If EXDS the company is in trouble and not just the stock EXDS, then why didn't they entertain Cable & Wireless overtures a few weeks ago.

Anybody have any thoughts on how this might eventually play out? Will GX get involved at some point?

This thread can be accessed by a new SI participant by choosing "Stock Talk" and entering GBLX, the old symbol. Idiosynchratic, but not impossible.

GX Venture Capital named in top 25....FWIW.
But then again, involvement with Global Crossing has been as close to a VC as I ever hope to be again...<g>...

Emile, I too had the question of whether Winnick was simply being sly about selling without appearing to be selling.

I do not believe, however, that Winnick could stay sufficiently clean during the Leveraged Buyout Era with Drexel Burnham to remain out of the slammer, and then go do something patently absurd such as this. I believe you are correct in principal, i.e. he wanted the cash somewhere other than in GX for a spell, but I believe whatever he did would be legal. Not that being legal makes something right, just that he is not that naive.

comment about and it also has a huge interest in Global Crossing, which may need additional capital in the next six months.
Yeah, I saw that and the only sentence which stuck out like an elbow is the one you bolded (above). Just because we both see the same inuendo does not make us both paranoid, it only means we are alert. Ask Andy Grove.

I believe the idea of battling another company's shareholders would be adequate to turn Winnick away...he has his own shareholders to worry about, right Fez?<g>

Thanks Gruetz, I remember when Qwest decided to begin selling all their holdings in GX which they somehow acquired during the GX//FRO//USWest vs Qwest//FRO//USWest fray....I believe it has been about a year since then, or more, and they are continuing to sell?

Frank,

Thanks for the recent history since the 1970s, but the original post said SPrint dated to 1899.

That's what I was wondering about.

Well, it couldn't be Southern Pacific RailRoad, which was founded in 1865:

trainweb.org

Sprint is only the latest name of a series of successors since 1899. I recall them as United Telecom prior to Sprint, circa 1972, which was prior to the account that I gave upstream. Sorry, I don't recall Farmer Brown, though.

This is from their web site, showing the lineage from 1899:

Sprint History....OT

Now that I think about it, Sprint merged with GTE several years ago. GTE was known as General Telephone back in 1969 as I worked for them for a time and remember the name and logo on the truck. General Telephone was the local telephone service provider for many smaller towns throughout the midwest and for large cities in Florida and California back then.

I believe General Telephone was the 2nd largest local provider in the US after Bell Telephone. Not sure how long prior to the that the General Telephone name was used but they may have been something else for years and then merged with another company to become General Tel.

United was also a local Telephone provider around the midwest in the seventies but had no affiliation with General Telephone.
