Not putting all your eggs in one basket.

Getting a full tax abatement from CoA seems doubtful.

I would hypothesize that Samsung having a second, discrete location is actually better for them. It allows them to be on a separate power grid and a different source of water.

I hope they go with Taylor and Wilco and tell CoA and Travis County to go pound sand! Now Samsung has the negotiating power and CoA and TC are going to miss out on one of the biggest investments ever. Not surprised though.

Pretty standard negotiating tactic. This is how loads of sports teams are getting new stadiums nowadays.

Pick a city that wants growth and get them to promise everything you want then go to the place you want to go and ask them to match the offer.

Now that Travis County is having problems with Tesla, they might not jump into another agreement so quickly. I guess it depends how bad the trouble is.

“Permitting and compliance” and “other issues” that would for some reason call for changes to the initial agreement between Tesla and the county.
