Zynga offers stock options in attempt to retain employees – rumour

Friday, 10 August 2012 07:05 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Bloomberg is citing an informed source for word that Zynga has handed over stock options to its entire workforce. Analysts view the move as an attempt to keep employees on board after a stock crash devalued their existing options; the social publisher’s trade price plummeted following another negative quarterly financial report. Zynga is in a troubled position at the moment, having lost its COO in the middle of a copyright infringement lawsuit initiated by EA.
