E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co.: The Conoco Split-off (A) Case Solution

Taking the 30% of its Conoco oil and gas subsidiary public in the largest domestic initial public offering (IPO) in U.S. history, the administration ofof E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co. (DuPont) is considering divesting its remaining interest in Conoco. This objective would be achieved through a comparatively unusual trade called a corporate "split-away," under which DuPont's stockholders will be given the choice to trade their shares in DuPont for shares in Conoco (but, in contrast to a more traditional "spinoff," they aren't obligated to trade their shares). Direction's goal in restructuring would be to transfer DuPont away from its conventional energy and substance company toward the life sciences (agriculture, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals).
