Liquidation Polls

To prevent spamming of liquidation polls the rules for a liquidation poll were adjusted. A liquidation poll can now only be demanded for companies which already consist of cash and/or own shares only. To reduce the amount of time needed to liquidate a compnay to a minimum the voting duration of a liquidation poll is reduced from 7 to 1 day.

 

Alpha Bank

Companies that got overtaken by Alphabanker will be liquidated. They enter a 3-step procedure short time after the takeover. The companies sell their own shares to the bank and sell the whole portfolio using market sell orders afterwards. Eventually the companies get liquidated, when they consist only of cash.
