imageDigital Sky Technologies London partner Alexander Tamas and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg (pictured, right) met with a steady stream of reporters Tuesday afternoon, explaining why a company with lots of money wanted such a small stake in Facebook — and why a company that says it needs no money took a new $200 million investment. Tucked away in an alcove at the Four Seasons in Carlsbad, Calif., (with the Washington Post (NYSE: WPO) Co.’s Donald Graham, a Facebook board member, sitting in but not participating), the three of us talked about international plans, acquisitions — none planned, says Sandberg, and, among other things, the obsession with IPOs.

Robert adds: Digital Sky Technologies has stakes in Odnoklassniki.ru, Nasza-Klasa.pl, Vkontakte.ru and top portal Mail.ru. Arsenal football club majority owner Alisher Usmanov bought another two percent of DST this week, taking his stake up to 32 percent.
