OREANDA-NEWS The American space corporation SpaceX offered investors shares at a price of $ 112 apiece, which raises its valuation from $ 180 billion ($95 per share), as it was back in December last year, to 210 billion. This is reported by Bloomberg with reference to its own sources.

They cite significant demand from investors as the reason for such a sharp increase in the value of securities. The valuation of 210 billion is a record for an American private company (unlike a public one, its shares cannot be bought on the stock exchange), although it is still lower than that of the TikTok-owned company ByteDance Ltd ($268 billion).

The tender has not been completed yet, so the share price may change depending on the behavior of investors. In the current assessment, SpaceX has already equaled a number of the world's largest companies.

Such a revaluation allowed the company's owner, Elon Musk, to return to first place in the list of the richest people on the planet in the Bloomberg ranking with a result of $ 216 billion, slightly ahead of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

Earlier it was reported that the shareholders of the American automaker Tesla voted to pay the CEO of the company, Elon Musk, a compensation package of $ 56 billion. Prior to that, the Delaware court annulled the shareholders' decision to pay bonuses to Musk, considering them unfairly overstated.
