Who Owns Redwood Materials?

There are currently 13 investors in Redwood Materials, primarily venture capital firms and investment funds. Additionally, Goldman Sachs, Fidelity, and Amazon are on its list of backers.

But one company, which led the corporate funding round, is especially notable – Ford Motor Company.

The leader of an investment round is the first one to commit funding to that round. They set the terms for other investors that participate. This suggests that Ford believes in the company and that it invested a significant amount of capital.

Ford’s electric vehicle sales rose 197% YoY in 2022, making them the second largest EV manufacturer behind Tesla. It makes sense that they’re interested in battery production.

Instead of starting their own battery company from scratch, why not buy from and invest in one of the leaders?

Is Ford Publicly Traded?

Yes, Ford is a public company with a market cap of almost $60 billion. It trades on the NYSE under the ticker F (NYSE: F).

It’s a component of the S&P 500, the Russell 1000 Index, and other major ETFs.

Buying Ford stock is the most direct method for investing in the future of Redwood Materials. Ford is a major buyer of and investor in Redwood Materials, which means it has significant exposure to the company’s upside.
