But also, the banks would not be thinking of selling that debt immediatelybut they would keep it until the economic situation improves and they can sell it at a higher price, which would make it the largest “hung” purchase in history, according to The Wall Street Journal.

According to the media specialized in economic news, the banks that help finance the purchase, among which are Morgan Stanley, Bank of America or Barclays, they think to ‘hang’ (ie wait) the sale of the remaining debt to avoid losses.

The media recalls that at the beginning of the year Banks agreed to finance Tesla founder before finding investors who were willing to participate in the acquisition of Twitter, but the increase in interest rates and the announcement of an impending recession added difficulties to the business.

In any case, sources close to this purchase told the Wall Street Journal that the banks expect sell part of the debt contracted at the beginning of 2023, if the agreement is finalized and market prices improve.
