Now that Facebook has raised a $1.5 billion financing round, led by Goldman Sachs, its new investors are waiting for their fortunes to multiply.
While some critics remain skeptical that Facebook — which is said to have made about $2 billion in revenue last year — is worth the round’s $50 billion valuation, momentum is certainly on the company’s side.
Shares of Facebook are still soaring in the secondary market.The company’s shares are trading at an implied valuation of $76 billion, according to Sharespost. For the biggest Facebook bulls, the next number to contemplate is $100 billion.
According to a new report by the financial research firm Trefis, that is certainly possible.
