Galactic Banking Magnate Slips into Coma
Posted by: Aetius Morbus, MedEx
Date: Year 18 Day 60 Onboard the Medicae-class Nebulon-B Frigate {DX} Benevolence in system Loedorvia (-61, -40).

CorEx Media - Headquarters, Loedorvia II

Geoff Jackson, CEO of The CorEx Group, was scheduled for a press conference earlier today when staffers and advisors were unable to reach him. Alun Tringad, Chief Security Officer, was finally able to locate Lord Jackson via the building’s internal security network. The aging CEO was found comatose behind his wall of holographic monitors and banking displays. Tringad immediately sent for Doctor Aetius Morbus, newly sworn in president of MedEx. Dr. Morbus conducted a short examination and ordered the CEO’s transfer to his Medicae’s Intensive Care Unit.

Dr. Morbus, Chief of Operations, then called a press conference to discuss Lord Jackson’s condition. “I am deeply saddened to announce that our CEO, Geoff Jackson, was found comatose earlier today. We will continue to monitor his status and keep the public apprised of any developments.”

Following a moment of silence, Dr. Morbus continued, “These past several weeks have also brought us several major changes to The CorEx Group (CXG) as a whole. As most are aware, MedEx was founded by myself on Day 41 and the sale of MinEx has just been concluded to President Jeff Kronn, long time Director of Mineral Operations CXG.”

“As a result, the Executive Committee has authorized a trade-in period to last until Day 66. MinEx Shareholders with stock purchased prior to Day 58 are eligible to trade-in MinEx for MedEx stocks at a one to one ratio. This Committee is also advising that due to this change in ownership, the benefits from MinEx stocks will be nullified on Day 66. We have been told by President Kronn that MinEx will be redesigning a benefits package for existing and future shareholders that is fairly similar to CXG’s, but we did not receive any additional information yet.”

“Finally, we have consistently received questions regarding the CorEx Bank system upgrades. At this time, the system is updated enough to reopen deposits and allow applications for new accounts. Due to the scope of our upgrades, we expect several more weeks of work to have the new system fully in place.”
