This week Facebook told the secondary market traders that they need to stop trading securities in Facebook.com in the run up to its May IPO
Today Sharespost.com just closed it last offering of Facebook shares and the selling price was $44.10 a share
At $44 a share the market cap of Facebook is around $110 Billion dollars which is I think more than the market cap expected by Facebook itself who was looking to sell shares giving it a $100 Billion valuation when it’s IPO hits in May.
So if you followed TheDomains.com for a while you could have bought shares of Facebook back in January 2010, for around $28 a share and sold them today for $44 and still had 4x the numbers of shares for free!!
After the final auction today, Sharespost.com, announced they were laying off 10% of their workforce because they couldn’t sell shares in Facebook anymore.
