A few years ago in the network actively discussed information about the plans of Apple to buy Tesla or placed with the manufacturer of the electric car partnership agreement. But official confirmation of these rumors has not received. However, recently Roth Capital Partners analyst Craig Irwin in an interview with CNBC said that the cupertinos really planning to buy a Tesla.
According to experts, in 2013, Apple was ready to acquire a manufacturer of electric cars for a substantial sum – more than $ 30 billion. The sources of Irving’s claim that the cupertinos were willing to pay for one share of Tesla’s $ 240, when the market price is not above $ 190. However, for unknown reasons, the deal did not take place.
At the moment shares of one of the most famous manufacturers of electric cars fluctuate around the level of $ 200. While just recently the Executive Director of Tesla Ilon Musk said that in the next 10 months, the company may go bankrupt.
It is worth noting that in recent years, Apple is actively poaching employees from Tesla. The exact figure of people who decided to start working in the Apple company, is now unknown. However, over time, Apple moved a few designers and a number of engineers.
