According to CNN’s David Faber, “it seems unlikely” Musk will get help from private investment companies in funding his $ 43 billion bid to buy Twitter and make it private.

“The more I report, the less I believe there is someone else who can really show up,” Faber told CNBC’s “Scream in the Street” on Tuesday.

Although reports suggest that private investment companies Apollo and Thoma Bravo may be interested in joining as lenders, Faber said profit rates “don’t work”. And Apollo is not interested in joining a consortium of private investment to acquire the company on social media, according to sources who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.

While Musk is considered the richest man in the world, most of his assets are tied to Tesla shares, which means he will likely have to either sell shares or borrow money to fund the deal.

“Yeah, he can do it, we know that,” Faber said. “But how will he do it? Did he really decide to jeopardize so much of his capital?”

“Private capital is not real. It’s all about marketing,” Faber said.

Analysts at Gordon Haskett Research Advisors wrote in a note Tuesday that the Wall Street Journal report, which for the first time indicated that Apollo was considering a deal with Twitter, “did not impress us much, mainly because we assumed most ordinary suspects , including Apollo, are updating their models. ”

But analysts said Apollo could potentially help a firm like Thoma Bravo with funding, noting that it “played a similar role in some other Bravo deals.”

Apollo and Tom Bravo did not immediately respond to CNBC’s requests for comment.
