Elon Musk Reportedly Ready to Close the $54.20 per Share Acquisition of Twitter

Ali Mogharabi Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Ali Mogharabi |

According to various publications including Bloomberg and CNBC, Elon Musk notified Twitter yesterday that he will go through with the purchasing of Twitter for $54.20, above our standalone Twitter fair value estimate of $44 (and above the FactSet consensus estimate of $40). This was confirmed later by Musk’s 13D filing. Trading in the stock was halted for some time. We are raising our valuation of Twitter to $54.20 as the likelihood of either side now stepping away from the transaction is minimal. According to CNBC, the deal could close by the end of this week. As we mentioned in our July note, we think there are various reasons why Musk came back to the table and stuck with his original offer as he and his legal team likely saw the upcoming court battles against the firm unwinnable and/or very costly.
