By Hayley Tsukayama,
There were few surprises in the list of shareholders released in Facebook’s S-1 filing. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, unsurprisingly, topped the list of the biggest shareholders. Zuckerberg has 56.9 percent of the voting shares, followed by Accel Partners with 11.4 percent, James Breyer with 11.4 percent, co-founder Dustin Moskovitz with 7.6 percent, DST Global with 5.5 percent and entrepreneur Peter Thiel with 2.4 percent.
The company’s board of directors — including Washington Post Co. Chairman and Chief Executive Don Graham — were also listed as stakeholders. Prominent names on the board including Graham, Marc Andreessen, Erskine Bowles, Reed Hastings all have less than 1 percent.
Goldman Sachs and T. Rowe Price also hold less than 1 percent of shares, as do chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, chief financial officer David Ebersman, vice president of engineering Mike Schroepfer, and general counsel Theodore Ullyot.
