Zynga has just filed with the SEC to go public.The company is on pace to generate well over $1 billion in revenue this year, and earn over $36 million.
It’s a pretty slim profit margin considering reports were circulating that Zynga was earning $400 million on $800 million in revenue earlier this year.
It wants to raise $1 billion from the IPO, and it already has $1 billion in cash on hand.
