“Building a business, that’s exactly what I did”.

To counter this, Musk started his fight against the SEC. Musk claims the agency worked for people who short-circuited Tesla. However, it didn’t end for Elon when they both reached a settlement. Elon agreed to step down as chairman of the board. Both Musk and Tesla had to pay $20 million in fines each.

This settlement only helped Musk because he didn’t want Tesla to pay for his comments and the issues with the commission. However, it was also not an option to pay directly for the part of the fine from the electric car manufacturer. Partly because of this, Musk bought $20 million in Tesla shares and ended up with 71,000 extra Tesla shares.
