Harley Surges on SPAC Deal to List Electric-Motorcycle Unit

Harley-Davidson Inc. (NYSE:HOG) jumped the most in 13 months after the company said it would list its electric-motorcycle unit publicly through a merger with a blank-check company, capping off a busy year for reverse mergers in the electric-vehicle industry.

Harley rose 15% to $42.43 at 9:38 a.m. in New York after climbing as much as 18%, the most intraday since late October 2020.

The LiveWire division will merge with AEA-Bridges Impact Corp. (NYSE:IMPX), a SPAC that focuses on sustainability, and is expected to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “LVW,” the companies said in a statement Monday.

The deal between Blessing’s SPAC, called EFIC1, values Azerion at about 1.3 billion euros ($1.5 billion), the two companies said in a statement Monday that confirms an earlier Bloomberg report. The company will rename as Azerion Group NV and start trading on the Amsterdam stock exchange in February.
