It was the sorrow of many experts, know the figures of the deal, as long as you can define that,Facebook-Instagram . Early assumptions were made that left no room for special deals. The reality, thankfully, has been unveiled by the New York Times.
According to the document, the terms of the treaty were as follows. L ‘net acquisition of $ 1 billion is composed of two parts:
- 30% in cash
- 70% in shares of Facebook
But they are worth at this point the actions of the social giant? One of the latest assessment was about $ 30 per share, for a total of over 75 billion.
But the forecasts and estimates are constantly changing. Some estimates will be of a value is around $ 104 billion, which means that the stock of shares which it holds Instagram could amount to about 1/3 more than what Facebook has evaluated.
In essence, the 70% could be considered a bargain in the case where the actions of Facebook should go up over time, a flop in the opposite case. In fact, exceed $ 30 fee is not utopia, especially when you are driven by the euphoria of early IPOs. Later, especially in a time of economic crisis, it could be worse.
In other words, Facebook could actually have paid over $ 1 billion to buy Instagram. There’s only a matter still unresolved: Facebook will issue more shares to cover the purchase massif that has ended?
For now, you can enjoy one of the platforms most popular photo-sharing and plan how to increase revenue by converging the two social giants.
That’s a lot of money.
