Facebook?s Amended S-1: 901 Million Users, 500M Mobile, Paid $300M Cash + 23M Shares For Instagram
Facebook has just filed a fourth amendment to its S-1 to IPO that notes that it now has 500 million mobile users, 901 million monthly active users, and that it paid 23 million shares at $30.89 a share plus $300 million cash for Instagram for a total of $1,010,470,000. Facebook also made $1.058 billion in revenue in the first quarter of 2012, up 44.7% from Q1 2012 but down 6.5% from Q4 2011. So if Facebook maintains its current revenue rate, it would make between $4.69 and $4.81 on each of its 901 million users each year. Read on for more on Facebook's business, user counts, photos, apps, employees, Instagram, and to see our embed of the full amended S-1.
