Request for a third opinion[edit]

Hey. I saw your request for a third opinion was removed from the 3O page. This was done for a number of reasons. You need to follow the conventions listed on the page. First, the statement given on the page must be clear, concise, and most importantly, neutral. Also, sign using five tildes (~~~~~) so only the date and time show up, which helps to maintain anonymity. Think about what you want help on, and then repost your request.

Can you help supply information for the UST Global article?[edit]

There is a Business Week article which states that the president of UST Global is (or was) Stephen Ross. If you are he, you might be able to help us find sources for the article. At present the company is rather hard to document from American publications, though it seems there are some Indian news articles (not always easy to get hold of). If you can help, please reply, either here, on at User talk:EdJohnston. I assume that there must have been a series of predecessor companies that were gradually combined or renamed, but the company's own website is rather vague on this point.

It seems that you and another editor have been disagreeing over the contents of this article. The issue can easily be solved if references can be found, either online or in paper publications, that would settle things one way or the other. As you can understand, reference to the company's own records isn't very helpful to us here, since we don't have access to them. But such a large company should have had coverage in the media.

Dear Ed,

Thank you for your invitation to join the discussion at: WP:COIN#UST Global.

To your earlier question, I am the founder of the company, the first President, later the CEO, and retired in Sept. of 2004 from the company. I am happy to provide you any assistance possible. From 1998, the company has always been "US Technology Resources, L.L.C." organized in California. It owns subsid. companies in the other countries in which it operates. The name, "UST Global" is a D.B.A. name only (Doing Business As). This means that the company's official name is US Technology Resources, L.L.C., yet they are marketing the company as UST Global for now.

For the early days of the company, there were not online articles or newspaper articles.

Please let me know how I can help further.

Sincerely,

Steve Ross Stevejross 15:05, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

  1. Can you tell us what the correct founding date of UST Global is? Should it be 1998 or 1999?
  2. Should it be considered an American or an Indian company?
  3. Is the American part incorporated under the laws of California?
  4. If it is privately held, is anything known publicly about who the owners of the company are?
  5. Is the Business Week article correct, so far as you know?

Thanks, EdJohnston 15:19, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Dear Ed:

  • California records show the company was recognized as an L.L.C. in October of 1998.
  • As of July of 2007, the company was still a California L.L.C.
  • The above California records show the company as incorporated under the laws of California.
  • The below public internet forum talks about the owner of the company (Tricase Holding SA). As these 2 articles show, Magnecomp invested in UST, Tricase invested in UST, later Magnecomp disposed of its holding.

[1] [2]

  • The BW article is mainly put together from input provided by employees of the company. I submitted a change request yesterday to BusinessWeek to reflect the company founding date as 1998 (not 1999) and to show me as retired. Except for the news stories which BW reposts from the Internet, this site is probably less accurate that Wikipedia as it gets its information primarily from UST employees and Hoovers (which again gets its information from UST employees)

Please let me know if I can answer any further questions as I also want to see the facts regarding this company presented as accurately as possible.

Sincerely,

Steve Ross Stevejross 15:53, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

I responded to your request a few days ago, but have not received a response. If the issue is still active, please respond at EAR so that I can advise you. Thanks. Adrian M. H. 13:38, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

- - Dear Adrian,

Thank you for your help and assistance. It appears that this is resolved for now (and we will watch closely the future edits from the 2 users).

Again, Thank You.

Sincerely,

Steve Ross Stevejross 15:56, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks very much for the feedback, Steve. Glad you got it sorted out. Adrian M. H. 16:50, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Founding of UST Global[edit]

Hello Steve. Please see my response to your question over at User_talk:EdJohnston#Founder post - UST Global. EdJohnston 18:29, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

UST Global again[edit]

Hello Steve, and thanks for your comment on my User talk. I'm not opposed to adding a link to the arbitration case ruling to the UST Global article. However the link you provided just shows that you won the case, and it doesn't actually recognize you as the founder of UST Global. It just speaks about 'payment of fair value for his founding interest in the company.' Is there a statement that you were the founder that can be viewed online? Also, it would be better to give a link to an actual court document. The link you provide is to a page hosted at a law firm. We assume they are not neutral in the case, since they represented one of the parties. If we link only to that page, we are relying on their paraphrase of what the arbitration ruling actually was.
