Tesla Inc.’s financing arrangements in China may be the subject of the Securities and Exchange Commission inquiry that the electric-car maker revealed last week, according to analysts at Evercore ISI.
The financing Tesla lined up from local banks last year may have allowed the carmaker to delay recognition of capital expenditures, Chris McNally, who rates Tesla shares the equivalent of a sell, stated in a Feb. 14 report. The Evercore analyst stated the arrangements also probably help explain how Tesla spent just $1.3B on capex last year, a little over half its budget for as much as $2.5B.
“It’s possible that TSLA’s Shanghai factory and extremely limited capex may be what the SEC is looking into,” McNally wrote. Representatives for Tesla didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment, and Judy Burns, an SEC spokeswoman, declined to comment.
