Offer puts value of at least $6.5B on Facebook

How much is Facebook worth? A Russian investment firm appears to think it's $6.5 billion to $10 billion.
The investment group, Digital Sky, said Monday it will buy up to $100 million worth of Facebook shares from employees. At the price the firm would pay, the Internet company's common shares are worth about $6.5 billion.
In May, Digital Sky bought $200 million worth of preferred shares in Facebook. That valued the company at roughly $10 billion, but those shares are worth more because they come with more rights. Facebook's open-market price would likely fall between the values implied by the preferred and common shares.
Either way Facebook is worth less than $15 billion, which was implied when Microsoft bought a 1.6 percent stake in 2007 for $240 million.
