So I guess you think I'm just making it all up then?!
"Gates' shares were worth approximately $13.2 billion as of Friday*, or 17% of his estimated $78.1 billion net worth, as calculated by Bloomberg. That amount made Gates the world's richest individual.
At his 10-year pace of selling stock, Gates will hand over the shareholding crown to Ballmer before mid-2014.** Gates will have exhausted his holdings by September 2018 unless he stops or slows his selling."´
So if I'm guilty of anything its my crappy memory for stating that it was early 2018, and not mid-late 2018... So SUE ME!
* As of the time of writing the it was the Fourth of January 2014...
** Already happened!
