The move would also foreclose the option of selling more stock to raise cash every year, a move which Musk has disfavored in recent years.
Tesla said on Wednesday the discussions had addressed the issue of how to fund such a deal, but gave no details.

He followed up the tweet with an email to Tesla employees saying that he thought "the best path forward" would be to take Tesla private.
The most obvious equity partners for Musk would be a sovereign wealth fund such as Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF), which sources said on Tuesday had taken a stake of just below 5 percent in Tesla, or a major technology investment fund such as SoftBank Group Corp's Vision Fund, bankers said. But they did not reveal who or what institution Musk may have been referring to when he posted "funding secured". He might not get all of those to buy into his plan.
