Union Oil 1950 profits
8% of total sales
32% for Raw Material*
1* Id I960 Union Oil Company took in f217H
million from the sale of its products. $68%
mflflon went right back out in payment for
16% for Wages and Salarios
2m $363*6 million went to oar 7,826 employees
in wages, salaries and benefits.
(Salaries of company officers constituted about
IX* of this.)
171 tor Suppose; n tor ransponanon
3. $37 mflHon went for supplies, rent, tools,
utility bills and other costs of doing busi
ness. $17 million went for transportation.
m for DtpMon and Depredation
4* $27 million went for depletion and de
predation—to find new oil to replace the
erode used during the year and to replace
worn-out and obsolete equipment.
AX for Tax** B for total**
5. Federal, state and municipal taxes took
$12H million.* CDtis does not include gaso
line taxes.) Interest on borrowed money
amounted to $2K million.
*Hteae taxes amount to 11% more than all divi
d««fa paid to our stockholders and equal more
than y% ot our total payroll.
SVk% for Dividends
6« This left a net profit of %VTbi million
(8%). $11M million of this profit was paid
out in dividends to our 88,095 preferred and
common stockholders. Payments averaged
per common stockholder.
2tt% for Expansion
7. The remaining $5% million of profit was
set aside to replace and expand our oil fields
and facilities in 1951.
But huru's the rub: In order to meet the
requirements of the present national emer
gency, we estimate that we should spend
$25 million drilling during 1951. We should
spend $20 million on new refining facilities.
We need $5 million for a new tanker. And
we need about $3 million for pipe lines, stor
age facilities, etc. This totals $63 million.
Our estimated 1951 reserve for depletion
and depreciation w ill amount to $30 million.
This, plus our $5% million plowed back from
1950 profits, totals only $35% million. There
fore, we’re going to have to earn and retain
about $17% million more this year than we
did in 1950—assuming there is no increase
in dividend requirements. That’s why tax
policies that don’t permit corporations to
retain earnings earmarked for needed ex
pansion can have such far-reaching effects
on the productivity and economic growth
of the nation.
