The Board of Directors (the “Board”) and management of Tesla, Inc. (“Tesla”) value, and believe that Tesla’s stockholders appreciate, the interpersonal connection and dynamic that is possible only with a live in-person annual meeting of stockholders. Therefore, due to continuing restrictions on in-person gatherings imposed by the relevant governmental authorities, Tesla is postponing its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the2020 Annual Meeting”), which was previously scheduled to be held on Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at 2:30 p.m. Pacific Time, at the Computer History Museum located at 1401 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View, CA 94043. Certain specific dates, locations and presentation formats that will maximize the probability of an informative in-person event are under consideration, and Tesla will announce further details regarding the finalized date, location and format of the 2020 Annual Meeting at a later date.

 

On June 19, 2020 and June 21, 2020, Elon Musk, Tesla’s Chief Executive Officer, published the following posts on his Twitter account (http://twitter.com/elonmusk):
