“Mr. Musk is terminating the merger agreement because Twitter is in material breach of multiple provisions of that agreement, appears to have made false and misleading representations upon which Mr Musk relied when entering into the merger agreement, and is likely to suffer a Company Material Adverse Effect.”

Is Musk’s claim of not buying Twitter as it lacks to supply sufficient data and information genuine? Further, the letter from the lawyer reads,

Twitter has failed or refused to provide this information. Sometimes Twitter has ignored Mr Musk’s requests, sometimes it has rejected them for reasons that appear to be unjustified, and sometimes it has claimed to comply while giving Mr Musk incomplete or unusable information.

It’s not the first time Musk had been controversial on Twitter let’s see what the analyst from Wedbush has to say. Is the court battle necessary or not? While the situation will turn adverse to Twitter for either case.

Analysts stick to the idea that the break-up would not only have significant damage to Twitter’s valuation but also to its ability to seek a new buyer.

One of the analysts from the top Nasdaq liquidity providers, Wedbush Dan Ives says,

“This is a disaster scenario for Twitter and its board as now the company will battle Musk in an elongated court battle to recoup the deal and/or the breakup fee of $1bn at a minimum.”
