Qwest Narrows Loss; It Offers to Settle Suits

November 02, 2005|From Associated Press

With a tentative $400-million settlement of a key shareholder lawsuit in hand, Qwest Communications said that it narrowed its margin of loss in the third quarter on the strength of sales and a $52-million government contract.

Chief Executive Richard Notebaert said he hoped the settlement would pave the way for the Denver-based company to resolve a handful of remaining lawsuits stemming from an accounting scandal that forced Qwest to restate billions of dollars in revenue.
