Share madeout to Jacobus Maelcamp.

Despite its profitability, the company was eventually ordered to close down in 1731 after the British exerted diplomatic pressure on the Holy Roman Empire, fearing the company's effects on their own traders. Its disestablishment was made a precondition for the Treaty of Vienna and for creating an alliance between the two states. The Ostend Company can be considered the first attempt by the Holy Roman Empire to monopolize trade with the East Indies; the second being the much less successful Austrian East India Company, founded in 1775.
