QS geben sich in ihrer Anwort nicht mal Mühe. Widerlegt wird kein einziger Kritikpunkt:

Klar, zuviel Aufmerksamkeit könnte die Kurse noch weiter unter Druck bringen:

Noch 2 Dinge halte ich an dieser Stelle für erwähnenswert:

1/
CEO Jagdeep Singh hat offenbar anders als Elon Musk den Fehler gemacht, nicht großflächig auf NDA's (Non-disclosure agreements) zu setzen.

Denn die Aussagen von (anonymisierten) Ex-Employees (9x und auch noch zusätzlich VW-Angestellte) sind eine wichtige Quelle (aber nicht alleinige) für diesen Shortreport.

Hier unterscheidet sich dieser mMn von anderen in letzter Zeit, die diesen Zugriff so nicht hatten.

Und daher ist sich mMn Scorpion Capital auch seiner Sache so sicher:

A Pump and Dump SPAC Scam By Silicon Valley Celebrities, That Makes Theranos Look Like Amateurs.



2/
ansonsten muss ich sagen:

• ein für mich an dieser Stelle und zu diesem Zeitpunkt sehr guter Shortreport, auch wenn er sehr lang ist (die Hälfte hätte auch gereicht mMn)

Deswegen erinnert er mich an den damaligen Report von Elliott / Paul Singer über Alcoa und den deutschen Groß-Angeber und Kapitalvernichter Dr. Klaus Kleinfeld (336 PDF-Seiten! Kosten: >> USD1M).

Der Rest ist bekanntlich Geschichte.

=> ich bin nun alle 188 Seiten durchgegangen und das Beste was man hier sagen kann wäre mMn, daß Quantumscape aus einer Mücke im Labor einen kommerziell nutzbaren Elefanten gemacht hat, der quasi in wenigen Jahren vor der Tür stehen kann/soll

Man hat mMn genau so viel für ein nicht informiertes Publikum (oder Schlitzohren wie VC Vinod Khosla) vorzuweisen, daß man damit schöne Powerpoint-Folien füllen kann.

Der "Trick" an der Sache ist nun, daß man in der FORM 10-K (und woanders) auf die Risiken hinweist, so daß später niemand sagen kann/soll, er sei betrogen worden. Zum Beispiel dieser Risikofaktor, der offensichtlich substanziell ist (neben einigen anderen):

Continued improvement in the solid-state separator.

We are working to improve the reliability and performance of our solid-state separator, including decreasing the thickness. We have selected a method of continuous processing found at scale in both the battery and ceramic industries and are working on continuous improvement of this process. In addition, we are investigating alternative processing methods that may further increase the capital efficiency of the process.


Die Idee mit dieser Check-Liste https://www.cell.com/pb-assets/journals/research/joule/Check… finde ich gut.

Anhand dieser kann jeder selbst mal nachprüfen, was an den Behauptungen von Quantumscape dran ist.

Hat offenbar auch Bill Gates nicht gemacht :D

Die freien Aktionäre haben hier nichts zu melden (Class A, "QS" an der NYSE); nur die Class B-Insider (*).

Ich suchte eigentlich eine Übersicht im AR2020 über die Shareholder structure, doch kann nichts finden. Da ist ja selbst Virgin Galactic Holdings noch besser in der Außendarstellung:

Holders

As of February 16, 2021, there were 86 holders of record of our shares of Class A Common Stock and 40 holders of record of our shares of Class B Common Stock. The actual number of stockholders of our Common Stock is greater than this number of record holders and includes stockholders who are beneficial owners but whose shares of common stock are held in street name by banks, brokers and other nominees. There were 20 holders of record of approximately 18,149,989 warrants, each exercisable for one share of Class A Common Stock at a price of $11.50 per share.
(FC: Format)

(*) siehe auch:

Dual-class stock.

As described above, the Class B Common Stock has 10 votes per share, while the Class A Common Stock, which is the only class of capital stock that is publicly traded, has 1 vote per share. As a result of this dual class structure, Legacy QuantumScape’s co-founders and certain QuantumScape’s investors, which include certain QuantumScape’s executive officers, employees, directors, and/or their affiliates, will have significant influence over matters requiring stockholder approval, including the election of directors and significant corporate transactions, such as a merger or other sale of QuantumScape or its assets.


Zu Volkswagen heißt es u.a.:

As of December 31, 2020, Volkswagen beneficially owns approximately 26% of the Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (our “Class A Common Stock”) and 12% of Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (our “Class B Common Stock,” and together with our Class A Common Stock, our “Common Stock”) outstanding, representing 13% of the vote, and our executive officers, directors and their affiliates as a group beneficially own approximately 40% of Class A Common Stock and 62% Class B Common Stock outstanding, representing 59% of the vote.
....


=> also ~13% Volkswagen zu ~59% Insider (nach Voting rights)

=> so gesehen hat auch Volkswagen hier nicht viel zu melden (zum 31.12.2020)
