According to people familiar with the matter, SpaceX is about to complete a new round of $2 billion in financing, which it has previously expanded due to strong demand.
SpaceX had been discussing raising $1 billion at $270 a share. Excluding the new money, SpaceX is valued at about $44 billion at that price.
according to pitchbook, the $2 billion over subscription financing round will be the largest financing in the history of SpaceX, just as SpaceX has just completed its most remarkable task. This month, SpaceX’s manned dragon spacecraft returned to earth safely. This is also the first time since the termination of the space shuttle program in 2011 that U.S. astronauts have traveled to the international space station on a U.S. spacecraft.
NASA has always been an important partner and customer of SpaceX. NASA said recently that it may carry out its first complete space mission with SpaceX on October 23.
