Is your stock liquid or frozen?


INPUT BY JD MORRIS: Private market providers such as SecondMarket could have the SEC on their back and that could mean your “private liquid stock could be frozen!”

500 ISSUES: For one thing, companies generally like to know who their shareholders are. For another, private companies worry that trading in their stock may leave them with more than 500 shareholders of record, which would require them to report financial information under the Securities Exchange Act — in other words, to go public.

BIG MONEY IN PRIVATE STOCKS: Trefis currently puts Facebook’s worth at a (relatively) modest $45 billion, but the firm says there are four likely developments that could push the social network’s value to $125 billion (BookDeal) http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2011/01/24/how-facebook-could-reach-125-billion/
