In Thursdays issue, a back-page news brief misinterpreted a remark of Bank One Corp.s chief executive officer, James Dimon.
As reported, Mr. Dimon did say that any acquisition the company considers would have to increase per-share earnings. However, he did not say by how much.
The figure he said he hopes to boost 5% to 12% was not per-share earnings but return on equity in the large corporate banking business and he spoke of that as a general goal, not as a condition for acquisition deals.
In Wednesdays issue, the headline for the table on page 18 should have read Top 150 Bank Holding Companies by Total U.S. Banking Assets. The omission of U.S. suggested that global assets were meant.
