Facebook revamped its stock structure today in a move sure to heat up speculation that it's going public. The company will have two classes of shares, A and B, reports the Wall Street Journal. Everyone currently on board will hold B shares, with 10 times the voting power of A shares. That way if Facebook goes public, current shareholders—especially CEO Mark Zuckerberg—will have more say than any newcomers.
The company says it made the move because "existing shareholders wanted to maintain control over voting on certain issues to help ensure the company can continue to focus on the long-term to build a great business." But it warned that "this revision to the stock structure should not be construed as a signal the company is planning to go public. Facebook has no plans to go public at this time."
