Facebook-19-Billion-Acquisition-of-WhatsApp

Facebook today announced its $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp. Obviously WhatsApp has a lot to cheer about, having grown to 450 million active users over the course of the last five years. But from a pure venture perspective, the purchase represents another huge win for Sequoia Capital and partner Jim Goetz.
The deal is the largest acquisition of a venture-backed company in history, which also clearly puts it in the early lead for the biggest single venture return this year.
