Snap CEO and Co-Founder Could Lose More Than $1 Billion Each After Earnings Report

If prices drop again Thursday, Evan Spiegel could lose more than $1.3 billion in less than 24 hours

Snapchat's poorly-received first earnings report and subsequent drop in stock led CEO Evan Spiegel to lose more than the $750 million he received in a stock bonus for completing his company's initial public offering (IPO) in March, CNBC reported.

The social media app's shares fell $5.35, or 23 percent, Wednesday to $17.66 after the company released its first quarterly financial results as a public company. The drop in price means Snap is just above its IPO price of $17.

If the same price drop happens Thursday, Spiegel will have lost more than $1.3 billion in a period of less than 24 hours. Spiegel's co-founder, Bobby Murphy, will have lost $1.1 billion.

Still, even if shares drop to $17, both men's holdings in the company will remain worth more than $3.5 billion each.
