Facebook co-founder renounces citizenship before IPO

MENLO PARK, Calif.

Bloomberg is reporting that a spokesman for 30-year-old Eduardo Saverin said he recently found it more practical to become a resident of Singapore. The move could reduce his tax bill.

Saverin is one of several people who helped Mark Zuckerberg start Facebook in a Harvard University dorm. He has about a four percent stake in the company and could gain nearly $4 billion from Facebook's IPO.
