Should an ISO sale be reported as wages on form W-2?

I am working with a client that exercised ISO’s 2 1/2 years after the grant date and performed a sale of those options on the same day. The gain on the sale is being reported on his W-2 as wages and considered a disqualifying transaction. Is that correct?
Yes. Look at Internal Revenue Code Section 422.
