Tesla’s SolarCity Acquisition Approved

As Elon Musk expected, Tesla’s acquisition of SolarCity was overwhelmingly approved by shareholders. Over 85% of shareholders approved. Interestingly, that matches up quite closely with reader surveys we conducted. In our initial survey, 74% of respondents supported the acquisition. In our second survey a few months later, 89% of respondents supported the acquisition.

As Elon Musk expected, Tesla’s acquisition of SolarCity (SCTY) was overwhelmingly approved by shareholders. Over 85% of TSLA shareholders approved.

Interestingly, that matches up quite closely with reader surveys we conducted. In our initial survey, 74% of respondents supported the acquisition. In our second survey a few months later (in mid October), 89% of respondents supported the acquisition.

CleanTechnica’s last survey regarding the acquisition.

Looks like CleanTechnica readers (who decided to vote on the surveys) match up well with the overall TSLA investment community. Or maybe we just got lucky. 🙂

We’ve commented on this acquisition at length already, so rather than rehash the same points, I’ll just recommend reading some of those stories if you missed them:

Of course, I’d also still love to see CleanTechnica community reactions to the acquisition down in the comments. Chime in if you have fresh thoughts!

Here’s Tesla’s full statement on the news:

Tesla’s Acquisition of SolarCity Receives Shareholder Approval

Tesla’s shareholders have overwhelmingly approved our acquisition of SolarCity. Excluding the votes of Elon and other affiliated shareholders, more than 85% of shares voted were cast in favor of the acquisition. With SolarCity’s shareholders also having approved the acquisition, the transaction will be completed in the coming days.
 
We would like to thank our shareholders for continuing to support our vision for the future. We look forward to showing the world what Tesla and SolarCity can achieve together.
