Rivian is working with advisers including Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE:), JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:), and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:) on an initial public offering, Bloomberg news reported https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-05-28/electric-truck-maker-rivian-is-said-to-select-ipo-underwriters, citing people familiar with the matter.
The news outlet in February reported the company could seek a valuation of about $50 billion.
JPMorgan Chase declined to respond, while the two other banks and Rivian did not immediately reply to Reuters’ requests for comment.
