Facebook increases the price and the number of shares that will bring the bag

(Cc) Eston

More action and more expensive: Facebook will bring to bag 25% more of the actions planned for release, at a higher price per unit, which would become the third most highly valued company in its IPO in U.S. history States, after General Motors and Visa.

And is that as outlined in CNBC, Zuckerberg’s social network will increase 85 million shares in its premiere, so eventually will offer some 422 million shares in its debut on Wall Street, scheduled for May 18.

The reason for the rise would be the great interest shown by investors at the offer of Zuckerberg’s social network. And so the expectation is to also talk of an increase in the unit price of common shares: It would be between $ 28 and U.S. $ 35 (22 and 27.5 euros), to be between U.S. $ 34 and $ 38 per unit (between 26.7 and 29.8 euros).

With such an increase would raise Facebook about U.S. $ 15,000 million (about 11,800 million) in its release, which definitely overshadow the debut of Google which grossed about U.S. $ 1,900 million in 2004.

Given these figures, which are almost impossible to pronounce, we always have doubts: Is it really worth much Facebook, or are inflated to infinity the dreaded bubble 2.0? Only time will answer …
