A Tesla Competitor Now Declares An Unexpected Bankruptcy

A Tesla competitor now declares an unexpected bankruptcy and begins the process of liquidation, sources report.

Arrival, which has a decade of history, has entered administration, the British version of a bankruptcy filing, reports TheStreet.

“In theory, the move only impacts the company’s assets in the United Kingdom, but that’s functionally the entire company.”

Instead of making just passenger cars, Arrival sought to build a large van, a bus, and a car that was being positioned for use by ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft.

The company’s XL Van, which looked like a more-cheaply-made version of the Mercedes Benz Sprinter, appeared to be its signature product, reports TheStreet.

However, the company had bold goals, according to its website.

“At Arrival, we are reinventing both the design and production of electric vehicles for end-to-end sustainability.

Only true innovation of both products and processes can deliver the radical impact we need to combat the worst effects of the climate crisis,” it shared.

That was a big goal for a company that never sold an actual vehicle.

And unfortunately for the company, which listed its stock on the Nasdaq, had recently been informed that it was being delisted.

“Simon Edel, Alan Hudson and Sam Woodward of EY-Parthenon’s Turnaround and Restructuring Strategy team were appointed as joint administrators (the ‘Administrators’) of Arrival UK Ltd and Arrival Automotive UK Limited (the ‘Companies’), both subsidiaries of Arrival,” the company shared in a press release.

It appears that the company’s 170 workers in the UK will lose their jobs.

“The Administrators are now exploring options for the sale of the business and assets of the Companies, including the electric vehicle platform, software, intellectual property and R&D assets, for the benefit of creditors,” the company continued.

A popular retailer now closes majority of its stores with at least 16 shuttering in just weeks due to a big dip in sales.

Chiefs at B2 Outlet Stores revealed sales have dipped, and the company has not seen a turnaround in fortunes, reports The-Sun.

B2 Outlet Stores sell a range of discounted items, ranging from children’s clothes to toys and furniture.

Now 16 outlets across the country have closed their doors since November 7, according to the NBC affiliate WOOD-TV.

Executives announced earlier this week that the B2 Outlets Store in Hastings, Michigan, has shuttered.

President Duane Smith and CEO Matt Smith said closing stores isn’t an easy decision.

Sales had declined but the retailer had looked for ways how to combat it.

“We have pivoted with various creative ways to drive foot traffic, yet a turnaround has not occurred,” they said in a statement shared on Facebook.

“Although closing stores is never an easy decision, B2 has reached that point where closing a small number of stores is imperative.”

The duo thanked its loyal shoppers for their custom.

Prices were cut by 50% as the store rushed to clear the last remaining stock.

The prices of kids’ clothes were cut to just $2 – days before the shutdown.

It comes just months after the discount retailer closed its store in Big Rapids.

Outlets in Canton, Rochester Hills, Kalamazoo, Lansing, and Muskegon, have also shut up shop.

B2 Outlet Stores is not the only chain that has seen store closures or announced upcoming shutdowns.

Walgreens has warned that 150 drugstores will close by the summer of 2024.

Meanwhile, two Walmart stores in San Diego County will be closing on February 9.
