What this Investigation is About: Rivian designs and manufactures electric vehicles – the R1T electric pickup truck and R1S electric SUV. Rivian began selling the R1T in September 2021 and planned to begin selling the R1S in December 2021. As of October 31, 2021, Rivian reported "approximately 55,400 R1T and R1S preorders in the United States and Canada from customers who paid a cancellable and fully refundable deposit of $1,000." At the time of its IPO, Rivian planned to produce approximately 1,200 R1Ts and 25 R1Ss by the end of 2021, with all preorders filled by the end of 2023.
Rivian completed its IPO on November 10, 2021, selling shares at $78.00 per share for total proceeds of $11.93 billion. However, unbeknownst to investors, the Registration Statement failed to disclose that Rivian underpriced the R1T and R1S to such a degree that the Company would have to raise prices shortly after the IPO. Subsequently, these price increases would tarnish Rivian's reputation as a trustworthy and transparent Company and would put a significant number of its backlog orders as well as future orders in jeopardy of cancellation. Accordingly, the price of the Company's shares was artificially inflated at the time of the IPO. As Rivian announced its plans to increase its prices, its shares took a hit. Rivian stock now trades near $38.00 per share, significantly below the Company's $78.00 IPO price.
