Hong Kong Billionaire Ups Facebook Stake

Hong Kong mobile tycoon Li Ka-shing has invested another $40+ million in Facebook, upping his stake in Mark Zuckerberg’s social networking site to more than $100 million, MarketWatch reports. Li previously invested $60 million for a 0.4% stake of Facebook.

We haven’t heard otherwise, so we think it’s safe to assume his more recent investment was at the same $15 billion valuation.

To recap — here’s who else thinks Facebook is worth $15 billion:

  • German Internet entrepreneurs the Samwer brothers
  • Microsoft (MSFT)

Anyone else?
