Facebook is worth about $126 billion ahead of its IPO, according to a new research note by Sterne Agee’s Arvind Bhatia.Analyst firm Sterne Agee just set a price target of $46 for Facebook with a “buy” rating — it’s one of a handful of firms that have already issued a rating on it.
After going public, Facebook will have around 2.75 billion outstanding shares (including options), according to its most recent filing with the Securities and Exchange commission.
Included in the note are a ton of detailed charts about Facebook’s financial performance. It’s very detailed — and worth checking out if you look to buy into Facebook’s IPO.
Most of them come from Asia, Europe and the United States and Canada. But it's growing rapidly in other countries like those in South America.
It's also growing very quickly in Asia, whereas the growth is slowing in Europe, the U.S. and Canada.
Most of them come from Europe, but growth in the rest of the world outside of the three largest regions is continuing on a steady pace.
Facebook has huge potential in China — an extra 200 million plus users and around $600 million in revenue.
Revenue from Payments has leveled off slightly after taking off like a rocket. That's the revenue Facebook makes every time you buy something on Facebook with Facebook credits.
But Payments is becoming an increasingly important segment of Facebook's revenue. Facebook has said it's committed to it.
Most of Facebook's revenue comes from the U.S. and Canada. Europe is the second-largest contributor.
Facebook's business is still affected seasonally — with growth dropping off between the fourth and first quarters on a quarter-over-quarter basis.
Here's the full consolidated look at Facebook's future revenue potential. Sterne Agee predicts more than $1 billion in annual revenue off payments.
