The electric vehicles company opened 6.0% down this morning following a Bloomberg report that it will raise up to $3.0 billion in new capital – responding to which Nio said in a statement:
Nio would like to clarify that the Company currently has no reportable capital raising activity, other than the recent convertible notes offering that was completed on September 25th, 2023.
Still, shares remain in the red today suggesting that investors are worried, nonetheless.
Why? Perhaps because Nio Inc is currently burning $250 million a quarter – a figure that Wall Street expects to still be at about $125 million by 2025.
