Getty Images is the subject of two shareholder lawsuits related to past stock-options grant practices, the stock photo company said in a regulatory filing Friday.

Getty Images Inc. is one of 203 companies that have launched internal probes or are under federal scrutiny for a practice known as backdating. Other companies have acknowledged that executives recorded bogus dates when stock options were granted, picking a day when the stock price was low to boost profit when the options holder cashes in.
