Many ‘advisers’ to the company in its formative years were paid between 0.1 to 0.25 per cent of the company, according to a former employee. This now translates into tens and hundreds of millions.

After a 5-for-1 stock split in October 2010, the engineer would now have the right to buy around 325,000 shares. Assuming a $40 share price, that would yield a profit of more than $12million.

Be BoldBuilding great things means taking risks. This can be scary and prevents most companies from doing the bold things they should. However, in a world that’s changing so quickly, you’re guaranteed to fail if you don’t take any risks. We have another saying: ‘The riskiest thing is to take no risks.’ We encourage everyone to make bold decisions, even if that means being wrong some of the time.

Move FastMoving fast enables us to build more things and learn faster. However, as most companies grow, they slow down too much because they’re more afraid of making mistakes than they are of losing opportunities by moving too slowly. We have a saying: ‘Move fast and break things.’ The idea is that if you never break anything, you’re probably not moving fast enough.

As a college-focused social network, Mark Zuckerberg’s company was everything Choe, who had dropped out of school and had no interest in anything like MySpace or Friendster, hated.

A graffiti artist who painted the walls of Facebook’s first headquarters seven years ago is set for a bumper payday of $200million after he agreed to take Facebook stock instead of cash for his work.

‘At Facebook, we’re inspired by technologies that have revolutionised how people spread and consume information.

California, which has a state government facing a $9.2billion deficit, taxes capital gains from stock sales and could be in for a big revenue boost when Facebook goes public.

Engineers are the most richly rewarded. A former Facebook recruiter said in 2009, the company gave an engineer with 15 years’ experience options to buy about 65,000 shares at $6 per share.

Many “advisers” to the company at that time, which is how Mr. Choe would have been classified, would have received about 0.1 to 0.25 percent of the company, according to a former Facebook employee. That may sound like a paltry amount, but a stake that size is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, based on a market value of $100 billion. Mr. Choe’s payment is valued at roughly $200 million, according to a number of people who know Mr. Choe and Facebook executives.

The flotation of Facebook could see a billion-dollar windfall for Irish singer Bono.

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg outlined five core values for Facebook, in a letter to potential investors. The letter appears in regulatory filings for Facebook’s initial public offering of stock. Here are the five values:Focus on ImpactIf we want to have the biggest impact, the best way to do this is to make sure we always focus on solving the most important problems. It sounds simple, but we think most companies do this poorly and waste a lot of time. We expect everyone at Facebook to be good at finding the biggest problems to work on.

NOW WATCH: Here’s what happens when you drop an Apple Watch face down on cement

The filing laid bare a number of key facts about the previously secretive firm – and exposed Mr Zuckerberg’s strict control over many aspects of the company’s management.

Thanks: Facebook released a picture of some staff thanking users for their support ahead of its $5billion initial public offering. But some users don’t think that is enough thanks and they want a cut of the money

Other risk factors mentioned in the IPO document include the fast pace of the technology business, the possibility of negative publicity and faults in the company’s privacy policy – a repeated source of complaints from users.

“He got a super-sharp haircut, started working out every day, got tan, got a nice suit,” Choe added. “I’m like, ‘This guy’s crazy.'”

Choe said he was there when Thiel invested in Facebook, so knew the company would be able to pay the $60,000 he had asked for.

Bono has been accused in the past of alleged tax avoidance in his native Ireland and was the subject of a protest at Glastonbury last year.

Wealth managers and investment advisers are also looking to win new clients. ‘A lot of them are going to be multimillionaires at 30 and live to be 100,’ said one based in San Ramon, California.

For many of Facebook’s staffers, the IPO will help pay off school loans and buy a house or car. Many homeowners and real-estate agents in California are eagerly anticipating a surge of new buyers.

The imminent flood of Facebook dollars is sure to provide a welcome boost to various local businesses in the Silicon Valley area, from high-end car dealerships to wine merchants.

While weak financial markets downsize IPOs, Facebook seems destined to set a new benchmark in a region famous for minting fortunes, with even the rank-and-file employees reaping millions.

“Most people would have said, ‘Look, you know the odds of anybody really taking off with an internet company,'” Stern said in his interview with Choe. “Most of these companies come and go all the time, especially back then. So, you must have been half out of your mind to turn down the $60,000.”

The company is also, perhaps surprisingly, concerned too many users will adopt Facebook apps for smartphones and other mobile devices – because the apps do not carry advertising, and therefore do not bring in revenue for the site.

But Choe said it was his faith in Parker that convinced him to take the stock.

Despite owning no more than a quarter of shares, he will control 57 per cent of votes even after the sale of shares to the public.

In its regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Facebook said it hopes to raise $5billion in its IPO – a new record for a tech company, surpassing Google’s $1.9billion IPO in 2004.

The company hopes to list its stock under the ticker symbol ‘FB’ on the New York Stock Exchange or Nasdaq Stock Market.

‘We often talk about inventions like the printing press and the television – by simply making communication more efficient, they led to a complete transformation of many important parts of society.

But the company faces the risk that talented staff will leave with their newfound wealth to make their own mark in technology by becoming entrepreneurs or investing in other promising start-ups.

Although Mr Choe reportedly considered the idea of Facebook ‘ridiculous and pointless’ at the time of his painting, he took the stock when offered the option, reported the New York Times.

Sean Parker persuaded artist David Choe to take stock instead of cash for painting the walls of Facebook’s first office. Now that stock is worth $200 million.

The filing makes it clear that China, where Facebook is currently banned, is the next big target – but expresses doubt that it can craft a censorship policy which would be ‘acceptable to us and to the Chinese government’.

Now, after a blockbuster $5billion Facebook stock exchange flotation moved a step closer last night, he is one of at least 1,000 company employees finally on their way to becoming millionaires.

‘Facebook aspires to build the services that give people the power to share and help them once again transform many of our core institutions and industries’

While it may seem that everyone in the English-speaking world has a Facebook account, in fact the site has only penetrated 60 per cent of the market in the U.S. and the UK, and is most popular in Chile, Turkey and Venezuela.

Choe had been charging more and more for his work, but having just come out of prison, he was broke. So he asked Facebook for $60,000 to decorate the whole building. Instead he walked away with stock — and no guarantees Facebook would amount to anything.

‘In reality, hacking just means building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done’

So when Facebook’s first office needed decorating, Parker called on Choe.

According to another former Facebook employee, it was not unusual for the company to offer some executive-level hires up to 100,000 restricted shares as recently as three years ago.

But he will not prove much of a burden to the company financially – his salary, which was $500,000 in 2011, is set to drop to just $1 next year.

Other work: Mr Choe also did the cover art for Jay-Z and Linkin Park’s hit 2004 music album Collision Course, left, and even created a poster of President Barack Obama that reportedly hangs in the White House, right

The company’s filing even singled out Mr Zuckerberg’s control as a major risk which could jeopardise the company’s performance in future – it pointed out that he was able to vote ‘in his own interests, which may not always be in the interests of our stockholders generally’.

In 2005, Mr. Choe was invited to paint murals on the walls of Facebook’s first offices in Palo Alto, Calif., by Sean Parker, then Facebook’s president. As pay, Mr. Parker offered Mr. Choe a choice between cash in the “thousands of dollars,” according to several people who know Mr. Choe, or stock then worth about the same.

Mr Zuckerberg also pledged to stay true to Facebook’s scrappy roots even on the road to becoming a multinational corporation.

David Choe, 35, was asked to paint the offices in Palo Alto, California, in 2005, and was offered the choice by then-president Sean Parker of being paid a few thousand cash or the equivalent in shares.

Already billionaires: Former Facebook president Sean Parker, 31, right, is worth $2.1billion and owns 4 per cent of Facebook; while co-founder of Facebook Eduardo Saverin, 29, left, is worth only slightly less at $2billion

This is how empowering growth for fintechs will make all of our lives easier

Eduardo Saverin Age: 29 Net worth: $2billion Most recently held a 5 per cent stake in Facebook, previously worth $1.1billion, which he has since sold more than half of to invest in new start-ups. ROLE: Co-founder of Facebook

Mr. Choe, who has said that at the time that he thought the idea of Facebook was “ridiculous and pointless,” nevertheless chose the stock.

TOM UTLEY: At last, a genuine medical condition that explains why I never listen to a word my wife says

Parker, this “skinny, nerdy kid,” told Choe he was going to raise money for Facebook.

If Facebook is eventually valued at $100billion, as most analysts believe, that would make his share worth $1billion.

Liquidnet head of private trading Lou Kerner estimates that Facebook now has roughly 2.5billion shares outstanding, which would translate to a per-share price of $40 at a $100billion valuation.

This is some turnaround for a firm which, as its founder explained in a letter with the filing, ‘was not originally created to be a company’, and still uses ‘The Hacker Way’ to guide its development.

But the wealth will trickle down to engineers, salespeople and other staffers who later joined the company, since most employees receive salary plus some kind of equity-based compensation.

Meanwhile the new Facebook millionaires may decide to donate some of their winnings to charities and non-profitable organisations, with many California-based and national groups set to benefit.

Geniuses: Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Sean Parker are pictured in front of the graffiti by Mr Choe at Facebook’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California, in May 2005

‘The word “hacker” has an unfairly negative connotation from being portrayed in the media as people who break into computers,’ he wrote. ‘In reality, hacking just means building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done.’

‘There’s been discussions of sort of bucket list ideas that people are putting together of things they always wanted to do and now we’ll be able to do it,’ said one ex-employee who joined in 2005.

In a letter included in the filing, Mr Zuckerberg painted a rosy, idealistic picture of Facebook.

He is unlikely to miss his salary, however, as Forbes magazine estimated Mr Zuckerberg’s wealth at $17.5billion in its most recent survey of the richest people in the U.S.

Build Social ValueOnce again, Facebook exists to make the world more open and connected, and not just to build a company. We expect everyone at Facebook to focus every day on how to build real value for the world in everything they do.

If then-President of Facebook Sean Parker had come to you in 2005, asked you to paint his new offices with a bunch of cocks, and then offered to pay you in either a few thousand dollars in cold hard cash or just the equivalent in company stock, you would probably have gone for the cash, right? Particularly if the company seemed on the whole sort of “pointless” to you, as it did to so many of us around then even though we were already becoming addicted to it? Fortunately for the painter, wild child graffiti artist David Choe, he picked the stock, which the New York Times points out is now about to be worth $200 million:

This exchange happened back in 2005, when Facebook was just a startup. According to an interview Choe had with Howard Stern in 2014, Parker — the founding president of Facebook — had been a fan of Choe’s work for some time.

And despite the runaway growth of Facebook since its origins in 2004, amazing power remains concentrated in the hands of one man: Mr Zuckerberg.

Mr Choe, of Los Angeles, California, recently went to the new Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park to spray paint a wall, and can be seen in a video getting the help of founder Mark Zuckerberg, 27.

He also did the cover art for Jay-Z and Linkin Park’s hit 2004 music album Collision Course and even created a poster of President Barack Obama for the White House, reported the New York Times.

Advertising accounted for 85 per cent of that revenue, but that was less than in previous years thanks to the spectacular success of games company Zynga, which contributed 12 per cent of Facebook’s revenue through royalties which amount to 30 per cent of the money spent on Zynga’s games via Facebook.
