(Reuters) – Swedish electric car maker Polestar is nearing a deal to go public through a merger with blank-check firm Gores Guggenheim Inc at a valuation of $20 billion including debt, according to people familiar with the matter.
The premium EV maker, owned by China’s Geely and Volvo Cars, could announce its plan to go public as soon as Monday, the people said.
