Investment in Neverwinter is putting profits back into the company, just not where you think they should go.

Compensation to owners by way of return on investment is not an expense, however the analogy still stands. A patron does not have a say, nor should expect a say, in how profits are spent. In my analogy to a salary, at least the salary related to the product directly.

Cryptic no longer does anything with our money.
PWE uses it to fund their new North American game studio.

Plus, there are probably people swimming around in a vault full of cash.
That seems legit.

*sigh*

It's 84% Gross Profit and about 35% Net Profit.

That's profit. Not reinvestment. Not paid to developers. Not paid in taxes.

Profit.

As in paid to the shareholders.

As in what;s left over after all of the bills are paid.

Profit.

Profit is what you use to reinvest with. The above stated are expenses and/or taxes.

PWE has a $2 dividend apparently. So $2x however many shares are out there subtracted from their net profit leaves you with retained earnings which is used to apply to whatever projects they have. Blah blah not counting preferred stock and all that jazz.
