Otherwise, the yearly investor conference at Tesla has more of a celebration character, apart from the recognized treatments that ought to be resolved there. Some votes this year might come close to unfavorable for CEO Elon Musk.
Tesla’s co-founder ought to not be on board
He himself is running for re-election to the board since his three-year term is concerning an end, and it is clear that choosing the CEO is suggested in the AGM files. He does not argue. Expert financiers with $1.5 billion worth of Tesla stock released an open letter recently that threatened, a minimum of implicitly, to vote versus Musk’s reappointment. The board must make certain the CEO pays Tesla sufficient attention or fire him, they state.
With their little stakes, these investors alone will not have the ability to avoid Musk from staying on the board.

How numerous billions of dollars in Tesla stock are held by financiers who get recommendations from Glass Lewis is unidentified, as is the number who will follow Straubel’s rejection recommendations. Basically, nevertheless, proxy consultants are effective, as Musk himself grumbled just recently on Twitter: Non-profit funds would comprise a big part these days’s market and enable such advisory companies to determine their position when ballot. Unlike the independent financier group, nevertheless, Glass Lewis did not speak up versus Musk’s reappointment to the board nor versus his staying as CEO.
