A geographic division would not suit Hulong interests. Our interest is XM, and your polite implication that Hulong’s region of influence is limited to the Asian territories is a quaint reminder of your dated view of the world. We have no interest in regional exclusivity. Our goal is to explore and invest in XM without constraint and our market is the world.
Your proposal implies that we would have horizontal as well as vertical alliances. Do you suppose our friends at IQTech and their subsidiary the NIA would share your enthusiasm? Their vertical alignment is clear. In terms of some sort of horizontal commercial alliance, Calvin would never go against sovereign interests. I recognize your wisdom in perceiving this as a vulnerability.
We are fully aware of the regional XM tracking system you have been testing in your labs. You might assume Hulong has explored similar technology. I will do you the favor of sharing confirmed intel that IQTech has researched and is in the process of implementing technology to enable them to track Agent operations at a regional level tracked against the Shaper Septicycle. The better solution for both our organizations is to ensure that IQTech is unable to leverage a competitive advantage against both of us, even if this means leveling the playing field. Combined, Visur and Hulong could outpace IQTech’s developments in this field.
