Well according to some it was a strategy to get rid of the shortsellers trying to ruin the company for profit. If that's the case and if it worked, 40 million to save Tesla is a bargain.

There's always short sellers though, and likely they'll still be there until Tesla supply can meet demand.

If anything, getting removed as chairman would make the short sellers happy go away, but he could have just stepped down and saved the $.
