The downfall of Twitter

The downfall of Twitter

Investors were surprised by Elon Musk's recent interest in buying social network Twitter. This type of investment does not fit at all into the usual business interests of the famous visionary and many have speculated about his reasons for the buyout. Today, everything is different and Musk's interest in Twitter has dried up. Let's take a closer look at what happened and how the original deal to buy out the American firm may end.

The original deal

It didn't take long and as soon as Musk showed interest in acquiring the social network, an offer came from the company, subsequently both parties came to an agreement. The deal was the sale of Twitter to billionaire Musk for USD 44 billion at a price of USD 54.20 per share.* Later, problems began to emerge as the visionary questioned the percentage of spam accounts below 5% reported by the social network and demanded documents to investigate the real situation. The opinions of the parties involved began to diverge here, Musk claiming that the company did not provide him with the necessary data he needed to assess the number of fake or spam accounts on the platform, on the contrary, Twitter presents that all the necessary documents have been supplied from their side.

The cancellation of the acquisition and the consequences for Twitter

The official statement states that Elon Musk wants to terminate the deal to buy Twitter. The reason for the withdrawal from the deal is the lack of information on the number of spam and fake accounts by Twitter. However, the latter will not give up so easily and is determined to close the deal with the billionaire at a pre-agreed price and terms. Thus, the battle between the parties is starting these days and it is difficult to predict who will emerge as the winner from this dispute, as several factors influence the outcome. However, the fact remains that Twitter's share price has fallen rapidly to around USD 32 per share. *

*Twitter's stock performance over the past 5 years. (Source: Investing)

At the beginning of the week, the stock lost 11% to close at $32.65. If we compare the current state with the stock's value circa April, when the whole buyout thing started, we see a drop of about 33% today. * The performance of the stock will depend on how the whole dispute turns out[1].

And how will it play out?

The end of the litigation may have different scenarios. Accurately predicting the outcome is difficult but there are some possibilities to end this drama, and these could fundamentally affect the direction of Twitter's stock performance. Walking away from the deal won't be easy for Musk. The most likely alternative may be that Musk pays a $1 billion termination penalty and Twitter continues to operate at a lower valuation than the original $44 billion.[2]
