The Fisker and Spartan Energy SPAC merger deal is still very undervalued. SPAQ stock could rise over 200% to $38.88 per share sometime after the merger closes based on other EV comps.

Know All the Risks and Rewards Before Going in on Spartan Energy Stock
Will Ashworth
August 28, 2020·4 mins read
It’s been over a month since the electric SUV startup announced that it was merging with Spartan Energy Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:SPAQ) in a deal valued at $2.9 billion. Fisker plans to build its business by doing the opposite of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). Investors ought to be asking themselves if that’s good or bad for SPAQ stock.

Here’s my take on both sides of the argument.

To help make my argument for and against Fisker’s outsourcing plan, I’ll lean heavily on Wards Auto contributor John McElroy, whose understanding of the automotive industry far exceeds mine.

InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

McElroy recently discussed the pros and cons of vertically integrating your automotive operations.

“Fisker, meanwhile, is taking his EV startup in a different direction. He’s outsourcing almost everything. This is going to save him an enormous amount of time and money because he doesn’t have to buy any manufacturing equipment or build any factories. Suppliers are going to do everything for him, including final assembly,” McElroy wrote on Aug. 21.

9 Gold Stocks to Buy That Still Have Room to Run

“All Fisker has to do is set the specs, do the design and control the customer experience. Everything else can be outsourced.”

A Closer Look at SPAQ Stock

As McElroy discusses, Elon Musk followed the Henry Ford playbook when building Tesla. While the company’s grown to become the world’s most valuable car manufacturer, it hasn’t come without a whole lot of hand-wringing and cash flow crunches.

It isn’t cheap building a car company virtually from scratch. Fisker should know. He’s already gone bankrupt once in November 2013 when Fisker Automotive entered Chapter 11 after failing to appeal to car buyers and car critics alike.

But not before burning through $1.4 billion in funds from public and private sources.

McElroy finished his article by arguing that if you want to be successful in the automotive industry, you’ve got to do something different. Utilizing outsourcing, Fisker is leaning on suppliers (Magna) and existing manufacturers (Volkswagen) to get the job done.

Time will tell if Fisker is up to the challenge. However, the asset-light business model should enable the company to stretch the more than $1 billion in funding it will have at its disposal as it gears up a production start of all-electric Fisker Ocean SUV in 2022.

For these reasons, the asset-light business model ought to be good for SPAQ stock.

Vertical Integration and SPAQ Stock

On the flip side, vertical integration means higher margins and greater control delivering the ultimate product. While McElroy makes a good case of why the big automotive suppliers know their products and industry inside and out, vertically integrating allows you to keep a tight lid on future development plans.

By keeping things in-house, not only do you maintain radio silence on your intellectual property, you keep a lid on supplier costs, quality control over the design and manufacture of the vehicle’s components while providing employees with an ongoing education improving the product and the process.

As McElroy explains, most automotive manufacturers, including Volkswagen, use a combination of vertical integration and outsourcing, keeping final assembly, powertrain production, and other vital pieces of the manufacturing puzzle in-house, while jobbing out everything else.

Ultimately, it’s going to be hard for Fisker to make money if it outsources 100% of the steps necessary to produce a mass-appeal vehicle. The margins won’t be good enough.

For this reason, outsourcing could be bad for SPAQ stock over the long haul.

The Bottom Line

Currently trading just under $14, SPAQ stock is 40% higher than its August 2018 IPO price.

Is Fisker’s anti-Tesla plan worth betting on? I honestly couldn’t tell you.

What I do know is that there are going to be more electric vehicle successes in the years ahead, which means the likelihood of success betting on the 2020 version of Fisker has far better odds than the 2013 version.

My InvestorPlace colleague, Mark Hake, made the case recently that SPAQ stock “could easily double or triple by 2023” should Fisker hit its estimated 2023 sales of $3.3 billion.

Based on its potential, I would say that if you’re a speculative investor, betting some of your fun money on the Fisker Ocean shouldn’t be an issue.

Spartan Energy Shows Promise, But It Isn’t a Buy Yet

Muslim Farooque
,InvestorPlace•September 2, 2020
Its been the year of the special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). Over 50 SPACs have been formed in 2020 alone, and they have raised over $21.5 billion. Spartan Energy Acquisition (NYSE:SPAQ) is one of the top SPACs in the market, as SPAQ stock has jumped 40% so far this year.

Source: Shutterstock

The company’s big news is that it is merging with an up-and-coming electric-vehicle company, Fisker. The equity valuation of the merger is expected to be an impressive $2.9 billion, with $1 billion in gross proceeds. More importantly, these proceeds will be used to finance the production of Fisker’s electric vehicle, the Ocean.

But since the deal was announced in mid-July, SPAQ stock is down slightly. Investors don’t seem to be too exuberant about Fisker so far. The skepticism is understandable, but Fisker’s positive catalysts could make investors more bullish on it in the future. However, Spartan Energy isn’t worth buying yet.

A Possible Comeback Story
Legendary car designer Henrik Fisker, the founder of Fisker, previously took a crack at the EV market. Specifically, he established Fisker Automotive, which went bankrupt within six years of its launch, back in 2007.

The company’s battery supplier, Wanxiang Group, purchased the majority of the company assets. Wanxiang later relaunched the company as Karma Automotive, while Fisker, who owned some rights to the brand, founded Fisker Inc.

10 Long-Term Stocks to Buy to Profit From Secular Trends
However, there are still questions as to how the company expects to stand out in today’s more advanced EV market. For starters, Fisker’s core focus is on designing EVs and marketing them, as it is looking to outsource its manufacturing.

It strives to make “premium affordable” EVs that offer an immersive experience for its customers. Its original plan was to outsource its manufacturing to Volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY), hoping to take advantage of the German firm’s supply chain and economies of scale. The deal, though, hasn’t been finalized yet.



But encouragingly for Fisker, the EV market is still growing at a healthy pace. Therefore, there is plenty of room for EV startups to make their mark while the market matures.

Henrik Fisker has designed some of the most iconic vehicles in recent decades. Moreover, he has an expert management team and robust financial resources.

The company will use the proceeds from its merger with Spartan Energy to launch its flagship Fisker Ocean by late 2022. According to the company, the Ocean is “a fully electric SUV with premium styling and features and has been designed to be the world’s most sustainable vehicle.” Its price tag of $37,500, is significantly lower than Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) compact SUV, which costs roughly $50,000.

The Risks
According to a famous saying, “the lesson is repeated until learned.” In Fisker’s case, it seems that it is learning from its previous debacle by outsourcing the production of its vehicles. It has been in talks to outsource its production to Volkswagen. Fisker hoped to use the core components of Volkswagen’s MED platform for the Ocean.

Fisker initially hoped to finalize an agreement with the German automaker by July 2020. But it seems that the talks have broken down.

Though Fisker hopes to approach Volkswagen again later this month, it appears that the company is considering other options. If Fisker had been able to outsource its production to Volkswagen, it would have gained access to Volkwagen’s unique supply chain. substantially lowering its costs.

Even if Fisker reaches an agreement with Fisker, its Ocean SUV won’t come out for another two years. SPAQ stock could easily drop during that time, and it will probably decline in the coming months.

The Bottom Line on SPAQ Stock
Fisker has a lot of positives, but they don’t outweigh its risks at this stage. It has an attractive business model, strong leadership, and a seasoned management team. However, it’s too early to say whether it can meet its targets.

The company’s failure to make a deal with Volkswagen is worrisome. Given these points, it’s best to avoid SPAQ stock for now.

On the date of publication, Muslim Farooque did not have (either directly or indirectly) any positions in the securities mentioned in this article.

Spartan Energy Fisker Is A Must-Own

REASONS TO BE BULLISH ON SPARTAN ENERGY FISKER

There are a number of reasons to be bullish on Spartan Energy Fisker. First, there are now over 7,000 reservations for the Fisker Ocean, scheduled for launch in 2020. In the same amount of time, Tesla only had 3,000 orders for its Model S when it launched.

Second, Henrik Fisker is an EV automotive pioneer. He is best known for designing luxury cars including the BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Fisker Karma, Galpin-Fisker Mustang Rocket, VLF Force 1 V10, VLF Destino V8, Fisker EMotion, Fisker Ocean, and Fisker Orbit. The Fisker Karma was the world’s first premium plug-in hybrid and received a handful of accolades, including the International Design Awards Product Design of the Year, Silver Edison Award, Automobile magazine’s Design of the Year Award, Top Gear Car of the Year, Fast Company’s Innovation By Design Award, and was named one of Time magazine’s 50 Best Inventions of 2011.

Third, this is a comeback story for Henrik Fisker. Fisker resigned as chairman from Fisker Automotive in March 2013, because of disagreements with management about business strategy. Later that year, the company declared voluntary bankruptcy. Assets of Fisker Automotive were sold at a bankruptcy auction in 2014 to Chinese automotive parts firm Wanxiang for $149.2 million. In September 2015, Fisker Automotive was renamed Karma Automotive. The Fisker Karma was renamed the Karma Revero in 2016. Henrik Fisker and Fisker Inc are not affiliated with Karma Automotive or its parent company Waxiang. However, the pain of what Henrik went through the first time is driving him to succeed with Spartan Energy Fisker.

Fourth, Spartan Energy Fisker just unveiled three new electric vehicles for 2025. Fisker shared an image of its previously announced Ocean SUV in front of three other models: a “super-sports sedan” which is based on the E-Motion concept, another crossover model, and a truck. The pickup is still covered in the latest image, but the company already showed photos of the Alaska pickup back in February.

Fifth, reports are that Spartan Energy Fisker will use VW’s MEB electric vehicle platform. Volkswagen supplies the battery pack, platform, and electric motors, and Fisker supplies the bodies. This is a win-win for both companies and lessens the risk of owning Spartan Energy Fisker.

Sixth, the key to making big money is getting in early. We weren’t the first, but we did recommend Tesla back in 2018. We also got our subscribers into NIO stock between $5 and $6, which you can read here. At current levels, Spartan Energy Fisker is incredibly cheap. The business combination valued Fisker at a $2.9 billion pro forma equity value, at the $10.00 per share PIPE price. Tesla has a current market cap of $294 billion, NIO $15 billion, and Nikola $12 billion.

Seventh, the company is partnering with Electrify America for access to its charging stations. Electrify America is investing $2 billion through 2027 to build out a nationwide electric charging network. This puts Fisker’s charging capabilities on par with Tesla.

Eighth, Fisker is partnering with Cox Automotive for local storage and maintenance services. Cox Automotive has 78 service locations in the U.S. and 108 global locations which will be authorized as full-service maintenance hubs for Spartan Energy Fisker.

WHY IS SPARTAN ENERGY FISKER MIS-PRICED?

The reason Spartan Energy Fisker is so cheap at the moment is that the merger has not closed yet. The two companies just agreed to extend the date by which Spartan has to complete a business combination for an additional six months, from August 14, 2020 to February 14, 2021. The Fisker Transaction is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2020. While this is disappointing in the short-term, there two key takeaways.

The deal will close
Investors get a few extra months to add cheap exposure.

BOTTOM LINE

Spartan Energy Fisker is an opportunity we don’t want investors to pass up. We saw what happened with Nikola after its merger with VectoIQ (VTIQ) was approved by shareholders. The stock went from $13 to $90 in less than two months. If we had to pick between owning Fisker or Nikola, we would take Fisker over Nikola any day of the week. Spartan Energy Fisker is Henrik Fisker’s comeback vehicle and we can’t wait to see what he does to the short-sellers. If the shorts think Elon Musk made them wet their pants, they haven’t seen what Henrik Fisker is going to do to them.
