Invest in SpaceX
SpaceX is a pioneer of the space industry. The company designs, manufactures and launches the most up-to-date rockets and spacecrafts.
The company was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk to revolutionize space transportation by offering and promoting the use of reusable rockets with the ultimate goal of making life multiplanetary.
SpaceX also aspires to become the leading and first satellite service provider delivering high-speed Internet to users from all around the world. As of October 2021 SpaceX has launched 1,740 Starlink satellites. The network has more than 100,000 users in 14 countries who are participating in a public beta, with service priced at $99 a month.
In May 2020, SpaceX and NASA launched two astronauts into orbit, marking the first human launch into space from U.S. soil in 10 years and a new partnership between SpaceX and the government.
Moon Markets Analysis report forecasts 140 Moon Missions launching over the next decade to generate $42.3 billion. In April 2021, NASA announced that SpaceX alone had won the contract to build the agency's next moon lander for its Artemis Moon program.
SpaceX is developing a Starship – a massive, next-generation rocket to launch cargo and people on missions to the Moon and Mars. In May 2021, Starship prototype called SN15 aced a high-altitude test flight from South Texas. Reaching orbit is the next step in testing the rocket, with SpaceX awaiting regulatory approval for its next launch.
In September 2021 SpaceX successfully undertook the Inspiration4 mission sending billionaire Jared Isaacman and three other civilians on a three-day trip to Earth orbit aboard a Crew Dragon capsule. It was the first time when the Crew Dragon, which was initially developed to carry professional astronauts to and from the International Space Station, was ever used for an entirely private mission. The company is working on further development of space tourism, including five already contracted missions to fly in the months and years to come.
In some business segments SpaceX may be faced with intense competition. Its Starlink satellite network program competes with Amazon who’s planning to launch its Kuiper network with more than 3,000 satellites; though it hasn’t yet revealed its production plans or launched any satellites yet.
Since August 2021, recent Starlink satellite launches have been slowed due to a liquid oxygen shortage induced by higher medical needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
NASA selection of SpaceX to design a human lunar lander for its Artemis program caused protests and a lawsuit from competitor companies. As a result, the work has been suspended and, according to media reports, the conflict will be settled if the U.S. Senate directs NASA to select a second company to participate in this program.
SpaceX does not disclose any financial information, but claims that it will generate as much as $36 billion in sales by 2025.
During the funding round in February 2021 the company raised nearly $1.2 billion at $74 billion valuation. In October 2021 SpaceX held a secondary sale of existing shares at the valuation of $100.3 billion. It made it the second most valuable private company in the world (behind only China's Bytedance).
As of November 2021 SpaceX has raised a total of $7.4 billion from 56 investors including United States Space Force, NASA, Raison Asset Management, Baillie Gifford, Bank of America, Fidelity, Google, Founders Fund and others.
United Traders analysts are in continuous search for OTC offers studying financial reporting, companies’ businesses, their future plans, analyzing them as potential acquisition targets or estimating prospective multifold capitalization increase as well as considering risks that may hinder business growth. The best ideas are offered to our investors.
As part of our service for purchasing shares on the over-the-counter market (pre-IPO, OTC), for its traders and investors United Traders buys units in funds that own equity stakes in private companies. These funds make early-stage investments in private companies or acquire equity stakes from employees of such companies.
United Traders will have shares at its disposal after the IPO. The shares can be sold after the established 6-month Lock-up period. Alternatively, the shares can be hedged for the above period. Prior to the company going public United Traders look for exit options in the OTC market. If we find a great offer, we sell the shares.
After the Lock-up period is over, the investment in pre-IPO or OTC will be automatically closed, and generated profits are credited to your account less the applicable UT fees. We offer an opportunity for investors with over $100,000 invested in a specific idea to search for a counterpart in the OTC market individually and to take profits before the company goes public and thereby exiting the trade prior to the Lock-up period expiration.
Although it is prohibited to sell shares within the Lock-Up period, our traders find ways to take profits for our investors using various financial instruments: forwards, options, short selling trades, etc.
For an investor the above means that the pre-IPO or OTC investment may be exited after paying a part of its value, usually around 15% which is caused by highly-priced instruments used to close the position. To do so, you should press the respective button in your members area as soon as it becomes active.
The exiting process is similar to making a new investment. You submit a request, we execute it within 1 business day, and your investment is closed at the current exchange price.
3.5% of the share purchase amount. The fee is charged at confirmation of your investment bid.
0.5% of the share sell amount after the trade. The fee is charged at the investment exit.
20% of the profit gain. The fee is charged only if the trade is profitable at the time of exiting.
EARLY EXIT FEE
Usually a 15% fee is charged subject to the actual situation at the exchange. The fee is calculated individually for each investment.
WE ARE A RELIABLE PARTNER
Our risk managers will support you throughout the entire transaction life.
Venture investing is very risky as they involve new or growing companies, and multifold increase in capitalization is expected. We prioritize companies at the pre-IPO stage as they already demonstrate strong financial indicators and plan to go public soon. This approach allows limiting hyper-risks related to insolvency of new companies and substantially increasing profits as compared to investors who buy shares through a subscription just before the IPO.
LOW ENTRY THRESHOLD
To buy the OTC stocks, one would need millions of dollars. We gathered a pool of traders and investors allowing everyone interested to join similar transactions with as much as $10.
United Traders is experienced in minimizing risks but a future investor should be aware of all risk types:
- Illiquidity. There is a possibility that early exit from this investment will take more than 1 month.
- Asymmetric information. Management and current investors have access to more internal information about the company than other market participants.
- Time uncertainty. There is no information regarding next financing round or exit strategy timeframe (IPO or M&A).
- Share dilution. The issue of additional shares by a company may reduce the value of shares of existing investors.
