Facebook’s IPO set for May 18th.


The long awaited IPO that was announced early this past February by CEO Mark Zuckerberg has now been set to be released in about two and a half weeks.  On May 7th, the Social Network will begin its IPO roadshow in order to reach out to potential investors.  Zuckerberg will likely only be present at some of the events along the roadshow, but COO Sheryl Sandberg  and CFO David Ebersman will fill in everything else.

The IPO is expected to be valued at $100 billion, which should give Zuckerberg the official title as one of the richest men in the world.  So, would you like to own part of Facebook?  Just set aside a quick 50 bucks and you’re good to go.

About madie m.

Hello, my name is Madie. I'm a born and raised Norfolkian, took the popular public school route, (Larchmont Elementary , Blair Middle, Maury High) and am currently finishing up my Second year at the University of Virginia. In Charlottesville I am involved in many media extracurricular activities including writing for the Arts and Entertainment section of UVa's Cavalier Daily and a morning news broadcaster on one of the area's most popular radio stations, 92.7 KISS FM. I am currently majoring in French and Economics at the University and minoring in Media Studies. I love learning about the happenings of new technologies as well as new music. I think it's incredibly important that we all keep up to date with the rapid developments of the technological world so as not to find ourselves lost in the dust. But if you're not into searching the tech sections of news sites and other sites like Mashable.com and TechCrunch.com, no worries, that's what I'm here for. Just check out my latest "digital trend" and you should be safe. Apart from the music and tech scene, I enjoy running, practicing yoga, cooking French cuisine, and doing whatever else might give me a laugh on any given day!
