Money Injections to Public Corporations

Topics: Suggestions: Money Injections to Public Corporations

As it is today, the controlling stockholder cannot transfer money to and from a public corporation. While there is good reason why none should transfer money FROM a public corporation, there's no reason whatsoever why a controlling shareholder is not able to make a gift of cash TO a public corp, especially when it's heavily indebted, to avoid its closure. This is actually unrealistic and a counter-incentive to IPOing shares and having public corporations, which the game should normally encourage IMO.

Many times I found myself confronted with an old, fully upgraded, corporation of mine (especially Luxury Goods in the last game years), owned 50%-50% by my CEO and my country which is heavily indebted and I can't do anything about it. So I end up selling all my country's stocks to my CEO to be able to save the corp with money injections.

I suggest that majority shareholders should be able to transfer cash TO (not from) a public corporation. It is fair and realistic.

public corporations have a great way to raise money.
they sell new shares.

you seem to forget why a corporation goes public in the first place.
to be able to raise money.

If you have only other reasons for that, don't go public and keep them 100% in your own hands, or your enterprise, and you are free to transfer money.

nobody gives a public corporation money for free. they always issue shares.

if the situation is so bad, and they are failing, you might even consider to convert them or let them close.
