BASF Stocks as a Case Study in Corporate Evolution (Part 2)
BASF Stocks as a Case Study in Corporate Evolution (Part 1)
Inorganic growth is a way of life at BASF. Again, it is a low profile process, but determined to generate stock value nevertheless. The acquisition of the agricultural input products of American Cyanamid raised some investor eyebrows when it was first announced, but stock dividends over the past five years have irrefutably proved the benefits of this visionary move. Some of the success was due to the German precision with which new authorities were established in the acquired stocks. Other smaller acquisitions have been even lower below stock market radars, but have certainly unlocked significant stock value over time.
Excellence in Human Resources development is now a minimal qualifying factor in global corporate operations. It is difficult for outsiders to glean details of processes that BASF uses to attract and to retain top grade employees, but key personnel turnover appears to be low. The company certainly has comprehensive management infrastructure in place for key developing and emerging markets and business segments.
