On the afternoon of November 8, Beijing time, Tesla CEO Elon Musk released a letter to Greenlight Capital founder David Einhorn on the social platform, saying, “We have read your open letter to investors in the third quarter of 2019.” In the letter, you made a number of false allegations against Tesla. ”
In addition, Musk hopes to invite David Einhorn to meet with him to discuss issues related to Tesla and visit Tesla’s facilities.
The following is the original text of the open letter:
We read your open letter to investors in the third quarter of 2019 from Your Greenlight Capital. In the letter, you made a number of false allegations against Tesla.
Given the damage to Tesla’s strong third-quarter results, and the fact that you’ve seen years of declines in earnings and a $5 billion drop in assets under management from $15 billion, you’re understandably looking to keep your face in front of investors.
We sympathize with you, too. We also recognize that your friends in Tesla’s short community have begun to flinch in the face of public discourse, as society is aware of Tesla’s contribution to science, security and a sustainable environment, and you still want to continue to short Tesla.
If you have any desire to learn about the amazing progress that Tesla employees are making, I would like to publicly invite you to meet with me to discuss issues related to Tesla and visit our facilities.
For their (investor) interest, I’m sure your investors also want you to be wise on Tesla. Finally, allow you to send you a shorts as a small gift (note: tease its “Tesla short” status) to help you through this difficult time.
