LinkedIn’s Largest Shareholders And How Much They Own

January 27th, 2011 01:16 admin Leave a comment Go to comments


LinkedIn’s S-1 filing was released today, and the filing includes a wealth of information that we’ve never seen before. This includes sales, profit, revenue breakdown and more. One interesting data point shared in the filing is LinkedIn’s largest shareholders and how much each shareholder owns.

Out of the 5 percent stockholders, the company’s largest shareholder is LinkedIn’s founder and chairman Reid Hoffman and his wife Michelle Yee, owning 19 million shares or 21.4 percent of the company. He’s followed by Sequoia Capital (16.8 million shares or 18.9 percent), Greylock Partners (14 million shares or 15.8 percent) and Bessemer Venture Partners (4.6 million shares or 5.1 percent).

Seqouia was LinkedIn’s earliest investor in 2003, followed by Greylock in 2004. Bessemer participated in LinkedIn’s three later rounds in 2007 and 2008.

Among the executive officers and directors, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner holds 3.8 million shares, or 4.1 percent of the company, CFO Steven Sordello owns 1 million shares or 1.1 percent of the company, and VP of Product Deep Nishar owns 970,000 shares or 1.1 percent of the company.

Since we don’t know the offering price, it’s difficult to know the dollar value of each party’s shares.
