Correction needed: Facebook isn't going public. This is a private placement investment, not an IPO.

Facebook was recently valued at $50B, I believe, not $1.5B.

Great post thought. I like the variety of articles.


Thanks for the correction re: the private placement versus IPO. The $50 billion figure is actually a theoretical valuation placed on Facebook, and the $1.5 billion is the amount of equity being raised.

It's not very lean to build another shelf to store an item that doesn't add value for the customer.

Should the shelf for the older awards perhaps be put to to better use?
