Zynga’s Shares Will Cost Slightly More in Its Secondary Than IPO

Zynga said tonight that shares in its secondary offering will cost $12 apiece. It is unloading nearly 43 million shares, all coming from existing shareholders.

The reason for the offering is to increase the number of shares available, and to assist in the “orderly distribution of shares.”
