Assessment of space transportation investment opportunity

As the commercial utilisation of space garners increasing interest from investors worldwide, it comes as no surprise that space transportation has emerged as a captivating field. When a notable private equity fund expressed interest in investing in a well-established company specialising in cargo and human spaceflight activities, they sought our expertise to assess the associated risks.

Over the past few decades, tremendous advancements have been made in the realm of space transportation, enabling the transportation of goods and humans to space with increasing efficiency. Naturally, entrepreneurs and investors are drawn to this industry, recognising its potential. The private equity fund in question noticed the prospects within the space transportation market but understood the inherent risks involved, prompting their decision to engage Novaspace for a comprehensive evaluation.

To aid the fund in making an informed decision, we employed a range of due diligence services that form an integral part of our portfolio. Among these services was our commercial analysis, wherein we conducted an in-depth examination of market demand, potential, and future outlook. We investigated the competitive landscape, identified industry trends and threats, and scrutinised the various business models associated with the investment. Armed with this comprehensive understanding of the market and the opportunities it presented, our client was equipped to make sound investment choices.

Additionally, our technical due diligence service played a vital role in the evaluation process. We conducted an exhaustive study to assess the investment’s technical feasibility, carefully assessing potential technical risks and identifying possible setbacks and operational hazards. By doing so, we provided the private equity fund with a comprehensive overview of the technical challenges and associated risks.

Moreover, our execution due diligence service ensured that our client was fully prepared to execute their investment plan with confidence. We conducted a thorough quality analysis of the supply chain, verified the credibility of suppliers, and assessed the potential execution risks. This meticulous evaluation process aimed to mitigate uncertainties and provide our client with a clear understanding of the complexity of the execution phase.

Nevertheless, our involvement did not end there. We went above and beyond by assisting the private equity fund in developing their financial model. To ensure the highest level of expertise and accuracy in our analysis, we assembled a top-tier advisory group of space experts, including astronauts, former agency directors, and investment managers. This collaborative approach ensured the most reliable, undisputable, and well-rounded assessment possible.

The comprehensive and detailed assessment we delivered was met with great appreciation by our client. Encouraged by our findings, the private equity fund made the decision to proceed with the investment, positioning themselves to operate in the rapidly expanding field of space transportation.
