July 26 (Reuters) - Shares of Lucid Group Inc rose
as much as 8.6% in their Nasdaq debut on Monday after the
electric vehicle maker completed its merger with a blank-check
company backed by Wall Street dealmaker Michael Klein.
The luxury electric vehicle maker, formerly known as Lucid
Motors and run by ex-Tesla engineer, had agreed to go public in
February through a merger with Churchill Capital Corp IV.
The merger gave the combined company a pro-forma equity
value of $24 billion.
