The filing showed Ellison will contribute the largest amount at $1 billion. Sequoia has committed $800 million, Binance will contribute $500 million, and Fidelity has pledged $316 million. Qatar Holding will also contribute $375 million.
In the filing, Musk noted that he is open to receiving “additional financing commitments to fund additional portions of the total Merger Consideration.” Should additional financial contributions be made, he added they “may replace portions of the financing commitments previously reported.”
With the new financial commitments, Musk cut his margin loan of $12.5 billion, taken with a group of lenders, by half to $6.25 billion.
Saudi Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal al Saud previously committed the rolling of his nearly 35 million shares into the bid, worth around $1.7 billion.
Musk has given shareholders the option of contributing their shares toward the Twitter buyout.
