Aren't you misunderstanding the concept of a company going private? It doesn't go private by buying its own shares. That would be kind of bizarre because then no one would own the company. A company goes private when a small group of people buy all the shares and take it off the public stock exchange. They are the ones that would have to raise $400B+. Who has the ability to do that?
