Elon Musk and his SolarCity executive cousins have purchased US$100 million of the company’s latest bond issue.
SEC filings show that Musk personally purchased US$65 million worth, while CEO Lyndon Rive and CTO Peter Rive purchased US$17.5 million worth each. The US$124 million solar bond issue was launched on the 17 August. The company also announced that the Rive's would waive their salaries as a round of job cuts approached.
Musk has previously purchased SolarCity bonds via his SpaceX company.
The move further entwines Musk, already SolarCity’s largest shareholder, with SolarCity ahead of a proposed all-stock acquisition by Tesla.
