Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s love of “high-risk activities” pose a “risk of serious injury and death,” the company warned investors in its latest Securities and Exchange Commission filing.
The warning was included for the first time under “risk factors” in Meta’s 10-K filing — a comprehensive report on the tech behemoth’s activities throughout 2023 — though the 39-year-old enjoys dangerous hobbies that include hydrofoiling and mixed martial arts.
HIs passion for hand-to-hand combat led to Zuckerberg suffering a torn ACL while training last November.
He posted of photo to Instagram showing him in a hospital bed with his left leg bandaged and in a supportive leg brace.
Zuckerberg picked up Brazilian jiujitsu during the pandemic and has shared photos of his ripped physique during training sessions. He won gold and silver medals at a Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament back last May.
The Facebook founder also is an avid surfer, though his form has been fodder for internet users, who have ridiculed the billionaire for posting a video of himself foiling across a lake while holding an American flag set to the tune of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” in honor of Independence Day.
Zuckerberg has also reportedly been working toward getting a pilot’s license.
According to Federal Aviation Administration records, the father-of-three obtained his student pilot certificate last year.
Meta’s latest SEC filing appeared to suggest that Zuckerberg completed the course to becoming a certified pilot, listing his dangerous pastimes as “combat sports, extreme sports and recreational aviation.”
The 10-K filing also warns that if something goes horribly wrong while Zuckerberg is either surfing, sparring or flying, “there could be a material adverse impact on our [Meta’s] operations.”
“We currently depend on the continued services and performance of our key personnel, including Mark Zuckerberg,” the filing added.
This type of warning was not included in Meta’s 2022 10-K filing, and is not something usually included.
It’s unclear why the Menlo Park, Calif.-based firm decided to add the warning to its latest 10-K, which was earlier reported on by Business Insider.
Representatives for Meta did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
