the business day immediately following the Effective Time of the Merger each
Dow Jones & Company, Inc. contract will be adjusted to require, upon
exercise, the per-contract delivery or receipt of $6,000.00 in cash. Strike
prices will remain the same, and the DJ/OSB/KKY option symbols will remain
the same. If the Merger is, in fact, completed on December 13, then the Dow
Jones & Company, Inc. contract adjustment would be effective for Friday,
December 14, 2007. [Any FLEX series that may exist will be adjusted in a
similar manner to the standardized option.]
Please be aware that trading in the adjusted DJ/OSB/KKY options will be
suspended as of the date on which the option contract is adjusted. There
will be no restrictions on the exercise of the adjusted DJ/OSB/KKY options."

Unfortunately for you, a buyout for $60 per share makes an option with a strike price of $60 per share worthless.
