The Associated Press
Facebook is selling 180 million of its shares in its initial public offering. Another 157 million are coming from existing stockholders, including the company's earliest investors and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who's selling some of his stock to cover tax obligations.
Even after the IPO, Zuckerberg will remain Facebook's single largest shareholder. And he will control the company through 57 per cent of its voting stock.
At a value of $38 per share, the high end of Facebook's expected range, Facebook would generate $6.8 billion on its shares. Existing stockholders would collectively make $6 billion.
