Bloomberg reports Elon Musk’s SpaceX is in discussions to raise another $1 billion in investment at a price of $270 per share.

The round would value the company at about $44 billion, before taking into account the new capital, they said.

At a roughly $44 billion valuation, SpaceX would rank as one of the most valuable venture-backed companies in the U.S.

In a research report dated July 20, Morgan Stanley said the company ultimately could be worth as much as $175 billion. The bank said it remains “focused on the needs and sources of capital for SpaceX as a potential catalyst to increase the relevance of space for public investors.”
