I just read this today and does anyone know what type of stock options scandal they are mentioning?
NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Bookseller Barnes & Noble Inc. said Tuesday it has received a subpoena from the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, requesting documents regarding stock option practices.
Barnes & Noble has become one of more than 80 companies to say it is being investigated in a quickly spreading scandal over stock options.
The operator of the bookstore chain said it received the subpoena Friday, making the statement in a brief regulatory filing. It had previously announced it was reviewing stock option practices and said the Securities and Exchange Commission is conducting an informal inquiry with respect to them.
Barnes & Noble (Charts) said it is cooperating fully with the SEC and intends to cooperate fully in responding to the subpoena.
