If you’ve always wanted to add the title “Facebook part-owner” to your resume, the opportunity could be arriving soon. That Facebook Initial Public Offering that wasn’t supposed to occur until late this year could happen this week. The stock sale could be one of the most lucrative ever for an American business, pumping as much as $10 billion into the company.
Potential Facebook investors who were salivating over snagging a piece of the company come April will have to wait several months longer than expected to buy in. The social networking behemoth delayed its initial public offering, which could possibly be the largest in history, from April to an undisclosed time late in 2012.
