One of my corps keeps buying a huge amount of very high quality products and I can't figure why?
I've set supply quality to 135.
I've checked supply contracts, and the system says I have no contracts outstanding.
Checking recent purchases, however, reveals I am buying too high quality from the same corps over and over.
It is a public corp that I bought shares in, and gained control. I now have 67 months of chemicals at 345 quality!!!!!
Help from any sage, would be appreciated.

Rob, at a guess you checked the contracts for your country which said none but doesn't show corp contracts.
Go the corp page of the one in question and toward the bottom is an option to view the corps contracts. They may well show there and you can cancel any you dont want from there.
Buy the excess high quality from the corp if you want, with your country, and put it on the world market to at least get most your money back.

Thanks for the response. The corp is in my enterprise, and it was a public corp I bought shares in and gained control. I should have checked the supplies before investing.
No contracts even from the lower contract button. I did lower supply quality requested, so perhaps that will help. How do you oust/sell shares in a corp if it is simply unrepairable, when there is no demand for the shares??

Lots of factors to consider rob. If you are the sole CEO or country that owns shares then nothing you can do but leave the shares for sale or close the corp. You could sell all your shares to your countries investment fund if it isnt in that country and I think theres a new limit to how many shares an IF can own now.
If there is another country or CEO owning some shares then sell yours so you are no longer the controlling body and hope they fix it.
Note, IFs cannot control a corp. If no country or CEO owns any shares, just IFs, then Gamesmaster corps take control of it.

Thanks again. I'll try selling and see what happens.
PS. Is there a flag or way to tell when a state can actually start controlling its corps? Not being able to is annoying as ...well anything else you can imagine.

Not sure what you mean.
The top of the corp page will tell you who controls the corp. Just being the majority share holder means you control it (IFs dont count). This makes them public corps.
If the majority share holder owns less than 25% of the shares then its what generally is called a 'truly public' corp and it can be upgraded to 250 effectivity and quality bonus instead of the normal publics 225.
There is some confusion between what people call private and public corps so beware.
