FIRST ISSUE OF SECURITIES OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC BY THE
ASSOCIATED PRODUCING AND REFINING CORPORATION
POLICIES AND PLANS
In offering its first block of securities the Associated Producing and Refining Corporation has two definite plans:
FIRST-To raise funds to develop its immense holdings. SECOND-To build a Refiney, which will have a daily capacity of 5,000 barrels to begin with; to purchase tank cars, and to build pipe lines.
THE QUESTION OF THE DAY-REFINERIES
People are buying refinery securihies because it is safe, not a gambling or speculative, investment.
HERE ARE A FEW OF THE REASONS WHY
Reflnino and casingl;ead procucticn is conceded to be the safe side of the oil business.
Refining prcfits rangs from 100 per cent to 300 per cent on money invested in all well-managed refineries. Casinghead gasoline profits range from 400 per cent to 1,000 ptr cent on money invested.
This Company's plans are made so that at all t.mes 40 per cent of its assets will be invested. or available for the safe side of its business, which should always net the investor a satisfactory dividend.
The capitalization of this company was purposely placed at two million dollars, so that ample funds could , at all times, had for development purposes without restricting the safe size of our operations.
*] OUW CAPITALIZATION ASSURES SAFETY
A And should at all times provide ample and sufficient capital, so that the drilling of dry holes, if we should ever have such -- - -
a a thing, will not affect our ability to pay satisfactory dividends on every share of stock issued. . .
