Slow news day when ISN reports something as useless as this. Nothing worthwhile or noteworthy is coming of the the Periphery. Ever. First the 'news' of pirates not doing their job, now this? Fire your editor.

It's like the idiots saying that one day the SLDF Armies will return from the deep periphery and reinstate the Star League. Utter foolishness.

The Pinard Protectorate facilities on this water-world consist of four separate factories on miniature islands. The defenders here must use large, vulnerable air and sea transports to move reinforcements between factories, because traveling along the sea bottom by 'Mech is too slow to be of practical use for the distances involved.

Formed in 3020, Pinard Protectorates Limited is the newest Taurian defense industry. The Board of Directors of this publicly owned, private industrial concern is responsible to their stockholders, rather than the Taurian government. Though its the line of goods is small, PPL hopes to improve its position in the marketplace by producing its wares cheaper than its competitors. The company runs on a profit-sharing system; workers are paid in both salaries and stock in the company.

Formed in 3020, Pinard Protectorates is privately owned, though it gets contracts from the national government. Much of its business comes from contracts at the planetary-government level, producing equipment for local militia forces. The company has done well over the past forty-plus years, and its Scorpion laser pistol dominates the market in small-arms energy weapons. Its factories on Perdition, a water world, are scattered across four miniature islands in an impressive feat of architectural engineering.
Contrary to accepted wisdom, the Rommel tank has never been produced on Perdition, though rumors to that effect have dogged PPL for decades. Katherine Steiner-Davion’s decision to export the design in the wake of the Lyran Alliance’s formation only served to entrench these rumors.
PPL is currently involved in a joint venture with the Alphard Trading Corporation, which briefly merged with PPL from the 3020s through the mid-3050s, and Kali Yama Weapons Industries in the Free Worlds League. ATC Perdition builds the J. Edgar and Fulcrum hovercraft, for which PPL provides engines and other parts.
And I can't find a canon source to verify this, but I've run across some apocryphal information that indicates that the planetary capital might be called Oceana (which seems appropriate enough).
