Cashing In - Oak Brook Style

Between January 29th and February 8th six officers of McDonald's Corporation sold over 47,400 shares of McDonald's for a total value of over $4,400,000.00.

This was not all profit as most of the transactions involved the exercise of stock options and 

as yet the option purchase price is not reported on all transactions. A good estimate would 
be the option purchase price was $35.00 to $40.00 a share. The average share price at the 
time of exercise and sale was about $93.00.

Don Thompson was the big winner exercising his option on 25,299 shares at $32.60 a share 

and immediately selling them at $92.66. for a profit over $1.5 million.

Maybe Don's going to buy a McDonald's franchise?

Maybe Don should have waited for the news of his departure to be announced and the share price jumped 5%

No, he couldn't have played it any better. The news of his retirement was released the evening of the 28th and he did his trade on the 29th when shares jumped more than $4.00. Shares have drifted up a few bucks since then but who knew that was going to happen?

He saw the brass ring he'd created himself and grabbed it.

I'd love to see a former mcd ceo try to make it in the McDonald's franchise environment he helped create.

I would love for us to speak with the same voice, as operators. To many times we say things privately and then we don't hold our ground in public. Time for us to come together and speak with a collective voice.

This has been done over the years. Like in Atl in the 70's and under the Leadership of Reggie Webb in 2001. Let us come together for equity sake.
