Facebook To Hold First Earnings Call July 26

By David Cohen 

Facebook’s first-ever earnings call as a publicly traded company will be held Thursday, July 26, at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. ET, according to an entry on the Facebook Investor Relations events list, which provided no other details.

Facebook began trading May 18 at $38 per share, but concerns about a projected shortfall in mobile revenue, as well as technical issues experienced by the Nasdaq exchange, immediately sent the stock downward. It closed Friday at $31.09 per share, after reaching a low point of $25.87 June 5.

Even though Facebook did not release any details about the earnings call, it’s a fairly safe bet that Chief Financial Officer David Ebersman and Chief Operating Officer (and the social network’s newest board member) Sheryl Sandberg will take part.

As for Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, your guess is as good as ours, and speculation is tough based on his sporadic participation in Facebook’s roadshow leading up to its IPO.
