On February 5, 1999, Mr. Chambers execised 900,000 options at $7.39, for a
total cost to him of $6,651,000. The same day he sold 850,000 of his new
found shares at $102.64, gaining him $87,244,000.
Total for the day: $80,593,000
Even with various governments taking their shares, he still cleared well
over $40 mil after tax, in one day.
So, a toast to John T. Chambers, and his new found wealth.
How *do* you celebrate a day like that?
