    Default USIC buys Premier... rumor

    One or both of our new members, wakaa06 and RushFan, posted that USIC had bought premier and then posted that it was confirmed. In my haste to approve these posts (new peoples posts need approval) and delete the existing spam posts I accidentally deleted their posts... sorry.

    I just wanted to make that clear so nobody thought I was stealing posts. Especially news like that, so without further adieu I present the following statements as I read them before I deleted them:

    USIC buys Premier.
    Confirmed, USIC buys Premier.

    All I can say is that I'm reposting these and I know not if it is true.

    Willbros Company is in the final stages of negotiation with USIC for the purchase of Premier Utility Services. The deal is not yet signed, but will probably go through and be announced Friday 3/19.

    Most if not all of the clients / contracts have been notified.

    Any delays in posting the notice are probably due to WG stock Tanking yesterday (down 50% to $1.50 at its lowest) and cutthroat USIC renegotiating the deal because of the change in financial situation.

    The thing that bugs me is the silence after the notification.

    OK so we have been notified. Now what? What's next? When will the new company contact us? Are we keeping our equipment and vehicles and just get a shiny new decal? Will I have a job tomorrow?

    That kind of silence....

    to my knowledge nothing is official yet. if you go to the willBros site it says nothing about premier being sold. Only that it sold off UtilX to Novinum.
