Why are my companies disobeying orders

When I set a sale strategy, they seem to still sell their products at whatever the heck price they darn well please. Why are they ignoring my sale strategy?

This is one of the companies in question. I am still changing the trade strategy to find something that works. I've ordered the company to sell at insane high prices, but they refuse to do so (check the sale log) In addition, the numbers I'm being shown make no sense. I'm told the products sold last month was 1.403M (general data) and that the products sold is also 1.403M (cash flow), while the products sold is somehow 1.417M (profit and loss) - all point to a net loss
Despite this, somehow, the amount of money my company has keeps increasing every month.

Quality of the Product 120 (1.2) * Market Price 571 * Production Last Month 2,067,007 = Products Sold Last Month 1,403.50M

Within a few bucks, what you see above is how things will work out. This only changes if you set your sell strat too low. If you set it high, it will effectively cap at the above formula. You will get identical results if you simply set your sell strat to "best price".

Your corporation is currently not profitable since it is new and needs time to upgrade your production process quality and effectivity. As those values increase, you will produce a higher quality product, which sells for more, and do so with less workers.

The reason your corps cash amount is currently increasing is because you are working through your initial stock of supplies. You currently have 5-6 months in stock of everything and very soon will need to place large orders for new stock. Your profit and loss calculation figures you for consuming about $990M worth of these supplies each month.

Edit: Thanks for providing an example. Without it, you are far less likely to get a reply.
