In February this year it was reported Rivian was seeking to go public with an IPO valuation of more than $50 billion. Now just three months later than number has grown by 40%.
Bloomberg is now reporting Rivian could target a valuation of about $70 billion for its potential public listing later this year.
According to sources familiar with the matter, Rivian is working with Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase & CO, and Morgan Stanley on the IPO.
Rivian announced this week it has delayed deliveries of their first vehicle, the R1T electric pickup truck. Originally slated for a June release, deliveries of the Launch Edition R1T will now begin in July, and should be completed by spring 2022.
