Making Corps Public

Topics: Help: Making Corps Public

I've finally gotten a corp in my enterprise up to 500B market cap, so I've started selling shares publicly. Coincidentally, I'm also looking to expand my one country into an empire of 3-4 nations, so I was thinking I could make these corps "public" by buying them with my countries, and keeping effective control. Actually trying to implement this has left me with some questions, though.

1) Is there any way to directly trade shares with someone and bypass the market? I know I can just go above the market and transfer cash back if I want to, but I'd rather have that added bit of security.

2) My national investment funds in my new countries are small, and have difficulty buying up 100B+ of shares. Is there any wy I can move cash into them, or do I just need to find ways to sell their existing share holdings?

3) The corp in question is located in my main country. As a result, it seems to be getting bought in my country portfolio, not my investment portfolio. Is this a difference I should worry about? Can I buy with both my country and my country's investment fund?

4) Just to confirm, I need to have no owner with 25% or more of the shares to get my 250/250 upgrades, right? I know investment funds don't count for control of the corp, but do they count for the "true public" status? Or can I have it 24% enterprise, 76% in one investment fund, and get the 250/250 upgrades?

1. C3s sell and buy shares for their investment funds during the time of month changes. If you complete the transaction outside of this time, from say the 9th or so until the last days of the month, you should be able to trade freely.

2. Raising salaries will increase the amount of contributions to the fund as will increasing your worker base. Finding ways to increase their monthly dividend income or to make cash from trading shares are other ways to increase the fund's cash amount.

3. Investment funds cannot purchase shares of corps that are currently located in your country. These will be purchased by your country instead.

4. For a "truly" public corp, one that can upgrade to 250/250, the controller of the corp must own less than 25% of shares. Investment funds do not count since they cannot control a corp. It is also important to know that an investment fund is unable to purchase shares of a corp after it owns 40% of a corp.

odssstudents1, it's always great to see players joining the share market rackets.

Let me add that there isn't any intentional game mechanic for moving cash into investment funds. In the long run, you can increase the cash in investment funds by adding population, creating high paying jobs, and making good investments. If there is a loophole for moving cash into or out of investment funds, it wouldn't be discreet to post that.

As for distributing shares of your corps among your investment funds, I don't think that's worth the trouble. It means manually having your investment funds buy very overpriced shares. That communist strategy has always seemed redundant. It's not half bad to let others buy your shares. Hostile takeovers are rare.

The best use of investment funds is to buy undervalued shares, not your own overpriced shares.
