Dow Chemical to Expand Corporate Headquarters

The Dow Chemical Company has announced plans to construct a new 150,000-square-foot building at its headquarters in Midland, MI. Dow expects that construction of the six-story building, part of the company's 150-acre corporate campus, will take two years to complete. The new facility will be designed with an open floor plan and will have office space for more than 600 employees.

Dow Reportedly Seeks Finance

All told, The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW) is planning to raise some $6 billion in non-strategic asset sales, which makes the remaining portion of its business easier to understand but more investment-worthy. This is because Dow Chemical's attention to high-growth businesses such as agricultural sciences, building and construction, and performance plastics, makes the company's consensus long-term earnings growth projections arguably underestimated.
