Tesla CEO Elon Musk Is Now The Richest Man In The World With $230bn

Elon Musk’s net worth has surpassed $230 billion, making him the richest man on the planet after shares at SpaceX soared by 33 percent.

After only joining the Forbes top ten billionaire list in the middle of last year, the Tesla CEO has now outstripped former richest person, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and is currently wealthier than Bill Gates and Warren Buffett combined.

The Tesla founder saw his and his SpaceX company’s wealth swell after a share sale at SpaceX on October 8 worth $100 billion in a secondary offering.

The company had an agreement with both new and existing investors to sell up to $755 million in SpaceX stock from insiders at $560 per share, multiple people close to the deal told CNBC.

The 33 percent increase in its new share price brings the company’s valuation to $100.3 billion, after initially offering the deal to investors in February, when SpaceX’s valuation stood at $74 billion at 419.19 a share.

The first round of offerings raised nearly $1.2 billion, the outlet reports.

The company’s new increased valuation places it in the rare company of a private ‘centicorn’ or ‘hectocorn,’ which are companies with a valuation of $100 billion.

    1. Bernard Arnault is French, Mukesh Ambani is Indian.

  2. The day a Nigerian will enter that list,
    He will demand for worship from everybody.

  3. Some Nigerian poli-thieves have stolen more than that Even Forbes is confused about that one. 😏😏😏😏😏😏
    When Nigerian president initially conceived the idea of debt forgiveness, the foreign creditors asked him if he wanted to be given
    the names of two Nigerians (politicians) whose loots can clear the debts.
    That was before the creation of EFCC and ICPC and bringing Okonjo on board
    to secure it.

    1. True. Forbes only count legit wealth. If they include illegal wealth our politicians will surely be on their list. That's why I laugh when Nig pastors keep preaching against these rich men, Gates and co. First of all, they never claimed to be Christians. Second of all their wealth is legit. The whole world is using Microsoft, Facebook, twitter, whatsapp.. why won't they be rich? They had an idea, developed it and made use of a capitalist economy to market it. Far better than stealing from your own people and going abroad to invest, and still rigging election to steal more.

  4. Hmmmmm🚢🚢🚢🚢🚢
