Elon Musk buys Twitter: supply & impact
As reported above, Musk announced last week that he would buy out Twitter. He offered the company $54 per share, for a total of $41 billion. The social media platform reacted to this with the so-called “poison pill” strategy. This strategy is designed to make a company unattractive to potential buyers. They plan to sell shares more cheaply to shareholders who already own more than 15 percent of the total shares.
However, according to the board, it is not out of the question for Twitter to accept an acquisition proposal or work with other companies.
Here’s what Twitter’s stock price looked like at the time of the news:
Current Twitter rate: 36 months
Here again the long-term view of the last 36 months, with current status.
