Facebook IPO Price Projection:

There has been a lot of buzz in the last year about when Facebook will finally go public – especially with all the recent tech IPOs – and how much the company will be valued at when they announce their IPO.

Many experts have already made informal predictions that Facebook is worth over 100 billion and will raise more than 10 billion in stock upon release. In comparison, Google raised 1.67 billion when they went public in 2004.

Not included in the infographic is the price of $38-$40 per share that PrivCo estimates the 2.35 billion Facebook shares will initially be priced at.

An infographic (posted below) was recently published by AccountingDegreeOnline.net that puts the enormous size of Facebook’s future IPO into perspective.

There is very little doubt that Facebook is going to announce their IPO in 2012 and after reviewing this infographic you will understand how influential this event will be on the entire business world.

    Catching title: Facebook Price Projection, except that no where in the article did you mention the projected IPO price per share !

  2. Anson Alexander says:


    First of all thanks for reading and providing feedback! You're right, the price per share was not in included in the infographic regarding Facebook's valuation and IPO price projection.

    I've done some more research and added information regarding the $38-$40 per share price that is estimated for the Facebook IPO.

    Hope it helps!

    Facebook will pass on– unless it is adopted as Orwell's "telescreen" by wiorld governments and the European-Anglo bankers. The bankers own and control Facebook and will dazzle us with misleading statistics about the "value" of Facebook. You left Microsoft out as an owner in your graph. Microsoft got 50 pecent of Facebook's ad profits. You didn't include that little gem of private information into your liberal future projections. Quit lying about how Facebook's IPO will be so lucrative. It's a con-job! GWH

    If they file for a public offering, how much money can they raise? Are people really this irrational? When there is a bubble or a stock value goes up it goes up incrementally, this means that normally the stock total market value is the value of the last trade multiplied by the number of shares outstanding. This is how the other stocks in the market get their value.

    If Facebook has …an itinital pricing that is say $100B then they will actually receive $100B! This is not rational. Why would anyone buy it, there would not be room for it to go up, and only rational thought is that there would be room to go down.Facebook has a better chance to go out at much less and then run up with incremental stock purchases for value. The investor then gets the value. The way Facebook is positioning the Facebook would receieve this value in real dollars and the investor would then be left to take the fall. Please market, tell me you are rational and will not allow this to occur. The market can not be this dumb! Can't wait to see what happens. Based on the above, if you buy and give into this overpriced valuation at the begining, then there will not be very far for Facebook to travel upwards. If this upward direction doesn't exist so strongly, then there would only be down to go. Facebook would then capture there money.Please market don't forget fundamentals or fundamentals will end up haunting your pocket book leaving you thinking, what happened?Investors should also be concerned about the Facebook's revenue! Will their revenue really go up? I would assume that they will only face more and more competition as other companies enter the market to provide social networking advertising dollars. The amount of advertising dollars is not unlimited. Remember, that this current cash flow assumes a year where Google plus didn't have really strong traction, Google plus alone could hurt their ability to continue at this rate.Right now they are a first mover, but this could be a disadvantage in the advertising revenue business since there are limited total add dollars. Please consider the above before you buy a share. There may just be too many shares available! This math doesn't add up
