IPO Glitch


When an enterprise is terminated, the shares it owns go to the gamemaster corporations enterprise.

That is true.

However, from time to time a glitch happens, when a corp becomes public and Gamemaster Corporations gain some shares with two things not taking place:
- Gamemaster Corporations does not issue an order to buy shares.
- The country sold 15% of the shares, for example, and the GM Corps holds 99% now.

This is the method that Treasurer was referring to some weeks ago in his threads.

This glitch only happens the second you IPO a corp and seems to be random. I've noticed it for a very long time (read: over a year), but I did not care to annoy anyone about this.

If Gamemaster Corporations would turn auto buy and sell of shares, I would appreciate it. And it would serve very nicely as a temporary solution.

This glitch, for all I know, appears to be random and is instantaneous. Sometimes the shares are distributed among the GM, the others among my CEOs and Investment Funds. Why? I cannot say.

I cannot explain the glitch to any degree that would facilitate its solution. All I can say is that it happens.

I can give you two examples from long ago, when I was interested in this glitch, in December of last year:
Owner Quantity (%) Price Paid Value
Liberal Republic 200,000,000 200.00 % 64.64 SC$ 431.96B SC$
Shiva 199,999,872 200.00 % 77.48 SC$ 431.96B SC$
Rain 199,999,872 200.00 % 91.68 SC$ 431.96B SC$
Investment Funds in Liberal Kingdom 40,000,000 40.00 % 91.88 SC$ 86.39B SC$
Investment Funds in SOL country 159,999,872 160.00 % 0.22 SC$ 345.57B SC$

Owner Quantity (%) Price Paid Value
Dies Irae 15,000,000 15.00 % 5,163.23 SC$ 83.80B SC$
Shiva -11,875,002 -11.88 % 4,531.24 SC$ -66.35B SC$
Rain 1,562,499 1.56 % 12,426.24 SC$ 8.73B SC$
Investment Funds in Subjective Reality 1,562,500 1.56 % 20,710.40 SC$ 8.73B SC$

Can you guess why this happens? Why the shares are distributed among my CEOs and Investment Funds instantaneously and in the percentage I desire, Willard? Why not someone else's CEO or another percentage?

I know I have repeated the same process more than a thousand times on Kebir Blue alone...
