Colorado workers' comp company increases offer

The state-chartered workers' compensation insurance fund that wants to be privatized has increased its offer to the state. Pinnacol Assurance President Ken Ross said Thursday the company is offering $330 million to the state so it can go private. That's $130 million more than it offered earlier for a buyout.

The increased offer comes a week after the release of an analysis from financial-services firm Morgan Stanley that said the quasi-governmental agency was worth as much as $374 million to the state, nearly twice the amount Pinnacol had originally offered.

Lawmakers who would have to approve a buyout say any deal will probably have to wait until next year.
