The comment about him being the 'majority shareholder and CEO' of Merryweather may be incorrect. Lester states during a cutscene (Memory fails me, I think it's for "The Third Way") that Devin has an 11% stake, hardly a majority. You also receive an email from the actual CEO regarding Devin's death, saying that he will make a lot of money back from buying Devin's shares.RuinsFate (talk) 18:37, October 12, 2013 (UTC)
- Really? I know he did own 11%, but I thought Lester stated "...so he owns a lot of Merryweather", or something along those lines. It could've even been a sarcastic remark, but I thought someone said he owned a majority of Merryweather. Maybe 11% is a lot or something?
- Somebody keeps adding that. It isn't true. Don Percival is the CEO, and has been since he founded Merryweather in 2003. Tom Talk 18:41, October 12, 2013 (UTC)
- A "Majority Shareholder" is a legally defined term, if I recall rightly it means someone with 51% or more of the shares, a "majority", making them pretty much the loudest voice in control of the company. 11% is respectible, and a fairly profitable stake, but it's not the 'majority' by any means.

Lester's Assassination Missions - Profit for Devin Weston?
I was wondering...does Devin indirectly profit from Lester's Assassination missions? I just had a look at the page for Devin, in which one of his listed businesses is none other than Debonaire Cigarettes, whose main competitor is Redwood Cigarettes. If I remember correctly, one of the four Assassination missions has the player kill the head of Redwood Cigarettes, with the option of profiting from an investment in Debonaire Cigarettes also available.
Since Devin owns many (if not all) businesses in San Andreas, would it be fair to assume that among his investments are the businesses that benefit from the outcomes of the Assassination missions? It would make sense (and would probably piss Lester off).
If this is the case, would this also apply to the first mission Lester gives to Michael, in which he kills the LifeInvader founder and CEO?
JB 700 - Meltdown?
Another question, which is as follows: was the tricked-out JB 700 - stolen by Franklin on Devin Weston's behalf -being used for the Meltdown production? It is mentioned on the page for Deep Inside that Milton and Anton, both of whom are attached to the project, can be killed in this mission. But I don't know whether they're on set for the production, or just because they're involved with the movie business.
