Tesla Rivals are Moving Into High Gear -- and Going Public
"From wondering I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business words daily on this Wednesday August Nineteenth David Brown's on vacation. Tesla has long had an image of being in both good and less good ways without comparison. CEO? Elon Musk stands out for his big vision and sometimes quirky behavior, and until now anyway, Tesla's all electric vehicles have stood head and shoulders above the competition coming from traditional automakers. Competition what competition I can almost imagine musk saying. Oh, but there is plenty coming tesla shares soared two, hundred, fifty percent this year. The company is now the most valuable automaker in the world according to. CNN. That's because Tesla which went public ten years ago is finally profitable. Tesla had a record twenty nineteen in posted its first annual profit last year despite the pandemic it's been profitable this year as well and that kind of performance and the stock market's reward for it is convincing more and more electric vehicle makers to go public and to try to woo customers away from Tesla last week, Ohio Electric Startup, Lordstown Motors Corporation, or L. M. C. said, it plans to go public by the end of the year. It's ticker symbol ride. If the deal goes through, the company will be valued at close to one point five, billion dollars. So who is Lordstown Motors to burst on the scene this way? L. LLC is a spinoff of another electric truckmaker called Workhorse. GROUP LORDS DOWN CEO Steve Burns is the former CEO of workhorse with LLC Burns resurrecting a project that we're course didn't have the money to do the company plans to release an all electric full-size pickup truck the Lordstown endurance in the second half of twenty twenty one that's according to journalist Alan. Adler, writing for trade publication freight waves. The truck will have a range of about two hundred fifty miles on a charge the same as Tesla's sci-fi looking cyber truck it'll toes seventy five hundred pounds alums. He says again, just like the chuck, the endurance will start at fifty two thousand dollars a good deal more than the cyber forty thousand dollar base price. But UNLIKE TESLA LLC plans to sell the endurance to commercial customers buying fleets of trucks since revealing the prototype on June twenty-fifth Ellen Mc says it's received more than twenty seven, thousand pre orders. That's one point four, billion dollars worth of trucks. NCO Burns says its first years worth of trucks are now sold out. That is if it can raise the money, it needs to actually make them l.. AMC. Bought the Lordstown Ohio GM plant that shutdown last year when GM killed the last Chevy Cruz that six million square foot plant needs retooling, which is costly MC plans to raise about six hundred and seventy five million dollars through its IPO. That boatload of cash could help it come through on its boast to be first to market among a group of EV pickup truck competitors in addition to Tesla that group includes Ford GM Nikola and Arabian a company backed by Ford and Amazon. So, here's the obvious L.. He doesn't yet have a product just a prototype if you're wondering how the young startup can go public without a product you should be. L. EMC is one of a handful of electric vehicle makers employing what's called a reverse merger that means the company that plans to make a product like LLC hooks up with the so-called blank check business. It's also called a special purpose acquisition company. SPAC. Is doing the reverse merger with a blank check company called Diamond Peak Holdings. Diamond peak is already publicly traded that means when the merger occurs. LLC. MC becomes public sort of like easing into a coat someone else has been wearing. This back door IPO method is easier for companies to do. They don't have to produce expensive roadshow's. Also, avoid a great deal of financial scrutiny by the SEC. One of the most famous reverse murders was Richard Branson's space company Virgin Galactic, Holdings and Fantasy Sports Company draftkings went public in a three billion dollar reverse merger. Last year according to the A. Times. The number of reverse mergers hit a record high last year. That's because the IPO market was volatile and high profile IPO's like Uber Fared. Poorly. It ain't cheap to build a new car company but Tesla's successes inspiring other entrepreneurs to try and they need oodles of money that helps to explain why another electric truckmaker nickel motors used a reverse merger to go public in June and vehicle-maker. FISKER has a reverse merger in the works. The is green truckmakers may see these back door IPO's as the speediest way to raise the cash needed to fight he'll in musk and rapidly launched their new products. Tesla's promising to deliver the cyber took by late twenty, twenty one which means that the deadline to beat yes. It may be tough to knock Tesla on it's pedestal, but LLC and a raft arrivals are sure going to try.

"Two were ardent trump supporters and the other two were Democrats and I was really struck by it. Because you know we talk so much about how divided this country is and somehow they're able to make it work and I would.

He could have done a lot more for the middle class rather than the upper class. He came here. Said don't sell your house. General Motors is going to be here. Maybe in cars and then a few months later it was closing. People are losing their jobs. Families had to move so any promises that he's made for our area. He did not keep last week they still had a decided which Democratic candidate they would vote for this Tuesday. I asked Erin whether any of this change in Lordstown feels like a good thing for their family. I mean there's some hope on the horizon potentially for the community and you know they're they're watching that but it doesn't really apply to them because there might be new jobs but Kevin Money you know he. He's looking toward retiring. Were with full benefits from GM. And there's only one way to retire with full benefits from GM and that's worth five more years at GM. So from their perspective is a little bit irrelevant. You know what's going on because their fate has already been determined. You know his job is gone and the only way he can continue to have. That job is to commute to Toledo. I missed my dad and most and most and I'm getting ready to go down for the night. All the fear unsoundness wash over me like a wave.

"To understand this circle of industrial life errands. Soccer people across the region who have lived through the ups and downs. And there's this one guy who is watching this story play out for years and business is closely tied to the health of Lordstown as I was getting ready to go down to the Mahoning Valley and talk to people and I said well you know where should I go. Where are the places I need to go and everybody said? Oh well you you gotta go to Ross's so yeah we're going to Ross's eatery and pub which is a local watering hall. That has has long been kind of a hang out for people who worked at the facility. We were there on Thursday afternoon around lunch and it really is one of those places that just seems to draw everybody. You know a wooden bar and kind of the back of the room you not of color and light. There's actually a lot of deer heads every one of them or we want them. And then we met earl- Ross and Earl Ross is one of those guys who just it's like. He was just meant to own a bar. I am one of the founding owners. And I'm a sole proprietor. Now my father and my sister and myself started at one thousand nine hundred seventy. What's changed since one thousand nine hundred seven? Oh what a roller coaster ride that has been. I had hair that change. There is almost ten thousand members working three Shifts General Motors. You know at seven. Am You get to third shifter's getting off they'd come over to eat at three? Pm You'd get the afternoon people or day people getting off and then at eleven pm. You shifter's getting off so three times a day. You had twelve hundred or thirteen. Fourteen hundred people driving through the community. All of these workers didn't lose their jobs overnight. The demise of the GM Lordstown plant was gradual as Chevy Cruz sales slowed GM cut one shift. Then another three thousand workers were laid off between January twenty seventeen in June two thousand eighteen president donald trump who campaigned on a pledge to bring back. All jobs held a rally in Youngstown in the summer of two thousand seventeen just twenty minutes outside of Lordstown. He told workers then they shouldn't worry. Let Me Tell You folks in Ohio under this area. Don't sell your house. Don't sell not salad. We're going to get does values up. We're going to get those jobs coming back. And Wigan a fill up those factories or rip them down a bill brand new ones. So it's going to happen but two years later. The plant shutdown. So who's to blame at the time? There were a lot of explanations batted around there was the impact of the trump administration's tariffs which increased the cost of producing vehicles. Gm pointed the car. Sales folks no longer wanted fuel-efficient starter. Cars like the Chevy Cruz they trucks and as vs and the company they wanted to be nimble to pivot to hybrid and electric vehicles and invest in self driving cars. But there were serious consequences. One study estimated that the closure could cost the region around eight billion dollars in overall economic activity that includes people like Earl Ross. Who told Erin that he depended on those? Gm workers for consistent business as he described it as just the rug being pulled out from under him and suddenly his revenues are down sixty percent and he's got to figure out a way to somehow make it work. The Punch in the gut was the going away party. Crafter going away party after going away party. You know he talked about how since the Lordstown plant closed. He's hosted at least a hundred going away parties in his bar them groups of twenty then groups of fifteen groups of forty coming here for their last drink their last celebration their last dinner before they leave town. Everything was the exact same thing. Can't believe it you know it's sad and then these families split up and these friends split up these people who grew up together riding bikes together in the Mahoning Valley. They got jobs together in the plant. They raise their children together with the wages they were getting from the plant they are from this community and then all of a sudden they're all having going away parties and they're leaving. You met a family that is still struggling with the loss of GM the money family. Tell me about your meeting with them. We met the money family who live in Niles Ohio which is not far from Lordstown. I'm Pauline Karen Claire. Nice to live in a lovely kind of suburban community on a on a street that had a lot of single family homes two car. Garages her having her. So there's Kevin Money Who works for GM his wife Holly? I work For our local city the city of Niles and Three kids Cole. Who's sixteen claire and Brooke and Jules who are thirteen year? Old Twins were identical. Yes well one of you need glasses. And the other doesn't yes tonight's house. We sat in the kitchen. Which was all decked out for Saint Patrick's Day holiday I decorated do. And what was life like for them before the plant closed. You know they describe it as this wonderful family. Life of the five of them together and Kevin. Money was the coach of his kids. Basketball team they talked about how he he loved to take. The family out for treats he just show up spontaneously. Hey kids let's go get a desert when the kids were little. I was able to be a stay at home. Mom with them he worked in. I was able to be home with them and until they went to preschool and then I started working after they were fulltime in elementary school sued. You have a sense you know ten years ago or five years ago that this was coming no no should. It felt like GM that job was going to be forever. We felt it was going to be. Yes yes we were comfortable with him going to work. A lot of people from this area were loyal to General Motors. What did they tell you about finding out about the planned closure so GM announced that it was closing the plant or on allocating Chevy Cruz from that plant in November of two thousand eighteen right then Kevin the applied for transfer. Any you know wanted to try to put himself as close to home as he could and he gets the job in Toledo two and a half three hours away and he gets the word they said right before Christmas he got the notice on December. Twenty second it was a Friday. He received it at work and that was Christmas weekend so he gets to notice it work. Does he call you know he waited to tell me that night? He just probably went into in the room late on the bed and shed some tears and then when I came home he said we need to talk in. We cried and cried My husband and I have a great relationship. He's my best friend and family. We always did everything together. We would sit and have dinner where we go out to dinner together. So just knowing that he wasn't going to be here every night. Go to bed or to have dinner together. We that was traumatizing. And then we held it from the kids until the day after Christmas and remember you described it. That Dad has to leave. Dad has to move away. We're going to try everything that we can to keep life as normal as possible for everybody. Tell your memory of that guy off ahead of slate feeling. Something was going on mainly because my dad's been down in his office at a lot prior to that date in the one day. I'm crying in there. And he ended up talking to me and he said he had put in for a transfer. I had to know why I had no clue or reasoning behind it but I knew something was happening. It was like somebody had honestly died. It the feeling felt like there was a death in the family. And they're actually a lot luckier than most because he's able to come home every weekend and be with his family but they had had this life that they loved. You know this this tight knit family that that did everything together when your husband is added to transfer I mean was there any consideration of quitting GM or. That wasn't something we we talked about all possibilities but for him to leave. Gm with twenty five years in and to walk away from a pension. Hopefully.

We're live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studios where it's six thirty six on Wall Street. Let's get more on one of our top stories this morning. Deutsche Bank, beginning merger talks with Commerzbank after Germany's government gave the green light to jobs cuts as part of a deal Bloomberg opinion columnist to Lisa Martinuzzi joins us in our London bureau for more on this. Nice to talk with you this morning. A Lisa, of course, Georgia and commerce have been struggling for quite some time. So is this is this just a desperation move on their part? It does appear to be very defensive the reason being that. Yes. Of course, there's an awful lot of overlap between the two companies. So a deal combination will only really walk if they can remove that overlap, which of course, would have been thousands. Maybe as many as thirty thousand job cuts, and if not clear whether they would really have the ability to do that in a Cup in an industry now. Labor representatives goes far as having two seats on the boards. So without those cost savings. It really does not make much sense to bring these two together. So how was Germany's government then able to at least give some imprimature to these job cuts. Well, this'll it saves. You know, this is what they're saying on on the one hand appears to be that they will backing them today. The language seems to be a little bit more on the fence. And and somebody that tap Limbaugh. Just though to of a shoulder cessation doesn't actually think the government will give that backing for thousands of job cuts making the the Dale basically next to impossible. So would the would these banks be able to find cost savings? Elsewhere. I mean because you're talking about thirty thousand job cuts, here unfortunate awesome. I mean outside Germany, the businesses don't really overlap both of them have a Deutsche Bank has a very sizable trading business. And in fact, even after combination with comments Bank. Would still be somewhat reliant on that trading business, which is still extremely inefficient. And a combination with comments Mike isn't going to change that. So if you're not able to push through the domestic savings, you really cool the whole into question. So could the German government give some sort of other backing to to make this go forward? I think it seems that it's it's going to be absolutely necessary. And even then it remains to be seen whether the companies would have to tap shareholders for more funds because as a bigger entity, they might be required to hold more capital. We don't know whether they'll have to take any white down on assets as they come together also wrote in capital, and it's not clear that investors would be comfortable. Backing the equity story would still looks frothy questionable with the German government be able to take like a direct role in the the the combined Bank. What we know is they'll they'll still own a stake in comets banker what we understand what Bloomberg news has reported as the likely to maintain that stake. But at the moment, I think that's that's poverty as far as it would go in terms of direct intervention. Now. If this merger were to go forward exactly how big a share of the banking sector would. The combined Bank have in Germany and in the euro zone. I think the precise numbers still needing to be white tab. But you're looking at anywhere between ten fifteen percent of a market that is extremely competitive, and where they are basically competing with hundreds of banks savings banks and cooperative lenders. The don't compete on commercial TOMS and the steel would not change that dynamic potentially sufficiently to give them pricing power, which is what they need to be able to be more profitable in German Cosima banking now as we look at the shares of both these banks they are higher Deutsche Bank up by three point six percent. Commerzbank up nearly seven percent water investors liking about this this morning. Well, I mean, they have been moving in lockstep, and we're talking, you know, very very depressed valuations both banks trade at a deep discount to the book value. And so at the moment, I think nobody's overjoyed with the potential combination impact. But of course, if Commerzbank does taken out that there will be some of the somewhat of the premium, and that's what you're saying. In those two shophouses.

"lordstown ohio" Discussed on KUGN 590 AM
"Professor, Richard Epstein is here. And we're discussing General Motors and Donald Trump recently the announcement by General Motors closing six or seven plants US and Canada. But one plant in particular, Lordstown, Ohio what I'm presuming is a leafy. Leafy town of about four thousand people maybe about thirty five hundred in Trumbull county. But there is the Lordstown Ohio plant, and which employs about fifteen hundred people making the Chevrolet Cruze, which is poorly rated by reviews for the twenty nine thousand nine chiefly I fault it for for charging high end to get safety features that are routine in competitive companies, Richard the reason I mentioned this is because Donald Trump in blasting Mary Barrett with his Twitter that he probably doesn't remember the next day. But in any event, that's the nature of his leadership. I don't think that Donald Trump is is very far from considering the vote in Ohio, which he needs for twenty twenty reelection that was part of his success. Now, that means he cares about the people of Trump county who depend upon the income of these fifteen hundred people working at Lordstown Ohio will now be out of out of a job or looking for new work perhaps. In Tennessee for a nonunion plant that makes lots of money for Toyota, but in any event those workers, Richard they know they're making a mediocre to inferior product. They know for years that nobody wants to buy it. And yet they continue. Do we owe them politically a living is that a worthy is that a worthy enterprise for the president of the United States to try to protect the mediocre or those people in Lordstown, Ohio. Oh, what's the truth? Look, I don't put some is so much on the people of Lordstown, Ohio, my view about this is that they are basically foot soldiers in an army war that is being controlled by generals, which means the unions on the one hand politicians and everybody else the people in Lordstown would be thrilled. If instead of having to make the a Chevy Cruz, they were asked to make one of the high end cars or the SUV's that were tesla or a Toyota or something that we buy. Yes. Now, one of the things about it. The question have to ask yourself. How good is the state of Ohio inviting people to come on in. And you know, if it turns out that you're talking about Tennessee are Alabama with the auto plants seem to locate all the time, they're all right to work states. They're all states in which they seem to have a pretty good business culture, Ohio. It was a much more fractious state with a very different political history. And I'm much more Spro union bent. And so the thing that I think union workers do not understand is that what unions do is they give you the following upset of benefits slightly higher wages ostensibly short-term job protection. But they don't protect you against catastrophic losses. One plan simply decide to close and to move out and go somewhere else, and so all throughout the strong union states in the upper midwest, there's been complete decimation of the workforce's places like Michigan and Ohio. And and and Wisconsin actually went to right to work law and order to stem the flow of but. Even if you were looking at this as a straight objective situation. It's not just what the law is what is likely to be in five years and people think that the political combustive -bility in a state like Ohio or Wisconsin with its changing governors is so forth. That's a less stable environment for investment than is a place like Tennessee or like, Alabama. And so I think what's gonna really happen to many of the folks in Lordstown, Ohio is seeing the writing on the wall seem that there's nothing about this particular plant, which makes it an obvious place for a rehabilitation for making some other cars. It's very difficult to do. This many of them are going to be former Ohio citizens they're going gonna move somewhere else and join a plant that makes car somewhere in Tennessee. Because it turns out that's a much more viable situation. So the union problem has been with us for a very long time. You get a very bright summer for a very short time. But in order to get the high wages in that period. What you do is you run the risk of long-term catastrophic failure when it turns out. That a plan closes down a business goes bankrupt. Or somebody is going to be really co created somewhere else. Donald Trump is not trying to address those issues. And so he's not at all of a help on these kinds of things. But I think the folks in Ohio really have to do is to reexamine the long term stability of their institutions. And I think there's an extreme locked in to do that. And now that we certainly have a very powerful sort of progressive movement taking over large portions of the company of the country and very large portions of the Democratic Party, they faith in unionism is at a new all time high, and that's gonna make it even harder to have the kind of hard. Look reexamination of the basic strategy which made it perfectly sensible for GM to close down this particular plant, and I think everybody knows GM is gonna renegotiate its domestic contracts and to nine twenty nineteen. It's Canadian contracts in twenty twenty as you start to close down plants the union position becomes more fragile because the threat of.

It'll continue till four o'clock Friday morning beyond that mostly cloudy skies and rain heavy at times this afternoon north of the Golden Gate, we'll have highs from the upper fifty s to mid sixties. Maybe you are. I'm Robin young. I'm Jeremy Hobson it's here and now workers at the General Motors plant in Lordstown Ohio are waiting to hear exactly when next year. That factory will go quiet. Takeaway. I'm tansy Nevada on Monday. General Motors hit the brakes. The American car manufacturer announced plans to cut more than fourteen thousand jobs and halt production at five plants across the US and Canada the pain of the announcement was felt from Detroit Michigan extremely disappointing decision. We moved thousands of people under the businesses six churches in hospital to create that assembly plant Lordstown, Ohio. But for the holidays hate to see people get news like this. But this isn't just a GM local issue across the board with any auto manufacturer right now all the way up to Ottawa Ontario, just north of Toronto where workers walked off the job. Are not closing. Our damp flat. Although one hell of a fight. President Trump who's promised repeatedly to bring these kinds of manufacturing jobs back wasn't happy about the change either. This country's done a lot for General Motors. You better get back to let show. Hi, oh, you better get back in there soon. So we have a lot of Berkshire senators. You have a lot of other people lot of pressure. They say the Chevy Cruz is not selling. Well, I say, well, then get somebody to get a car that is selling well and put it back in. But it's not that simple automotive news predicts that in two thousand eighteen US car sales could fall below seventeen million vehicles for the first time in four years General Motors referred to the layoffs and closures as a restructuring. So where does that leave the American auto industry? I'm putting that.
GM Cuts Thousands of Jobs, Amid Weak Sedan Sales
"The US has biggest automaker has announced massive cutbacks in North America. General Motors says it intends to cut up to fourteen thousand eight hundred jobs and production at several North American factories GM like other car makers is trying to adjust to weeks sedan sales. And in fact, in one of its moves that'll stop making the Chevy Cruz as it idols. It's plant in Lordstown, Ohio. The cutbacks also affect plants in Michigan and Canada and would reduce GM's annual costs by four and a half billion dollars.

"So much. Oh boy. Some bad news coming out of General Motors. They are slashing fifteen percent of their North American salaried workers and their discontinuing several vehicle models. So so this is not necessarily the the rank and file this is not necessarily the people who, you know. I would assume that the people who put the cars together who work on the assembly line are probably hourly employees. Those are the ones who Representative by the union, whereas a salaried employees are probably more the people who wear the ties to work that would be my guess. All right. So here they're halting production at their facilities in Lordstown, Ohio Hamtramck, Michigan in Oshawa Shawa, Ontario plants in white Marsh, Maryland and Warren Michigan are going to be unallocated. So in addition there they're closed. They are they announced a ready that they're closing an assembly plant in gun, son and Korea, they're going to cease the operation of two additional plants outside North America by the end of twenty nine thousand nine they're trying to cut costs and capital expenditures. According to the CEO, Mary Barra. She said actions are being taken to reduced salary to reduce salaried and salaried contract. Staff by fifteen percent, which includes twenty-five percent fewer executives to streamline decision-making. Right. So they are cutting the guys who wear the ties. So I don't think there's as much of an outcry. Now, if this had happened under Obama, I don't think there would be as much of an outcry because you know, they're they're cutting the guys ties the guys at the top they're making too much money anyway. And so so we need to keep the workers alive. And this is a good thing. Look, President Obama cutting because of this, you know, the the rank and file that were still protected while. Yes, they would be happy to see executives go. They'd says I'm seeing eighty one hundred white collar workers are among or among the group here being cut with fourteen thousand seven hundred total. Yep. Well. Yeah. Fourteen thousand jobs now, President Trump spoke with with that CEO, Mary Barra after the company announced these plans, and he said, he's not happy. He came out and said, I was very tough with her. I was very tough. I spoke with her when I when I heard they were closing. And I said, you know, this country has done a lot for General Motors. And he he said you better get back in there soon. He said he's putting a lot of pressure on GM to come up with alternatives to the cars that aren't selling. Well, is that they say the Sherry Chevy Cruz is not selling. Well, I say, well, then get a car that is selling well and put it back in. And this is the the president's that type of guy to say he doesn't work in cars, but to come out and say, okay, if you have a product that's not selling, well, you don't double down on it. You come up with something that is selling. Well, find out what is selling. Well, and you bring that back. They have they're going to step up, the the self driving the autonomous vehicles and electric vehicles. That's what they're going to do. That's their plan for the future. Yeah. They're they're focusing on electronic and autonomous vehicles. They've been cutting jobs to deal with their plunging car sales in North America. They've been trying to figure out how to address the shrinking car demand. Apparently, we're not buying many vehicles as we used to. They didn't get enough. Volunteers to accept by says, they hoped about eighteen thousand of their fifty thousand salaried employees in North America. Eligible for buyouts only about eighteen thousand of the fifty thousand said, okay, I'll tell I'm close enough shoot. I'll take the compensation package, and I'll go, and I'll get a gig somewhere else to rise, you know, five ten years, and I'll be so they're moving into electric and autonomous vehicles. But they just killed the Chevy volt than one of the cars that they're losing is the vault because the vault was like a tremendous disaster. Relative to say, the Prius and like other versions other hybrids that totally beat its pants off. Right. Yes. The Chevy volt did not do. Well. I don't know why it didn't do well, especially when president. Obama such a big fan. GM's Hamtramck,.
