CNET says SEC ends stock investigation

Business Law

CNET Networks said Tuesday that the Securities and Exchange Commission ended an inquiry into the company's stock option grants.

Regulators won't take any action against San Francisco-based CNET, which is a media company.

CNET's founder Shelby Bonnie quit as chairman and CEO last October -- on the same day the company said it had back dated some stock options grants between its 1996 IPO and 2003.

The costs of the ensuing stock options investigation and related litigation cost CNET Networks $2.9 million in the second quarter, ended June 30, and pushed it to a $76,000 loss.

CNET's loss would have been greater but for a $1.6 million gain on private investments, which partially offset the costs of its stock options investigation.

Neil Ashe, Bonnie's replacement as CEO, said it was a "transition year" for his company.

Illinois Work Injury Lawyers – Krol, Bongiorno & Given, LTD.

Accidents in the workplace are often caused by unsafe work conditions arising from ignoring safety rules, overlooking maintenance or other negligence of those in management. While we are one of the largest firms in Illinois dedicated solely to the representation of injured workers, we pride ourselves on the personal, one-on-one approach we deliver to each client.

Work accidents can cause serious injuries and sometimes permanent damage. Some extremely serious work injuries can permanently hinder a person’s ability to get around and continue their daily duties. Factors that affect one’s quality of life such as place of work, relationships with friends and family, and social standing can all be taken away quickly by a work injury. Although, you may not be able to recover all of your losses, you may be entitled to compensation as a result of your work injury. Krol, Bongiorno & Given, LTD. provides informed advocacy in all kinds of workers’ compensation claims, including:

• Injuries to the back and neck, including severe spinal cord injuries
• Serious head injuries
• Heart problems resulting from workplace activities
• Injuries to the knees, elbows, shoulders and other joints
• Injuries caused by repetitive movements

For Illinois Workers’ Compensation claims, you will ALWAYS cheat yourself if you do not hire an experienced attorney. When you hire Krol, Bongiorno & Given, Ltd, you will have someone to guide you through the process, and when it is time to settle, we will add value to your case IN EXCESS of our fee. In the last few years, employers and insurance carriers have sought to advance the argument that when you settle a case without an attorney, your already low settlement should be further reduced by 20% so that you do not get a “windfall.” Representing yourself in Illinois is a lose-lose proposition.
