The Financial Times said that the implied valuation of Facebook is worth about USD33 billion which bigger some of the major Internet giants like Yahoo!(USD18.3B) and Ebay(USD30.1B).
David Gelles, a reporter for The Financial Times wrote: “Common stock in Facebook is trading as high as $76 a share as investors scramble to get a piece of the company before it files for an initial public offering, which analysts say could be the biggest technology IPO since Google’s $1.67bn flotation in 2004.
This is amazing for a company that is barely 6 years old … and now so big. I guess its a good time for people to get a job with Facebook so that they can get the common stock. Whenever and wherever that they go IPO (whenever the economy recover perhaps) – those guys will be millionaire on paper!
I guess, the recent evaluation is in time for the new movie called The Social Network! A movie on Facebook 😀 kekekek
