I am more interested in finding out what the company is really worth.

The $4.2 billion tax payment was announced. We have to assume that this has been built in to the current $22 stock price.

The question in my mind is whether Facebook is worth $22 x the number of shares that will be outstanding by year end? 1.2 billion new shares will be issued via RSU releases by the end of 2012.

Is the real face book value is current market cap divided by its shares (included the new 1.2 billion) or is it the current stock price multiplied by the total number of shares?

All investors have been aware of the upcoming releases. I just wonder if they have built those shares into pricing, or if pricing will suffer. Then...what will be the impact on taxes to employees and payouts by Facebook?
