Gone already SPAC route so that's the opportunity all retailer. If they gone IPO route, maybe could of done same as Rivian.I am still an early reservation holder for a Rivian R1S. Today Rivian announced a "directed share" program by which eligible reservation holders will be able to purchase IPO shares from a pool of shares set aside for early Rivian customers. There is no information yet on what the share pricing or lot size limits will be.
I had hoped Lucid would offer a similar "friends and family" share set-aside at the time it went public as a nod to early reservation holders who have supported the company over the past couple of years but, of course, it never did.
I don't know yet whether I'll add Rivian to my investments in Tesla and Lucid, but it was a nice gesture from Rivian, nonetheless.
