Write a paper in which you do the following: [NOTE: Be prepared to write at least 10-12+ pages.]
1. Briefly describe the type of financing that was being used here and why it was used for each round of funding.
2. Speculate as to what the money was used for after each successive round of financing. (Don’t forget, Facebook was raising money to finance certain projects.)
3. Provide an explanation behind the company’s bubbly corporate valuation during this time.
4. Determine how outside investors were valuing this company. (Hint: look at similar businesses.)
5. Estimate the company’s major financial numbers (revenue and net income) based on the implied valuation of the most recent investment.
NOTE: Be certain that you carefully read each of the Rubric’s requirements….and that you properly address each one in your paper.
Because everyone will be researching Facebook and MySpace, a sample paper cannot be provided for this assignment.
