Ann Mather, who worked as chief financial officer of Pixar Animation Studios before then-chief executive Jobs dealt Pixar to Walt Disney Co.
The move came almost exactly a year after the SEC filed similar charges against former Apple CFO Fred Anderson and former general counsel Nancy Heinen.
(who broke the backdating story), Jobs had an award of 7.5 million shares approved at Apple’s August 29 board meeting, at which point Apple’s share price was $17.83.
However, because he continued to argue over the point at which they would vest, Apple missed the deadlines it needed to file the right information with the SEC and its auditors.
(Full deposition embedded below) Jobs explains his reasoning for why he asked the board for mega grants of options for both himself and his top executives, but claims ignorance of the mechanics of how that was done after the board approved the grants themselves.
