THE TRANSFORMATION OF A RAILROAD

The ten-year transformation of the Illinois Central Railroad into IC Industries, a diversified conglomerate, is described. Between 1966 and 1975, revenues grew from $300 million to $1.5 billion and currently most pretax earnings are from nonrail enterprises. In addition to merging Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad, IC Industries has holdings in heavy industry, real estate, consumer products and financial enterprises. The planning and corporate restructuring are described.
