Faraday Future Intelligent Electric Inc.’s (the “Company”) board of directors, along with its advisors, continues to pursue financing alternatives with multiple parties to support the production of its FF 91. Unfortunately, efforts to raise capital have been impacted by a misinformation campaign of completely baseless allegations that certain directors are conspiring to pursue an unnecessary bankruptcy for their own personal gain. The Company hired an independent law firm to conduct a thorough independent external investigation with respect to these allegations. The independent investigation, led by a former prosecutor, found that these false allegations were without merit.
These unfounded allegations have nevertheless continued against certain of the Company’s officers and directors. Threats that began with lawsuits have escalated to threats of physical violence and even death threats. Faraday takes these threats seriously and is referring them to the appropriate law enforcement authorities, including state and local police, the FBI, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Department of Justice and international authorities. The Company will cooperate with law enforcement in investigating and support any prosecution of any person found to be involved in any threat or act of violence to the fullest extent of the law.
The Company takes threats against its directors, officers and employees seriously and will undertake all efforts to protect such parties from any and all such inappropriate, uninformed, and unacceptable conduct. Any party involved in making or encouraging such threats will be brought to justice.
