Mark Zukerberg To Make Over $12 Billion Selling Facebook Out In Coming Months


Mark Zuckerberg will sell as many as 75 million Facebook shares, currently worth $12.8 billion, over the next 18 months
.
The intention to sell between 35 million and 75 million shares was disclosed in a Facebook securities filing late Friday.

.
Proceeds of the sale will go "to fund the philanthropic initiatives of Mr. Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan," the filing said.
.
The company also said it would scrap a plan to create a new class of shares that would have allowed Zuckerberg to keep a majority of voting control in the company even if his actual ownership stake was far less.
.
Investors had sued to stop that plan, but the case was settled on Friday. Zuckerberg had been scheduled to testify in the case next week.
.
Facebook shares closed Friday at $170.54 a share. The stock slipped slightly in after-hours trading after the filing was disclosed.
