7-9 BIIIIIIIIIILLLLIIIIOOOOON!!!!

Zynga’s recent funding round indicates a valuation of approximately 7-9 Billion dollars. Articles and analysis from:

Benzinga ” Zynga, the developer behind the popular CityVille and other online social games, is reportedly in talks with investors about a round of funding worth $250 million that could value the company between $7 billion and $9 billion. ”

The Wall Street Journal ” The huge audience for its games—Zynga has a total of 275 million active monthly users across all its titles—helped Zynga generate about $400 million in profit last year on approximately $850 million in revenue, said another person familiar with its finances. “

VentureBeat ” Zynga doesn’t need a lot of money for operations, but it has been buying about one company a month to acquire new developer talent so that it can keep making better and better games. To date, Zynga has raised $360 million from investors, not counting a rumored Google investment that was never announced. “

VatorNews ” Zynga is widely considered the most successful developer on the Facebook platform, with four titles to its name in the top ten: Cityville, FarmVille, Texas HoldEm Poker and FrontierVille. CityVille alone draws 96.3 million monthly active users. In total, the company serves 275 million monthly active users. ”

  1. What I like about Zynga is their innovative way of advertising their games. I have been a poker player too for quite some time now.
