Love Comes To Me
Chapter 33 Asking for A Trouble
At 10:00am, the general manager Monty as well as some management, were standing at the gate of Excellent Company's office to welcome the on-site team from Gardner Group. All the management level of Excellent Company paid attention to the chance of acquisition; they were well-dress today to wait for the team. Soon, four to five Audi cars were arriving in high speed and stopped at the gate. Monty went to open the door of the first car with great respect. The first one who got out of the car was the representative of Gardner Group, Robbie Gardner. He was in a suit of stripe and a pair of extremely clean shoes, tall and handsome; he looked gentle and high-class, much outstanding among the folk. The one following him was his fiancée Agnes. She was well-dressed in luxurious brands and wore elegant make-up, appearing as an arrogant peacock. But she would become lovely and warm as soon as looking at Robbie. The other team members got off in succession to stand behind Robbie and Agnes. Monty extended his hand to talk respectfully, "Mr. Gardner, welcome your team. I prepared some drink for you. This way, please. Robbie shook hand with Monty and smiled, "Thank you so much. We will be a family from tomorrow. Please kindly help us in the future. Monty was happy to hear it, "Sure, I will. That is my work. Come in please. He led the team to the office. They were in the CEO office soon. Gardner Group could not allow any loss of this chance, so its best negotiators were here now. Monty invited the team to have a seat and served welcome drink, then started the topic. Gardner Group was a top business group which certainly sent a top team for the acquisition. Excellent Company also intended to sell. Gardner Group took little time to count all the assets, annual income, annual profit, resources and value, including whether holding liability. After all the work, the chief representative of negotiation said, "Excellent Company has been established for three years. In the first year, it lost; in the second and third years, it just broke even; in the fourth and fifth years, it started to earn profit of thirty million dollars per year. In the sixth year, the profit was only twenty million dollars due to more competition
In this year, namely the seventh year, it came to a peak, especially after doing business with Rogers Group, being tripled valued. If we talk about the development and profitability, Excellent Company is still potential to earn more profit in short time; but considering the incompetent staff, we are afraid it will not earn so much from the second half of next year. To conclude, we suggest the buying price is …". Then, he showed his two fingers to give everyone he re an answer about the value. Two hu ndred milli on dollars! . Monty frowned wit h the price. Although Excellent Company had a hard time in the first years of establishment, it had a good fame and well-known in the industry. All of these had been invested plenty of money. Even it had not bee n a listed company, the buying price was too low. "Mr. Gardner, my boss will not sat isfy the price. He said we should sell at. " Monty showed five fingers to say. At the beginning, Robbie listened to the talk without saying anything. But now, he laughed and said, "Monty, you kn ow it's too tough. We quoted with the overall evaluation of your company; I still think it's overestimated. But your pri ce is too much to meet the budget. We will not agree; neither company will agree on your price. So, please make it fair. The team also sa id, "Mr. Clark, please get to be realistic. All the team were greatly professional who started to talk about det ails of Excellent Company's weak points. They were good at negotiation; a fter a couple of rounds, Monty was unable to negotiate with them anymore. Just the moment he lost it and ag reed to sell at two hundred million dol lars, someone was knocking at the door. His assistant came in hu rriedly to report Monty, "Mr. Clark, Master Rupert is here. Everyone in the offic e was stunned. Monty stoo d up to ask her , "Who is here?" . The assistant repe ated, "Master Rupert Ro gers from Rogers Group. Monty was worr ied about the reaso n of Rupert's visit
Both partied just finished the negotiation. Rupert's appearance woul d exactly lead Robbie to contact him. What would he do if Robbie and Rupert have t he same opinion, even finally agreed on the busin ess? Everything he intended to have would be gone. So worried as him, Monty still tried to be calm in appearance and said, "Mr. Gardner, I have an important visitor now. Do you mi nd stopping our talk for a while? We will continue when I am back. Robbie smiled and stood up, saying, "Nev er mind. But Master Rupert should not come he re so often; may I meet him together with you? . Obviously, he had the same idea with Monty. So big a company as Gardner Group, Robbi e preferred to negotiate with Rogers Group in stead of a small entity as Excellent Company. Robbie believed he could save some m oney for Gardner Group if he got to know a nd talk with Rupert now. He had to try it. Someone of the team had also realized it an d laughed to say, "Good idea. Let's meet Mr. Rup ert now and then come back to confirm the price. Robbie and the whole t eam left the office; only t he helpless Monty was here. Just now, in the meeting room of Excellent Com pany, Rupert sat cross-legged casually. Though he ap peared to be silly, nobody would ignore his ability. In the Rogers Group, Rupert took the jobs on ly under Hector at a young age; he was open-hearte d and talkative, looking greatly charming as well. He was really the o ne who would surely obse ss everyone meeting him. The administrative lady serving tea fo r Rupert could not be more excited to see hi m and got a lovely pink blush on her cheeks. Rupert got used to th e way he was treated and s miled to her, "Thank you. The lady got fast heartbeat and felt too shy to stay beside h im; she left the room mindlessly. Rupert laughed an d then drank some tea while having a humming. The doo r was pushed open later. Monty being foll owed by the team from Gardner Group came in. Rupert had a look at them and smiled secretly. They were in a r ush to see him before he taking some action! . Ask ing for a trouble!
