% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Rivian (NASDAQ: RIVN) has priced its initial public offering at $78 per share, valuing the company at $77 billion on a fully-diluted basis.

Rivian aimed for a valuation above $65 billion in its IPO, with shares priced between $72 and $74 per share. With its IPO, Rivian’s $77 billion market cap is 95% of Ford’s–as of this writing–which stands at $80.40 billion. RIVN makes up 90% of GM’s market cap, which is at $85.11 billion as of Tuesday’s close.

The electric truck maker was looking at a possible $10 billion capital raise with a valuation of around $70 billion. With shares priced at $78, Rivian raised about $12 billion in the offering, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing individuals familiar with the matter.

In July, Rivian closed a funding round after raising $2.5 billion. According to the company, it has raised $10.5 billion in funding since 2019. The funds will likely electrify Rivian’s growth in the coming years.

“As we near the start of vehicle production, it’s vital that we keep looking forward and pushing through to Rivian’s next phase of growth,” said Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe after the funding round in July. “This infusion of funds from trusted partners allows Rivian to scale new vehicle programs, expand our domestic facility footprint, and fuel international product rollout.”

Over the summer, there was talk of Rivian’s plans to build a second and third factory. The company confirmed that it is exploring locations for a second manufacturing facility in the United States. Several US states have bid for the plant, dubbed “Project Terra.”

Rivian’s ventures into Europe were also discussed back in July. The company was reportedly looking into a third assembly plant in the United Kingdom. Rivian has allegedly talked with some ministers in the region about a UK-based facility.

Back in Normal, Illinois, Rivian is still expanding its first manufacturing facility. The company’s plans to expand the Normal factory and add a charging canopy were already approved by the Town Council. The company also purchased 38- acres of land across Rivian Motorway, hinting at plans for future expansion in Normal.

Rivian has started its journey in the electric vehicle market with caution but has made steady progress, especially in 2021. Currently, it has 55,400 preorders for the Rivian R1T and R1S vehicles, along with 100,000 orders for its electric delivery van for Amazon. It is working steadily to increase production, prioritizing the Amazon delivery van in the near future.
