Hi guys, I just wanted to let you know the Tuesday IPO bug is still happening. Though I had no problem with the 12:45 A.M. round of 12 IPO's (They went through cleanly), I did have a situation on this mornings round of 14 IPO's I initiated.
I started 14 IPO's during the 10:45 A.M. window. At exactly 11:00 A.M. during the first processing, my country (Treasure Chest, on White Giant) lost immediate control of Cars 07. I have taken screenshots of both the corporation screen, and also the share holdings screen.
Notice that on the corporation screen it says 100m shares outstanding. Now note on the share holdings screen that my CEO controls 3.25% and is majority holder. Weird huh? Also a handful of Investment Funds were able to snatch up immediate shares upon the initial offering before the first processing even began.
When I tried to sell shares at 11:00 A.M., it wouldn't allow me to offer any more because all the shares were gone from my country's control immediately upon the initial offering.
See what you can do guys.
Here are the direct links to my screenshots I saved:
1) Corporation Screen (taken right after I noticed something wrong)
2) Corporation Share Holdings Screen
Thanks for looking into this.
I only lost one of the 14 corps this round, so I must say at the least, it isn't as bad as it used to be.
P.S. As was the case last week, I was not paid for the sale of those shares.
