New York, New York (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
RoadFish.com men's lifestyle and finance magazine today congratulated Facebook as the online social network prepares to open its stock to the public this week. In their article Roadfish commends Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for the upcoming stock market launch, and expresses pride in the company for its dedication and hard work.
The Wall Street Journal announced on January 28th that Facebook was in preparations for an IPO filing within the coming week, which the WSJ estimates could put the social network’s valuation to as much as $100 billion, roughly equal to the worth of McDonald’s.
RoadFish's editor is quoted as saying, “I was lucky enough to be asked to help Facebook back when they were first ramping up making money with the site. The company is staffed with tough, creative, exceptional people. I am really proud of what everyone has accomplished. The site has become an integral part of most of our lives, and will be for a long time to come. I am excited for my friends who still work there that they may all become very rich with an IPO.”
When asked in an interview with Charlie Rose in November 2011 why he is considering an IPO, Zuckerberg said, “I actually think the biggest thing for us is that a big part of being a technology company is getting the best engineers and designers and talented people around the world. And one of the ways that you can do that is you compensate people with equity or options… so you get people who want to join the company, both for the [mission] because they believe that Facebook is doing this awesome thing and they want to be a part of connecting everyone in the world, but also, if the company does well, then they get financially rewarded and can be set.”
RoadFish.com states, "We are excited to see what the future holds for Facebook, and feel that any further success is extremely well-deserved."
According to the Wall Street Journal, Facebook is considering Morgan Stanley to lead the upcoming deal.
