Sources say SpaceX plans to raise about $ 1 billion in investment to launch Starlink and other projects.
At the moment, negotiations are underway on the possible sale of the company’s shares at a price of $ 270 per share, but the conditions may change and the implementation of this idea will take at least two months. Analysts estimate SpaceX today at $ 44 billion.
In the previous round of financing in March, the company raised $ 500 million, at that time (in March 2020) the company was estimated at $ 36 billion.
Since its inception, SpaceX has raised $ 3.5 billion, and its investors are Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, Google, investment company Baillie Gifford, and many others.
