The case examines the financial performance of two petroleum refineries - MRPL and RPL - established by the private sector in India during the mid-1990s.

Though the shares of both these refineries were oversubscribed by investors during their public issue, the financial performance of these companies was very different during the period 1999-2002.

The case studies the returns provided by the shares of both these companies and compare them with the overall stock market returns during the period 1996-2002. It analyzes the systematic risk (Beta) involved when investing in the shares of these companies.
