Pre-IPO Investment in Facebook, Inc.
n one of our most successful operations—in participation with Prorsus Capital—Alma Capital gained access to a pre-IPO round of financing for Facebook, Inc. The window to participate in this round of financing was very short, and we had to execute quickly. Demonstrating some of our key strengths, we were able to complete the necessary steps and harness the resources to maximize our profit potential.
Given the structure of the deal (these types of investments often come with constraints on exiting your position), getting in successfully did not guarantee a profit. The rest is history. This operation resulted in a very successful investment that established us as a viable player in pre-IPO Silicon Valley startup financing.
