    Tesla posts its biggest-ever quarterly loss

    Soros Fund Management invested $35 million in the convertible bonds of Tesla, which are due in March 2019, Reuters reports quoting the US Securities and Exchange Commission. This is not the first collusion between Soros and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. In 2016, Soros helped Musk raise $305 million on SolarCity Corp, a debt-laden solar panel firm backed by Musk and a part of Tesla now.

    Tesla has faced many troubles in the last few weeks. Investors are concerned about the company’s ability to produce its cheaper Model 3 sedan. A crash which involved Tesla’s autopilot added concerns about the firm. On Wednesday, Tesla was trading at $283.87 per share, continuing to lose the temporary rebound it saw last week.

    Earlier this week, Musk said the firm undergoing a “thorough reorganization.” In the last year alone, Tesla lost over $2 billion. The company was losing $6,500 every minute and needs another $2 billion to get through the current year, according Bloomberg estimates. The problems continued this year after the company lost almost $710 million in the first quarter of 2018.
