Reuters first to report Lucid Motors nears SPAC deal as Klein launches financing

Reuters was first to report that luxury electric vehicle maker Lucid Motors Inc is getting close to a deal to go public at a roughly $12-billion valuation after veteran dealmaker Michael Klein’s blank-check acquisition firm launched a financing effort to back the transaction. The merger between Lucid and Klein’s Churchill Capital IV Corp would be the biggest in a string of deals by electric vehicle makers such as Nikola Corp and Fisker Inc that have gone public by combining with special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). Churchill Capital IV’s stock spiked on the news and was trading up around 30% at $52.20.
