Austin Craun and Greg Schonert may be looking outside the healthcare industry. Rumor mill has Black River Capital interested in the boys. Both had REIT experience prior to Essent, so it isn't too great a stretch...is it?
Zurich American Insurance has been looking at our Northeastern brethern.
Partners Healthcare Systems Inc and one other has been checking out Dr. Rimas Maurukas. Is he looking for a new affiliation? One would hope that they would be a bit wary, as the investigative process hasn't ended.
I have no idea why so many folks from so many countries are searching for the same string of items: "Paris Essent Hud". But, I've had hits from Estonia, Iran, Vietnam, Korea, USSR, and a great number from the 'west' as well. Someone must be passing around an email that has to be titilating.
Oh, and Vestar Capital has been checking us out. That probably means that Essent burns the midnight oil trying to do a risk analysis...hey guys, it's all at risk!
