Nikola Corporation

CNH è uno degli investitori [entrato nell'ultimo round privato, round D]

con la quotazione raccoglierà circa $500m per sviluppo rete stazioni di refill [idrogeno] e sviluppo camion

ha un backlog ordini di tutto rispetto [14k veicoli], produce tre modelli [Nikola One, Two, Three]

“We are on a roll. You couldn’t ask for better news for the energy and tech industry,” Nikola founder and CEO Trevor Milton said in a statement on Tuesday. “The world is transitioning to zero-emission platforms and Nikola is the leader for heavy duty vehicles. We believe we have a differentiated business model built on economics, not government subsidies. We now need to double down and speed up the timelines and get to market.”

A serial entrepreneur, Milton founded Nikola in 2015 with personal funds from the sale of his previous company. Nikola has so far released three electric trucks—Nikola One, Nikola Two and Nikola Tre—all potential competitions to Tesla’s conceptual Semi truck. The company said it has secured more than 14,000 pre-orders from industrial clients, which represent over $10 billion in potential revenue and will keep the factory busy for at least 2.5 years.

Nikola Corp to go public at over $3.3 billion valuation
03/03/2020 17:00 RSF
(Adds background, details from release)
March 3 (Reuters) - Electric vehicle maker Nikola Corp said on Tuesday it plans to list on the Nasdaq by merging with a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), backed by investors including Fidelity and ValueAct.

After the reverse merger with VectoIQ Acquisition Corp (VTIQ.O), the combined company will be named Nikola Corp and be valued at more than $3.3 billion, Nikola said. (news)

The transaction will be funded by VectoIQ cash in trust and a $525 million private placement of common stock at $10 per share, led by institutional investors including Fidelity Management & Research Company and ValueAct Spring Fund.

A SPAC uses proceeds from an IPO, along with borrowed funds, to acquire companies that are usually privately held.

Last month, SPAC Far Point Acquisition Corp agreed to acquire shopping tax refund firm Global Blue in a $2.6 billion deal. (news)

Virgin Galactic was taken public in July through a similar merger with Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp.


The Nikola-VectoIQ transaction, expected to close in the second quarter of 2020, has been approved by the boards of both companies and the combined company will be listed on the Nasdaq under the new ticker symbol NKLA.

The merged company will be led by Trevor Milton, CEO of Nikola, and controlled by Nikola shareholders.

Nikola's Chief Financial Officer Kim Brady will continue in his role after the deal, the company said.

Vedo che ora VTIQ prezza a $11 .. entrare ora e prendersi il reverse merger potrebbe essere una strategia sensata ? Che ne pensi ?

difficile a dirsi

se guardiamo all'operazione di VG [tecnicamente identica, ie merge con SPAC con cassa], si potrebbe pensare che convenga aspettare il merge ed entrare nelle settimane successive [sotto al pricing di ingresso fondatori ie $10]

ma non è detto si ripeta

nella view di lungo questi livelli [premio 10%] sono sicuramente accettabili ... nel breve, come sempre, potremmo avere migliori occasioni d'ingresso fra un pò [soprattutto date le circostanze e considerato che N è stata valutata - a fini concambio - pre-covid ... quindi troppo]

io non sono ancora entrato [ed entrerò di sicuro]

Russell joined Nikola in 2019 after a career at metals manufacturer Worthington Industries (NYSE: WOR), where he was president and chief operating officer from 2012-2018. He remembers the dread of the 2008-09 Great Recession when he was president of WOR subsidiary Worthington Steel.

“At one point, we were off more than 50%. And that was the worst downturn that anybody I knew in the automotive industry, had ever seen,” he said. “What you’re looking at right now is some [manufacturers] going into their second month on zero. That’s even worse than in 2008-09, which was the worst that anybody could remember at the time.”

Russell added, “Nikola is affected by [coronavirus] almost the least you could imagine based on the fact that our work at this point is still mostly virtual.”

ora si viaggia intorno ai $15 ... back to highs ... not bad

intanto ho trovato questa notizia ... la pensavo solo collaborazione industriale ... è in realtà una partnership

Nikola Motor, an Arizona startup that wants to shake up the trucking world with zero-emission hydrogen and battery-powered semis, is making progress toward a $1 billion fundraising goal to get its technology on the road as CNH Industrial committed to a quarter of that amount.

CNH, a European maker of heavy-duty work vehicles, is investing $250 million into a Series D round by Phoenix-based Nikola, which aims to start shipping its fuel-cell trucks and opening hydrogen-fuel stations to keep them powered up from 2022. It’s the biggest outside investment in Nikola to date, which previously raised at least $265 million and has an estimated pre-money valuation of $3 billion.

As part of the deal, CNH’s Iveco and FPT truck and powertrain units will provide engineering and manufacturing assistance to Nikola, which needs the funding to build a truck assembly plant near Phoenix and a network of hydrogen fuel and electric-vehicle charging stations. Nikola is already working with truck industry heavyweights including Bosch and Meritor, while Norway’s NEL Hydrogen is providing technology for its fuel stations that will be used by fleet customers like beermaker Anheuser-Busch, which is leasing up to 800 Nikola semi-trucks.

Nikola executes reverse merger with VectoIQ; now to be listed on NASDAQ; BEV and FCEV trucks - Green Car Congress

Nikola Going Public, Expects U.S. Electric Truck Production to Start Next Year - Equipment - Trucking Info


The company noted it already has $10 billion worth of reservations for its fuel-cell electric trucks. Although it has not yet disclosed any battery-electric truck reservations, the company said negotiations are entering final stages for “large binding orders” for battery-electric trucks. The company said it expects to go from $150 million of projected revenue in 2021 to over $3 billion by 2024. That’s assuming 600 battery-electric trucks in 2021, and 7,000 battery-electric and 5,000 fuel-cell-electric trucks in 2024.

VTIQ salita a 16$ ... avete capito quando farà il reverse merge ?
