U.S. Gov't Wants Early Repayment of Tesla Loan
Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA), the startup electric car-maker that received $465 million in U.S. Energy Department loans, must come up with a speedier repayment schedule after getting a waiver on existing terms.
The Palo Alto, California-based company, led by billionaire Elon Musk, said yesterday in a U.S. regulatory filing (TSLA) that it has until Oct. 31 to submit a proposal for “early repayment” of loan principal to the Energy Department.
Tesla said it received a waiver Sept. 24 from a requirement in the previous loan agreement to maintain a specified current ratio (TSLA) of assets to liabilities, which measures a company’s ability to repay its debts in the next 12 months.
