Zynga Set to Sell 100 Million Shares in Huge IPO

Zynga is trending after the online gaming company filed documents that set their initial public offering at $8.50 to $10 a share, potentially valuing the company at $7 billion.

Zynga, the company behind FarmVille, Mafia Wars, and CityVille, is set to sell 100 million shares, or 14.3 percent of its total, a figure higher than other recent IPOs like LinkedIn and Groupon.
