Why not give tours and show off the facility, instead of trying to confiscate photo equipment, smash windows and cut seatbelts with a knife to pull a journalist from a vehicle?
Read up on the agreement, before you make a stupid comment.
Panasonic provides the cells, they are not a partner in the gigafactory.
Pacific's will be a bit of a niche market, at least initially.
That's part of why they are forecast to lose money at
least next two years. Look at stock price history, it
will probably repeat, and be headed back down again.
Thats because the business plan is so severely flawed, if one will just put down the Koolaid and look.
1) Valuation assumes everything goes perfect until at least 2020.
2) Things are not going anywhere near perfect. Low oil prices, aging design, and increased competition at both the high end and low end of market including recent announcements by Mercedes, Audi and Porsche that they aim to compete directly.

This should happen quickly if management actually wants a deal. Otherwise, it will drag out and whatever deal is reached will be in large part meaningless.
Until you have a done deal, you wont hear much. I've been involved in negotiations, and it was frustrating how little you could tell the membership until it was ready for a vote.
