Greetings


Milliways Invest are currently looking to increase our capital with 2 bil isk. The money will be used, partly to cover the expenses attached to our PAD-services, and partly to expand our capacity for trading within empire.
Bonds will pay out 11% of the isk invested, once a month for two months.
At the end of this period all isk invested will be returned to the investors.

Minimum investment: 100m
Maximum investment: 500m

Bonds will be sold at a first come, first served basis until the 2 billion are raised. Purchase of this bond is possible from now on and until the 3rd of April 11:59 p.m. GMT. The bonds purchased will then pay out the 3rd of May and the 3rd of June. Isk invested will also be returned to the investors the 3rd of June.

In the interest of keeping our shareholders and bond-owners informed, Milliways publish a newsletter every 2 weeks with updates on our business situation. Older issues of these newsletters can be found here.

If you are interested - post in this thread or contact Milliways’ CEO, Piscus, ingame. If you decide to purchase this bond the isk you choose to Invest should be transfered to my alt; Pacidnah along with an evemail specifying the amount transfered.

For information about Milliways Invest please read below.

As I know some of the people that prowl these forums have serious trust issues (and without a doubt, for good reasons) I will try to address some of your concerns here.


First off, a little information about myself and a lot of information about Milliways Invest:

I started my first character the 1st of March 2007 and I have been fiddling with the art of trading in one form or another since then. In late 2007 I started investing isk in trading on behalf of a few personal friends of mine. The profit was high, both for me and my investors, and this is what gave me the idea for Milliways Invest.
Initially I kept Milliways Invest as a private corporation and it was really no more than a formalized version of the investing I had previously done on behalf of my friends. After some time, and calculations, I concluded that it would be more profitable to turn Milliways Invest into a joint-stock company. This enabled me to keep the invested isk, in theory, indefinitely (or at least as long as people were satisfied with their dividends) and thus make long-term investments resulting in larger profits for myself and my investors.
Therefore I created 500.000 shares and decided on a share value of 8000 isk pr. share. The shares, with a combined value of 4 bil isk, were sold the same day as they were released, a lot of them bought by the owner of WAPC, Bogir, of whom I had previously bought T2 items in bulk on numerous occasions.
Since the shares were released in mid-February, dividends have been paid out twice a month and so far 33,86% of the initial share value have been repaid to the shareholders. On top of this, Milliways invest have increased its NAV with 16,8% and the Milliways shares are now worth 9343 isk a piece.

Recently Milliways Invest have successfully launched a PAD-service and although we only have a few customers at present, these are returning customers and are, as such, generating an excellent weekly income.

Now to the obvious question: Why are Milliways Invest going public with this bond?
For two reasons:
1. As of right now roughly half of our funds are tied up in the weekly fulfilling of PAD-orders and in our freighter which we use for this, and for trading purposes. The isk invested in [MINV] Bonds would therefore mainly be used for expanding our main business, which is high sec. trading.
2. I wish Milliways Invest to be a known and trusted corporation so that I may, in the future, be able to make real some of my grander business ideas with help and advice from this community.


For more information about Milliways Invest please visit www.milliwayscorp.com


I will now pass on the word to what I expect will be a lot of criticism (hopefully positive), and questioning of my trustworthiness as is customary in this forum. All I ask is that you please keep it civil.
I will be here to answer all questions to the best of my ability and I assure you that should I not answer straight away it is because I am at work or asleep.

Thank you for your time,

Pacidnah

Not everyone lives by the forums. In fact, I could argue that going by the English custom, April fools ended almost 12 hours before this post.

I understand how timezones work, it was 07:15 in Tokyo, 02:15 in Dubai, 18:15 here in Boston and a lot of other times in a lot of other places and to avoid having a bunch of bickering about timezones we just use GMT on this forum and according to it, "Posted - 2008.04.01 22:15:00"

I been using Milliways Invest for a while now, first investments now holding stock. It has been a very pleasant and reliable experience. Isk has been on time and the amount recieved have lived up to all agreements, and on several occasions more than the expected amount.

To be honest, this is a perfect bank loan situation. Why dont you save yourself all the extra work and headache and just get a 2 billion loan that will cost you less in interest?

For two reasons TheVad.

1. I want to, as stated in my second post, to show the public that I can be trusted with their hard earned isk - This is the way to do it. If I just wanted 2 bil I could transfer them from my pvp char who has roughly 3 bil available to him.

2. I wouldn't trust my competition with my full api-key (I know at least Ebank requires this for a loan). Besides, as far as I know bank loans require collateral and that is not something I can afford due to the nature of my business. I buy low and sell high and usually all the items I purchase is moved on within a week. The only valuable fixed asset Milliways own is our freighter, and we need that for our businesses.

I see this bond offer as relatively high risk due to the lack of a public track record, the returns do however reflect this.

I'll take a small punt on this to the tune of 200m.


tt

edit; may I suggest that if you are requesting a confirmation e-mail that you set your CSPA charge to 0, I know its not a lot, I just think it would be good manners.
