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

From Oracle Corp (NYSE:ORCL)’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 have now thrown their weight behind the offer.

Here’s how the deal stacks up:

** Musk increased his financing commitment to $27.25 billion, from $21 billion – including the new $7.14 billion funding announced on Thursday

** The margin loan from Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) tied to his Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock stands at $6.25 billion, down from $12.5 billion announced on April 21

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