(Quantar Corridor)Cromforge Enterprises (TRISE:CROM) announced today that is is planning to scrap thousands of units of it massive equipment inventory on all Quantar Stations. “When inventory does not move, it not only has to be stored — it also has to be maintained,” said Cromforge spokesperson Cila Rotup’uh. “It is a huge expense, and one we can no longer sustain. The fact is that we have sold exactly ten Harvesters in the last six months. We have an inventory of more than 1,700. And that’s just a single example.”
The inventory reduction is not expected to have any immediate impact on pilots. It will be reported as a one-time expense in Cromforge’s Quarterly Results, which were already expected to be poor, resulting in a net-profit decline in each of the last six quarters.
Outpost (TRI-FP) – In what appear to be totally independent actions, pilots working for Tens and Piney as well as Cromforge Enterprises launched successful raids against a warehouse being used by competitor OPL at Outpost station.
“It is a shame that Cromforge and T&P have decided to turn this peaceful challenge into a dirty war,” stated OPL spokesperson Zru Tudezaw. “However, this surprise attack upon our facilities will not go unpunished. We are reviewing our options, and rest assured, we will implement a suitable proportional response.”
“Cromforge can not and will not allow OPL to win this bid,” remarked Cila Rotup’uh for Cromforge. “Their plans to reverse engineer the cure into a new, more potent, virus are simply unacceptable, and they must be stopped at any cost. Cromforge will continue to ensure that the citizens of Perasca receive this cure without being priced gouged by T&P, nor reinfected by OPL.”
TRI-HQ (TRI-FP) – In what appears to be an attempt to recoup losses after a the recent tit for tat corporate squabbles, Tens & Piney, Cromforge Enterprises, and Octave Propulsion Labs have all offered up similar investment opportunities as part of their bids to win the exclusive manufacturing rights for the Letifer virus cure from Samsun Universal.
“Tens & Piney is pleased to offer the chance at a good investment opportunity for enterprising pilots,” stated Vivian Duvazaco. “When T&P wins the cure bid, those pilots who invested will be richly rewarded for their foresight and financial savvy as their initial investment gets doubled. In addition, T&P commits to ensuring the cure is made available as fast as possible to any government who has citizens suffering from this terrible disease.”
“Cromforge is committed to bringing this cure to the people of Perasca,” remarked Cila Rotup’uh. “It is our intention to offer this cure to the Fa’hil Memta at cost price. Cromforge is not out to make a profit, nor reverse engineer the cure into a new virus, but simply to help those who are suffering.”
“Only Octave Propulsion has the vision for this project,” commented Zru Tudezaw. “Anyone with an ounce of common sense will see that investing in the OPL bid offers an almost guaranteed chance to double their money in a very short period of time. We have a proven track record of taking the initiative, and thinking out of the box to bring products to market faster than our competitors.”
All three investments close at 23:59 ET on 105.03.17 and any pilot wishing to partake should contact the corporations directly.
TRI-HQ (TRI-FP) – Inventories of Cromforge Enterprise equipment have been hit hard by apparent sabotage, according to a press release issued today by Cromforge spokesperson Cila Rotup’uh.
“Shortly after 9pm a large group of Octavian pilots, primarily from squad OEC, entered Quantar space, escorting Livia Pulchra towards TriPoint station. In a preemptive strike, Pulchra was quickly returned to Octavian space by pilot spork of Quantar squad Brotherhood. Facing strong resistance around TriPoint, the Octavians moved towards Quantar Core and Corridor instead, and were able to destroy Cromforge’s Thorn manufacturing facilities at those stations. Two more attempts to sabotage the primary Thorn facilities at TriPoint were thwarted by pilots from assorted Quantar squads, including Brotherhood, DDZ, and Fourth Tribe. Pilot Radi was able to inflict two pod rides on Pulchra, with able assistance from CaptainCow of DDZ.
“The loss of the facilities and equipment at Corridor and Quantar Core is unfortunate, but Cromforge will recover from this. We are, of course, very grateful to all those pilots who helped to successfully protect our facilities at TriPoint, while extremely disappointed that a squad such as OEC would lower itself to escorting a known saboteur like Pulchra.
“Credible information from pilot Hrafn has led to Octave Propulsion Labs being identified as the ultimate instigator of this incident, and Cromforge is currently reviewing its options for remediation.”
OPL’s public relations department did not immediately respond to TRINN’s request for comment.
