“What do you
do with ail the
money you make?"
Standard’s income someiimes raises
such comments as: "You people do a lot
of business. You must be rolling in dough.
How about answering this one—What do
you do with all the money you maker'
The answer is a matter of public
record. But in brief—after we’ve paid
for materials, wages, employee benefits,
and miscellaneous expenses..;wear and
tear on plants and equipment...interest
on our long-term debts.. .and. in the last
5 years, more than $405,000,000 in taxes
—then what’s left, the "money we
make,” goes this way:
We invest in research and
technical service — more than
$35,000,000 in the last 5 years—to
develop better ways of finding oil,
increasing the yield, cutting costs,
creating new business. That brings
you new and improved products,
with prices held down as we com
pete for your patronage.
We put funds into
facilities—in the last 5
years, more than $644,
000,000. The need for oil
products keeps growing.
Standard must replace old
wells, increase crude oil
production: add to the
capacity of refineries,
.I pipelines, tankers, and
'' other things needed to
serve you well.
Exploration here and
abroad has cost us more than
$229,000,000 in the last 5
years. Known crude reserves
are at an all-time high. Rut
these deposits were the easiest
to discover. Though the earth
holds vast hidden reserves, it
now costs many millions to
find each new field.
And finally,after setting aside
funds for future operation, our
more than 100.000 sharehold
ers get what money remains—
last year $2.60 a share, iheir
return on savings invested in
Standard. So almost all the
"money we make" goes right
hack into circulation.
