Two former senior Apple executives, including a former CFO, are being probed
by US investigators over the company’s options-granting practices.
This follows the
of current management heads, the Wall Street Journal reported today. It
said former CFO
Anderson and former Apple legal counsel and board secretary, Nancy Heinen,
are among those set to be probed.
Anderson joined Apple in 1996, while Heinen was a long-time employee of
Apple chief executive Steve Jobs. Lawyers for both have said their clients had
done nothing wrong.
Apple turned over results of an internal probe to the Justice Department and
and Exchange Commission last week.
In an SEC filing, the company revealed that thousands of options grants
between 1997 and 2002 were improperly dated.
