Chapter 819: CEO Jenny Has to Be Overbearing
Luke pondered for a moment. “There are even more of those who are up to no good, right?”
Jenny’s face darkened. “They’ve never stopped, and it’s a few companies now; Weyland has already indicated that there’s nothing he can do.”
Luke didn’t think much of it. “It’s fine. Don’t we already have that ‘little green robot’ as bait? You’ve been preparing for this, right?”
Jenny hesitated. “Are we really going to take out Little Green? Maybe we can think of something else?”
Luke shrugged. “It’s best if we can complete most of our patent exchange before they take action, or the patent lawsuits later will completely drag down the phone company.”
Jenny nodded helplessly. She knew that she had to throw out “Little Green” if she wanted to keep the phone company safe.
There were a lot of big companies in America that specialized in patent frauds, especially in the Internet and electronics field.
The more valuable the Titanium Phone Company was, the happier these guys were.
Nobody had made a move yet. They were waiting for Titanium Phone Company to increase in worth.
At that time, these big companies that relied on patents to make a fortune would take out the patent stick which they had been hiding behind their backs to hit Titanium Phone Company and obtain its patent license or ask for sky-high compensation.
Given the speed at which the cell phone company was expanding, it wouldn’t be long before these companies couldn’t hold back anymore and would swarm over to split the fruits of the labor.
While she was considering these questions, Luke pulled her into his arms and whispered in her ear, “Now, I have something to say. Don’t get too excited. Stay calm, okay?”
Jenny blushed. “Pfft, what are your hands doing?”
Luke chuckled dryly. That’s to keep you in place in case you suddenly explode.
Then, he told her what he was here for.
“W! T!… mm!” A high-pitched cry which almost broke the sound barrier rang out.
Luke quickly covered her mouth. “Be more civilized, alright? You’re a CEO now. You can’t just swear.”
He shut up for a few seconds after Jenny cursed, before she calmed down and signaled for him to let go.
Luke immediately moved his hand away.
He wasn’t afraid of her swearing, but this old building wasn’t soundproof, and it was easy for anyone to eavesdrop on them for nothing.
This time, Jenny wasn’t in a hurry to say anything. She thought for a long while before she said, “Do we have to take out a loan?”
Luke snorted and said, “We can’t deal with certain people and forces on our own for the time being. It’s better to intimidate them with a tiger.”
Jenny frowned and remembered the people who even Weyland didn’t want to mess with.
After a brief silence, she said, “I have a suitable person here. She’s very rich, and also wants to join our company.”
Luke asked, “Who?”
“Do you remember Beth Thompson, the richest woman in the Thompson family and a major shareholder of Island Dragon Electronics?” Jenny reminded him.
Of course Luke knew who this Miss Beth was.
It was the young lady who went missing in Poland, leading to that “unmentionable story” between Luke and the vampires.
Also, this young lady had a “bad luck halo.” It wasn’t just her, but the people around her were also unlucky.
She had been kidnapped by the vampire’s lackey, the Bubblegum Gang, and two of her classmates had been kidnapped as well.
When she returned, she realized that her father and brother had played disgraceful roles in this matter, and she dug a pit for her father’s phone company.
In the end, her enemy, the vampires, had caught Luke’s attention when he went looking for her, and he killed a lot of them. Even the Thompson family’s rival, the Elsworth family, suffered heavy losses.
She, her friends, family, and enemies all came out of this incident worse off.
With such bad luck, Miss Beth was also the kind of unlucky person who was “rich but not happy.”
Luke raised an eyebrow. “She’s so young and has enough assets to last her several lifetimes. Why is she working so hard?”
Jenny said helplessly, “I don’t think she just wants to make money. She wants to participate in any future decisions our company makes.”
Luke asked, “Does she want to swallow up the phone company?”
Jenny shook her head. “My guess is that she wants to completely destroy her father’s phone company.”
Luke sweated. “What a grudge! Is she going to make Dad poor?”
Jenny sighed. “Pretty much! I didn’t ask about her family, but there were a few times when she accidentally mentioned her father and brother, and she looked like she wanted them dead. She couldn’t hide her hatred at all.”
Luke didn’t say anything and started thinking.
Jenny continued, “This deal can include a patent exchange between Island Dragon and our company for at least ten years.”
Luke thought for a moment. “Is this young lady very rich?”
Jenny said, “A lot of financial magazines have reported her net worth as no less than eighty billion dollars. If we succeed, she might even be worth more than a hundred billion dollars.”
Luke chuckled. “It seems Island Dragon is a patent magnate, right? Giving her the exclusive rights to ‘Little Green’ will earn her money as well as draw some people’s attention.”
Hearing that, Jenny couldn’t help but tighten her grip on Luke’s waist. “Can we do that?”
That was the first solution she had thought of when Luke said earlier that he was going to take a loan out on the phone company.
In any case, he had prepared “Little Green” as bait long ago. He was just waiting for the right moment to throw it out.
Jenny didn’t believe in the conscience of capitalists, and she didn’t want to put the phone company in the hands of another power so soon.
If that happened, it would be very easy for Titanium Phone Company, which wasn’t big enough yet, to be taken advantage of by big capitalists
Luke nodded with a smile. “Sure. Handle it yourself, but the money has to be settled within a week at most. You can make some concessions.”
Jenny heaved a sigh of relief, and then turned her attention back to the business Luke had raised. “What happened to Stark Industries? Why do you think its stock price will drop?”
Luke said, “It’s inside information. There’s internal conflict in Stark Industries; the stock price will definitely drop. We can take this opportunity to make some money.”
Jenny was surprised. “Really?”
Then, she frowned again. “But why are you using our profits to buy Stark Industries shares? Are you sure the price will rise again after it drops? From what you’re saying, it won’t be just a small drop.”
Luke smiled. “Because as long as Tony Stark doesn’t get kicked out of the company, the stock price will rise again after he starts putting out a few projects.”
Jenny raised her eyebrows. “Aren’t you exaggerating? He’s indeed very good, but you make it sound like he’s God.”
But when it comes to making money from technology, this young master is truly god! Luke felt helpless.
