Word has it that GSV Capital Corp. has purchased 225,000 shares of Facebook for $6.6 million.

Word has it that GSV Capital Corp. has purchased 225,000 shares of Facebook for $6.6 million.

Assuming such a deal actually occurred and that that Facebook still has 2.5 billion outstanding shares, the transaction implies a value of over $73.3 billion for Facebook.

We’ve seen varying figures in media reports on this deal, although it appears that both Reuters and The Wall Street Journal have been rounding off the numbers.

What these others do concur on: GSV has scored a discount on the purchase, since the last known auction of Facebook shares resulted in a value of $87.5 billion for the company.

We know Facebook has a policy of not commenting on matters of speculation, which would include this as-yet unconfirmed transaction.

Readers, do you think GSV got a good deal on the Facebook stock, assuming the transaction actually happened at the rumored amount?
