Former Twitter CEO Dorsey faces Tuesday deposition in Musk case

Former Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) CEO Jack Dorsey will be deposed Tuesday as part of the company's lawsuit against Elon Musk, in conjunction with a new filing from the billionaire. Musk has purported to terminate a $44B deal to acquire Twitter and take it private, and is now less than a month away from a five-day trial in Delaware's Court of Chancery where Twitter is looking to compel Musk to complete the deal. Both sides of Twitter v. Musk will get to question Dorsey, though Musk has been pressing to get him under oath as Dorsey had been a strong backer of the takeover bid from Musk, a longtime friend. In his recently amended counterclaim, Musk is leaning heavily on the public revelations of whistleblower (and former Twitter security chief) Peiter "Mudge" Zatko to get the deal canceled.

Early votes show Twitter cruising toward OK of Musk buyout - WSJ

Early voting suggests that Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) is set to gain approval of its $44B deal to be acquired and taken private by billionaire Elon Musk, the WSJ reports - not too surprising, as Twitter's $41.41 share price still sits at a near-24% discount to Musk's $54.20 per share offer. Twitter's formal vote arrives Tuesday morning. But the early indications are that the deal will pass by a wide margin, according to the report. Meanwhile, Musk himself hasn't voted his 9.6% stake - and after trying multiple avenues to get out of the deal, it would be awkward for him to vote his stake against his own takeover - and the transaction requires him to vote his share in favor of the deal - but moreso if he voted for the deal he's been trying to cancel by any means necessary. He's likely to vote present, which cedes power on that stake to the board (which also supports the transaction). Other big shareholders, including index-fund managers, are set to support the deal, the WSJ noted. Twitter stock (TWTR) is up 0.5% after hours. Earlier, Wedbush went over potential scenarios for Twitter v. Musk and concluded there's a high possibility of a negotiated settlement before the scheduled October trial.

Twitter ticks higher as judge criticizes Musk lawyer over discovery process

Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) quickly ticked higher, hitting session highs, after a judge criticized Elon Musk's attorneys at a hearing over the aborted takeover. Chancellor Kathaleen McCormick criticized Musk's lawyers about some document discovery. The hearing is being held as Musk's attorneys seek to delay a trial scheduled for next month. Last Tuesday Musk's legal team asked to move his trial over his Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) merger deal to November, from its planned October start, in a new rack of filings aimed at amending his counterclaims in the case. Also see from last month  Twitter, Musk clashed in hearing over data requests tied to acquisition deal. Developing story ...

Twitter, Musk battle gets more complex with whistleblower situation, Wedbush says

The ongoing legal battle between Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) and billionaire Elon Musk over control over the embattled social network has gotten more complex after a former executive alleged the company lied about its bots situation, investment firm Wedbush Securities said on Tuesday. Analyst Dan Ives, who rates Twitter (TWTR) shares neutral, noted that Wall Street saw the company as having a "clear win" in court against Musk when it goes to trial in October. However, allegations made by former security chief and Twitter executive Peiter "Mudge" Zatko could give the world's richest man "a much needed small victory." "There is also a number of other legal back and forths going on in this Twitter case, but ultimately the Zatko development and timing is a huge potential win for Musk which could complicate the Twitter case," Ives wrote in a note to clients. As such, there could be a number of ways this situation plays out, including a settlement between the parties, the breakup fee being paid, an enforcement of the deal or a "myriad" of other outcomes. Nonetheless, Ives still believes that there are two scenarios that are most likely to occur once the trial ends: The court enforces "specific performance" and Musk is forced to pay $54.20 per share in cash for Twitter (TWTR), which has already been agreed upon. Musk needs to settle and winds up paying "significant" damages to Twitter (TWTR) ranging between $5B and $10B, based on the court's ruling.
