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

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.
