ALERTS FOR POTENTIAL SPACEX IPO
Rumoured SpaceX IPO - register for updates
SpaceX shares could start trading on the US stock market via an initial public offering (IPO) in the future
Founded in 2002, SpaceX is part of the companies controlled by Elon Musk. It provides satellites, spacecraft and space launchers as its primary focus. It was the first private company to both orbit a spacecraft and send a spacecraft to the International Space Station. Its Starlink satellite program has provided internet to nations worldwide and plans to launch more satellites into orbit with approval from the US authorities.
Stinging from previous discussions about public and private shares on Twitter, CEO Elon Musk has been coy with details. However, analysts predict that SpaceX or Starlink itself could have an IPO in the future.

Our IPO alerts service is for people who understand the risks of investing in equities, it is not personal advice. You should only consider investing if you’re free from significant debt (other than a mortgage) and have sufficient savings in an easily accessible account to cover for emergencies.
Investing in IPOs and individual companies isn’t right for everyone. It’s a higher-risk way to invest your money. When a company first lists on the stock market its share price can rise and fall quickly. The value of your investment depends on the fate of that company. If it fails, you risk losing your whole investment. Investors should make sure they understand the companies they’re investing in, the company specific risks, and make sure any businesses they own are held as part of a diversified portfolio. All investments and any income they produce will rise and fall in value, so you could make a loss. If you’re not sure of an investment's suitability for your circumstances, please speak to a financial adviser.
