Caterpillar’s business has roared back from the lows seen during the financial crisis, when its revenue fell to 32.4 billion in 2009 from $51.3 billion in 2008. Revenue nearly doubled in 2011, to $60 billion. Also last year, the Peoria, Ill.-based company completed the $8.6 billion acquisition of Bucyrus using only its cash flows.
