Elon Musk’s xAI files with SEC for private sale of $1B in unregistered securities

“Spicy” AI chatbot Grok hasn’t been seen by the public yet, but it’ll be worth plenty after this securities issue.

Elon Musk’s X-linked artificial intelligence modeler xAI has an agreement for the private sale of $865.3 million in unregistered equity securities, according to a filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission made on Dec.

XAI filed the SEC’s Form D to allow it to engage in the private sale of securities without registration.

Musk announced the launch of xAI in July and claimed its goal was to “understand the universe.” He claimed Grok would perform better than ChatGPT and, in November, got into an online squabble over it with OpenAI (the creator of ChatGPT) co-founder and CEO Sam Altman.
