    Enligt avtal med en befintlig partner om en planet under utveckling skall MindArk tillföras
    betalningar om sammanlagt 2,15 miljoner USD i utbyte mot en högre vinstdelningsprocent.
    MindArk har fram till och med maj erhållit 0,55 miljoner USD. Resterande 1,6 miljoner USD skall
    tillföras MindArk månadsvis under 2010 och första kvartalet av 2011.
    Under an existing agreement with partners on a planet in progress shall MindArk get payments totaling 2.15 million U.S. dollars in exchange for a higher profit percentage.
    MindArk has until May received 0.55 million USD. The remaining $ 1.6 million being payed on a monthly basis during 2010 and first quarter of 2011.


    Looks like one of the planetdevelopers has gotten themself a better deal than the 50/50 deal with MA.

    Sale of Planet Calypso is a very good move as new owner might have the cash required to do some serious marketing effort.
    Can you name me 1 MMO/Virtual world that 'seriously' markets their product? Name 1.

    Aside from the occasional Mr. T commercial MMOs aren't marketed. They rely on word of mouth. No investor is going to spend $6m to buy into a game and then spend more money to advertise.

    These investors are looking for easy money. They are going to give FPC money to keep them afloat and if these investors are right they will reap 50% of future profits.

    That means FPC must operate on 50% less profits moving forward. If they have cash flow problems now - how's it going to be with half the profits already spoken for?

    A few considerations :
    1) The value of the fixed assets includes a surplus of 15 million for the platform in 2009 which is made of transfers from the costs of ce2 introduction and add-ons made to sustain new planets portability. This value is only financial.
    2) The loss that came from exchange differences is significant.
    3) The value of 6.2 million seems to have been payed, additionally to the staff costs, for the development of CE2.
    4) MA cannot hold on to Calypso on a platform it owns cause it lacks credibility from investors.
    5) The staff costs are huge.
    6) I would recommend that several minerals and mobs from calypso to be moved on another planets in order to "force" a displacement of the calypsian population to incipient worlds. Any new world will otherwise suffer from a very slow start. And that is utterly undesirable for any investor.

    I will face my fear.I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. -- Bene Gesserit litany --

    If that is what they mean, I am still not sure if they mean that FPC/new company will split 50/50 or new company/MA will...?

    If FPC and new company are splitting 50/50 it will be like:

    FPC gets 25%
    New gets 25%
    MA gets 50%

    It won't matter as much to their bottom line because they can just build another planet for themselves to call home and give to TPC - Third Planet Company, etc.

    I would recommend that several minerals and mobs from calypso to be moved on another planets in order to "force" a displacement of the calypsian population to incipient worlds. Any new world will otherwise suffer from a very slow start. And that is utterly undesirable for any investor.
    I would recommend that any such maneuver be done by REMOVING the fee to transport your avatar to another planet. That FEE is utterly undesirable to anyone who might want to move between planets often.

    Understandably there are some questions raised due to the annual report. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the FPC part - yet. What I can say is that the future for FPC and Planet Calypso is looking brighter than ever.

    FPC will be bought by the "new" as in (FPC=New) gets 50%, MA gets 50%.
