“We made a material gain in Rivian Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ:RIVN) as a result of its IPO. We met RIVN’s sponsors in 2018 as part of our continued work on electric vehicles, and were favorably impressed by their technology and discipline. In mid-2020, we made a small investment at a $10 billion valuation. In November, Rivian Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ:RIVN) went public at a $70 billion valuation and traded to a peak valuation of $162 billion. We hedged in the options market to lock in a minimum valuation of about $120 billion for a good chunk of our position.
