Equilar has included Agrawal’s base salary for a year and the accelerated vesting of all equity awards. This is calculated based on Musk’s $54.20 per share offer and the company’s recent proxy statements.

At the moment it is not clear how long it will take for the acquisition process to be completed. Musk has not revealed his plans for the company, but we expect the Tesla cofounder to make major changes to the platform.
