Transcript of video in post:


Andrew Ross Sorkin: …the subject of the column…telling me he has now agreed to stay on as CEO of Tesla for the next decade. There’d been a lot of speculation that he’d be stepping down in the next two to three years. He had said that once the completion of the Model S, or the Model 3 rather, was up and running that he might not stay at the company at least as the CEO. But Tesla is now announcing a radical new compensation plan. It could be perhaps the most radical compensation plan in history. Musk’s compensation is going to be tied directly to the company’s performance. The executive will receive no guaranteed compensation of any kind at all. He gets no salary, cash bonus, equity. He only gets equity that vests over time, but only if he reaches these hurdle rates which are, dare I say, crazy. So, right now the company is worth $59 billion, they run at $50 billion increments, so if he gets the company to $100 billion…


You’re just talking market capitalization – not based on revenue or the number of…production?


There’s going to be two metrics at each step. So, the first step is he has to get the company to $100 billion and reach these operational and adjusted EBITDA and revenue number. If he doesn’t get either of them, he gets nothing.


That’s kind of a weird way to break it down based on market capitalization.


If he gets to $150 and has to hit the operational numbers…


But I mean the market can be irrational, so you can’t control that.


At each $50 billion number, he collects 1% of the company. If, somehow, magically, he would get the company to $650 billion, which is literally what the plan calls for, if you can believe this, he would collect the equivalent of about $55 billion in compensation. Otherwise, he gets absolutely nothing, zero.


What if he gets it to $650 billion and then it immediately collapses to $500 billion, is it just hitting that market capitalization milestone that matters, is it keeping it there for a certain time?


Here’s where it gets even more interesting, the shares vest. But then he has to hold the shares for five years.
