"100 Best Global Brands" (Cover Story, Sept. 26)
"100 Best Global Brands" (Cover Story, Sept. 26) gave incorrect data for Samsung's brand value. It is $17.5 billion in 2009, down 1% from $17.6 billion in 2008. The ranking also omitted a minus sign in the percent-change column for Citi's brand value, which slipped 49%. A photo caption with another article in the package, "Panasonic Puts Its Chips on 3D TV," mistakenly identified Yoshi Yamada as Panasonic's CEO. He is CEO of North American operations. Fumio Ohtsubo heads global operations.
