I'm wondering what everyone else sets this at, and why. Does it even have much of an effect either way?

Mines about 80%. Usually adjust it downwards if a public corporation takes a funny turn to bring its value back up.
Some people are in the 90's.
I personally try to keep it lower as its more likely to allow a higher profit and therefore go public.

just becuase i love calvin and hobbes.
for a ceo, its best to turn off profit sharing, and use the "reduce" button at the bottom of "profit, cash, and debt,"
for a country, the above 80% would be just fine, i like to run mine at 95%, leave just enough profit in the corp, to help it ride over the ruff times. if you want to go public with your corps, you can lower profit sharing, just long enough to get them off the ground.

Cool thanks guys. So basically the profit sharing rate can be changed to manipulate the value of your corporations. Thanks!
Orbiter, thanks for helping out a fellow calvin and hobbes fan. I understand what you said regarding the best strategy for a country, but if you don't mind clarifying what you said regarding CEOs, you're saying it's best for an enterprise to set profit sharing at 0%? Also, and excuse me if this is an obvious question, but where is this "reduce" button you speak of?

I miss Calvin & Hobbs. My P.S. rate constantly varies depending on the value of the corp. & the amount of cash it carries. If someone takes over a $1B corp. fine, build another and keep the money. Too much cash in the corp. allows for a cheap takeover. It's a little touchy & corps are different. I like to take a corp to value $1B+ with enough cash to function, then use 95% rate until you see it's suffering. Some cash cows don't.

Oops, meant $1T, not $1B.

if your looking in your country for the "reduce" button, its not their, its one of the few CEO only things. its under corps, "profit, cash, and debt," all the way at the bottom. countries have a raise, and transfer button, but not a reduce
as far as clarifying the 0% profit transfer thing, its an old school trick, that i'm not gonna explain, sorry, this thread has a couple grey areas, that could totally piss off the GM, I would rather not encourage them to change it, but if you pay attention, in your CEO, you should notice it. although, i wouldn't be surprised if some one else does explain it

Well Orbiter, I would really love that such a feature existed, otherwise corporations just keep on stacking and sitting on their money (Truly realistic, personal input), and there is no feature to draw out the excess. As State corporations you can control the name, salaries, upgrades, production/hiring levels, buying strategy, but not the cash levels, at least not completely.

@orbiter please clarify the so called 0% profit thingy ole schoolie thingy and lets see if the GM changes anything!
I likie bugs!!!!!!!!!like I likie she devils and a packet of crisps!
| Saturday, February 28, 2015 - 09:35 am |
ehh, not sure its a bug, the GM do allot of things, half baked, creating features that are intended to only work against players

I keep mine at 100%. I've never had a shortage of supplies even during the great market crash last year when the GM changed the supply times. Most of my corps are semi self sufficient. and all the profit that goes straight into strengthening my country... i guess i'm starting to stockpile weapons and stuff for when i feel like not being a pacifist and playing the LU war game. maybe not the best way to do it. but i have 31 T in cash, and 45 T in assets. profit/loss is 17.43b not sure if thats good or not. been trying to make my education index go up higher than it is lately.

Do `Reduce` work for all corp, privately held corp and Enterprise controlled public corp. I input 100,000 X 1M SC$ (100 Bil)to reduce ECPC cash with 200+bil, but it doesn`t work.
