintiff’s fee request in Tornetta v Musk et al. I voted for the CEO Performance award in 2018, and voted for the ratification now.  While I’m active in the case, I’ll refrain from commenting here. #tesla

I think it's very brave and honorable for her to go straight to the "battlefield" of this court battle that is ongoing where Elon Musk's fair and contractually obligated compensation package has been denied.

Tesla is doing a lot of good in this world, and it's only fair to compensate the main who helped put forth the vision to make Tesla a success.

Pay Elon Musk For What Was Contracted On

The bottom line of all of this is to pay the man for the work he did that got Tesla to where it is today.

If not, what precedent does this set for future CEOs and compensation packages? Will they, too, be able to be overturned by other courts?

The original case, which took years to bring forth, was brought forth by a plaintiff with 9 shares of Tesla stock. This person has wasted a tremendous amount of people's time and money, and that is where the courts should be looking.

I'm happy to see retail investors fighting back and to see Amy getting involved in this. Tesla produces amazing cars that the world needs. Its FSD software will one day be much safer than any human, and that is technology that needs to develop. Better have the man that had the vision at the helm to make it so.
