Betty Liu reports that Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk met early last year with Apple's head of mergers and acquisitions on Bloomberg Television's "In The Loop."
Though Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk didn't discuss the Tesla battery giga factory or the Tesla-Apple meet-up during the earnings call, he did hold a phone interview with Bloomberg in which both topics (and way more) were discussed.
On the Apple meet-up, Musk stated: "We had conversations with Apple. I can't comment on whether those revolved around any kind of acquisition."
The description that goes along with the Bloomberg video is as follows:
"Elon Musk, chief executive officer of Tesla Motors Inc., talks about the company's plans for a "gigafactory" to supply batteries, Model X SUV, talks with Apple Inc. and fourth-quarter profit. Tesla reported net income that beat analysts' estimates and projected a 55 percent increase in vehicle deliveries. Musk speaks with Betty Liu on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg West."
