OMG, whatever happened to the Inc.?

To the Editor:

Genealogically, I am generally well informed. Historically, I have much reading done. Politically, I try to keep myself on my toes. But economically, my, my, have I ever been asleep. While I was asleep, the Inc.s have turned into LLCs.

I picked it up when I tried to follow the trail of Fraser Paper, Ltd., through Fraser Papers Inc. and on through Twin Rivers buy out by Blue Wolf LLC and Atlas Holding LLC.

So I woke up and asked, what ever happened to the Inc.?

I looked at the back pages of the St. John Valley Times. In several issues over the past ten years, I  found:

Autoronics LLC, March 12, 2012, p. 26;

Bay Communications II, LLC  Nov. 12, 2014, p. 18;

Big Rock Transportation LLC Aug. 27, 2014, p.22;

Chamberland Cedar Specialties, LLC March 15, 2015, p. 15;

Country Village Estates LLC Jan. 7, 2015, p.15;

Evergreen Manufacturing Group. LLC Sept. 2, 2010, p.32;

Healing Hearts, LLC April 15, 2015, p. 22;

Huber Engineered Woods, LLC July 22, 2015, p. 18;

Irving Woodlands LLC July 8, 2015, p. 13;

Law Office of Lisa Chase, LLC Dec. 24, 2008, p. 16;

Maine Woods Company, LLC Aug. 15, 2012, p. 13;

Sargent Trucking LLC Aug. 27, 2014, p. 21;

SJV Recovery & Behavioral Health, LLC  July 30, 2014, p. 21;

St. John Valley Realty Co., LLC  June 1, 2011, p.24;

Thompson-Hamel, LLC Feb. 18, 2015, p. 5;

Whispering Pines Construction, LLC May 12, 2010, p. 25; and,

Wing Hing Far, LLC July 1, 2015, p. 23.

Does this mean that these companies have been through the same meat-grinder that Fraser Paper Ltd. went through. I repeat: “Have I ever been asleep? What in the world is going on? What’s happened to XXX Co. Inc.?
