Elon Musk is still the largest Tesla (TSLA) shareholder, even after selling 10% of his shares in the company last year.

According to a new regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Musk currently owns 231,715,206 shares in Tesla.

The holdings represent a 21.2% stake in the company, down slightly from the 22.4% stake he held at this time last year.

At current share prices the holdings are worth about $202,000,000,000 (billion).

The figures were published today in an amendment to a SC 13G originally filed with the SEC on February 8, 2022.

So how is Musk’s stake in Tesla down only 1.2% after selling 10% of his shares last year?

Many of the shares that Musk sold sold were gained after converting stock options that were set to expire before the end of 2021.

The options, referred to as tranches, were part of the CEO’s compensation plan, allowing him to buy millions of shares at prices well below the current market value.

Along with selling some of his shares, Musk also donated more than $5.5 billion worth to an unnamed charity in November.

The donation was revealed in a separate regulatory filing published on Tuesday.
