Facebook Already Amends Its IPO Filing Paperwork (FB)

Print Email

In a highly unusual move, Facebook has an amended S-1 filing already in at the SEC.  That is a near-record time.  The company is noting: “This Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-179287) of Facebook, Inc. (Registration Statement) is being filed solely for the purpose of filing certain exhibits as indicated in Part II of this Amendment No. 1. This Amendment No. 1 does not modify any provision of the prospectus that forms a part of the Registration Statement. Accordingly, a preliminary prospectus has been omitted.”

This shows Indemnification of Directors and Officers, changes to plan-related share issuances, other common stock issuances, a full list of acquisitions, Exhibits and Financial Statement Schedules and more.

The full amended IPO filing is here.

There is no public market for Facebook shares as of yet, so the fallout here should be minimal other than the news reporting about how fast the changes are.
