UNRIVALLED GOD OF WAR - Season 2 Episode 88
Penny looked at Nathan in disbelief, and even her voice was shaky, “Returning the nine million to them will totally disrupt the cash flow of the company. We might not even have enough to compensate the workers.”
Nathan merely replied, “It’s nothing. There will be other investors after they withdraw their shares.”
Nathan immediately made a call to Colin Dunne, “Pass the message to investors in Channing. Diva Limited is looking for capital investments. Those interested are to see me within half an hour. Limited numbers only, so those interested should be fast.”
Nathan hung up after he passed on the message.
The three of them sneered. Before this incident, a lot of people were indeed interested to invest in Cross Corporation.
However, after this incident and the news of the city officials considering to pass the project on to other investors, how many would still be interested?
Nathan had even asked for those interested to contact him fast. What a joke!
Penny was still doubtful, “Are we really going to return the nine million capital back to them and get our shares back?” `
To this Nathan replied, “Of course. It’s their loss. Why should we be concerned?”
Penny was still on the fence. Nathan smiled, “Honey, after all I’ve done, do you still not believe in me? If you trust me, you should get the lawyer and ask them to transfer the 48% shares in their hands back to us.”
Penny bit her lip at Nathan’s remark. In the end, she chose to trust him.
She then turned to the three people in front of her, “Okay, I will use nine million to buy the shares in your hands.”
Penny then called for the lawyer to come.
The three of them were smug after getting what they wanted.
They initially thought that they were going to lose a huge portion of their capital and that they would not be able to liquidate their shares.
However, they did not expect Nathan and Penny to be so naïve to agree to return the capital worth nine million to them.
The lawyer of the Cross Corporation arrived not long after.
The agreement draft was ready for Penny and the three Smiths to sign.
After they signed the agreement, a few men dressed in impeccable suits came knocking.
They were Zachary Schulz, the richest man in Channing; Liam Harrison, director of Channing Bank; George Miller, owner of Juno Hotel; Wyatt Kent, president of Watsons Holdings Corporation and finally, Calvin Grant, the chairman of the Avery Real Estate.
The three Smiths were astounded at the billionaires showing up.
Any one of their net worth would easily triumph the Smiths.
It was not an understatement to say that the Smiths seemed like beggars in front of Zachary Schulz.
The three Smiths were dazed by the billionaires. Oh my goodness. Are these billionaires really here to invest in Cross Corporation?
The billionaires approached Penny and Nathan directly, validating their guess. Zachary Schulz and the others were all smiles and asked, “Ms. Smith, we’ve heard that some morons have decided to withdraw their shares, causing your company to be in a tight spot financially. I’ve also heard you’re looking for investors?”
Sean, Samuel and Paul cast glances at each other. Are they talking about us?
Penny was flabbergasted as well, and she turned around to glance at the grinning Nathan. She was visibly nervous at being face to face with these billionaires. “Mr. Schulz, and sirs. Greetings.”
“My company has been facing some difficulties recently, especially in view of my grandpa and uncles liquidating their shares. It’s true that we’re facing some cash flow issues.”
Zachary Schulz smiled, “I wonder how much Ms. Smith needs?”
Penny replied, “Two billion, no- just one billion will do.”
“I just need one billion to get Cross Corporation through this hurdle. Would you guys be willing to invest a billion in me?”
Zachary Schulz and the others laughed at her remark. Schulz was especially generous, “How’s one billion enough? Ten billion is more like it. The five of us will contribute two billion each!”
Penny’s eyes widened in disbelief.
Grandpa and uncles were just making noise about liquidating their shares, yet now these billionaires are fighting to invest in Cross Corporation.
Nathan circled his hands around Penny’s slim waist and smiled, “Honey, since they’re sincere enough to come all the way here to offer to invest their capital, why don’t you just accept their offer?”
Penny then regained her composure and breathed in deeply to soothe the storm raging in her heart, and gratefully thanked them, “Thank you Mr. Schuz. Thank you to all of you. Thank you for believing in me, especially a time like this.”
“I won’t disappoint you guys. I promise to make your investments worth it.”
The billionaires seemed happier than Penny when she agreed to let them invest in Cross Corporation.
They were all smile. “Sure, sure.”
The three Smiths were dumbfounded.
They were not stupid and believed that the billionaires weren’t stupid either.
On the contrary, the billionaires were as smart as a whip.
Hence, they believed that it was not a blind investment on the billionaires’ part.
It was positive that the news on the city officials planning to pass on the Asiatic Mall project to another company was just a rumor.
Cross Corporation’s future was still as bright as day!
The three Smiths then realized that they had made a stupid decision, and regretted it immensely.
However, there were no ifs and buts. They could only leave in despair.
However, what was going to happen two days later would make regret a word too mild to describe their feelings. They should not withdraw their shares then.
