Abstract : Although the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation emerged from World War II with a reputation as one of the leading U. S. manufacturers of military and civilian aircraft, by 1971 Lockheed had amassed debts of over $700 million and claimed it would be forced into bankruptcy unless federal loan guarantees were granted to its creditors. The report consists of three independent case studies intended for use in the management curriculum in courses on general management but have other financial overtones. (Modified author abstract)
