Here’s how Facebook’s ownership splits between Zuckerberg and other early investors

Here’s the sheet with the breakdown of early investors:

Mark Zuckerberg manages to hold onto 28.4 percent of Class B shares, which have 10 times the voting power of Class A shares. Facebook said in its filing today that it plans to sell up to $5 billion worth of Class A shares. Remember that Facebook has a dual-stock structure like Google, which enables the company’s directors and Zuckerberg to have more power over the long-term direction of the company without feeling short-term pressures from shareholders.

Facebook’s first venture investor Accel Partners and its representative on the company’s board Jim Breyer hold onto 11.4 percent of the Class B shares. Coming in after that is co-founder Dustin Moskovitz, who holds 7.6 percent of Class B shares. After that is DST, the Russian late-stage investment firm run by Yuri Milner, which holds 5.4 percent. Following that is Peter Thiel, who was the company’s first angel investor, with 2.5 percent. The remaining directors and investors each hold less than 1 percent of the company.
