i wouldn't IPO for cash. but if do, sell 1-2M on the first offering, buy it with another country or something, then set the % goal to 93-95%, and after 2ish days, come back and set the % goal lower

doing it this way, you'll put stocks on the market for Auto-IFs to buy/sell, if the corps are profitable, its likely that the corp MV, (and share price,) will favorably respond to demand, and you'll be able to sell for a multiple of what you'd been able to right away.


but some times you might have to wait a little more than a couple days. the P/E ratio is a ratio of the price compared to profit. if the profit stays steady, then as shares are bought and sold, as the price fluxuates with demand, the PE ratio will adjust. Auto-IF are timid when buying into freshly IPOd corps. But once they start, its likely the price of the shares will multiply. If you give that enough time to kick in, couple days, some times a week, you'll literally make a multiple more in share sales.

Additionally, lowering taxes, or profit sharing, will increase the value of the stock to investment funds. its always seemed silly that a country would pay more for a stock thats value is inflated due to it hording its profits, but thats how it works.

aww, then your probably going in the wrong direction. if your corps are IPOd, they wont actually get any bonus until you sold down to <25% of the total shares. and at that point, your receiving <25% of the profits.

how ever, out of risk of telling you something you might already know.

its always been a point of irritation to players, that a CEO can say its making X amount, but in reality, its loosing money.

If your corps are making a profit, try, daily, using "profit, cash, and debt," in your CEO, to raise and lower your cash levels to the same amount. Like 30B, lower all your cash levels to 30B, then raise all your cash levels to 30B. what will happen, is all the stashed profit in the corps will be placed in your CEO's cash fund, and the ones that are struggling, will soak up some. First day, is just an adjustment, second day, it will give you a better idea of how much your cash level should be going up, if the corps payed out properly.

their are other money factors, so you'll want to use the graph, for the CEO cash level, to compare it the previous day. Usually when you do this, you'll realize that the bottom line of CEO profit, in the financial screen doesn't really mean much at all.

infact, the raise/lower feature just might be what you need. i'm sure the GM will change, just for me saying it. But much of the CEO "tax," can be avoided, just by turning profit sharing to 0% and manually lowering your cash levels, when you need money

although, its not my intent to tell you something you may already know

but back to your orignal chalenge, making your corps more profitable. i'm going to assume that your corps are as good as any one elses. and your looking for higher profit? IPOing will make the corp more profitable, but you'll need to buy into the corp with IFs, and a second CEO, that way, the extra profit will be payed to your own stuff.

IFs are a difficult investment. you can put in a steady amount, for something over 2 RL years, before you see an equal, steady, output. not exactly the best use of money, unless you know you'll be playing in 3+ years.

A difficult thing to do. You can move your IPOd corps into your country, and (its suppose to work now,) then purchase shares for your country, rather than the IF. and those dividends would be payed directly into your country's treasury. But that method takes more effort than its worth. as it can take weeks of work before you actually raise your monthly income enough to be a factor.
