Back a long time ago, you use to be able to IPO a state run corp, have an enterprise take majority control, then move the corp. After it was moved, you could then sell enough shares back to the country in order for it to resume control. Since it could not "own" a corp in another country, the Enterprise would retain control for all purposes. And the corporation would not be subject to destruction under the current rules. But the country would still receive dividend payments etc. Is this still possible?

I'm beginning to set up to IPO my state run corps, and need to plan my strategy. Any advice appreciated.

Cordially yours,

Bump. And a second question about a different work around. Dismantling an army unit, reassembling, upgrading fighting levels via weapon/ammo upgrades, rinse and repeat. Should this be considered an exploit? Seems you can go to 450 quality in each category, providing you have enough materials to work with, you just need the patience to do multiple set up, tear downs.

Cordially yours,

I never tried it but if it was possible before, it should be now as we did not change any of the rules for a very long time.

Thank you for the response. I will try it out.

There are various limits in the game for which I know more than most, and perhaps anyone. It is indeed possible for a country to own shares in a corp that is not located in the country using the method you mention. As you say, the country could even hold a majority of the shares later and would not have control of the corp.

There is a separate cap that the country is subject to and that is that there are certain restrictions apply once a country owns shares in 300 or more corporations. At that time the country may not purchase shares in a new corp nor may it IPO any additional state corps. The country's investment fund has a similar, and separate cap, of 350 after which the IF can no longer purchase shares in additional corps.

On a somewhat different matter, can the GM answer whether the cap I reported on the amount of cash a country can have has been fixed. I reported an issue of cash holdings of over $2000T disappearing some time ago. I was told at that time a fix was coming. Thanks!
