Early Facebook investor Peter Thiel sells majority of shares
by Deborah Netburn August 20, 2012, 7:28 p.m.
Peter Thiel, one of the earliest investors in Facebook, has sold the majority of his stake in the social networking company, according to a financial document filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday.
Thiel has been involved with the company since August 2004, when he put $500,000 into the social network start-up.
The filing shows that the German-born billionaire and co-founder of PayPal sold almost 20 million shares last Thursday and Friday. CNN Money reports that the investor and his funds should get about $395.8 million from the sale.
Thiel has now made a reported $1 billion from his initial Facebook investment, and there may still be more to be made. While Thiel has sold most of his Facebook stock, he still has shares worth about $112 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Thiel started his great Facebook sell-off in May of this year. He sold 16.8 million shares during the company's initial public offering, but had to wait until last week to sell additional shares because of a lockup period for insiders selling stock.
That lockup period expired on Thursday, when Facebook shares plunged as much as $1.49, or 7%, to $19.71.
The SEC filing shows that Thiel sold his shares for $19.27 to $20.69.
Em Novembro, quando serão liberadas para venda 1 bilhão e 200 milhões ações a coisa vai ficar feia, principalmente para os empregados da FB que receberam bonus em ações e estão impedidos de vender até lá.
Another 1.66 billion locked-up Facebook shares will be freed up for sale over the next nine months, likely to place more pressure on the stock.
One of the biggest tests will come in November when the next batch of 1.2 billion shares will be eligible for sale.
As Facebook’s share price continues to plummet, critics have accused Mark Zuckerberg of being ‘in over his hoodie’ and called for him to step down as CEO.

Microsoft lucra ao vender papéis do Facebook antes de queda
São Paulo - A Microsoft vendeu 20% das ações que ela detinha do Facebook logo após a entrada da rede social na bolsa Nasdaq, em junho, informa nesta segunda-feira relatório publicado pela agência de notícias Associated Press.
A transação, que envolveu 6,6 milhões de ações vendidas a 38 dólares cada, rendeu 250 milhões de dólares à gigante do software, valor suficiente para cobrir os investimentos da companhia feitos em 2007 – que chegaram a 240 milhões de dólares.
s investimentos ajudaram a Microsoft a incluir seus produtos, como o serviço de buscas Bing e o Bing Maps, na rede social. Atualmente, todos os resultados de buscas e mapas apresentados no Facebook são provenientes de serviços da Microsoft.
Desde o lançamento das ações do Facebook na bolsa de valores, o valor dos papéis vem se depreciando. Neste mês, chegou a 19 dólares, metade da cifra registrada na abertura do capital da empresa.

02-09-2012, 12:43 #7Didn't anyone even read Facebook's IPO prospectus?
The answer, I can only assume, is "no."
Because if anyone had read the Facebook IPO prospectus, they would have learned, among other things, the following:
- Facebook's growth rate was decelerating rapidly.
- Facebook's user-base was rapidly transitioning to mobile devices, which produce much less revenue.
- Facebook's operating profit margin was already an astounding 50%, which suggested it had nowhere to go but down.
- Facebook's CEO had a nearly unprecedented amount of control over the company.
- Facebook's CEO had set up this astounding level of control intentionally. Mark Zuckerberg knew all about how impatient public-market shareholders are. And he set up the whole company so he would never have to pay attention to their whining.
- In the 9 months following the IPO, insiders would be free to sell more than 2 billion shares of Facebook that they had been holding for years.
- Facebook was going public at an astoundingly high price for a company with these characteristics—about 60-times the following year's projected earnings, in a market in which other hot tech companies like Apple and Google were trading at less than 15-times.
Even more importantly, if anyone had read the IPO prospectus, they also would have learned the following, all of which was expressed in a letter written directly to prospective shareholders by CEO Mark Zuckerberg:
- Facebook's social mission is more important to Mark Zuckerberg than Facebook's business.
- Facebook's business exists to support Facebook's product development, not the other way around.
- Facebook's CEO is an extremely patient man who does not flinch under criticism.
- Facebook will never care as much about clients and shareholders as it does about its service and users.
- Facebook cares about the long term, not the short term (read: decades, not months).
Facebook shareholders may be annoyed by those facts, especially now that the value of their stakes are getting demolished.
But they can't say that they weren't warned.
And they also can't say that the stock has been unduly punished:
At $18, using the correct share count (2.7 billion), Facebook is still valued at almost $50 billion. And it's still trading at ~28-times next year's projected earnings of $0.65, an estimate that looks just as likely to be too high as it is to be too low. Meanwhile, Apple is still trading at less than 15-times projected earnings. So you can't argue that Facebook is now "too cheap."
