Item 8.01 Other Events.
On Tuesday, April 24, 2007, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) issued a press release announcing that the Commission has filed a civil action against two former officers of Apple Inc. (Apple) in connection with past stock option grants. According to the press release, in connection with the filing of the complaints, the Commission announced that it would not bring an enforcement action against Apple. In its press release, the Commission stated: The Commission also announced today that it would not bring any enforcement action against Apple based in part on its swift, extensive, and extraordinary cooperation in the Commissions investigation. Apples cooperation consisted of, among other things, prompt self-reporting, an independent internal investigation, the sharing of the results of that investigation with the government, and the implementation of new controls designed to prevent the recurrence of fraudulent conduct.
The full text of the press release issued by the Commission is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
