Nikola founder quits amid fraud allegations
"Of electric vehicle maker Nicola are sliding after the resignation of its founder and executive chairman. The stock is down more than 17%. Today. Let's see what's going on. Jeff Gilbert is here. CBS Auto reporter based in Detroit. Jeff, What's going on with Nicola? You know Nikola was a darling of Wall Street. Just a few years ago. Nickel, Of course, the first name of inventor Nikola Tesla. So, obviously you got that comparison right to begin with. They want to make an electric pick up front. Wall Street thought it was great. GM thought it was great, so they made a $2 billion investment in that company. And now all of a sudden, there are allegations against the chairman. He leaves and he was replaced by somebody with very close ties to General motors and explain that connection because GM obviously has a lot riding on this exactly. Two weeks ago, GM announced that it's taken an 11% stake in the company work. $2 billion. They didn't pay a billion dollars to billion dollars, but they're going to let Nikola produced their vehicle in in a GM facility. Well, one of the board members of Nicholas, a man named Steve Girsky, who had been a General Motors vice here, There are many reports that he's a man who actually orchestrated the deal and now as Nicholas CEO and founder, or whether chairman and founder leaves Girsky becomes the new chairman of Nicholas. So it's a very interesting tie up that connects him a lot more closely to General Motors. And the hope. Of course, on the part of investors is that the technology is what Nicholas says. It's going to be, and also that they're going to be able to actually produce this stuff. Exactly, And that was a concern raised by an investor who said that he didn't feel they really had the technology behind some of their claims. GM defended them, They said. They did their due diligence, and GM is giving them a place to produce his vehicle. They haven't said yet, so GM does and some gravitas for lack of a better word. To Nikola, but still got a lot of investors concerned. I haven't seen the latest numbers, but the stock has really been falling today. Yeah, it's down about 17.5%. So a significant fall for sure. Thank you so much. That is Jeff Gilbert, CBS Auto reporter based in Detroit.
