June 7 story,

Options' Deluding Effect, incorrectly reported that


(YHOO:Nasdaq) employees gained about $2.17 billion in 2005 from selling stock options, and that the company would have generated an extra $2 billion if it had sold those shares publicly instead of to employees. Those figures were based on data that included options exercises from 2005 as well as previous years, according to a company representative. In fact, a more accurate estimate of employees' gains via option sales in 2005 is about $1.1 billion. Using similar methodology -- and then subtracting Yahoo!'s tax benefit from stock options -- a better estimate of how much the company would have seen from selling those shares directly to the public at market price is about $710 million.
