Tesla Inc. said on Tuesday it plans to raise up to $5 billion through a share sale program to be conducted by Wall Street’s main brokerages.
The sales agents include major banks such as Goldman Sachs & Co, Bank of America Securities Inc, Citigroup Global Markets Inc and Morgan Stanley & Co, the EV maker said in a filing.
Tesla shares, which rose about 8 percent in early premarket trading, gained about 3 percent after the news.
The move comes a day after a 5-for-1 stock split took effect, Tesla’s first since its initial public offering about a decade ago.
The company’s high-flying stock has soared over 70 percent since its split was announced on Aug. 11, and was trading at over $2,000 on Friday on a split-adjusted basis. The stock was one of the costliest on Wall Street.
