Zynga gets one more SEC request

December 13, 2011, 12:13 AM UTC

Social gaming company Zynga on Friday issued an amended registration statement for its initial public offering, which is expected to price sometime this week.

One of the only substantive changes I see is the addition of three names on page 136: James Davidson, Glenn Hutchins and David Roux. These are the three managing members of Silver Lake Partners, which holds a 4.1% ownership stake in Zynga.

Silver Lake’s shares had been disclosed on all of Zynga’s prior IPO-related filings, but I’m told that the SEC also wanted the private equity firm’s principals to be explicitly identified (Zynga already had done so for other significant shareholders, in part through board representation). I guess it’s important to be comprehensive, but doesn’t the SEC have better things to do than make sure a company amends its filing with irrelevant information that anyone can find via a 2-second Google search?
