From the minute I saw the ‘Steve Jobs had a liver transplant story’ my spidy senses were telling me this was some form of too convenient disclosure BS from Apple. Regarding Jobs health (and therefore, what else?) I believe Apple plays fast and loose with governance rules on disclosure. And gets away with it. What’s happening with CEO’s of public companies is material. Anyone who argues these are private matters is missing both the importance of the CEO role (could Jobs be any more important?) and the transparency obligations associated with being ‘public’.
