Fisker (NYSE: FSR) Stock Tumbles as Production Pause Looms Despite Funding Win

Fisker (NYSE: FSR) stock plummeted over 15% on Monday after the company secured $150 million in financing and announced a six-week production pause.

Fisker (FSR) has revealed a significant boost in its financial backing as an existing investor commits to providing up to $150 million in gross proceeds. This financing, originating from the holder of its 2025-dated convertible notes, will be structured in four tranches, contingent upon specific conditions, including the submission of Fisker’s 2023 Form 10-K.

At the same time, Fisker has decided to halt production for six weeks starting March 18. This temporary pause will enable the company to balance inventory and advance its strategic and financing initiatives.

Moreover, the electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer has disclosed ongoing discussions with a major automotive player regarding a prospective collaboration. This potential deal encompasses various facets, including investment in Fisker, collaborative development of EV platforms, and manufacturing in North America. However, the realization of any agreement hinges on completing due diligence, negotiations, and signing definitive agreements.

Earlier this month, Fisker announced its intention to procure extra funds due to the inadequacy of its current resources to meet its financial obligations over the next 12 months. The company also cautioned that “there is substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.”
