Why GGPI Stock Is Down 25% in 2022 Ahead of Polestar SPAC Merger Vote


  • Gores Guggenheim (GGPI) stock is slipping ahead of a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) merger vote next week.

Gores Guggenheim (NASDAQ:GGPI) stock is falling on Thursday as investors prepare for its special purpose acquisition company merger vote.

That SPAC merger vote is set to take place on June 22, which is next week. The company is reminding investors to vote on the deal that would combine GGPI with Swedish EV company Polestar.

Unfortunately for GGPI stock shareholders, the last several months have been rough, with shares down about 25% since the start of the year. It doesn’t look like things are getting any better, either.

First off, the SEC is currently cracking down on SPAC mergers. That includes introducing new regulations that would require similar disclosures to that of an initial public offering (IPO).

New sales estimates for EVs from Jefferies have also come to light. Analysts at the firm dropped EV sales estimates to 8.7 million in 2022 and 11.5 million in 2023. The prior estimates were for 9 million and 11.8 million, respectively.

These lower sales estimates have several stocks in the space slipping today. GGPI stock isn’t immune to that either, as it’s planning to merge with an EV company.

All of this has GGPI stock seeing heavy trading. As of this writing, more than 5 million shares of the stock have changed hands. That’s above its daily average trading volume of roughly 3 million shares.

GGPI stock is down 10% as of Thursday afternoon.
