Yesterday Facebook filed its S-1. One section of the document states all of the acquisitions Facebook has made since mid 2010.
One startup was acquired yesterday, while everyone was too busy to notice.
The S-1 states:
On February 1, 2012, we issued 212,250 shares of our Class A common stock as partial consideration to two entities in connection with our purchase of certain assets from a company.
The S-1 doesn’t reveal which startup was acquired, but whoever it was now has about $6.3 million worth of Facebook stock.
It may not be the first acquisition Facebook has made in 2012 either. The S-1 also reveals Facebook issued 90,000 shares of Class A common stock on January 3, 2012 to another unknown acquired company. Those shares, which are worth about $2.7 million, went to “four individuals and 13 entities in connection with our purchase of certain assets from a company.”
It’s possible the January 3 shares went to Gowalla, which was acquired for about $3 million worth of Facebook stock in December.
