Bono to become even more rich due to Facebook IPO...
LINK
quote:

Thanks to Facebook U2 frontman Bono is set to become the richest rock star in the world.

Bono owns 1.5% of the shares in the social networking site through his private equity firm Elevation Partners, meaning that when Facebook goes onto the stock exchange later this year his shares are reported to be worth just under $1billion (£630million).

Elevation Partners invested in the site back in 2009, forking out $90million (£56million) for the shares. Facebook filing for its initial public offering on Wednesday (February 9) will make Bono worth $1.1billion (£695million), £189million richer than ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.

saw something about this last Thursday on the news. Crazy!

You hear about the guy who painted the Facebook offices? Agreed to get paid in Facebook stock.

The guy who painted the murals at the FB headquarters is now worth 200 million because he took stock in the company!

So 1.5% of Facebook is worth $1 Billion? That makes Facebook worth $67 billion!

Sean Parker was never actually ousted. He was just cut out of the day to day. He always kept shares, and he would be stupid not to have.

It said it would make him worth 1.1 billion not it would make him worth ANOTHER 1.1billion. I assume they were talking about his total worth at 1.1 billion

No. This is what the article said:

"Bono owns 1.5% of the shares in the social networking site through his private equity firm Elevation Partners, meaning that when Facebook goes onto the stock exchange later this year his shares are reported to be worth just under $1billion (£630million).

Wow. How much will he donate to his charity? Or will he use the $$$$ to try and get more $$$$ from others? How many pairs of sunglases will he buy with that cash?

So will this have the effect of slowing down or stopping recording and touring? Bono obviously won't be needing the cash.
