Lion Electric Company, an all-electric medium and heavy-duty vehicles maker, and blank check firm Northern Genesis Acquisition Corp completed their reverse merger proceedings on Friday, May 7. The joint entity’s common shares have begun trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and  the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the new tickers, ‘TSX:LEV’ and ‘NYSE:LEV’, respectively.

The merged company has also listed its warrants for trading under tickers ‘NYSE:LEV.WS’ and ‘TSX:LEV.WT’.

Lion Electric’s reverse merger with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC)  Northern Genesis recorded proceeds of US$ 490 million. Lion Electric spent US$ 90 million of the net gross payment for repayment of its outstanding loans and debts.

The company plans to allocate the remaining US$ 400 billion to expand the EV company’s operations. This also involves the development of its manufacturing sites in Québec and the US.

The company is set to receive an investment of US$ 70 million from the government in Illinois over the next three years, where it plans to generate 45 clean energy-related jobs. The facility will also be efficient enough to manufacture approximately 20,000 electric trucks and buses annually once the facility begins its operations.
