Apparently, Mark Zuckerberg first informed his Board of Directors that he planned to buy Instagram on the morning of Sunday April 8, only hours before the deal closed. At that point he had been negotiating the deal for a full three days, mostly on his own. Interestingly, the first number thrown out by Instagram founder Kevin Systrom was $2 billion. A series of meetings in Zuckerberg’s bedroom subsequently led to the final terms. A source tells the WSJ that the Board “Was told, not consulted,” although it did completed a largely symbolic vote. This is sure raise some eyebrows on along Wall Street where there is already concern over the young CEO’s substantial control over the company ahead of its projected $100 billion IPO. [Source WSJ]
