According to Reuters , Musk's reward is made up of a series of possible offsets on stocks that are based on market capitalization and operating targets.

To activate the fourth tranche of rewards, the billionaire's company still has to reach targets related to profitability and income. This could happen in the third quarter report.

The current price of the automaker's shares is $ 420 each, Elon Musk could sell the shares related to the next tranche, plus the other three tranches acquired in recent months for a combined profit of $ 11.8 billion, is that is, almost three billion dollars per tranche.
