Ugh. I just thought of a MonkeyWrench ex machina bizarre undesirednessmenthoodship, as follows (===>As per my MOD posts, ALL below are suppositions!<===) 1. Time to deal-completion takes 2 quarters 2. Those two quarters show nice profits 3. Therefore, the last hurdle for S&P 500 inclusion is passed 4. TSLA thus added to that gorilla of all Indices and enormous amounts of its shares need be purchased by such index funds ..... And this at a time when the last thing the privatization path needs is for such a quickly-needed forced selling. Yuck. Sooooooo....has anyone been deep enough into the weeds to know if an entity can forcibly excuse itself from being entered into this (or other) Index? I’ll be surprised if any Index creator ever contemplated that outcome!
