Very good day at the office for Mark Zuckerberg. He made $3 billion.
With the Facebook’s stock rising 16 % to an all-time high over $61 on Thursday, social networking company’s founder and CEO’s wealth also shot up by more than $3 billion to $29.7 billion, according to the Wealth-X.
That is up from net worth of $20 billion that he hit at the Facebook’s IPO in May 2012. And his net worth has almost tripled since those dark days of the Facebook’s post-IPO depression last year, when Zuckerberg was down to his last $10 billion.
