How do you float a company - my companies are now reaching 100bn but says that the value is too small... one is 105bn - surely that is enough /??? DO you have to nationalise them first ? Any suggestions,

Cheers

I've found this a rather successful and to a degree beneficial aspect of the game. Typically I launch an IPO at around 200B MV, however I've had the option available around 150B.

I've only had a few disagreements with the system, one of the key ones being the automatic monthly sales of shares after the corp goes public. Having my country's stock in a corp flitter away at 2-3% per month till I own only 51%is rather inconvenient. I'd rather save those shares for sales in the advent of a financial emergency.

My current strategy has just been to issue new shares, however with the automatic sales going, if I move too quickly in the issuing, I end up flooding the market and having MV drop.

If things work well, getting in early is an advantage, since the MV and share price skyrocket. I have a Production plant corp who's share price is now 7,000+.

Lowering the cap on when you can issue shares might be useful, typically my corps don't have much debt left once I can issue an IPO.
