Ford Sells Shares in EV Maker Rivian for $214 Million

Ford Motor Co. sold eight million shares of electric-car maker Rivian Automotive Inc. for $214 million, or $26.80 apiece, the U.S. automaker said in a filing on Tuesday.
Ford now holds nearly 94 million shares, or a 10.5 percent stake, and is still the fourth-largest shareholder in the Irvine, California-based company, according to Refinitiv data.
Rivian is struggling in a competitive market, including competition from Ford’s F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck, while a supply chain crisis is limiting production at its plants.
The electric-car maker earlier slashed its planned 2022 production in half to 25,000 vehicles.
T.Rowe Price Associates is the largest shareholder in the electric car maker with an 18.2 percent stake, followed by Amazon.com Inc’s 17.7 percent stake.
