Facebook, Zynga Add Fees to Stock Sales, as Early Employees Consider Sale Options


Facebook and Zynga are reportedly charging fees of between $2,500 and $6,000 for sales of company stock as employees leaving both companies around the turn of the year may bring more sellers onto private markets.

Both companies are trying to keep their numbers of shareholders below 500, a critical mark that triggers additional financial disclosures required by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Those fees would go to cover the administrative costs of ensuring compliance with SEC regulations and to ensure they aren’t inadvertently enlarging the number of shareholders.
