TinyGemsBreaks – Mullen Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) Announces FTZ Filing as ‘Strategic Initiative’

Company: Mullen Automotive Inc. (MULN)
Category: News

Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ: MULN), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, has filed for Foreign Trade Zone (“FTZ”) status with the U.S. Department of Commerce; the company is filing for the status at its commercial vehicle manufacturing and assembly center in Tunica, Mississippi. According to the announcement, the company anticipates that FTZ status would provide key benefits, including the opportunity for improving company cash flow through reduction of taxes, fees and deferment of import duties. Specifically, Mullen projects that deferred working capital on domestic sales could result in deferred capital outlays of $10 million for the remainder of fiscal year 2024. A Foreign-Trade Zone is a secure area within the United States where foreign and domestic merchandise is generally considered to be in international commerce and outside of U.S. customs territory for duty and tariff purposes. “Achieving FTZ approval status is an important strategic initiative to further strengthen Mullen’s supply-chain management and deliver significant cash-flow savings,” said Mullen Automotive CEO and chair David Michery in the press release. “As we continue to expand our distribution internationally, the FTZ would provide a competitive advantage with no duties or tariffs paid on sales outside of the U.S.”
