Elon Musk To Stay At Tesla For Another Decade

Thelasko writes: “On Tuesday, Tesla’s board announced that it had convinced Musk to stay at the helm for another decade with a truly gargantuan performance-based pay package,” reports Ars Technica. The pay package is in a series of 12 milestones based on market capitalization. [The report notes the possibility that Musk could get nothing for a decade's work as Tesla's CEO if the company's stock never rises above $100 billion. However, Musk will get awarded with $1 billion -- 1 percent of the company's stock -- if the stock reaches a value of $100 billion and the company either achieves revenues of $20 billion or earnings of $1.5 billion.] “If the stock rises to $150 billion (and Musk reaches another revenue or profit target), Musk gets another 1 percent of the stock, which will be worth $1.5 billion,” reports Ars. “That pattern continues in $50 billion increments until Tesla’s stock rises above $650 billion — at which point Musk will get a stock award worth $6.5 billion. Musk’s stock awards will total $45 billion if he hits all 12 milestones.” I guess Musk will have to wait to move to Mars until 2028…
