hate to clutter up board with note that should be Email. But
address to Valuemonger was returned, so if I want to thank him
I have no option except this board. If you read this, there
is no disrespect intended for lawyers or accounts, but you do tend
to be a little wordy.

ValueMonger:

Thanks for the answers I was looking for.

"The total effect in both actuallity and the accounting, in the past, was a transfering of ownership from the stockholders to the option
recepients."

I read your profile and saw that you attended West Point.

In my far distance background is a little service in the Army. I rose to the lofty rank of corporal and defended Fort Benning during the Korean War.

Your reply was simple and direct. A rare find in the world of lawyers,
governments, accountants, and a whole lot of women I have known.

The reason for bringing up the military is that West Point
produced people that were excellent at giving simple direct answers.
I suspect that is the background of your reply.

Thanks again gym0
