"Wall Street: The big chill" (Special Report, Oct. 22, 2001)
Beachfire Inc., a collaborative negotiation software company, is still privately owned and based in Boston ("Wall Street: The big chill," Special Report, Oct. 22). Chairman Ben Coes is not "bitter" about advice from investment bankers to take Beachfire public last year: He considered it premature. The contents page entry for the Barker Portfolio (Oct. 29) should have listed Rappaport and Mauboussin as authors of Expectations Investing--not Bernstein and Leibowitz, who merely endorsed the book. In "Selling Furniture and Tolerance" (People, Oct. 22) about Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. CEO M. Farooq Kathwari, the name of Kathwari's late son should have been Irfan. BusinessWeek apologizes for the error.
