This excerpt taken from the PCR 8-K filed Jun 1, 2006.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On May 31, 2006, the registrant issued the press release filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

This excerpt taken from the PCR 8-K filed Apr 14, 2006.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

        On April 13, 2006, Perini Corporation issued the press release filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

This excerpt taken from the PCR 8-K filed Dec 13, 2005.

Item 8.01.    Other Events.

 

As previously disclosed in the Current Reports on Form 8-K filed by Perini Corporation (“Perini”) on November 30, 2005 and December 5, 2005, on November 28, 2005 the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia entered a $21.8 million judgment against two of Perini’s joint ventures in the matter of the Mergentime Corporation, et al. v. Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) v. Insurance Company of North America. The court awarded WMATA $21,813,439 in damages, plus prejudgment interest. The court also awarded damages to the joint ventures of $200,442, plus prejudgment interest.

 

On December 6, 2005, Perini and Mergentime Corporation jointly filed a motion with the court requesting that the court enter an order directing the parties to submit briefs within 30 days regarding the appropriateness of the award of prejudgment interest and the amount and to mediate the award of prejudgment interest. On December 9, 2005, WMATA filed a motion with the court claiming prejudgment interest of $18,906,638.15 as of December 19, 2005. In addition, WMATA’s calculation of prejudgment interest assumed that the court would enter judgment on December 19, 2005. If the judgment is entered after that date, WMATA stated that it would adjust its calculation of prejudgment interest to account for the extra time for accrual of interest. WMATA also requests that the court (i) eliminate the prejudgment interest on the damages awarded to the joint ventures, (ii) reduce by $356,173 the net damages awarded to WMATA due to a clerical error and (iii) enter a judgment on December 19, 2005 in accordance with WMATA’s motion.

 

Calculation of the amount of prejudgment interest depends upon the interest rate to be applied as well as the time from which prejudgment interest is determined to accrue. While Perini intends to argue, based upon a variety of theories, that prejudgment interest should not be awarded at all or that it should be awarded in a lower amount than that claimed by WMATA, these arguments may not ultimately succeed. Until the court enters a judgment regarding the amount of prejudgment interest awarded, Perini does not know what the actual total amount of the prejudgment interest will be, but the amount could be material.
