FIN 620 – Business Case Assignment

Midland Energy Resources

Assignment:

Review the Harvard Business School Case (Brief Case) – #4130, dated June 19, 2009

Midland Energy Resources, Inc.: Cost of Capital

Timothy  A Luehrman

joel    L. Heilprin

Consider the following in your analysis:

  The main goal for this case is for Janet Mortensen to append a sort of “user

guide” in her 2007 calculations;

  If she did append a “user’s guide” what might be her guidance for different

types of project analysis at Midland such as capital budgeting and financial

accounting, performance assessments, M&A proposals, and stock repurchase

decisions;

  how might the cost of capital numbers differ or guidance differ for division-

level versus corporate-level decisions; 

  what guidance might she provide with validating the components used to

compute the WACC;

  how would you compute a cost of capital for the Petrochemical division;

  what ‘actual’ firm would you use now as a pure play for the Petrochemical

division.
