Elon Musk’s valuation of SpaceX has exceeded 100 100 billion since the sale of shares to existing investors announced this week, CNBC has learned.
SpaceX has a deal with new and existing investors to sell up to 75 755 million from stock insiders for 5 560, according to multiple people familiar with the deal – raising the company’s value to .3 100.3 billion. The company did not raise new capital at this time, sources said, adding that the purchase offer represents a second sale of existing shares.
The new shares represent the latest price of SpaceX from ড 1 billion to% 191 billion in February, when the company raised about ২ 1.2 billion. The company had a similar secondary transaction in February, at which time it had a sale agreement of up to $ 750 million for insiders.
SpaceX’s new valuation makes it one of the world’s rarest private “centicorn” or “hectocorn” companies – $ 1 billion unicorns, 100 times more. According to CB Insights, Musk’s SpaceX is now the world’s second most valuable private company, surpassing only China’s ByteDance and past fintech firm Stripe.
