Do we wonder about the Essent Board of Directors? Who they are, what other companies they're involved with? It does become interesting. I was perusing the Business Week description of the Essent corporate structure (which is way out of date) and found the board members.
David Mayer -Jazz Pharmaceuticals
Ron Wolford -ForHealth Technologies
James Elrod Jr. -Vestar Capital
Bryan Cressey -Thoma Cressey
Steven Silver -GoldToeMoretz
Jeff Goldsmith -Cerner
Bryan Marsal -GoldToeMoretz
One tidbit noticed about Cerner--The CEO and the Board vice-Chairman have sold a net of 55,000 shares within the last three months. How much confidence do they have?
As for Essent--Connery has decided not to pursue the lawsuit against Essent for an early release of the money for his shares.
