PR Newswire

CHICAGO, Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Keller Lenkner LLC ("Keller Lenkner") today updates investors on its previously announced securities fraud class action filed against Tesla, Inc. ("Tesla") and its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Elon Musk ("Musk"), and announces the launch of a new dedicated website, www.teslatweets.com.

Keller Lenkner was the first law firm to file suit against Tesla and Musk for their false and misleading statements regarding taking the Company private. The website contains more information about the lawsuit and provides investors an easy way to contact Keller Lenkner to discuss their rights.

The complaint filed by Keller Lenkner charges that Musk and Tesla violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing false and misleading statements regarding taking Tesla private. In particular, at 12:48 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on August 7, 2018, Musk issued a statement via Twitter that "funding" for the deal had been "secured." But Musk was not telling the truth. Rather, he had Tweeted to decimate the Company's short-sellers, who were forced to cover their positions over the succeeding days at artificially inflated prices.

News reports that have emerged since Keller Lenkner filed its complaint lend further support to the allegations that Musk and Tesla violated federal securities laws:

On August 7, 2018, in reaction to Musk's Tweet, the price of Tesla's stock soared to an intra-day high of $387.46, $45.47 above the previous day's closing price, closing at $379.57 per share. The action filed by Keller Lenkner is in the Northern District of California and is captioned Kalman Isaacs v. Elon Musk, et al., No. 3:18-cv-04865.

The plaintiff is represented by Keller Lenkner. For more information about this action, or to discuss your rights or interests as someone harmed by the false and misleading statements, please visit www.teslatweets.com.
