Applied Underwriters Selling Off Assets

Applied Underwriters is on the market and in the process of being sold. More than a dozen internet addresses that it owns do not appear to be part of that deal. The Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A) subsidiary is looking for a buyer or buyers for 15 different URLs that it has registered over the years.

Many of the URLs are variations on a theme but use a different domain extension such as .com, .net, or .org. There are three variations of “employersinsurance” with each of these domain extensions. There are also multiples versions of “apuw” in an apparent reference to its name, and multiple versions of “commercial-general” and “com-gen.”, and two versions of coverdyn with different domain extensions are also up for sale.

Workers’ Comp Executive broke the news last week that a formal application for the sale of Applied Underwriters is now under review at the California Department of Insurance. The application was not yet complete and therefore not open to public review. (For details see Applied Underwriters Sale…).

Applied Underwriters was once but is no longer an affiliate of Berkshire Hathaway. Applied’s management bought it. Berkshire Hathaway bears no responsibility for any of the events which have transpired involving Applied Underwriters’ or its subsidiaries including California Insurance Company.
