Friday's Facebook IPO Will Make these People Insanely Rich

By on May 17, 2012 in ArticlesEntertainment

On Friday, May 18th, Facebook will finally have it's long awaited Initial Public Offering (IPO). When a company has an IPO, it offers a portion of its shares to the public on a stock exchange like the Nasdaq or the NYSE. This allows a private company to raise a ton of money in a very short period of time. It also allows any insider who owns a private share of the company to sell it publicly for the first time. For example if you were recently hired by Facebook, you may have been given XYZ number of shares as a perk. Those shares were difficult to sell without a public market. But that all changes Friday, when Facebook goes public on the Nasdaq at an expected price per share of $38 which would give the company a $104 billion valuation! Facebook will sell 337 million shares of the company to raise nearly $13 billion in cash. Many individuals will also sell their shares but most will be restricted from selling anything for 6 months by SEC regulations. But they'll still be insanely rich! And if Facebook's share price rises, they'll be worth millions and billions more when they are able to sell!
