排行榜 - 100家增长最快的公司 - 2012年

财富增长最快的公司排行榜陨落的7大明星

SHELLEY DUBOIS 2012年09月13日

一些快速成长的公司成功地保持了增长动力,另外一些却难以跟上市场前进的步伐。本文盘点了7家曾经风光无限,如今却江河日下的公司。

切萨匹克能源公司

上榜年份:2005

排名:第46

公司首席执行官奥贝利•麦克科兰登对业绩增长的看法一贯保守,这种战略一时是奏效的。2005年,公司在《财富》“增长最快公司榜单”上名列第46位。

麦克科兰登的战略是,购买大片油气田,用公司的利润来投资开发以获得更大的增长。不幸的是,麦克科兰登将公司的未来过度押宝在天然气上,而这种能源开采起来代价高昂,在美国市场却只能低价销售。这种做法使切萨匹克能源公司开始逐渐债台高筑。今年4月,有消息爆出称麦克科兰登的个人资产开始与公司业务发生关联。8月,公司因可能与竞争者串通压低密歇根州的油气价格而受到美国监管机构调查。

因此,切萨匹克能源公司虽然还不至于破产,但其增长战略却建立在摇摇欲坠的基础之上。

Chesapeake Energy

List year: 2005

Rank: 46

Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McClendon had tunnel vision on growth, and for a while, the strategy paid off. Chesapeake was #46 on Fortune's Fastest-Growing list in 2005.

McClendon's strategy was to buy massive tracts of oil and gas land and reinvest the company's profits so it could grow more. Unfortunately, McClendon banked the future hard on natural gas, which is expensive to drill yet still cheap to sell in America. This move caused Chesapeake to amass an unstable amount of debt. In April, news broke that McClendon's personal money was getting tied up in company business. The company was under investigation by U.S. regulators in August for possible collusion with a competitor to lower the price of oil and gas land in Michigan.

So Chesapeake isn't going under, but its growth strategy was built on shaky ground.
