118. Global Crossing was there as well
Edited on Thu Jun-29-06 05:11 PM by DrDebug
Global Crossing Limited is a major telecommunications company that provides computer networking services worldwide. The company is legally domiciled in Bermuda. (1)

It rode the dot-com boom of the 1990s to incredibly high market values, only to go bankrupt a few years later. Its stock price hit a high of US $64 per share, and would eventually plunge to below $1. (1)

In January 2002, the company declared chapter 11 bankruptcy, making it the fourth largest insolvency in United States history. The restructuring of Global Crossing was being handled by the Blackstone Group (you know from the WTC/Silverstein deal)

WASHINGTON, March 25 (Reuters) - A senior U.S. Democrat has called for an investigation of Richard Perle, an architect of the war in Iraq, for possible conflicts of interest in his roles as corporate adviser and Pentagon consultant.

Rep. John Conyers, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, asked the Pentagon's inspector general to probe Perle's work as a paid adviser to bankrupt telecommunications company Global Crossing Ltd. and his guidance on investment opportunities resulting from the Iraq conflict.

Much much more stuff at: (I'm starting to love that weird site. It has all the goodies...)

It is very unclear how many worked at WTC, but I think that lots of things from that company got shreded as well that day...

There are many companies with no information in those towers. I wonder how many were virtual companies...
