(Reuters) – Ford Motor Co cut its stake in Rivian Automotive Inc to 1.15%, as part of a plan to downsize its holdings in the electric vehicle maker.

Ford, which has written off its investment in Rivian by $7.4 billion by 2022, said last week that monetization of its stake in Rivian was “nearly complete.” Ford holds an 11.4% stake in Rivian at the end of 2021.

Shares of Rivian fell 3.4% in afternoon trading. The stock underperformed in 2022, losing about 82% of its value as the company reeled from supply chain disruptions and missed its full-year production target of 25,000 units.

Reuters reported last week that Rivian is planning to lay off 6% of its staff amid a drop in cash reserves.

Ford’s updated stake in the company was revealed in a filing Wednesday.

Rivian declined to comment on the Ford share sale.
