Tesla’s Musk approaches a $1.8b bonanza

first_imgTesla last week reported higher-than-expected second-quarter vehicle deliveries, defying plummeting sales in the wider auto industry as the coronavirus pandemic slammed the global economy.The solid delivery numbers heightened expectations of a profitable second quarter, which would mark four consecutive profitable quarters, a first for Tesla, and a key hurdle to be added to the S&P 500 index.Musk, who is also the majority owner and CEO of the SpaceX rocket maker, receives no salary, only the options in his pay package. A full payoff of all tranches would surpass anything previously granted to US executives.When Tesla unveiled Musk’s pay package, it said he could theoretically reap as much as $55.8 billion if no new shares were issued. However, Tesla has since issued shares to compensate employees, and also sold shares in secondary offers, including a $2 billion stock sale in February.Topics : Tesla Inc’s blistering stock rally is putting Chief Executive Elon Musk in reach of a payday potentially worth US$1.8 billion, his second jackpot from the electric car maker in about two months.Fueled by stronger-than-expected car deliveries, shares of Tesla have surged over 40 percent in the past seven sessions, elevating the company’s market capitalization to $259 billion. More important for Musk’s personal finances, Tesla’s six-month average market capitalization has reached a record $138 billion.Hitting a six-month average market capitalization of $150 billion would trigger the vesting of the second of 12 tranches of options granted to the billionaire to buy Tesla stock as part of his 2018 pay package. In early May, Musk’s first tranche vested after Tesla’s six-month average stock market value reached $100 billion. Musk has already achieved targets related to Tesla’s financial growth that are also required in order to vest the approaching options tranche.Each tranche gives Musk the option to buy 1.69 million Tesla shares at $350.02 each. At Tesla’s current stock price of $1,397, Musk would theoretically be able to sell the shares related to the tranche that vested in May and the upcoming tranche for a combined profit of over $3.5 billion, or $1.8 billion per tranche.Musk’s first tranche was worth about $700 million in May, when it vested, but its value has since increased along with Tesla’s stock price.Tesla has surged 500 percent over the past year as the company increased sales of its Model 3 sedan.last_img read more

Brandon Ingram’s sprained ankle leaves the Lakers short another ball-handler

first_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers LOS ANGELES — Once again, Josh Hart found himself employing the “next man up” mantra.After saying much the same when veteran point guard Rajon Rondo went down with a broken hand on Nov. 14, on Wednesday the Lakers were forced to consider what it might mean to move forward without their play-making forward Brandon Ingram, at least for a while.The starting forward will miss an indeterminate amount of time after he suffered a sprained left ankle with about 6:35 left in the first quarter of the Lakers’ 121-113 victory over the San Antonio Spurs at Staples Center.Ingram will not join the team for the trip to San Antonio (Friday) and Memphis (Saturday) and is staying in L.A. for further evaluation. The team said he was scheduled to undergo a “precautionary MRI” to check for more serious injury. In his third year in the league, Ingram is averaging 15.2 points and shooting 47 percent from the floor as he’s adjusted to playing beside LeBron James.The ongoing development of their on-court chemistry was delayed four games early in the season while Ingram was suspended for his role in a melee during the Lakers’ home opener against the Houston Rockets.Lately, Ingram has found the mark offensively, shooting better than 50 percent in four of the past six games and hitting both of his jumpers to start Wednesday, when he seemed poised to use his length to pester the Spurs’ DeMar DeRozan (32 points) defensively.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

But we’ve been in this situation before, with ’Zo going out (last season). B.I. went out for a long portion (last season). But it’s all about the team and next person.”With Ingram off the floor on Wednesday, and with versatile guard Hart also in foul trouble early, the Lakers “scrambled,” Walton said.Minus those ball-handlers (and Rondo) to turn to behind Lonzo Ball and LeBron James, the Lakers sent forth a motley lineup of Michael Beasley, Lance Stephenson, rookie Svi Mykhailiuk, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee to start the second quarter.“We hit some mid-game adversity and it affected us, it knocked us off our normal rhythm,” Walton said. “But I thought we did a really good job of bouncing back from that. Guys started to play again and obviously, at halftime, we could regroup and pencil some different ideas … of when to get guys in and out, and making sure we always had LeBron or ’Zo for the most part on the floor.”Walton said that will be the basic plan for however long the Lakers are without Ingram – which, for now, will overlap with Rondo’s absence. Rondo has not been cleared for full contact yet.Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersAfter Ingram landed on LaMarcus Aldridge’s foot following a jumper just outside of the key, Aldridge was assessed a Flagrant 1 foul for moving underneath Ingram while he was in the air without giving him space to land, which caused Ingram to roll his ankle.The Lakers immediately missed Ingram, whose X-rays were negative, the team said.“It will be evaluated tomorrow,” Lakers coach Luke Walton said. “There’s no timetable or anything like that, but I’d say he got it pretty good.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “We’re gonna have to start splitting LeBron and ’Zo a little more,” Walton said. “Get one of them out earlier than we’d like. Lance can run some point still, Svi ran some point with his national team, so he’s capable – but we’re going to try to have LeBron and ’Zo on the court for most of the game.”Ball said that’s fine with him.“Whenever Luke puts me out there, I’m gonna do whatever I can to help the team win, whether that’s with LeBron, without LeBron, with B.I., without B.I., I’m just gonna do my role,” Ball said, adding that the difference for him without those particular players on the court is that “I’ll have the ball in my hands more, initiating the offense, trying to get guys to the right spot.”Hart said it was hard to say, on Wednesday night, what Ingram’s injury will mean for the Lakers’ respective roles.“Might be more minutes, might be more shots, might not be – I don’t really know, that’s something that we’re gonna have to figure out,” Hart said. “First of all, we want him to get back as fast as he can, and we want him to be healthy, 100 percent.“But while he’s out, it’s just next man up.”ISAAC BONGA CALLED UPTo shore up depth along the wings, the Lakers called up rookie Isaac Bonga, who has yet to make his NBA debut.A German who was the Lakers’ 39th overall pick in the draft, Bonga has started 12 games with the G League affiliate South Bay Lakers, averaging 14 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals while shooting 44.4 percent from 3-point range.
