Musk Sees "Victory" Tuesday, SEC Deal: Tesla Jumps

Tesla will also pay a $20 million fine.

The auto company has been aiming to hit a production target of between 50,000 and 55,000 vehicles per week, according to the company's own estimates.

Under the settlement, Tesla and Mr Musk will pay $20 million each to the securities regulator and Musk will step down as chairman but remain as chief executive.

The settlement, reached on Saturday, comes after Musk initially rejected the charges, claiming they were "unjustified".

"This is a good resolution for Tesla stakeholders", Ben Kallo, an analyst at Robert W. Baird & Co. with the equivalent of a buy rating on the shares, said in an email. He's Tesla's largest shareholder, with a 20 percent stake.

In the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, more than 75 people crammed into Tesla's service center and another 50 or so waited outside.

He's made these assurances in large part due to progress Tesla has made in producing more Model 3 sedans - the first electric vehicle Tesla has tried to mass-manufacture.

"This weekend is the pivot point", he said, describing it as watershed moment not just for the company but for the shift away from the internal combustion engine.

Furthermore, it adds: "Despite notifying the market in 2013 that it intended to use Musk's Twitter account as a means of announcing material information about Tesla and encouraging investors to review Musk's tweets, Tesla had no disclosure controls or procedures in place to determine whether Musk's tweets contained information required to be disclosed in Tesla's SEC filings".

From the beginning of this case, the SEC requested as a penalty that Elon Musk had left the position of chairman from the board of Tesla, something that has now been achieved.

Musk will remain Tesla CEO after settling SEC fraud charges over his infamous "funding secured" tweet about taking the vehicle firm private.

But its shares have been hit hard since the SEC filed the lawsuit.

Tesla shares sank last week after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission accused Musk of securities fraud, opening up the prospect of a long-drawn out fight that could have seen Tesla lose its leader, undermine its ability to raise capital and cripple operations.

The settlement doesn't resolve investors' lawsuits, which were significantly strengthened by the SEC's complaint.

Gore has previously noted his admiration for Tesla and Musk.
