IPO and Increasing Corp Value

Topics: White Giant: IPO and Increasing Corp Value

Hey all i was wondering what is the best way to increase corp value to the 600B mark and keep it under the 40 IPO requirement to make that company go public.

Since i know that the public corps can increase upgrades to 250 which in turn will increase the profit that company can make. Any advice on this topic would be grateful.

Thank you for your time reading this.

I always go public as it makes your corps consistently very profitable......the best way to do it is with patience time and of course low taxes :) sorry its all I got its a pain to IPO

The way that I do it is 50% State Corporation contributions, yet set full production in contract to your own country. You do still need to have hiring and production at 100% at least. Give it time and it gradually increases, then do IPO, it increases the value further.

for corporations that the market value has increased to high to IPO, (profitable corps that have 2 high a PE ratio,)

here's 2 methods... of course aside from the specifics i say, make your corp as profitable as possible

1. Set tax to 75%, this should lower you MV, once they drop, enough, turn off the tax. the corps profit will multiply by 4, for purposes of determining PE.

2. My preferred method. Give the corp an obvious name change. Then in "automated systems" at the bottom their is a list of corps. Uncheck the box in "automatically sell..." that corresponds to the corps you renamed, (makes them easier to find.) With out selling, the corp will tank, and drop in MV, like the #1 choice, but faster. then when its low enough, put the check back in the box. it will sell its stockpile, make allot of money really fast, and bring the PE ratio where you need it.

the #2 method is faster, it can take about a week, or 2. been a while since i've tried it. (used to do it allot.) the only problem, is that if you forget, not only will you end up pumpin money into your country, you might end up replacing your corps!! so don't forget!!

all that is assuming that the corp makes enough profit to have the right PE in the 600B-700B range, if it doesn't, then figure out how to make it profitable first

PE is a ratio of profit to value

so, if the corp is successful, it will gain MV, until that value lowers the relation between profit, making the PE go to high, even if the corp is making money.

to make a corporation that the Market value has over run the Profit, IPO, you must either make the corp more profitable, or lower the market value, to a range that the normal profit would be high enough to IPO

IPOing is a dance with allot of steps.

and does tanking the value and lowering pe usually work

i made over 300T in a RL month, using this method with an IPO loophole. ofcourse, that has sence been fixed. and i wouldn't have even explained this before they fixed it.

i haven't fooled around with IPOs for a while. W3C said they made changes to how the PE value is calculated. not sure what that means,

but it works! PE a ratio of profit to market value. if you cut the market value in half, and maintain the same profit, you'll also cut your PE value in half. so assuming every one out their is already running corps at maximum effiency, if your market value outgrows your profit, you'll need to lower the market value to a more manable range.

method 1 does it by reducing the "net profit," with taxes. then lowering your taxes, increases the net profit, and give you the neccessary PE value, as the profit matches the new, lower value.

method 2 does it faster, by holding back product, the corp only looses money, dropping in value. then when you turn sale back on, all the saved stock will be poured into the market, selling several game years stock, in a single month. creating a very large temp profit. but PE is partially an average of the corporations history. so the short term profit wont have a dramtic effect on the PE. however, the old sale/profit, compared to the new MV, creates a lower PE.

method 2 is faster, and more fun in my opinion. but again, its been a while sence i fooled with IPOs. W3C is moving away from what we as player used to do. and have writen in, un/announced draw backs to massive IPOing. thing i'd recommend for new IPOers, is try it with 5ish corps, set them up how you want, then watch them for week or 2, and follow where the money is going, and whether you really are making more with an public corp.

public corps certainly can make you more money. but don't just assume you'll make more.

so for these methods to work you need a pretty high initial MV or when you go to cut your PE ratio you wont have enough MV to IPO how do you get a good MV
