It's over for Fisker... Not long after Henrik Fisker left Fisker Automotive, the company has announced it is reducing its workforce by 75 percent.
“Our efforts to secure a strategic alliance or partnership are continuing in earnest, but unfortunately we have reached a point where a significant reduction in our workforce has become necessary,” a company statement reads.
By the end of the day, Fisker expects to have retained about 25 percent of its workforce. Fifty-three senior managers and executives have stayed with Fisker, Reuters reports, mostly to help find buyers for the company’s assets. What happens next for Fisker Automotive is unclear, but the company is nearing a deadline to repay some of the U.S. Department of Energy’s $193 million loan.
