Majin Buu in Marvel - Chapter 11
Chapter 11: Daily Company Report
Midtown Manhattan is the most crowded and prosperous area on Manhattan Island. It is also the area with the highest density of skyscrapers in the world. It can even be said to be the center of the world.
Fifth Avenue, a row of high-end commercial buildings, has a newly built 50-story commercial office building.
Allen got Gwen and quickly came here after leaving school. The highest two floors of this office building, the 49th and 50th floors, were bought by Allen for a large price, as “Coulson Maglev The company’s headquarters in New York.
These two floors were not cheap. After Allen sold the League of Legends for $300 million, Louis found a special accounting firm for him. After using all methods to avoid tax reasonably, Allen had nearly $500 million remaining.
Although he still paid more than US$50 million in taxes, it has to be said that this accounting firm is indeed awesome, saving Allen a lot of money.
After that, Allen chose this as his company’s headquarters in New York. The building has a total of 50 floors. Allen directly bought the highest two-story office building with an area of about 20,000 square feet, about 1,858 square meters.
In order to buy them, Allen spent about $42 million.
Later, Allen transformed the top floor into a laboratory, and the research and development of the magnetic levitation device is closely related to this.
At the moment, his CEO Louis Olila is waiting for him in the company.
“Mr. Coulson, your elevator!” After seeing Allen coming in, the security guard in the office took the initiative to press the elevator for Allen.
Allen responded with a smile and said: “Thank you!”
The elevator soon came to the forty-ninth floor. Allen had just stepped out of the elevator and saw a small dot quickly rushing towards him, and he also shouted in his mouth: “Dad, you are finally here, I thought you didn’t want to!”
Allen’s mouth twitched, and he saw a robot with a height of only 50 centimeters and an electronic eye in the middle of his head. Giroud ran over, hugged Allen’s legs, and rubbed. There was a cry of “Woo” sound heard from the electronic device.
Of course, Allen has no children. This robot was a technology developed by Allen and Reed at the time to develop artificial intelligence from the Dragon Ball Treasure Box. This technology and Reed’s technology are different from each other. Both of them gave each other a lot inspiration.
Later, Allen chose to use the technology in Dragon Ball as the core to develop the artificial intelligence “Giroud!”
When Giroud was developed, Allen found out that it had its own unique personality. Giroud was not like Stark’s “Jarvis” and was willing to help the host quietly. This guy’s personality was like a little Child, curious about everything in this world.
When it learned that it is created by Allen, he began to call Allen his father “Daddy”, which made Allen very embarrassed for a while, and Giroud still absorbed all the information in this world. Until it wants to take a look at it in person.
Under desperation, Allen made it a simple, rough body, even if it was so, this little guy was also happy.
Now Giroud is in charge of the operation of the upper and lower floors of the company. It arranges everything in an orderly manner and saves the administrative staff a great deal of energy. It is very helpful to Allen.
But its current behavior made Allen extremely embarrassed. Looking at the iron bumps still holding his legs, Allen kicked it away, and quickly said: “Louis is still waiting for me!”
Allen left quickly, leaving only Giroud to stay there patheticly, but Allen knew that it had no effect on Giroud’s living treasure, and soon it would find other things to do.
When Allen walked to the office area, employees kept saying hello to him, Allen responded one by one, and soon, Allen came to his CEO’s office.
“Please come in!”
“Allen, you finally showed up!”
Seeing Allen appear, a middle-aged white man with a bare head, complained dissatisfiedly.
Looking at his CEO’s tired face due to fatigue, Allen was very sorry. At this critical moment of the company’s financing, he disappeared for some reason for several days. This is really not what a responsible boss should do.
“Louis, this time is really hard for you, if you are tired, take two days off and rest first!”
Louis shook his head and said: “No, this time is the most critical time, there is no time to rest, now I will report to you the progress of the negotiation!”
Hearing Louis’ words, Allen nodded, not demanding. After all, he was right. After this period of time, he would be able to relax.
The two sat at the desk, Louis took out the collated information and gave it to Allen, and began to report the latest situation: “Our company’s magnetic levitation technology was attracted to the public at the moment. The attention of many investment institutions.”
“And after we released the news that we accepted the financing, the five major US investment banks, Japan’s Softbank, and major consortia all extended olive branches to us. After three rounds of financing negotiations, the top five investment banks now have Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. The most sincere and willing to raise funds at the price of one hundred and twenty million US dollars for one percent of the shares!”
Allen looked at the information in his hand and asked: “Do they have any requirements?”
“The two major investment banks all require a minimum of 20% of the company’s financing quota, which is the bottom line of their negotiations, which is far from the shares we are willing to give!”
Allen nodded and asked: “What about other investment companies?”
“The requirements of other investment institutions are roughly equivalent to those of the two major investment banks, but the most sincere ones are Stark Industries and Osborn Group. They are willing to acquire at least 130% for a price of US$130 million. Ten shares!”
Allen tapped on the table with his fingers and said: “And what else!”
“There are also two car giants, General Motors Corporation and Ford Motor Company. Because our magnetic levitation device is mainly aimed at the automotive market, the two major car manufacturers fully see the huge benefits, and the financing prices they give are also the highest. It can reach 180 million US dollars, but it requires a holding of our company!”
“It’s impossible!” Allen immediately rejected the proposal. He didn’t want to let the company he had worked so hard to build up.
Louis nodded and did not feel any surprises. He continued to say calmly: “So our main job now is to raise the investment price of other investment companies and to suppress the investment quota of the two major car companies!”
“Also, among these investment companies, there is a strange company called SHIELD, which is tepid. The bid has been matching other companies. Now it is also bidding to 130 million, but it is not well-known. In my investigation, there are no well-known investment cases before, which may not help us much in the future!”
Allen’s eyes twitched. With such an obvious name, he knew who’s company is this, and can also say that it is also the world’s largest intelligence agency.
“Don’t worry about it, if it matches other people’s quotations, then give him a part of the financing amount, this company can help us in the government and some other special channels!”
“Oh?” Upon hearing Allen’s words, Louis’s eyes lit up, and then he said: “I see!”
“There is also our factory in New Jersey, which has been built almost, covering an area of 12 acres, about 50,000 square meters, the plant has been completed, and the machine is being commissioned, and soon it will be officially put into production!”
“Great, Louis, our bright future is waving to us!” Allen said happily.
“But our money has also been spent. At that time, you injected 150 million US dollars into the company, buying land, building factories, buying equipment and hiring labor. We have already spent our book funds.”
“And it’s because our company’s headquarters in New York is using the office property you bought for free, otherwise we will be more stretched, Allen, are we going to borrow from the bank now?”
“Ah, wait a minute, we will talk about loans after our company has financed. At that time, we will not only have a lot of extra cash, the company will also have a higher evaluation in the bank, and can use less collateral with more money!”
“Okay, let’s wait!”
This difficult situation is the reason why Allen can’t afford even a new car after refitting his car. He sold all the money earned by the League of Legends and invested all in the company, real estate and experimental equipment. If within a month, he unable to finance successfully, Allen is going to be Bankrupt!
“Anyway, Louis, you did a great job!”
Louis nodded and said: “This is the recent development of our company, Allen, what do you think, tell me now, I will try to coordinate.”
Looking at Louis, Allen pondered for a while and said: “So far, everything is fine, that is, the financing price, you can continue to talk, try their bottom line, try to increase the price, the financing amount is still so much, I am only willing to let the ferry hand a hundred Forty percent of the shares.”
“And half of them are equity transfers and half of them increase capital for the company. I want money to be useful!”
Looking at Louis, whose face was tired, Allen continued to said: “Also, I promised you, when all this dust settles, it will give you a 3% dividend, if you continue to work for me in the future sooner or later, these shares will become option shares!”
Hearing Allen’s words, Louis was shocked. Such a commitment is not generous. After all, if the company’s financing is successful, the market value will be more than 10 billion, and the value of 3% of the shares will not be low. It’s just dividend shares, but in the future it will eventually become option shares, and Louis has this confidence.
At this time, it was also time for Louis to be faithful and he said: “Allen, you can rest assured that I will work hard to run the company well!”
Allen nodded, Louis worked hard to create wealth for him. Then Allen will not treat him thinly. Over the past few years, Allen has focused on research, cultivation and schooling, and everything in business is maintained by Louis.
Although Allen has Dr. Brief’s genius brain and is backed by Dragon Ball Treasure Boxes, he has done well in recent years and has developed many amazing inventions, but he knows nothing about commercial matters.
And Louis has been helping him all the time since Allen developed the League of Legends, so that Allen’s business road can go smoothly, after all, the tall buildings are flat.
Allen has a very ambitious vision for the future of this world, and if he wants to realize it, he must lay a solid foundation so that the future can go better and further, and there must be the help of talents like Louis.
“By the way, our new Hogarth-Chao and Benowitz law firm is okay?” Allen asked.
Although the former law firm had a good reputation, Allen lost a lawsuit and lost a lot of money. In one go, Allen changed to a law firm.
Louis nodded and said affirmatively: “Although Lawyer Hogarth is a lady, she has a long-standing reputation in Manhattan. One of our previous lawsuits was handled by her personally, and the settlement was very smooth!”
“And the other lawyers in their law firm are also very good. Before that, Ms. Hogarth assigned us several service lawyers, which allowed us to avoid a few pitfalls in the signing of the contract. Benowitz Law Firm is very satisfied!”
“That’s good, since that’s okay, I’ll go first!”
“There is one more thing. You must have an assistant to handle your affairs now. You can’t have this kind of disappearance for several days again!” Louis said unhappily.
“Okay, I will consider it!”
