Can anyone explain the calculation for Value per Share?
Each company has 10 blocks of 1,000 shares for a total of 10,000 shares. The game seems to be dividing (in error?) by roughly 100,000 for Value/Share. Still, the calculation is off. From my current game:
Player / Total Value / Value per Share / "Missing" Value
P1 / 801,652 / 7.38 / 63,652
P2 / 549,836 / 5.50 / -164
P3 / 629,403 / 6.10 / 19,403
P4 / 538,164 / 5.37 / 1,164
The numbers are off dramatically immediately following a buyout. I played on and after P1 bought out P4 the tooltip shows:
Total Value: 1,521,781 (implies actual value/share of 15.21)
Value/Share: 9.20 (implies "missing" value of 601,781)
Any ideas on what other factors are at play? Is the calculation being done correctly?
