Investing.com – Kimbal Musk, the younger brother of the CEO of Tesla (NASDAQ :), has made more than $ 7 million trading shares of the electric vehicle manufacturer: He acquired shares through options and sold them the same day at an average price of 600 dollars more than you paid for them.

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Tesla reveals that Kimbal, that sits on the company’s board of directors, exercised options to buy 12,000 common shares on April 1 at a price of $ 74.17 per share, for $ 890,040.00.

In net terms, Kimbal made $ 7,220,109.46.

The company said the stock sales were part of a Rule 10b5-1 business plan adopted by Kimbal on May 19, 2020.
