MCI WorldCom and EDS put the shutters down today after reports they are discussing forming a joint venture offering voice, data and computer systems services.
Neither company would comment on a report in the Washington Post that they are considering a deal that would center around EDS buying the part of MCI WorldCom's business that creates computer systems.
MCI WorldCom would also handle the communications needs of EDS, according to the report, as well as handing over the managing of its billing and information systems to EDS. The deal would likely involve transfer of several thousand jobs.
An unnamed MCI WorldCom executive was reported as saying that the companies are close to an agreement, but that it is not yet a done deal.
