Facebook’s Latest Valuation: $87.5 BillionMay 28, 2011 5:45 am
We have written about Facebook valuation and the value of an active Facebook user. We have also pointed out the issue with Facebook’s valuation. We had written about how, in light of LinkedIn’s IPO., Facebook must actually be worth some 200 billion or so. We spotted this today:
“Facebook shares on private secondary markets like SecondMarket and SharesPost spiked briefly in March to $34 – an $85 billion valuation. But they settled down to around $31.50 after that and have mostly stayed around that level since then. But something caused the shares to surge past that old record to a solid $35 per share in this week’s auction. Our guess is that newly public LinkedIn’s somewhat impressive P/E ratio of 2,500 may have something to do with it.
$35 per share values Facebook at roughly $87.5 billion. ”
