Rony Abovitz, founder and chief executive of the much-hyped augmented-reality startup Magic Leap, is stepping down, Business Insider reported Thursday, citing an internal memo it acquired. In the same memo, Abovitz reportedly said the company has also secured a new round of funding to keep it afloat. Abovitz will reportedly stay on at the company as an active search is conducted to find his replacement. The company, founded in 2011, has raised about $3 billion over 10 funding rounds, according to CrunchBase. The company was the subject of much buzz several years ago as it touted its secretive, allegedly game-changing augmented-reality technology, but its only product, a headset released in 2018, has failed to generate significant sales. In April, Magic Leap laid off about half of its 2,000 employees,Bloomberg news reported, and reportedly pivoted from consumer to enterprise products.

The Federal Reserve's balance sheet rose marginally to $7.1 trillion as of Wednesday, up from $7.04 trillion last week. A large chunk of that growth came from a $33 billion increase in the central bank's emergency lending programs aimed at buying corporate bonds. But that increase in the lending facilities reflects the Treasury Department's equity contributions. Taking that into account, the facilities only saw a $1.2 billion increase in buying of corporate debt exchange-traded funds.

Shares of Williams-Sonoma Inc. rallied more than 9% in the extended session Thursday after the retailer said its online business experienced "breakout" growth in the latter part of the first quarter and "continues to accelerate," making up for store closures amid the coronavirus pandemic. Williams-Sonoma said it earned $35 million, or 45 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with $53 million, or 66 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Adjusted for one-time items, the company earned 74 cents a share, compared with 81 cents a year ago. Sales reached $1.24 billion, flat in comparison with a year ago, thanks to "a significant acceleration in e-commerce revenue growth to over 30%," the company said. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected earnings of 15 cents a share on sales of $1.1 billion. The company did not provide guidance due to the pandemic and "the continuing macroeconomic uncertainty that could impact its performance." Shares of Williams-Sonoma ended the regular trading day down 0.4%.

Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk has earned the first of 12 tranches upon hitting milestones which part of his compensation hinged, with Musk now having the option to buy about 1.7 million Tesla shares at $350.02 a share, the company said in a filing late Thursday. That would mean a profit around $775 million for the CEO; Tesla shares ended Thursday at $805.81. As MarketWatch has reported, as part of a performance-award agreement in Musk's 2018 compensation package, the executive would stand to receive options to purchase shares if Tesla reaches certain benchmarks, an important one being a market capitalization averaging $100 billion for six months. It was not clear whether Musk had exercised his options. The filing also set the Tesla's general meeting for July 7 in Mountain View, Calif.

Cisco Systems Inc. announced Thursday afternoon that it intends to acquire ThousandEyes, a security-software company, reportedly for close to $1 billion.

U.S. stocks finished in negative territory Thursday, with gains evaporating within the final hour of trade as markets digested a report that President Donald Trump was set to hold a news conference on China on Friday. Word of an event comes as tensions between China and the U.S. have ratcheted higher, particularly as Beijing was seen threatening the autonomy of Hong Kong. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 147.63 points, or 0.6%, at 25,400.64, well off its best level at 25,758.79, while the S&P 500 index ended off 0.2% at 3,029.73 and the Nasdaq Composite Index declined 0.5% at 9,368.99. The U.S. on Wednesday said it no longer considered Hong Kong highly autonomous under a 1992 law, a move that could lead to measures to limit Hong Kong's trade privileges and open the door to sanctions against individuals the U.S. sees as suppressing civil liberties in the territory. Also on Thursday, the governments of the U.S., Australia, Canada and the U.K. issued a joint statement reiterating their "deep concern regarding Beijing's decision to impose a national security law on Hong Kong," after China's parliament, the National People's Congress passed legislation Thursday that could greatly curtail democratic freedoms.
