Tesla stock is on a tear that seemingly won’t slow down.

So far this year, Tesla stock has gained more than 130%, outpacing the broader market and in recent weeks notching several all-time highs on reports of solid sales in China and CEO Elon Musk’s own directive to ramp up production of its commercial semi-truck.

The skyrocketing price has put Musk closer than ever to a major payout that’s part of his moonshot compensation package. In a recent SEC filing, Tesla’s board confirmed that Musk had met requirements to unlock the first tier of the massive payday — the company’s average value on the stock market for the past six months in May went above $100 billion for the first time.

The SEC filing was a stamp of approval for Musk to receive the first $700 million in stock options from the pay deal. All in, the compensation package could be worth as much as $55.8 billion, according to Tesla’s own estimate in the proxy statement laying out the plan.

But while Musk may take home the most from Tesla’s gains, board members are also benefiting from the surging price. Nine other board members hold Tesla shares, ranging in value from hundreds of thousands of dollars to billions.

To be sure, Tesla board members would have to sell part of their positions to reap any of the stock’s recent gains. And, there’s at least one new board member for whom share information is not yet available — Hiromichi Mizuno, a Japanese pension fund chief, who joined Tesla’s board as its 10th member in April. 

Here’s how many Tesla shares the nine board members hold, and the value of those positions as of the closing price of $935.28 on Friday, June 12.
