# 3.2 Company value

Achieving a high company value (CV) is the primary goal of Tycoon Online. It is your company value that determines your C-rank. Your company increases in value when you gain money, expand your business and make investments.

A company valued 0 iKr goes bankrupt if it does not increase its company value before midnight.

Below follows a complete list of events that affect your company value.

#### Gaining and losing money

For every 20 iKr gained, your company value increases by one. For every 20 iKr lost or spent, your company value decreases by 1 iKr, except when investing money, purchasing zones, upgrading factories, and donating to Today's TO-player.

#### Constructing buildings

When constructing any building, your company value increases by 1/10 of the price of the building. For instance, if you build a carpentry factory for 4 000 iKr, your company value rises by 400 iKr.

When purchasing a vehicle, your company value increases by 1/15 of the price of the vehicle. For instance, if you purchase a car for 900 iKr, your company value rises by 60 iKr.

When you upgrading your warehouse, your company value increases by 1/15 of of the price of the expansion.

#### Producing goods in factories

For each unit produced in your factories, your company value rises by 1 iKr.

#### Selling goods in shops

For each unit sold in a shop, your company value rises by 1 iKr. For instance, if a shop sells 10 pieces of furniture, you gain 10 iKr to your company value. This is in addition to company value gained from the money from the sale.

#### Taking advantage of market bonus

In case of market bonus, you gain an additional 1 iKr to your company value for each product sold on the market.

#### Carrying out transportation assignments

Whenever one of your vehicles finishes a transportation assignment, you receive a company value boost equal to the number of units transported x the distance traveled / 150.

#### Investing

For each 20 iKr invested through the bank, your company value increases by 1 iKr. Note that when you invest, you do not lose company value from spending money like you do when money is spent in most other ways.

#### Donating to Today's TO-Player

By donating iKr to the randomly chosen TO player of the day, you gain a bonus of 1 iKr per 10 iKr donated to your company value.

#### Demolishing buildings

When you demolish a building, your company value falls by 1/8 of the money the building was bought for.

 You build a brewery that costs you 3 500 iKr. How will your company value be affected? The change in company value will be the gain by the construction minus the loss caused from spending your savings. (3 500 / 10) - (3 500 / 20) = 350 - 175 = 175 iKr more in company value. You demolish the same building. How will company value be affected? The gain in savings minus the demolition costs, ((3 500 / 5) / 20) - (3 500 / 8) = 35 - 438 = -403 iKr.

Hint: Note that at the same time as you add to your company value when you are expanding your warehouse, constructing new buildings, purchasing new vehicles, etc., you also lose some company value by spending money (see the "Savings" help file). There are some exceptions, though. No company value is lost when investing, purchasing zones, upgrading factories, and donating to Today's TO-player.
