The article reports on the decision of M-Systems to postpone its stock offering. The company postponed the offering because it has launched an investigation into its stock option granting practices, like several other companies in the semiconductor industry. The firm announced plans to offer 8.7 million of its ordinary shares in a public offering on May 25, 2006. The company experienced a decline in share price in pre-market trading following the announcement.
