Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ US$4.6 billion worth of shares in The Walt Disney Co. are now in a trust run by his wife, Laurene Powell Jobs. That’s according to a securities filing made Wednesday, as reported by “Yahoo! Finance” (http://macte.ch/1iDOY).
Jobs acquired the 138 million shares when Disney bought his Pixar Animation Studios for $7.4 billion in 2006. With a 7.7 % stake, Jobs’ trust is Disney’s largest single shareholder.
