Electric Truck startup goes bankrupt…

Sharing is Caring!

The Troy, Michigan-based company said in a statement late Sunday that its board and interim CEO, Shauna McIntyre, decided to liquidate through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy process. The decision comes after a review of Electric Last Mile’s products and plans turned up no better option for stockholders, creditors and other interested parties, it said.

Electric Last Mile’s stock plunged 56% to 22 cents a share at 9:49 a.m. in New York. It was down 93% so far this year, to 51 cents, as of the close of trading last week.

The filing will make Electric Last Mile the first of the EV startups that merged with special purpose acquisition companies to go out of business amid the recent market slump. On May 27, the company had warned it might run out of cash this month.

Founders James Taylor and Jason Luo had planned to import electric delivery vans from China and assemble them at a former General Motors Hummer factory in Mishawaka, Indiana. Both men resigned in early February after Electric Last Mile accused them of making improper stock purchases just before the company announced the SPAC merger in December 2020. The company listed on the Nasdaq in late June 2021 in a SPAC transaction that netted it about $379 million.
