Tesla will seek shareholder approval for a second stock split at its annual general meeting: Details

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, and Twitter are engaged in a legal struggle after the worldโ€™s richest man announced last month that he was abandoning a $44 billion (about Rs. 3,48,300 crore) bid to acquire the firm.

According to Refinitiv data, Musk owns 15.6% of Tesla after selling millions of shares over the course of the last year. Two years after a five-for-one split helped bring the price of the skyrocketing stock into reach of ordinary investors, Tesla revealed in March its intention to seek investor approval to raise the number of shares outstanding. Now, Tesla proposes a three-for-one split.

After the 2020 stock split, Tesla shares, which began in 2010 at $17 (about Rs. 1,300) each, climbed to over $1,200 (approximately Rs. 95,000) late in 2018, bringing the companyโ€™s market valuation past $1 trillion (roughly Rs. 79,16,233 crore).

While a stock split has no effect on a companyโ€™s fundamentals, it can boost the share price by making the shares more accessible to a broader spectrum of investors. In recent times, IT giants Alphabet, Amazon, and Apple have also announced stock splits.

In addition, Tesla shareholders will vote on the boardโ€™s proposals to lower the tenure of its directors from three to two years and to re-elect Ira Ehrenpreis and Kathleen Wilson-Thompson to their positions. Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) advised Tesla shareholders against voting for the two nominees last month.

At the meeting, shareholders will vote on a motion asking the board to allow significant and long-term owners or groups with at least 3 percent of the firmโ€™s shares to place competing director candidates on the company ballot.

Tesla stated in its proxy statement that this may present an opportunity for special interests seeking just short-term gains, as opposed to the companyโ€™s long-term goals. In a board proposal, the business requested shareholder approval for the elimination of certain supermajority voting restrictions, claiming that doing so would โ€œprovide shareholders a stronger voice.โ€ Both Glass Lewis and ISS advised shareholders to vote in favour of both proposals. The annual meeting will begin at 5.30 p.m. ET (3am IST on Friday).
