VLT, the world's largest automobile manufacturer, expands!

VLT Automotive. Won fir die Welt/Cars for the World.

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT


VLT Automotive is Van Luxemburg's prime automobile constructor, which has been the biggest-selling automobile manufacturer in the Grand Duchy for years, especially when including its subsidiary companies. Now, VLT Automotive has opened to the International Market, offering their own model range to foreign nations by the special foreign sales department. As VLT Automotive is always looking for more expansion, the decision has been made to set up dealer networks all over the world, in every possible nation. The dealerships will be operated by citizens of the subject nation, and will be represented by a VLT importer in each nation. They will directly order the cars ordered at the dealerships in their nation, at the factory in Van Luxemburg. Delivery should commence anywhere from 1-12 months after order if the car has to be produced in Van Luxemburg. On top of that, the Importer and the Dealerships themselves will also have a small stash of vehicles, which allows them to deliver cars within days of the order.

VLT Automotive stands for good, qualitative excellent cars, which are fast and not as expensive as German brands, while maintaining the same levels of reliability. Cars made by VLT are really a treat for the looks of your streets and road systems. The automobiles can, if required, be equipped with biodiesel or biofuel engines, or can run on ethanol, if necessary.

Conclusion: A VLT Automotive Dealer Network is an advantage for your nation!

VLT Automotive Group N.V. – Sales Division

VLT Automotive Group N.V. Expected Profits (Increase from previous update, mainly due to activities next to automobile manufacturing)
Current Year: 32.607 Trillion USD (+$4 Trillion)
Average profit per vehicle: $19,900 (-$80)
Expected Sales, current Year: 1638.55 Million Units (+324.85 Million)
Expected Production Capacity, Current year: 1468.6 Million Units (+ 117.4 Million)


(OOC: About car sales: There were about 220,000 cars sold in The Netherlands last year. That's on a nation of 16 million people. in the US, 16.5 million cars were sold in 2006. That's for a nation of 300 million people. Just to give you an idea of the total car sales of a nation, so you can calculate your own.

Sales numbers are not exactly important though, I'll figure them out myself if necessary. News messages from your nation about how VLT's doing would be a great thing. And also consider Monteluci and Lepanto, the (somewhat more) exclusive brands!)

VLT Automotive Group N.V.
Official Communication

Image



VLT Automotive Group N.V. is always interested in acquiring additional assets. This not only means we are interested in buying automobile manufacturers, but also engine manufacturers, automotive electronics companies and parts distribution corporations. In this brochure, we will be explaining you why your company should join VLT Automotive.

Who is VLT Automotive?

VLT Automotive is one of the world’s largest automobile manufacturers. With an annual profit approaching 5 trillion USD, and sales around 550 Million units annually, VLT cannot be neglected on the Automotive market. Grand Duke Koen van Luxemburg of Van Luxemburg owns the majority of shares in VLT Automotive, with the Van Luxemburgian Government owning all remaining shares. As an N.V. not noted on the Stock Market, VLT cannot be bought by any foreign conglomerate, meaning a safe and stable future for your company.

VLT Automotive was founded in 1946, and has produced a successful model range ever since. Since 1995, VLT also has the licenses to domestically produce all cars destined for the Van Luxemburgian market, meaning VLT has almost got a monopoly on homeland sales. When your company is taken up by the VLT Automotive Group, you will also be offered a vast new market: Van Luxemburg. With total annual sales exceeding 180 million, and still rising, Van Luxemburg is an excellent opportunity for any VLT Automotive subsidiary.

Why VLT Automotive?

There are a few reasons why you should join VLT Automotive:

- A stable new market: Van Luxemburg
- Access to VLT technology and engines
- A certain degree of independence guarantees your identity
- VLT-allocated budgets allow for better cars
- VLT stands for good treatment of your employees
- Better for your economy, since VLT will produce most cars destined for your markets in your own nation
- VLT Automotive is always expanding, meaning new markets will be opened up continually
- We pay for the acquirement of your company in lucrative amounts, related to the size of your company.

Porsche earns roughly $23,000 per car, which is about the highest amount in the automotive industry.)

Dear Sir/Madam,

Having seen the required information about your company, a short meeting with the board of directors has resulted in our decision to offer you $10 million USD for your company. Crappy Cars Inc. will be merged with Bar-Hahs automobiles from ViZion, and will be dedicated to producing cars in the lower market segments. If the takeover will be concluded, the name Crappy Cars Inc. will cease to exist and be transformed into Bar-Hahs Grittonia.

We thank you for your offer.

Also, could you tell us something about the market position of VLT in Grittonia?

Dear Miss Becker,

It has been decided that we would like to have your fine cars cruising your streets more often than they already do. The only time we see them is when some extremely wealthy individual buys one overseas and ships it back. To make your fine quality vehicles more available to our people, the Senate has voted to invite your company into our nation and set up dealerships in our major cities. We hope you agree to it.

Sincerely,

Cornelius Pureheart,

Attn: Hans Schmidt, Sales Division, VLT Automotive Group N.V.


Dear Mr. Schmidt,

Given the warm economic relations between our two countries and the wide repute of the VLT Automotive Group brands, we wish to invite your company to extend its commercial activities to the Republic of Ruccola. At present, the Ruccolian automobile market is highly concentrated, with the four largest automakers accounting for 77% of total sales, which numbered approximately 266 million units in the past twelve months. Growth is not expected to exceed 5% per annum in the coming few years, due to the mature and relatively stable nature of the market. However, we believe that a network of 310 dealerships across our nation will yield sales of 1.2 to 2.6 million units in their initial year of operation, assuming extremely conservative estimates of 0.45% to 0.97% market share, both of which are certain to increase to much more significant figures.

Naturally, VLT Automotive is also welcome to establish production facilities in Ruccola. All manufacturing activities will be subject to Ruccolian labour and environmental regulations, which I believe are not dissimilar from those of Van Luxemburg. In summary, I hope to see VLT making its presence felt on our roads and expressways and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Luisa Narniano
Minister of Commerce

We would like to welcome you to our nation and suggest that you build 2 dealerships, one in the State-R part of New Odessa, that would sells the Lepanto brand (it is the richest part of Salcania), and another one in one of the cities in the Belen Plains of State-T that sells the VLT brand (OOC: I haven't named any yet)

The market is currently at 120,000 cars/year, but our population is expanding rapidly. Most of the cars on the streets are Japanese (we license build some Japanese models), followed by Italian, Romanian/French, German, and American (made for Europe type) cars.

Subject: RE: VLT Group Market Introduction

Dear Sir,

We thank you for your interest in VLT Automotive. We are of course extremely interested in setting up business in a nation such as the Blackhelm Confederacy. We hope to establish a local distributor ('VLT Blackhelm Confederacy'), which will market VLT and VLT Commercial vehicles. Two subsidiaries, ('Monteluci di Confederazione Blackhelm' and 'Lepanto Blackhelm') will be established to take care of sales of these two separate brands. These companies will all operate from the same office, but will each guide the distribution and sales systems of their respective brands. This office will also include a showroom ( 'Flagship store') for each of the brands, where all available models will be shown. This will also be the only Lepanto dealership in your nation.

As long as there is no production facility in your nation, regular shipments will be arriving from the Grand Duchy of Van Luxemburg (or any other nation with VLT production facilities, for that matter.), in order to deliver the ordered cars and restock the showrooms in your nation. Spare parts will be delivered by separate shipments. Shipping will be handled by VLT's usual partner company, Koopmans Transporten B.V., or any of their allied shipping companies.

We wish you the best of luck and hope for a fine cooperation between your government and VLT Automotive!

The Board of Directors has decided that it will establish a factory with a capacity of 800,000 vehicles in Ruccola, where the assembly of the VLT L4 and L5 will take place. To be prepared for a future growth, a second or even third factory will be constructed later on. Per factory, 48,000 individuals will be employed.

To provide a supply of other automobiles, regular shipments will be arriving from the Grand Duchy of Van Luxemburg (or any other nation with VLT production facilities, for that matter.), in order to deliver the ordered cars and restock the showrooms in your nation.

Subject: Arrangements for brand introduction

We are pleased to here that you will set up shop in Salcania. New Odessa port has the capacity to process all imports from Van Luxemburg. Additionally, we will arrange a public drive test/drive tour of the new models on the A1 motorway (section New Odessa - Delta City) to introduce the brand. Various news and niche channels will broadcast the vent live, along with the public TV news channel (Antena Salcania). I have received news that the many aftermarket parts producers have already begun importing and designing body kits.

Best wishes, and a long lasting cooperation!

VLT to open shop in Valipac

In an important move to investors, VLT has moved to open a factory and dealerships within Valipac. The factory should supply their dealerships around Aerova, and will supply hundreds of Valipacians with work. Meanwhile, the dealerships should open to moderate success, and VLT will be in immediate contention with Lystrom for the title of largest vehicle producer within Valipac. One thing is certain, however, and that is that VLT has a long way to go if they wish to catch up with Lystrom in the rally circuits, where Lystrom's cars feature both in Haven and in Aerova.

VLT is expected to sell around 2 million cars a year in Valipac, with projected profits exceeding 12 billion dollars. These figures do not account for numbers that might be sold should VLT open dealerships in other Aerovan countries and constituencies, which the Valipacian factories would likely provide cars for. Investors in Valipac have begun bidding fervently on VLT stock, anticipating the peak it will reach when the factory and dealerships are established.

The factory is expected to open doors by January 2011, and the first models are expected to ship to dealerships by mid-march. Lystrom is anticipating the arrival of a foreign power by announcing the revamping of their primary line of cars, however their 'elite' package cares look set to stay the same, as the shipping costs incurred to VLT, who intends to produce these away from Valipac, will keep them from competing in this sector.

Meanwhile, the foreign automaker moving in to Valipac has led to renewed cries from the Social party to raise tariffs back to pre-Atlee administration levels. "This automotive giant will quickly squelch out the competition and form a monopoly," protested minority leader Gale Winthrop. "We know what can happen in an unregulated market - unfortunately, the Prime Minister doesn't seem to care". Meanwhile, Atlee's press secretary refuted the claims, and said that the new dealerships and factories would "provide much needed jobs for Valipacian citizens" and that "adding a new flavor to the consumer's diet is always a good thing." Whether the arrival of VLT turns out to be good or bad for Valipac, one thing is certain - it wouldn't have happened before this administration.

You wanted to know about the market position of VLT in Grittonia.
After some research, I have found out that VLT is only used by the Grittonia Minor Royal Family.
VLT has no other driver in Grittonia. To give you a Idea of the % of Crappy Cars Inc. in the Grittonian market I have done some research:
55% Montana Driving
25% Grittonia Cars Inc.
15% Crappy Cars Inc.
5% Everything Inc. Cars

Before you go, we would like to ask if it is possible for VLT to set up a distributor in Grittonia, perhaps based on what used to be the infrastructure used by Crappy Cars Inc? What can we expect from the Grittonian market once we set up business?

Official Corporate Communique
From the Desk of Charles Baya, Special Director of Corporate Restructuring, Marshal Anderson Group
The the Offices of VLT Automotive Group N.V. – Sales Division


On behalf of the sixth largest employer in the Democratic Colonies, I extend to you my warmest greetings.

The Marshal Anderson Group, due to temporary but daunting financial difficulties, is currently seeking to divest itself of all automotive production and retail operations. While many of our assets in these areas have already been liquidated, I am writing to you today to offer the following properties which are still available:

- The remaining dealerships of the Marshal Anderson Automotive dealership network, consisting of 5,102 automotive dealerships ready to be rebranded.
- The Democratic Colonies Advanced Tire Company, including 5 partially automated tire manufacturing facilities, each capable of producing between 15 and 20 million tires annually which translates to a combined potential gross income of over 4 billion USD annually. At this time, all 5 manufacturing facilities are fully staffed and operational.
- 3 advanced manufacturing facilities tooled for partially automated construction of various automotive parts such as headlight and other lighting assemblies, rear and side and other mirror viewing assemblies, and assorted passenger compartment components such as seats, seat belts, air bags, windows as well as manual window operating cranks and automatic window motors and control systems. At this time, none of the 3 manufacturing facilities are staffed, but experienced workers could be rehired from the ranks of previously laid off personnel.

It is the belief of myself and my associates that VLT Automotive could generate significant income with the properties currently offered. The Democratic Colonies is a market hungry for automotive innovation, with a potential consumer base approaching 14 billion persons. Last year, over 400,000,000 cars were sold nation wide, with compact cars, mid and fullsize sedans, station wagons and minivans showing particular robustness. With proper advertising and marketing support, it is widely believed that VLT Automotive could quickly seize 6 to 10 percent of the market, with sales potential of up to 40,000,000 vehicles in the first 12 months of operation.

I hope you will consider our available properties, keeping in mind both that purchasing our dealership network will save VLT Automotive time and money in comparison to developing a new dealership network, and that the Democratic Colonies Advanced Tire Company remains a profitable venture to this day with even further income potential should the right leadership make itself available.

While the acquisition cost of these properties is negotiable, I and my associates feel that 8 billion DCreds, or $15,076,800,000 in USD, would be a fair amount for all of the available properties.

Thank you for your time,
Charles Baya

Subject: RE: Takeover

Dear Sir,

We are honoured that you have chosen VLT as your primary choice for the sale of said properties. The facilities and dealerships allow us to expand into the Federated Union significantly, and will certainly be a major asset in our international operations.

The dealerships, numbering 5,102 in total, will most likely be rebranded into VLT dealerships, while some 50% will also receive a Monteluci dealership. A total of three dealerships, the most significant brand representations, will be chosen to market Lepanto motor vehicles.
The Democratic Colonies Advanced Tire Company will become a full daughter of the VLT Automotive Group, and will produce tires for the VLT vehicles delivered in the Democratic Colonies, as well as aftermarket high-performance tires, available for worldwide redistribution via the VLT network. The research and development departments of the company will be utilised to research into new technology and develop new tire compounds. Certain sections of the R&D department will also be committed to the research of F1 tire compounds, eventually resulting in the company becoming the official supplier of the Monteluci F1 team.
The parts manufacturing facilities will be put into use again immediately, and will initiate the production of VLT-related parts for 'special' markets, in which regulations regarding lighting and other automotive parts differ from those in Van Luxemburg. It will also be used to construct specialised seats for VLT vehicles, for sale in the 'heavy duty' and 'racing' markets. Parts for window operation will continue as usual, now using VLT-specific blueprints to produce for the assembly of automobiles produced by our group.

Next to this, we have initiated the required procedures for starting up a distributor in the Federated Union of Democratic Colonies. The potential of the local market seems excellent, and is extremely attractive.

In conclusion, we will gladly pay the asking price for the offered companies, and we are preparing the required amount for bank transfer now.

Hoping on a pleasant cooperation and lasting relationship with your company,
Signed,
Kristin Becker
Board of Directors
VLT Automotive Group N.V.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for doing business with us. Have a good holiday.

Before you go, we would like to ask if it is possible for VLT to set up a distributor in Grittonia, perhaps based on what used to be the infrastructure used by Crappy Cars Inc? What can we expect from the Grittonian market once we set up business?

Most of the companies are set-up by or with the consent of the Supreme Ruler, but I was his former girlfriend so I can get his permission. Crappy Cars Inc. currently has 5 factories and 200 dealerships, so you could use the infrastructure from Crappy Cars Inc..
The Grittonian market for cars is relatively large due to a large Royal Family and many rich people with carparks. I would estimate a total need of 775 million cars in Grittonia.

The Principality of Machina Haruspex is interested in the idea of hosting several dealerships to broaden our vehicle market beyond the state produced.

Our local population via polls as to what vehicles might be suitable, hover about SUV's and economy/mid range pre-luxury vehicles. There is also a desire from the nobles to have an opportunity for new luxury models and or specifically tailored transports as well over the standard military SUV's and so on.

-Number of dealerships: 7, 3 owned my government.
-Expected sales number: Average number of car salesa year is 37,926,087 cars.
-Short description of your automobile market. It is the 3rd largest industry in Justorica.The owners and staff of any dealership in Justorica are among the richest in Justorica.

-Possibility of a VLT Automotive Factory to be built in your nation. 100% chance! I would like VLT to open 4 more dealerships in Justorica. One condition, you get a some new dealerships, we get 2% of your yearly profits and you make some military jeeps, or Humvees, for the Justorican military during war time.

Subject: RE: VLT Group Market Introduction

Dear Sir,

We thank you for your interest in VLT Automotive. We are of course extremely interested in setting up business in Machina Haruspex. We hope to establish a local distributor ('VLT Machine Haruspex'), which will market VLT and VLT Commercial vehicles. Two subsidiaries, ('Monteluci di Machina Haruspex' and 'Lepanto Machine Haruspex') will be established to take care of sales of these two separate brands. These companies will all operate from the same office, but will each guide the distribution and sales systems of their respective brands. This office will also include a showroom ( 'Flagship store') for each of the brands, where all available models will be shown. This will also be the only Lepanto dealership in your nation.

As long as there is no production facility in your nation, regular shipments will be arriving from the Grand Duchy of Van Luxemburg (or any other nation with VLT production facilities, for that matter.), in order to deliver the ordered cars and restock the showrooms in your nation. Spare parts will be delivered by separate shipments. Shipping will be handled by VLT's usual partner company, Koopmans Transporten B.V., or any of their allied shipping companies.

We wish you the best of luck and hope for a fine cooperation between your government and VLT Automotive!

Signed,
Hans Schmidt

Dear Sir/Madam,

We thank you for your interest in VLT Automotive. We are of course extremely interested in setting up business in Justorica. We hope to establish a local distributor ('VLT Justorica'), which will market VLT and VLT Commercial vehicles. Two subsidiaries, ('Monteluci di Justorica' and 'Lepanto Justorica') will be established to take care of sales of these two separate brands. These companies will all operate from the same office, but will each guide the distribution and sales systems of their respective brands. This office will also include a showroom ( 'Flagship store') for each of the brands, where all available models will be shown. This will also be the only Lepanto dealership in your nation.

VLT hopes to establish a single factory with a total capacity of 800,000 vehicles per year, employing some 50,000 indviduals. Production lines for the VLT L9 and L10 will be prepared for this factory. Currently, this is the only factory that will be constructed on Justorican soil.

We can confirm that 3 dealerships can be owned by a public company. The remaining 4 dealership positions will be handed out to private individuals by the local distributor. 2% of the profits of these 4 dealerships will be repaid to the Justorican government.

We are however not in a position to offer free military vehicles to any nation. We currently produce a military 4x4, the Monteluci M6, which is primarily in use with the Van Luxemburger Arméi. The sales of these vehicles are tightly regulated by the Ministry of Defence and the Van Luxemburger intelligence agency (IVD), and thus we cannot offer you any price cuts. They will need to be bought via the offices of Monteluci S.p.A. in Venezia, Van Luxemburg, and will be produced at the Monteluci facilities in the same city. As said before, export is regulated by the government of the Grand Duchy.

For models who are not produced in your nation, regular shipments will be arriving from the Grand Duchy of Van Luxemburg (or any other nation with VLT production facilities, for that matter.), in order to deliver the ordered cars and restock the showrooms in your nation. Spare parts will be delivered by separate shipments. Shipping will be handled by VLT's usual partner company, Koopmans Transporten B.V., or any of their allied shipping companies.

We wish you the best of luck and hope for a fine cooperation between your government and VLT Automotive!
