Dear GM I need an answer: My cargo shuttle corporation, Apo Cargo Shuttles went missing suddenly at April 3465 on KB. It was a new corp that I used 10 GCs to super boost it to max and I stocked it with A LOT of cash and with 10.000s of shuttle components and 10s of shuttle engines, extentions and fuselages. All in all I spent about 1.0T in sim cash and 10GCs for this corporation. And after 1-2 years or so, with no debt, no trace, it vanishes. And it was owned by my CEO so no chance of moving away. And no notice of any takeover bid was given (it was so new anyway that no bid could be made). No notice in my enterprise's newspaper either.
I need an answer about this and I want my 10GCs and my 1T $ back

Most probably the corporation bankrupted for lack of cash.
These corporations are very profitable and many are doing very good but they need cash in the initial stages.
We advise you not to create such corporations if you do not plan to babysit them in the initial days or move a very large amounts of cash into them and make sure the contract with the country remains active to automatically sell the shuttles to the country.

Most probably? That is not a definite answer. GM - Did you even read what Chris said? For once how about answer some questions players have about the economy tampering you do in this game. There are questions all over the forum right now asking you to tell us what is going on. And "most probably" is not an acceptable answer from the guy making the changes.

I have not found my corp that makes shuttles profitable but I have found that it makes shuttles that I need so I keep it around. I typically transfer $80-$100B in new cash every day, or every six game months, to keep it with enough cash to operate.
I did check your newspaper, Christos. There is indeed an entry:
Thu Apr 4, 3465 The corporation Apo Cargo Shuttles in Apo Holdings has been closed because the debt is too high. 235830 employees were fired.

Yes I posted it ob the other thread about corps missing. This entry was way after I made the post in the forums, which is strange. What's even stranger is that I indeed had the corp stocked with 200B cash because I m aware of this problem. I have 60 shuttles right now all made by my corps. I'm not that ignorant...

No corporation ever disappeared for no reason. It just never happened.
The reason it is not showing in your country is in your newspaper. (it remains there for 2-3 days).
Probably bankrupted, this is the most frequent reason but there are others so not sure it bankrupted.
I am sure you could see the reason, in your own newspaper.
As for the economic tempering:
It seems that there are some products with an oversupply.
the price of the product depends on shortages and oversupply only.
you should start looking at the details of failing corporations:
high welfare index (producing at 120%?)
is the product price falling? (Over production?)
This has always been part of the game and did not change.
You obviously count on automatic profits from all your corporations, but this has never happened.
Good corporations in Simcountry are very profitable.
