Facebook has filed for a $5 billion IPO

Facebook has filed for a $5 billion IPO

Facebook’s S1 has dropped, at last. Here are some of the things that caught our eye at first. To begin, the figures on the company’s current userbase:
g287954g94k38 520x664 Facebook has 845 million monthly users, and other interesting S 1 facts

The Numbers

2011 revenue: 3.711 billion dollars
2011 net income: 695 million dollars
Diluted 2011 EPS: 46 cents per share
As a note, at a PE of 100, Facebook’s share’s would be priced at around 46 dollar each, given that EPS figure. Assuming that Facebook will have grown by the time it picks a price, that number will have gone up. Of course, we don’t know what sort of valuation Facebook is shooting for.
Total income from operations in 2011: 1.756 billion
Total cash and cash equivalents on hand: 3.908 billion dollars
Total liabilities: 1.432 billion dollars

Mark Zuckerberg is the largest shareholder with 28 percent of the company. He’s followed by Accel (invested in 2005) and Accel Partner Jim Breyer who owns 11.4 percent of the company. Co-founder Dustin Moskovitz owns 7.6 percent of the company, followed by DST with 5.4 percent. Peter Thiel, Facebook’s first investor, owns 2.5 percent. COO Sheryl Sandburg has 1,899,986
