Musk’s money manager, Jared Birchall, contacted potential investors this week offering to sell shares of Twitter at $54.20 — the same price that Musk said he “obviously overpaid” to take the company private in October.

Birchall wrote to investors in an email that they had received numerous requests to invest in Twitter and were offering a follow-on equity offering at the original price and terms, aiming to close the deal by the end of the year.
