Days after Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla (TSLA) Inc, attempted to back out of the $44 billion transactions, Twitter Inc (TWTR) struck out at the world’s richest man, accusing him of knowing breaking an agreement to purchase the social media company. Shares of Twitter finished 11.3 per cent down.
Twitter wrote to Musk to clarify that, contrary to what Musk claimed in a statement on Friday, it had not violated any of the terms of the merger agreement.
Twitter insists that Musk uphold his end of the bargain, particularly when it comes to using their respective best endeavours to complete and effect the transactions the Agreement has in mind.
Musk laughed off the threat from the firm to sue him to force him to finish the sale on Monday when he launched a series of tweets making fun of Twitter and its promise to enforce the agreement in court. Early this week, Twitter intends to file a lawsuit in Delaware.
In the letter, Twitter stated that the merger agreement was still in effect and that it would move forward with the transaction.
