Twitter’s stock has been halted after Elon Musk has reportedly agreed once again to proceed with the deal at the original price of $54.20.

It is thus far unclear what sparked the reversal as court proceedings were set to begin this month in regards to suits from each side.

Three weeks ago, Twitter’s shareholders voted to approve the deal with Elon Musk to buy the company for $44B.

The decision was reportedly made in a short conference call with investors from the company’s San Francisco headquarters.

Musk made the proposal of buying the company in a letter to Twitter, according to Bloomberg.
