Finance Question The management of Mitchell labs decided to go private in 2002 by buying in all 3 million of its outstanding shares at 19.50 per share. By 2006 management had restructured the company by selling off the petroleum research division for 13 million, the fiber technology division for 9.5 million, and the synthetic products division for 21 million. Because these divisions had only been marginally profitable, Mitchell labs is a stronger company after the restructuring. Mitchell is now able to concentrate exclusively on contract research and will generate earnings per share of 1.25 this year.
