$4 billion in cash and approximately $12 billion worth of Facebook shares. The agreement also provides for an additional $3 billion in restricted stock units to be granted to WhatsApp’s founders and employees that will vest over four years subsequent to closing.
This just in from Facebook newsroom.
Which is shocking to me Bcuz I didn’t see that one coming.
No rumors no shit.
It just happened.
It’s weird though, Bcuz Facebook already have it’s own chatting platform with a dedicated app.
But i guess it’s no way near WhatsApp.
First it was Viber, and now WhatsApp.
Who’s Next in Line?!
