GDRC: Stock Exchange [IC Financial News Thread]

Postby Nova Orontes » Mon Mar 01, 2021 6:43 pm



Quick note about the nature of the GDSE and this thread:

ICly, the GDSE is an auction-based stock exchange that caters to the region's largest companies, with the intention of facilitating intra-regional capitalization. It also publishes its own index, although others with their own formulas undoubtedly exist, which is weighted for market capitalization and other variables, including price and volatility. This thread is not meant to set prices or mimic a free capital market, the machinery of the auction operates in the background. Rather, this thread is meant as a financial news thread specific to the companies who claim membership to the GDSE. Every player in Greater Díenstad is eligible for at least one company on the GDSE, and the longer you've been around the more companies you are likely eligible for.


Who we are and membership criteria:

The Greater Díenstad Stock Exchange (GDSE) is an exclusive exchange where select firms and brokers can buy and sell stock securities. Founded by the Greater Díenstadi Stock Exchange (GDSE) Act, its membership is constrained to firms that fulfill the following criteria —

  1. Eligible companies must already have a minimum of 15 million publicly traded shares on a major domestic stock market.
  2. The value of publicly traded shares must have a market capitalization of at least 1.4 billion.
  3. A share listed on the GDSE must have a minimum value of $4 share.
  4. A fee of $0.001 will be charged on all listings and, therefore, transactions.

Additional OOC criteria: What truly determines membership? After all, we can just claim that countless of our national companies are large enough to meet those criteria. To avoid any possible and innovative abuse of this thread and institution, players are capped to the number of companies they can claim sell shares in the GDSE. The cap is entirely based on seniority, which on NationStates is measurable through population, and the advantage of seniority steeply declines as population numbers get into the billions.

Population caps are —

  • 5–500 million — 1
  • 500 to 1 billion — 2
  • 1–5 billion — 3
  • 6–15 billion — 4
  • 15–30 billion — 5
  • 30 billion+ — 6

Membership roll:

To submit for membership, you may use the following template and reply to this thread. OOCly, players are held to an honor code as to whether their company meets the IC criteria. Rejection is almost entirely based on whether you've already met your quota based on OOC population criteria. You may delist and introduce new companies, and this should be done through in-character roleplay. The new company can apply using the following template after the old company has roleplayed its delisting and this has been acknowledged by the OP.

Please submit one company at a time.

Code: Select all

Share prices:

As mentioned in the opening paragraph, we do not intend to simulate a free capital market in real-time. Furthermore, objectively and accurately assessing the value of a stock would require access to equally as objective and accurate fundamentals that don't exist on NationStates, since this is a world of fiction where we make up most of our statistics. Therefore, the simulation of share price is not something that we plan on getting into.

That being said, share prices is something a lot of players are likely going to want to reference. This is okay and expected.

How is share price computed? In the real world, share prices are a complex function of many variables: current earnings, expected earnings, revenue, non-revenue growth financials, et cetera. Furthermore, share prices often take their cue from the movement of other financial instruments, such as futures, and how they are manipulated. You are free to justify whatever share price based on the window dressing you've developed for your firm(s), however to avoid contests of "who has the biggest company," "who is financially superior," and all other possible iterations of muscle contests, it's important to understand that share price is not a measure of total financial strength or company size. Having a higher share price doesn't necessarily make your company better. At its most basic, the initial offering price of a share is more-or-less the value of the total amount of company wealth that it is willing to sell, divided by the total amount of shares its selling for control of this wealth. So, if you are selling about $7 million worth of your company wealth to raise capital, and you're selling 1 million shares, then the price per share will be roughly $7. This will fluctuate in accordance with supply and demand, but this is roughly speaking how your share price would be computed. Notice what the share price doesn't tell you — how much of the company's total weal that $7 million represents. Thus, the share price or the number of shares is not indicative at all of the firm's bigger picture.

Accelafeed Announces Nos & Que Pasa Acquisitions
Press release © Accelafeed

Image

BEDA FROMM — Accelafeed, the social media giant, announces the acquisition of Nos and Que Pasa, two of the largest cross-platform messaging applications used in the Golden Throne. Acquisition of Nos will cost around Ŗ36 billion, including Ŗ10 billion in cash and Ŗ26 billion in shares. Que Pasa's acquisition will be for Ŗ13 billion, including Ŗ3 billion in cash and Ŗ10 billion in shares. Accelafeed has also agreed to set aside Ŗ1.5 billion of restricted stock for both Nos and Que Pasa, to be granted to the two platforms' founders and employees. The restricted stock will vest over a period of four years. The two acquisitions form part of Accelafeed's path toward capturing a greater share of the instant messaging market, especially in the recently integrated developing economies of the Zarbian and Havenic territories, as well as Nicaro and other integrating imperial markets.

Nos is one of the largest private encrypted messaging services in the imperial provinces and Guffingford, as well as one of the largest Macabéan messaging services used outside the Golden Throne. With its tens of billions of inhabitants, the imperial provinces represent a significant market. The size of this market and the prospect of potentially more than doubling the monthly user base justify the cost of Ŗ36 billion (or roughly $72 billion USD).* Current, Nos:

  • Has over 5 billion monthly users;
  • 60% of user base messages on a daily basis;
  • Messaging volume greater than imperial SMS volume;
  • Currently adding over 2.7 million users a day.

Que Pasa is a messaging app originally founded in Santiago, Zarbia after the country's annexation by the Golden Throne. Post-annexation, the app has seen rapid expansion in a country characterized by limited connectivity and access to the internet up to recently. With the territory's infrastructure improving, and especially with newfound connectivity through Proyekt Liberty, the growth expectations for the app are high. Furthermore, thanks to the facilitation of trade, migration, and capital flow between Zarbia and Nicaro, the app's user base has been rapidly growing among the latter. Another Zarbian-speaking area within the Golden Throne is encompassed within the Havenic Territories of Levante, Belmonte, and Castilla. Que Pasa has made inroads into these economies, although it faces stiffer resistance from local competitors who have thrived under imperial rule over the past decade. Entrance into the Havenic Territories, however, comes with a greater introduction to the economy of Safehaven. As a subsidiary of Accelafeed, Que Pasa is looking to capture an international market of Zarbian-, Mokan- and speakers of like languages.**

Both Nos and Que Pasa are advertisement-free, a feature that Accelafeed intends to keep. However, both apps will be integrated into the larger digital eCommerce ecosystem that Accelafeed is building through its strategic acquisitions and partnerships. Accelafeed believes that apps like these will facilitate online transactions between brands and their customers. "Accelafeed is the storefront," says Accelafeed CEO Al'Lanko Fedema, "Nos, Que Pasa, and others are the cash register."***

Revenue is expected to be impacted in two other ways. First, integration with Accelafeed will promote the social platform to markets it currently has limited access to, due to the poor state of infrastructure until recently. Second, data acquired through Nos and Que Pasa will be leveraged to improve targeting capabilities for advertisers using Accelafeed's advertising and eCommerce platforms. The data will be available through proxy parameters that protect the raw data's fundamental privacy. Also looking to gain from new data is Accelafeed's algorithms that govern its social feed and digital shopping space.

Upon closing the deal, all outstanding shares of Nos and Que Pasa capital stock and options to purchase Nos and Que Pasa capital stock will be canceled in exchange for Ŗ13 billion cash and Ŗ46 billion in Accelafeed common stock. In the event of the termination of the merger agreement, Accelafeed agrees to pay Nos Ŗ500 million in cash and Ŗ500 million in Accelafeed common stock. The same agreement is agreed with Que Pasa.

Accelafeed will host a shareholders-only press conference streamable on accelafeed.tgt/acquisitions.


*For reference, Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp cost $16 billion ($4 in cash, $12 in shares). WhatsApp had a rapidly growing user base of around 500 million in 2014, but the acquisition price would factor in the expected user growth rate. WhatsApp is currently at 2 billion monthly users, it reached 1 billion by 2017 — let's say that it expected a monthly user base of 1 billion. The estimated population of the imperial provinces is at the time of this post's publishing between 20–22 billion, we can call it 20. If the monthly usage of WhatsApp is about 25% of the global population and assumed a similar ratio for the Imperial Provinces, that would be 5 billion monthly users in the Imperial Provinces. That number should be adjusted upward because the percentage of usage would also skew up, given that Nos is probably more popular in the Golden Throne than elsewhere. It also does not include usage in the provinces or international usage. 25% of the Golden Throne's population is 9.5 billion. I assume acquisition cost doesn't necessarily scale linearly with user base, so I used the smaller number of 5 billion (5 times higher than WhatsApp's assumed expected user base of 1 billion). That's where the $72 billion USD figure comes from (14×5), adjusted up a little, and just in case the acquisition cost should be larger I made the ratio of cash to share higher for Vos than for Facebook. Basically, more liquidity in favor of a lesser long-run price.

** Spanish.

MONEY TALK!: The White Gold of Mokastana and PUF investments
EPISODE 24 TRANSCRIPT
Transcribed by: Louis Volga (@Louis_Volga_FDP)
March 5th, 20XX 2:45 PM | Fedela, The Golden Throne




Montana Incorporated

Welcome back to Money Talk, where today we are discussing the new Mokan stocks on the Greater Dienstad Stock Exchange. So obviously, we all knew Montana Incorporated was going to be listed. If you've done any legal recreational pharmaceuticals, or needed a prescription for painkillers in Greater Dienstad, odds are it was a Montana Incorporated product. With the number of places you can currently buy Montana Stock, putting it on the GDSE is just a formality at this point.

But if you wanted to get in on the Montana train, now is the time. The company announced that with their introduction to the GDSE, they plan on releasing TWENTY MILLION shares at a starting price of $16,000 Universal Standards each for trading on the GDSE.

Now look, Montana Inc is a solid long term investment with decent annual dividends, 540 in Universal Standard for common and 600 for preferred. The price did take a hit when the Nicaro and Firmador drug trade picked up, but after a bad fungus tore through their coca plantations, Nicaro and Firmador production is dead in the water. I've heard that Montana is interested in buying up impacted farms at overvalued prices to reduce future impact on their bottom lines.

If that's true, invest in Montana now and hold on. If Montana gets a sizable portion of Nicaro and Firmador under its thumb, then they will be effectively unmatchable in the recreational pharmaceutical market.

Now a bit of trivia, did you know, that Montana Incorporated only owns 23% of the farms it grows it's products on? The vast majority of Montana's suppliers are actually small independent farms growing products for their own profit. This is because, legally, in the PUF anyways, Montana Incorporated is not allowed to own more than one fourth of their raw material production. The reasoning behind that is long and complicated, but what that means is that starting branches in Nicaro and Firmador would be far more profitable for Montana.

I cannot imagine Montana not taking advantage of the situation in Nicaro and Firmador to ensure long term progress, especially with a cutthroat executive such as Arianna Lomengo in charge of Montana's western expansion. Buy now and get in while they are still sinking money into acquisitions.


Pharmacy Farmers Financial

Now, turning back to Mokastana, let's talk about Pharmacy Farmers Financial. As we stated earlier, Montana Incorporated is supplied by lots of small independent farms that Montana cannot legally buy, but what do you do when you're a small farmer, have one powerful customer, who also owns the bank, and you need a loan? That's right, you get together with a bunch of your friends and start your own bank, aka Pharmacy Farmers Financial, aka PFF.

PFF owns no actual farmland, and instead acts as a line of credit for independent farm companies that need to finance their own growth and expansions. Let's say Farmer Pedro owns his own little plantation to grow… meditation aids… he joins the PFF and pays an annual membership fee, then when he needs a new tractor, PFF gives him a great rate on a loan with generous repayment plan options.

Now I know what you're thinking, why doesn't the PFF just finance its own coca refineries and take over Montana? Well, besides the obvious of trying to strong arm a company that has its own military, bank, and the local government in its pocket, it turns out Montana Inc has the economies of scale to continue to be the best place to sell raw products. In the PUF, taxes on raw coca and other medicinal drugs are relatively low, while the taxes on refined medicinal drugs are as high as some end users. Not to mention the licensing fees, regulations, the Department of Pharmacy and Controlled Substances who doesn't fuck around, and the actual capital cost of building a refinery. Montana already has all of that taken care of, and has always bought at fair market prices, so it's easier to sell the goods directly to them, than to try to become a small time rival, and deal with the additional government red tape to make drugs.

So, what makes PFF a good investment? Well, this is the first time it is opening up shares to non Mokan residents, and they will be investing in foreign markets themselves. PFF specializes in agriculture industry financing, and will no doubt be expanding to rural communities outside of the Federation soon. Plus, I expect PFF to start listing EFTs and Mutual Funds of their own on the GDSE as time progresses. I don't expect this to be a magic bullet to prosperity, but I can see over time the PFF growing in value as it diversifies its financial holdings across Greater Dienstad. Opening at 2800 US, PFF is much more affordable for those looking to invest in Mokan pharmaceutical production.

PUF AG/IND FUND ETF

Speaking of, PFF's first Exchange Traded Fund, the PUF Agriculture / Industry Fund, or PUF AG/IND FUND ETF, will hit the market soon. This EFT invests in many PUF companies, such as Tenoch Tractor Works, Sokaye Mechanized Industries, Cintli Farms, and more. Now, we all know, nobody imports cars from Mokastana, but they do make decent industrial vehicles. It probably helps that a lot of these tractor companies are also military contractors, building tanks and such for the Federal Army.

At 670 US a share, this Fund is probably the cheapest way to invest in the Mokan economy, but we did notice one particular thing of note. 15% of PUF AG/IND FUND is invested in Valle Zuma Engines, compared to their PUF AUTO IND FUND where Valle Zuma Engines makes up a full 30%. What's unusual is that Valle Zuma isn't a tractor/truck company, sure it builds trucks and has military contracts like every automotive company in the PUF, but it also builds race cars. Valle Zuma is staying quiet, but we have reason to believe that we may see a Mokan built race car hit the international market soon.

Now if nobody buys Mokan cars, why should we care about Mokan Race cars? I'll tell you why: Rich and bored Cartel members. The current CEO of Valle Zuma Engines owns numerous high end sports cars buys them by the dozen, for the past 10 years, Valle Zuma has been hiring foreign engineers, importing foreign goods and been operating at a loss more years than not. The only thing keeping it afloat was it's military contracts and cartel investors. But it looks like that 10 years of research is beginning to pay off, at least judging by how much PFF is investing in it.

International investment in Valle Zuma is still not open, but investing in the PUF AG/IND FUND ETF may grant intentional investors a minor loophole to enjoy some of that upswing if things go well.

Navitek: Contract for the Reconstruction of Datosk's Port Will be Honored by the Golden Throne
Press release © Navitek

Image
TARGUL FRUMOS — "Navitek's contract in Krasnova will 'roll over' in the event of the port city's occupation by the Golden Throne," said the company's CFO Lang Kristalis. The announcement comes as a battle unfolds around Datosk for control of the major port city of western Krasnova. With a long-term potential cost of over Ŗ20 billion, the port's reconstruction represents one of Navitek's largest contract, responsible as it is for almost every aspect of the infrastructure's rehabilitation. Furthermore, Kristalis confirmed that the Imperial Bureaucracy will discuss the contract's expansion upon the city's successful liberation, given the extensive damage already wrought on Datosk's port facilities as a result of Ordenite scorched earth tactics. The city is due to become the second-most important port for the Triumvirate war effort and in the post-war.

Reconstruction will have to begin nearly from zero. Originally begun after the re-occupation of Krasnova by the Fourth Reich, progress allowed for the port's reopening. But, this progress has been thrown in reverse and almost completely erased as a result of the war. The bombardment of Datosk has been 'round-the-clock since the end of the so-called Battle of Crowns' Sea and the permanent placement of imperial fleet groups off the Krasnovan coastline. But, damage from bombardment has been minor compared to the widespread destruction caused by the Ordenite dynamiting of almost all port infrastructure and related facilities. Anticipating the city's fall to imperial troops, the Wehrmacht and Krasnovan military coordinated the sabotage to deny Datosk's immediate use to the Triumvirate. According to observers reporting from the frontlines and public satellite imagery, very little of the port is left intact, most of it in ruins. Indeed, eyewitnesses have compared it to the city's nuclear bombing during the second war, the scars of which are still visible throughout its wartorn urban landscape.

Revenue flow from the contract originally ended as a result of the war, but now flows in small numbers as Navitek has placed the necessary resources to begin reconstruction immediately after receiving approval from Fuermak authorities. Company representatives are on the ground now, behind the frontlines of course, organizing teams on the ground to conduct preliminary analyses in preparation for the larger project.

The Datosk contract represented Navitek's largest financial partnership with the Fourth Reich, originally sanctioned by the Imperial Bureaucracy. The company's relationship with the latter was admittedly strained because of ambiguities regarding the legal status of Jumanota, a piece of Panooly territory under Navitek's jurisdiction for four years. Jumanota has since been legally ceded to Holy Panooly, which recently upgraded its status within the imperial federation to that of territory. Allowing Navitek to retain its Datosk contract is a sign of goodwill and renewed trust between imperial authorities and the company. It follows in the path of the recent partial awarding of the Potthan base construction project to Navitek earlier in the year. The company has also been extensively involved in ongoing work to maintain the expanded Fedorograd port facilities open in the face of enemy artillery and aerial bombardment.

A spokesperson with the Fuermak confirmed that "Navitek has been a crucial partner in ensuring the safety and the ongoing flow of our logistics into the Satrapy of Pezlevko-Rubino. Private partners like Navitek form an important part of our war effort, and we will need their services more than ever as we land more personnel and equipment into the Krasnovan theater."

Company financials remain strong year-over-year, growing by a vibrant 43 percent. Its stock and bond assets on various open markets have responded similarly. And Navitek's position as the largest construction and infrastructure firm in the Golden Throne, and perhaps Greater Díenstad — where it is, if not, one of the largest —, is further reinforced and bolstered by these new contract acquisitions.

The company will host a shareholders-only press conference, live streamable on https://navitek.tgt/townhall.

— Jumanota Canal set to open in less than two years, finalizing one of the company's largest, most expensive programs in history. Construction began in 2026 and will cost roughly Ŗ300 billion in total by the project's end.

Pythia: Ordenite Operations Now Organized Under Subsidiary, Seherin
Press release © Pythia

Image


MACABEA — Pythia, the Macabéan internet giant, will reorganize all of its Ordenite operations under its new subsidiary, Seherin. This action has been done to bring the company in alignment with Ordenite regulations concerning foreign investment in their country, according to Pythia leadership. Furthermore, the corporate reorganization comes simultaneous to the expansion of Pythia's commercial interests in that country. Although key details must be kept secret under contractual obligation to the government in Berlina, the new deal reportedly encompasses data clearinghouse services for the Ordenite government.

Operations now under the corporate management of Seherin include Pythia's search engine. Formerly at pythia.uwo, the search engine has moved to seherin.uwo. As part of its general search engine department, this includes its ad space department responsible for most of the company's revenue. Last year, ad revenue from Pythia search space within United World Order alone amounted to Ŗ180 billion. This is expected to grow to Ŗ200 billion by the year's end, and to Ŗ400 billion by next year's end. Seherin will become the only search engine formally available within the Ordenite Reich and will be powered by algorithm technology related to the Pythia original, but unique to Seherin and the needs of its Ordenite consumer base. Seherin will not be accessible outside of Ordena and Ordenite holdings.

Also organized under Seherin is the new social welfare department, formed as part of a wider initiative to partner with the Ordenite government in its efforts to better provide for the basic needs of its people through data analysis and machine learning. Related to its search engine, which will form part of the wider social algorithm, this project's scope goes well beyond search. It includes the provision of welfare and the allocation of credit to the most deserving citizens, as well as that of security by better anticipating and responding to crime. Due to national cybersecurity concerns, the complete nature of the Ordenite social algorithm is veiled behind necessary secrecy. Regardless, this new partnership represents a highly profitable venture that will benefit shareholders. Pythia's broader consumer base will benefit as new technologies developed by Seherin can be applied to all of Pythia's products.

Seherin will be led by Tilmann Ehrler, CFO. In anticipation of the launch announcement, Tilmann said, "Seherin represents a magnificent opportunity for Pythia to reach deeper into the Ordenite market. We expect greater search efficiency and better integration of search with the overall social structure of the Ordenite state, built as always with its people's security in mind. I am honored to be part of this company and part of the general advancement of the Ordenite people. Our mission is to provide the people of Ordena with search results and advertisement that meets commonly accepted criteria of quality, truthfulness, and relevance."

Also unveiled is Seherin's corporate motto, "Data for the people."

"We are out to prove," said Ehrler, in a separate press conference that included the Reich's top political brass, "that big data is compatible with responsible government. We have seen how technology interacts with decadence, and how this interaction can lead to a disgruntled society, and at Seherin that is exactly what we seek to prevent through our commitment to the advancement of the Ordenite state."

Pythia shares ownership with the Ordenite state, split 50/50.


OTHER COMPANY NEWS

— Pythia rolls out new updates eliminating sidebar ad space and expanding the top and bottom ad pack by one or two.

— Pythia ousts Jeroomla from data clearinghouse union after Jeroomla is caught selling internal data to an unauthorized party, against union regulations.

— New partnership launched with DíenBank to improve the clearinghouse union's international bond securitization program by better assessing risk independently of third party credit rating agencies.
