Elon Musk To Terminate The Twitter Deal? Here’s What You Need To Know

Billionaire Elon Musk wants to end his $44 billion deal to purchase Twitter, as per a letter sent by a legal counselor on behalf of the organization’s boss legitimate official on Friday July 8. Musk’s attorney claimed Twitter failed to follow its commitments in the consolidation arrangement.

Twitter’s board chairman Bret Taylor said the organization is invariably dedicated to finalizing the negotiation at the settled upon price and plans to seek after lawful activity to authorize the deal.

“We are confident we will prevail in the Delaware Court of Chancery,” Taylor wrote.

In the mean time, Twitter shares were down around 6% as at Friday July 8.

In the letter, which was unveiled in a Securities and Exchange Commission documenting, Skadden Arps lawyer Mike Ringler said that “Twitter has not followed its legally binding commitments.”

Ringler guaranteed that Twitter didn’t furnish Musk with significant business data he mentioned, as Ringler said the agreement would require. Musk has recently said he wanted to survey Twitter’s cases that around 5% of its monetizable day to day dynamic clients (mDAUs) are spam accounts.

Ringler said Twitter has bombed by giving Mr. Musk a total or usable data.

Ringler also charged in the letter that Twitter breached the merger agreement because it allegedly contains “materially inaccurate representations.” This accusation is based on Musk’s own preliminary review of spam accounts on Twitter’s platform.

Twitter has said it’s not possible to calculate spam accounts from solely public information and that a team of experts conducts a review to reach the 5% figure.


According Ringler, while this analysis remains ongoing, all indications suggest that several of Twitter’s public disclosures regarding its mDAUs are either false or materially misleading.

Despite public speculation on this point, Mr. Musk did not waive his right to review Twitter’s data and information simply because he chose not to seek this data and information before entering into the Merger Agreement.

“In fact, he negotiated access and information rights within the Merger Agreement precisely so that he could review data and information that is important to Twitter’s business before financing and completing the transaction.”

While Musk is now authoritatively looking to leave the deal, this adventure is possible not even close to finished.

Under the terms of the agreement, Musk agreed to pay $1 billion if he backs out. But as Twitter’s board chair indicated they would do, the company can seek to hold Musk to his original deal by suing him for walking away if they dispute that his reasoning should let him out of the contract.

Twitter has reason to seek to hold Musk to his original terms. The stock has fallen considerably since the board announced it had accepted his offer to buy the company at $I per share. On the day of that announcement, the stock ended the trading day at $51.70 per share. Twitter shares sat at $36.81 as of Friday’s market close.

Musk is apparently paying attention to the stock price, too, according to the letter, “and is considering whether the company’s declining business prospects and financial outlook constitute a Company Material Adverse Effect giving Mr. Musk a separate and distinct basis for terminating the Merger Agreement.”
