After a rice company and a spice company merges, it must give up half the land to Siap Faji tiles. What happens to the remaining rice and spice tiles? Do they just sit there for the rest of the game? In future expansions, can only Siap Faji tiles be placed? And the merged company only needs to ship all their Siap Faji tiles in a turn to get a free expansion? Or they also have to ship the rice and spice too?

Thanks in advance.

The rice and spice land that they give up goes away - the ones they keep are turned into siap faji tiles. Further expansion is then siap faji only, and you only need to ship all your siap faji to do it.

Half the tiles are given up, the remainder become Siap Faji and then the Siap Faji expands as normal.

I'm surprised you missed this in the rulebook since it is listed on page 6 under Siap Faji mergers in its own bullet point.

after the merger is completed, the new owner must give up half of the
goods (land areas) owned by the old companies (rounded up). Empty
these areas of any goods. You can only give up areas at the border of
your company’s estate—that is, you may not break contiguous zones
of spice/rice by taking goods from the middle. Replace the rice/spice
goods in the remaining areas with siap faji goods.

Thanks for the clarification.

My bad, I thought it was keep half the tiles and give up the other half to be converted to siap faji tiles.

So, if I have 2 rice and 1 spice, I have to give up two and replace the remaining with a siap faji counter. But if I have 3 rice and 4 spice I give up four - so let's say I give up two rice and two spice. Then my question is my remaining spice (2) and rice (1) are converted into two separate siap faji subsidiaries that can ship 2 siap faji goods the following operations phase?

The two areas are considered to be one company. The whole company ships at the same time. So you would ship 3 goods in total during one operation. 2 would come from one area and 1 from the other.

This also means the company would expand once, not twice.
