Mw Petroleum Case

...MW Petroleum Corporation Situation Overview: Amoco Corporation conducted an extensive review of its cost structure and profitability, leading to major restructurings to better focus on its core businesses. The result of this was a divestment of the middle section of its assets along the marginal curve. Thus, creating MW Petroleum Corporation – a new, free-standing exploration and production oil and gas company. MW was offered to a number of targeted international petroleum concerns, but the most attractive offer came from Apache Corporation. In late 1990, the group of Amoco Corporation and Apache Corporation began talking in regards to the possible acquisition of MW Petroleum Corporation from Amoco to Apache. If the acquisition pushes through, it will provide Apache a great opportunity as well as becoming one of the largest acquisitions since MW’s size is two times larger compared to Apache’s current operation. Nonetheless, Apache must first carefully evaluate MW’s value to come up with a proposal that would be attractive for Amoco and profitable for Apache as well. The following paragraphs will discuss the latter. 1. In the lights of low oil and gas price in the market, big companies, such as Amoco seek to restructure in order to increase profitability. Amoco’s plans are to reduce its capital and exploration that are not generating significant returns or the company not having advantage with the returns. The intention of the company is to review its assets with an eye...

Mw Petroleum Case Study

...In less than five, double-spaced, typewritten pages, plus any exhibits, please answer the following questions about MW Petroleum Corp. This assignment is worth a maximum of 100 points. 1. (10 points.) Apart from any quantitative analysis, are there any reasons to anticipate that Apache Corporation’s acquisition of MW Petroleum might be a positive net present value activity for Apache, for Amoco? Explain. This looks like an attractive deal for both parties. Amoco does many things well, but managing smaller, marginally productive oil and gas fields apparently isn’t one of them. This is a chance to unload some properties that because of their high cost structure, Amoco can’t manage profitably. Apache, on the other hand, has low costs and is an efficient operator of small- to mediumsized properties. The company has grown significantly in recent years by acquiring less wellrun properties and applying its “rationalize and reconfigure” strategy. The MW Petroleum properties appear to offer the opportunity to continue this strategy. If Amoco can strike a price wherein Apache shares some of its operating savings with Amoco, both parties can generate positive net present values from the transaction. Acquisition of MW Petroleum may also reduce the volatility of Apache’s cash flows by making them less dependent on gas. Although this may not benefit shareholders directly, it will likely enable management to sleep better and might increase Apache’s borrowing capacity, thereby benefiting......

Mw Petroleum

...Company Name: MW Petroleum Amoco Corporation was the fifth largest oil company in United States with 28 billion in operating revenues and 1.9 billion in net income. The low oil prices in the 1980s depressed the profitability of many oil companies and most of which responded with downsizing and other cost cutting measures aimed at overhead expenses. Amoco had already sold more than 750 million worth of small properties, which it felt could be more economically operated by companies with low overhead costs. Amoco conducted an extensive study on capital structure and profitability in 1988 and found that 85% of its margin in United States was provided by 11% of its producing fields and rest had disproportionately high overhead costs and repair costs. Based on this a strategy was formed to divest up to 1.2 billion worth of additional properties. As the spinoff could take almost two years it was decided to assemble the properties in a new free standing E&P company called MW Petroleum. In the 1990s MW was up for sale and Apache expressed interest in the deal. Apache, a Denver based operator of small- medium sized properties was an efficient and cost effective company and the business strategy was to “rationalize and reconfigure”. The strategy involved acquiring and controlling producing properties, and quickly turn around the efficiency. Apache was specifically interested in MW as it was a large company that would more than double Apache’s reserves and was comprised of......

...MW corp By michael_manly | Draft MW Petroleum Corporation (A) Background: In late 1990, the group of Amoco Corporation and Apache Corporation had begun talking regarding the possible acquisition of MW Petroleum from Amoco to Apache. MW Petroleum Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Amoco Corporation which has its own reserves, management team and with full ownership in geologic and engineering data. MW Petroleum, a free-standing exploration company that was even as large as some of independent oil companies. It operated exploration and development for well, approximately working interests in 9,500 wells in 300 production areas. The growth of MW was very attractive to the other investors, which company grows 30% per year since mid-1980s, due to large acquisition. If the acquisition will push through, this will be one of the largest acquisition in that period because MW size was two times large compare to Apache’s current operation. Amoco Corporation Amoco Corporation was formerly Standard Oil Company (Indiana) was built in 1889 located at Whiting, Indiana, United States.

...Partnership or Corporation 1. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of Thomas and Bryan forming a corporation? First of all, a corporation is a legal entity, created by the state, whos assets and liabilities are separate from its owners. It has some rights, duties, and powers of a person, as well as the rights to receive, own or transfer property. It is also important to mention that corporations are typically owned by many individuals and organizations who shares of the business, called stock. After this, I found some advantages or disadvantages for Thomas and Bryan if they want to form a corporation. Disadvantages: First of all, they will not be able to form a corporation in any State of the U.S. According to the law, there are some states in the U.S. that do not allow corporations owned by only two individuals. Information play an important role in any corporation, it takes a long time, as well as a lot of money to make annual reports with financial information of the office theys want to put, the flowers, and all that stuff, that is probably going to take a good part of the $10,000 of their initial contribution. Fees and formality will be some other disadvantages of turning the business into a corporation, considering that the Capital contributed was not a big amount. Finally, we cannot forget that corporations have potential double tax consequences (once when the company makes its profit, and a second time when dividends are paid to shareholders),...

Financial Analysis of Morrison Mw needs under one roof. Furthermore, the company supports health eating habits and promotes unrelenting battle against the obesity epidemic. The UK population is becoming more cognizant about the effects of consuming unhealthy foods and thus they are more conscious on the types of food they consume on a regular basis. However, in order to support the initiative and meet its customers’ social demand Morrison Supermarkets re-launched a product known as “Eat Smart." This led to an increase in company sales by 7% indicating consumers’ growing requirements for healthier foods and increased concern regarding the nutritional content of the food they consume (Dana, 2010). Financial Performance: Ratio Analysis The financial ratios of the Morrison (MW) supermarket can be calculated through comparison of at least two figures in the financial statement accounts which are interconnected to some extent. Therefore, the ratios calculated are used to analyse and assess the financial performance of the Morrison Supermarket. However, the ratios are meaningless on their own and provide a very little information if they are not benchmarked against the corresponding ratios of the other companies carrying out similar business, and encountering similar risks and opportunities. Therefore, Morrison’s ratio will be compared with other companies’ ratios; Tesco, Sainsbury and supermarket. Liquidity Ratios The liquidity ratios highlight the solvency of Morrison business which shows the ability of the......

...Harvard Business School 9 - 2 9 5 -029 Rev. November 21, 1994 MW Petroleum Corporation (A) In late 1990, executives, engineers, and financial advisors working for Amoco Corporation and Apache Corporation began serious discussions about the sale to Apache of MW Petroleum Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amoco Production Company. Amoco had transferred to MW certain of its own assets that it regarded as non-strategic. MW's size, location, and operations were all very attractive to Apache, which had grown nearly 30% per year since the mid-1980s, largely through acquisitions. The transaction being discussed with Amoco would be Apache's largest to date. It would more than double the size of Apache's current operations, as well as its reserves of oil and natural gas. By the end of January 1991, Apache's executives and advisors were sufficiently familiar with the properties in MW to begin refining their estimates of operating and financial performance in order to structure a formal offer. Apache's chief financial officer, Mr. Wayne Murdy, knew that financing would be a challenge, given the size of the proposed transaction. In fact, the availability of external financing, bank debt in particular, was likely to impose some practical limits on both the amount and form of consideration that Apache could offer to Amoco. It was essential that Apache carefully evaluate MW, both the whole and its parts, and study the likely patterns of cash flows so that......

Mw Petroleum

...REAL OPTION VALUATION: MW PETROLEUM I. Company background and description on each of 4 projects In 1991, Amoco Corporations, a conglomerate of petroleum and chemical corporations, decided to divest some of their smaller properties and when further cuts were needed, they looked to divest the middle section of assets in its marginal curve. As a result, they formed MW Petroleum, a free-standing exploration company that was even as large as some of independent oil companies. It operated exploration and development for well, approximately working interests in 9,500 wells in 300 production areas. Amoco then prepared to sell MW Petroleum to a mid-size independent petroleum company. Apache Corporation was interested in buying most portions of MW and was the only buyer that appears to be a good fit in the market at that time. Apache, with revenue of $270 million, believed that achieving high profit could be realized by acquiring marginal properties and operating well with expertise. Therefore, the deal was likely to be a win-win situation for both parties, if they could reach a reasonable price to accept. The asking price from Amoco was $1 billion. Was it a reasonable price? We will discuss this number, and find a conclusion to this question through our document. II. Valuation Methodology Generally, the Discounted Cash Flow method is the most popular valuation methodology for financial analysts. It uses the concept of time value of money; the future cash flows are......

...D. WALL THIMOTHY A. LUEHRMAN PETER TUFANO MW Petroleum Corporation (A) A finales de 1990, ejecutivos, ingenieros y asesores financieros de Amoco Corporation y Apache Corporation comenzaron a negociar la venta a Apache de MW Petroleum Corporation, filial que pertenecía en su totalidad a Amoco Production Company. Amoco había transferido a MW algunos de sus activos no considerados estratégicos. El tamaño, localización y operaciones de MW resultaban atractivos a Apache, que había tenido un crecimiento anual de casi un 30% desde mediados de los años ochenta, en gran medida a través de adquisiciones. Esta transacción con Amoco sería la mayor de Apache hasta la fecha: aumentaría en más del doble el tamaño de sus operaciones corrientes, así como sus reservas de petróleo y gas. A finales de enero de 1991, los ejecutivos y asesores de Apache estaban lo suficientemente familiarizados con las propiedades de MW como para empezar a concretar sus planes operativos y financieros, y así estar en condiciones de realizar una oferta formal. El principal agente de finanzas de Apache, Wayne Murdy, sabía que la financiación constituiría un reto, dado el tamaño de la transacción propuesta. De hecho, la dificultad de obtener financiación externa, en particular un préstamo bancario, probablemente pondría límites prácticos a la cuantía y forma de la oferta que Apache podría hacer a Amoco. Era esencial que Apache evaluara cuidadosamente MW, tanto en su conjunto como cada una de sus......

...expect that the MW properties are more valuable to Apache than to Amoco? What sources of value most plausibly account for the difference between buyer and seller? 2. Structure and execute a DCF valuation of all the MW reserves. How much are the reserves worth? Is your estimate more likely to be biased high or low? What are the sources of bias? 3. How would you structure an analysis of MW as a portfolio of assets in place and options? Specifically, which parts of the business should be regarded as assets in place and which as options? What kinds of options are present? Should this approach yield a higher or lower value that the DCF approach? 4. Execute the analysis you structured in Question 3, beginning with assets in place. How risky are the assets that underlie the options; i.e. how would you estimate SD for each? How much is the whole portfolio worth? 5. Assuming a sale goes through, how does Apache exercise each of the various options? When should it do so? BACKGROUND In a case prepared by Barbara Wall at the Harvard Business School, entitled MW Petroleum Corporation A, (doi:9-295-029; 1994), she stated that the 1980’s had been a difficult decade for the oil industry. Profitability of oil companies declined due to low prices; and most of these firms responded with cost-cutting measures. Many top companies divested their marginal properties, seeking to consolidate and rationalize their productive assets- one of which was Amoco Corporation. Amoco Corporation conducted......

...Introduction A corporation is a legal entity that is created under the laws of a state designed to establish the entity as a separate legal entity having its own privileges and liabilities distinct from those of its members. There are many different forms of corporations, most of which are used to conduct business. Early corporations were established by charter (i.e. by an ad hoc act passed by a parliament or legislature). Most jurisdictions now allow the creation of new corporations through registration. An important (but not universal) contemporary feature of a corporation is limited liability. If a corporation fails, shareholders normally only stand to lose their investment and employees will lose their jobs, but neither will be further liable for debts that remain owing to the corporation's creditors. Sole- Proprietorship A business structure in which an individual and his/her company is considered a single entity for tax and liability purposes. A sole proprietorship is a company which is not registered with the state as a limited liability company or corporation. The owner does not pay income tax separately for the company, but he/she reports business income or losses on his/her individual income tax return. The owner is inseparable from the sole proprietorship, so he/she is liable for any business debts also called proprietorship. A business can be set up in a variety of ways, ranging from a sole-proprietorship to a general partnership, an LLC to a......

The Corporation

...qualities, analysis of growth and history, exploration of impacts, and brief look at the future of the modern business corporation. The documentary defines a corporation as a legal person, explaining that is has most of the legal rights a person has such as borrowing money and managing property. The film was released around the time of major corporate scandals, such as Xerox, Enron, and WorldCom, and uses the metaphor “bad apples” to state that there are more than a few corporations that are bad. The film argues that if corporations were people, they would have psychopathic personalities. It then states that corporations have become a vessel which good and bad people can cause harm to society because of the way corporations have evolved and how they are protected. The Corporation film is concerned with the role corporations have in modern society its impact, or the corporate social responsibility. The film explores how corporations have been poisoning the earth as well as consumer minds and how the government is intended to look over and control these corporations. It looks into some of the unethical business practices and strategies executed by corporations and the externalities that are created to satisfy the main goal of the corporation: to maximize profit and market share. 2. Body A major social issue that was brought up in this film is the way that corporations treat foreign factory workers. The film is concerned with the rampant use of sweatshops by large......
