With the world’s most awaited IPO filing finally out, let’s have a look at what the valuations look like.
The charts below shows FB financials, valuations, and peer analysis. I have assumed a slowing net income growth due to the base effect. There are 3 IPO scenarios here, $5bn raised at different prices. Scenario 1 gives us a pre-money valuation of $70bn, which is the lowest valuation figure I’ve come across in news articles. Scenario 2 considers the current share price of FB on sharespost.com, and Scenario 3 is at the rumored issue price of $45.
