From a financial perspective my company could have not done much better in my opinion. I started out by taking out $127,320,000 in loans to be able to finance the capacity that I wanted to build.

At one point in the game I was able to have Peyton Manyon, Ace Federer, and Yao KungPao which gave me a strategic celebrity advantage in each region except Latin American.
