Twitter Alerts Via Twitter That Will Enter the Stock Market

The Twitter surprised everyone on Thursday (12) by announcing that filed for initial public offering (IPO, the acronym in English) in the equivalent of the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States. Perhaps the most anticipated IPO since Facebook entered the technological Nasdaq in May last year.

Not to lose the mastery of the thing, the announcement was made by Twitter tweet it. No press releases or something.

WE’VE CONFIDENTIALLY SUBMITTED AN S-1 TO THE SEC FOR IPO PLANNED. THIS TWEET DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF ANY SECURITIES FOR SALE.

Then also made fun saying that’s announcement, it was time to get back to work.

The paperwork for the IPO was sent to regulators “for months”, according to the online platform. This means that Twitter was used in the terms of a law (ironically known as Law JOBS) grants to companies with annual revenues of up to $ 1 billion the right to request stealthily stock trading. Analysts point out that Twitter should sell the house through a billion dollars annually. No one can speak about the company’s net profit.

Who will lead the entry of Twitter in the bag will be the Goldman Sachs financial company, in recent times, calculated the value market of social network (!) At 10 billion dollars. Basically, Twitter worth 20 times annual revenues.

Who will win money with the IPO? It is known that the investment funds of Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, and Marc Andreessen, founder of Netscape, have participation on Twitter a few years ago. It also has the Union Square Ventures, responsible for finance Foursquare and Kickstarter operations. Another capital fund venture, Spark Capital invested in Tumblr – are richer than ever after the sale to Yahoo.

Who not going to make money from the operation? I do. You probably do not either.

The expectation is that the entry of Twitter in the stock market occur differently than we have seen on the Facebook fiasco. The social network entered the Nasdaq to $ 38 per share, but then collapsed, was worth half that, with the right research on fraud. Interestingly, two weeks ago the company hit the milestone of recovery in the market: more than 100 billion dollars.
