I was looking through Facebook’s Annual Report 2012 and i couldn’t find a Shareholders Statistics section which i can usually find in the AR of companies that are listed on SGX. So i happen to see that there are a number of Class A and Class B shares under “Consolidated Balance Sheets” – am i supposed to sum up the Class A and Class B shares to get the total number of shares?
Also, I couldn’t find the profit attributable to shareholders. Could you please point me in the right direction? Thanks a lot! :)
You can get a quick overview of the company’s outstanding share by looking that at bottom part of their Form-10 cover page. And, on page 35, you can get more information on Facebook’s dual class structure. Class B has 10 votings rights compared to Class A of 1. The purpose for Mark Zuckerberg to have full control of his company while owning a smaller number of shares. Since there’s no difference in which profits are distributed, you can add both classes of shares together. You can get a breakdown of their EPS between the different class structures by referring to their financial footnotes on page 86.
