Peloton is replacing its CEO and cutting roughly 20% of its corporate workforce as it hopes to win back investors’ confidence and reset its business for growth coming out of the pandemic.

The announced changes come days after reports circulated that Peloton could soon be a takeover target. Shares surged on hopes of a deal to be struck with a tech giant or athletic apparel behemoth. But news of a management shakeup and strategic overhaul make this path seem much less likely, at least in the near term.

The connected fitness company announced Tuesday it plans to replace CEO John Foley and cut 2,800 jobs, or about 20% of corporate positions.

Barry McCarthy, the former chief financial officer of Spotify and Netflix, will become CEO and president and join Peloton’s board. McCarthy currently serves on the board of delivery start-up Instacart.

Peloton shares were recently up around 2% in premarket trading, having closed Monday up nearly 21%. As of Monday, the stock is down about 31% year to date, giving Peloton a market value of $9.7 billion. CNBC

    • Hi @greenscorpio1000 Unfortunately we do not have this feature on the mobile app. You can only access the Swap rates on the web platform. The screenshot attached is an indication of todays rate (now at -2.67) which will be a charge on the account. Please note that open positions held through 10pm (UK time) on Fridays will be adjusted for three days’ worth of funding to cover the weekend. All the best, O.D
    • Recent commentary from a number of high-profile Federal Reserve members indicates their willingness to keep up the pressure on fighting inflation.   The incoming consumer price inflation (CPI) data on Thursday will be key and may surprise on the upside as has been the case for much of this year. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at EUR/USD.          
    • Market data to trade the week starting 10 October: US earnings; US CPI For equity traders it’s the start of another period of intense activity as third quarter earnings begin to be released.
