(Reuters) -Elon Musk has won the backing of some of the world’s wealthiest investors for his $44 billion takeover of Twitter Inc.

From Oracle Corp’s co-founder Larry Ellison, a self-proclaimed close friend of Musk, to Saudi Arabian investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who had earlier rejected the takeover bid, a bunch of investors had thrown their weight behind the offer.

Musk on Wednesday pledged an additional $6.25 billion in equity financing, reducing the billionaire’s margin loan against his Tesla Inc shares to zero.

Here’s how the deal stacks up:

** Musk increased his financing commitment to $33.5 billion, from $27.25 billion – including the $7.14 billion funding announced earlier in May.

** The margin loan from Morgan Stanley tied to his Tesla stock, which stood at $6.25 billion, has now been removed from the financing equation.

** Musk has secured commitments from banks for $13 billion in loans secured against Twitter shares
