Before Brexit took over, Tesla Motorss (TSLA) bid to takeover SolarCity(SCTY)was the big news, with analysts for and against the merger.
Jasper Juinen/Bloomberg News
Oppenheimers Colin Rusch and his team reiterated a Perform rating on the stock today, but introduced new estimate around the deal. Rusch writes that the working capital management and stationary power system refinancing could the essential variables that make or break the merger, and the newly combined company will need cash in four main areas: stationary power capex (primarily solar), auto capex, working capital, and operating lease obligations.
He expects that Tesla will raise $3.6 billion in asset-backed debt from this quarter through 2018 to get its working capital, and Solar City will need $7.8 billion in financing through new debt, as well as refinancing.
