Sir Richard Branson risks losing his grip on Virgin Galactic as he continues to sell down his stake in the space tourism venture to fund his pandemic-hit businesses.
The British Billionaire Richard Branson sold approximately 4% of his space company Virgin Galactic. Branson sold about 10.5 million shares through a firm he controls. Although he owns less than 18% of the company, he remains the largest shareholder. Branson will use the money to support existing and develop new enterprises. Sir Richard has already sold Virgin Galactic shares: in April 2021 for about $150 million, in 2020 for $300 million.
Branson can appoint the three board members if Virgin and former investment partner Aabar Space retain more than 50% of their original stake in the company. After the past sale, the British billionaire owns 50,6% of the company.
