Craig Irwin, senior research analyst at Roth Capital Partners, surprised everyone with his statements on CNBC. According to Irwin’s statements, Apple wanted to buy Tesla, one of the first companies that come to mind when it comes to electric cars, by agreeing to pay a fee of $ 240 per share.
Expressing that he has checked with more than one source on the subject and that the information is completely reliable, Irwin said that he does not know whether the two companies are at the signing stage. Considering that Tesla shares have a value of around $205 as of today, we can say that an opportunity has been missed for Tesla.
Apple’s acquisition of Tesla is still not a completely closed issue. We know that Apple is continuing its electric autonomous vehicle project, Project Titan. In addition, the company has included many of Tesla’s top names in its Project Titan roster in recent months, including the head of Tesla’s electric powertrains.
