NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Tesla Motors (TSLA) expects its proposed acquisition of renewable energy company SolarCity (SCTY) to add more than $500 million of cash to Tesla's balance sheet over the next three years.
Tesla also expects SolarCity to "immediately account for 40% of the assets of the combined company on a historical cost basis" and contribute more than $1 billion in revenue in 2017.
The majority of SolarCity's debt is for project financing, non-recourse and "more than offset by the cash flows from customer payments," according to a company statement.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is the chairman of SolarCity.
The planned merger was worth $2.6 billion when it was publicly announced earlier this year.
Shares of Tesla and SolarCity were slightly higher in after-hours trading on Tuesday.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "sell" with a ratings score of D+.
Tesla's weaknesses include a generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.
