Qwest Communications International Inc. (NYSE: Q) Chairman and CEO Richard C. Notebaert issued the following statement:
“What has happened at Worldcom is unfortunate for our industry, however Qwest is a different company and I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t believe that. I’m confident that Qwest is moving in the right direction and we have the ability to perform for our customers, employees and shareowners. We continue to cooperate fully with the SEC inquiry of our accounting practices and we have met all requests for information. I don’t believe that anything has changed in the way that we are working with the SEC or in the three areas of the original inquiry that we disclosed last March.”
