Facebook just updated their S-1 filling, and if offers some new insight on why it bought Instagram, and it included the structure of the payment.
Facebook paid $300 million in cash for Instagram and 23 million shares of common stock. Facebook has agreed to pay $200 million termination fee to Instagram if the government blocks the deal or if either party terminates the agreement before Dec 20, according to the filling.
