Henry Nicholas isn’t just another tech-boom billionaire charged with backdating stock options. She grew up in Los Angeles, and people who know her describe her as “very nice”—the same words people use to describe Henry Samueli. She seemed innocent and demure—one friend described her as “super naïve”—and was athletic enough to keep up with Nicholas on long bike rides. In 1993, the couple’s first son, Brett, was born, followed by a second son, Matthew, and in 1998, a daughter, Shelby.
All the drive, arrogance, and aggression he poured into building microchip-maker Broadcom—one of the major success stories of the Internet Age—morphed into an increasing obsession with sex and drugs, according to federal prosecutors. Leach was a screenwriter and teacher who was best known for his scripts for the television series But the obituaries also prominently mentioned the fact that Leach’s stepson was Henry Nicholas, the 49-year-old co-founder of a staggeringly successful semiconductor company called Broadcom. In 1988, Samueli began to consult part-time for another start-up company, Pair Gain Technologies.
The process of granting an option that is dated prior to the date that the company granted that option.

Nicholas never talks about Marsalee’s murder, even to close friends, but over the years he has devoted time and considerable money to the cause. He based the company not in Silicon Valley, where everyone else was, but in Orange County, the sun-drenched suburban sprawl just south of Los Angeles.According to the government, the company’s former chief financial officer, Bill Ruehle, who was also indicted, had referred to the scheme as the “golden goose,” and, indeed, for years this practice served to wildly inflate the profits Broadcom reported to the public. Henry Nicholas met Henry Samueli in the early 1980s when the two men were working at a defense contractor called TRW. At a time when dress codes were ostentatiously casual, Nicholas wore three-piece suits—and insisted that others at Broadcom suit up as well. circles, group people into 16 different personality types, to which Keirsey gives labels, such as the Healer and the Inspector; Masterminds make up just 1 percent of the population.)
