Latest SPAC News: Lucid investors could be forced to endure windfall, and Aurora says its next generation hardware kit will debut later this year

Lucid’s SPAC Investors Could Be Forced to Endure a Windfall

With Lucid (NASDAQ:LCID) hovering around $21.70, investors could almost double their money. However, the catch is that if Lucid closes above $18 for 20 of 30 trading days — a hurdle cleared as of this week — it can demand that public holders use the warrants right now.

This means investors would lose their risk-free chance to reap huge benefits from the EV revolution if things work out, and anyone who refuses would see their warrants effectively wiped out.

On top of that, investors have to come up with fresh cash to exercise the warrants, with Lucid getting about half a billion dollars. Adding some insult to injury, insiders who hold their own series of private warrants wouldn’t necessarily have to turn them in.


Aurora Closes in On Production Version of Self-Driving Truck Technology

Mountain View, California-based Aurora Innovations (NASDAQ:RTPY) says its new hardware kit Fusion will debut in commercial pilots this year and will lay the foundation for the production version and launch of the trucking and ride-hailing business.
