Apple Computer Inc. NASDAQ (AAPL) - 8-K Filing

Oh what a kill joy - those nasty FS restatements. AAPL trades down 5% in AH.

Apple Computer Announces Update Regarding Stock Option Grants (69.59 +1.43) -Update : Co previously announced, an internal investigation discovered irregularities related to the issuance of certain stock option grants made between 1997 and 2001. A special committee of Apple's outside directors has hired independent counsel to perform an investigation, and the Co has informed the SEC. As a result of the ongoing investigation, the Company will delay the filing of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended July 1, 2006. Although the investigation is ongoing, the Co has discovered additional evidence of irregularities. In light of this, management has concluded, and the audit committee of the board of directors agrees, that the Co will likely need to restate its historical financial statements to record non-cash charges for compensation expense relating to past stock option grants. The Co has not determined the amount of such charges, the resulting tax and accounting impact, or which periods may require restatement. Accordingly, the Co today filed a Form 8-K stating that the financial statements and all earnings and press releases and similar communications issued by the Co relating to periods commencing on September 29, 2002 should therefore not be relied upon.
