You David E*Trade just named as underwriter.
And I'm curious now because this gives our clients more access the average retail investor.
Is this a sign that this IPO is gonna be different than other IP us.
I would tend to think it's not going to be very different as far as your allocation process even though there are just boards.

Maybe 5% of their position as FaceBook.
