Abstract

The primary objectives in this case are: (1) examining the problems and risks that can arise with poorly scrutinized hedging programs; and (2) providing a broad backdrop for the discussion of risk reduction through marketing strategy, acquisition, agency monitoring and hedging. Futures contract prices for three petroleum grades are provided for the period that Metallgesellschaft AG had problems in its United States business in order to examine on an optional basis that situation in the futures markets. This case was sponsored by the Indiana University CIBER Case Collection.
