Facebook IPO at $100B Val Could Come Wednesday, Says WSJ
By Tiernan Ray

blogs.barrons.com

The Wall Street Journal’s Shayndi Raice and Randall Smith this afternoon report that Facebookmay file for an initial public offering as soon as next Wednesday, valuing the company in a range of $75 billion to $100 billion, citing multiple anonymous sources.

The news comes two days after reports that private trading in shares of Facebook were being suspended.

A source I spoke with earlier this week with one investor owns private shares of Facebook opined that the valuation will likely be in the $40 range, above recent private trades at around $30. That would push the valuation toward the upper end of the range Raice and Smith are discussing. Indeed this source opined that the valuation out of the chute would probably be around $100 billion.

I would note that SharesPostof late has displayed recent transactions for Facebook at a price of $34, and states that the implied market value is $80 billion.

Facebook Eyes IPO Dates of May 17 or May 24

Facebook has homed in on two possible dates to launch its initial public offering on the Nasdaq, according to a person familiar with the matter. Bankers & management are currently looking at a primary target date of May 16 or May 17 to price the deal (with trading commencing the following day), according to this person, and trading would commence the following morning. The company would begin marketing the deal on May 7 under that scenario. The final timing, however, will be highly dependent on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s review of Facebook’s recently announced $1 billion acquisition of Instagram. While bankers expect the commission to give the deal a go-ahead by the end of April, unforeseen comments or questions from regulators could push IPO pricing back by roughly one week.

If that were the case, the company would default to a plan B, which would aim to price the deal on May 23 or 24 and begin trading the following day.

Facebook revises user policies after complaints, questions

Following a lengthy period of questions, comments and complaints about the difficulty users have in controlling privacy, Facebook has posted a series of proposed revisions to its Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, and is extending the comment period. The company continues to struggle with balance between gathering information about users for the benefit of both other users and advertisers, while addressing concerns of users, most of whom do not fully understand Facebook's data collection.

My entire high school graduating class first migrated from classmates.com to Facebook and then abandoned it for a blog site when it became apparent that FB leaks personal information like a sieve. In tests we found that an email address created and used for FB and nothing else started receiving spam as little as two weeks after FB account creation.

Only the extremely naive or foolish use their real information for Facebook. As FB has no problem with anything that pads their number of users, they are quite happy to have more bogus accounts than real ones. Their actions to purge "phony" ( smart ) users were pure press release filler material, the stated percentage of such accounts they found was so small as to amount to an admission that they couldn't really tell which ones were real or they didn't really care to try.

Patience, FB will be a fine short later in life, and IMO a lot sooner than many people expect.

The most important and useful link in all of Facebook appears below.

By taking this action of personal self defence, you strike a blow for freedom in a world turned into collaborating national security states, a world even worse than George Orwell ever envisioned. Log into your FB account one last time and start resisting this seductive instrument of surveillance and control.
