The furious merger activities between Eve Corporations have disappeared. Truly, the bubble has burst, at least for me.
Today, I was "restructured" out of my corporation of some time now, the universal financial conglomerate, Starigroup (Ticker S).
Apparently, my financial sophistication, in-depth knowledge of capital markets, and gritty knack for wheel and deal trades were no longer needed. I've worked on no less than 3 lucrative deals for them:
1) The Techell IPO [gotta give myself props]
2) The Roden Shipyards - Quafe merger [sadly, this led to fat Gallente pilots, but honestly, they weren't exactly supermodels before...]
3) TTI Bond Issue 4567 [who knew that they'd be junk bonds!?]
The above three deals, netting my corporation hundreds of millions of isk, I guess, just wasn't enough to keep letting me work 80 hours a week...
Excuses for my firing included something about a non-existent capital market, no stock exchanges, and a general meaninglessness of stock shares in corporations. So what if an IPO gives you meaningless stocks? It's how business has been done for thousands of years!
Hey, at least I got a nice severance package. Nothing less than 3000 shares in Starigroup. Pretty worthless if you ask me, but I guess I can always use them as toilet paper, like I did with my TTI bonds and Moo IOU slips.
At least I got a brand new Caldari shuttle to move my personal belongings into by 5PM tonight!
Such is the way of life in the universal investment banking world. My advice to you: stay out of the financial sector of EVE. I should've listened to my mother and become a scordite miner.
