Facebook’s S1 has dropped, at last. Here are some of the things that caught our eye at first. To begin, the figures on the company’s current userbase:
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
2011 revenue: 3.711 billion dollars
2011 net income: 695 million dollars
Diluted 2011 EPS: 46 cents per share
As a note, at a PE of 100, Facebook’s share’s would be priced at around 46 dollars each, given that EPS figure. Assuming that Facebook will have grown by the time it picks a price, that number will have gone up. Of course, we don’t know what sort of valuation Facebook is shooting for.
Total income from operations in 2011: 1.756 billion
Total cash and cash equivalents on hand: 3.908 billion dollars
Total liabilities: 1.432 billion dollars
According to Facebook, these are their current use statistics:
- We had 845 million MAUs as of December 31, 2011, an increase of 39% as compared to 608 million MAUs as of December 31, 2010.
- We had 483 million daily active users (DAUs) on average in December 2011, an increase of 48% as compared to 327 million DAUs in December 2010.
- We had more than 425 million MAUs who used Facebook mobile products in December 2011.
- There were more than 100 billion friend connections on Facebook as of December 31, 2011.
- Our users generated an average of 2.7 billion Likes and Comments per day during the three months ended December 31, 2011.
Who owns Facebook?
Mark Zuckerberg, of course, is the largest owner. He’s followed by Accel Partners, co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and DST owns 5.4% of the company. Starting January 1st, 2013, Mark Zuckerberg’s salary will go from $500,000 to $1 per year.
Putting Facebook’s Revenue in Perspective:
As the excellent @Jwherrman put it: “Facebook’s 2011 revenue was $3.7b. For reference: AOL’s was $2.2; Google’s was 10 times higher, at ~$37b.”
