370.12 // InterCore future uncertain in unexpected sell-off

Stock market analysts were perplexed this morning following the unexpected buy-out of InterCore, an action that has had repercussions for many businesses in the same sectors. This news comes in spite of recent rises in quarterly profits for the conglomerate.

InterCore is the parent company of over eleven smaller companies around the Core and Mid Rim, mostly specialising in energy and research. Rumors speculated that InterCore was the side project of ex-Xycal Corp CEO. Xycal Corp, as many may remember, has been struggling to claw back profits following a devastating stock value drop in 358.28 ABY after the Seltos water contamination fiasco.

No statement has been provided for the sell-off of InterCore from any of the leadership, nor the confirmation of the new buyer. More details as they arrive.

370.01 // Mandalorian Farms Have Record Year

Speaking from his family home on Concord Dawn, Mandalore the Rebuilder, Asdral Gev, mentions the high yields and profits from the Mandalorian farm worlds.

“This past year, with the help of our allies in both the Republic and the Empire, we have been able to bolster our crop production by more than double. We are committed to continue our part of the treaties we have, with not only assisting in rebuilding war torn planets, but also resupplying them.”

Mandalore has been making trade deals and working with several neighboring planets to help bolster this agricultural growth, as well as help from a new division of MandalMotors, MandalAgriProductions. A large number of immigrants have been noted moving to work in Mandalorian space as well.

The Mandalorians previously signed treaties with both major galactic states, assuring their help in rebuilding Imperium ravaged planets in exchange for open trading routes.

While still struggling, the Mandalorian government has almost doubled their gross galactic product.

News from FreiTek’s headquarters on Fresia, Executive Nei Ving announces a partnership with the Jedi Order to supply the Order’s new fleet of E3R E-Wing Escorts.

In a press conference held in the famous FreiTek R&D hangar, Ving announced alongside several high ranking members of the Jedi Order’s famous ‘Ace Squadron,’ that the Order has agreed to phase out their existing fleet of personal fighter craft in favor for the recent developed and released E3R E-Wings.

Rumors had been spreading that the Order had been sending our emissaries to many companies to find a new ship to replace their aging, but iconic ‘Jedi Star Fighter,’ the Kuat Drive Yards’ ETX-80. No comment from KDY on the new contract.

The new deal is expected to deliver unknown amount of ships to the Jedi Order, as well as 15 years of parts and maintenance. It is unknown what cost the Jedi Order has paid for this new contract, but the FreiTek stock jumped up 25 points with the announcement.

358.28 // Xycal Corp recovering stock plummets as CEO steps down.

xycal

Galactic energy powerhouse Xycal Corp was thrown into disarray earlier today when it was announced that CEO Consu Xycal would step down with immediate effect.

Whilst there isn’t any official comment from Xycal Corp or Mr Xycal, it is reported that a disagreement between the CEO and the Board of Directors over the company’s attitude on corporate social responsibility towards the planets they’re based on led to a breakdown in communication.

As a result, it was yet more bad news for Xycal Corp shareholders. When the Galactic Stock Exchange opened on Coruscant this morning, Xycal Corp’s stock dropped by 12%, wiping out a cycle’s worth of solid recovery after being cleared by the Senate around its waste management.

Whilst it is expected that one of Mr Xycal’s older siblings will step into the role, there is no doubt that Mr Xycal will be a difficult figure to replace. Intensely popular with his employees, he is the only Xycal in generations to have personally visited every site owned by Xycal Corp.

His last act as CEO was to sign over the controversial Seritif Point power plant to the city for a single credit, allowing the plant to be investigated further or even potentially shut down.

Xycal Corp will recover in time; the energy titan simply too large for a single person to affect it for too long. As for Mr Xycal, he surely won’t be short of job offers.
