In this paper we discuss exponential functionals of the multi-factor variance gamma (VG) process. This process is a generalization of the well-known VG process. We obtain analytically the expectations of the considered functionals. Derived formulas are based on values of generalized hypergeometric functions. Applications of the established results to option pricing are given.
