I Started As A Novel Villain - Chapter 179
“How is the situation looking for the Qizheng Group?,” Ye Fei called Zhang Minle, and questioned him.
“It’s almost there, Mr. Ye,” Zhang Minle replied politely. “Using funds from financial organizations and investors, we quietly acquired 2% further Qizheng Group stock. Furthermore, we have bought a substantial percentage of the Qizheng Group’s shares on the secondary market.”
“How many total shares do we hold in total?,” Ye Fei wondered.
“Right now, we have roughly 35.5 percent of the shares,” Zhang Minle murmured, “and we are continually gaining more at a steady pace. Don’t worry, Mr. Ye; we’ve acquired enough shares to become the Qizheng Group’s second largest shareholder.”
“Huh, Only the second-largest shareholder?” Mmm, it’s not quite enough, but it’ll do.”
Duan Qizheng is the company’s sole stockholder at the moment, and at most has 38% of the company’s equity for now.
If Ye Fei intended to remove Duan Qizheng and take over as CEO, he needed to control at least 40% of the firm.
Although the Qizheng Group is still in the media headlines and its share price has dropped, the core strength of the Qizheng Group remains exceedingly solid.
Whether it is the medicine R&D or sales channels, they can still be considered a first-class pharmaceutical firm in China.
Instead, Ye Fei took advantage of the low price to purchase the stock of the Qizheng Group, and the transaction was both steady and lucrative.
Ye Fei disclosed a tiny portion of his grand scheme to Zhang Minle and then continued to communicate privately with various Qizheng Group shareholders.
At the same time, Ye Fei received another call, this time, it came from his personal bodyguard.
“Master Ye, I’ve been waiting for your call for a long time. I have nothing to do, and it’s becoming boring,” Friday’s honest voice came from the other end.
Hearing his words, Ye Fei smiled and said lightly: “It just so happens that I have something I need you to do for me.”
“Master Ye, what is it?,” excited at the prospect of receiving a task, Friday quickly smiled.
“Mhm, ” Ye Fei responded indifferently, “Didn’t I recently ask that you mark and monitor numerous Qizheng Group executives and inform me of their movements and any suspicious activity? If so, is there anything you discovered?.”
“Yes there is, Master Ye.”
Following that, Ye Fei had a lengthy talk with Friday, throughout which Friday informed his master of the information he had obtained on two key executives and directors of the Qizheng Group.
When Ye Fei heard the news, a smile formed at the corner of his lips, and he complimented, “Well done.”
“No need to applaud me, Master; instead, you should appreciate those who were keeping an eye on the Qizheng Group. Anyway, my brothers will be waiting for you at any time,” Friday chuckled loudly.
Soon after, Ye Fei hung up the phone, and was in a good mood.
Everything is in order and on the right track.
In order to finally deal with Chen Luo, Ye Fei took great measures this time.
Of course, Chen Luo was aware that he was being repeatedly targeted by Ye Fei, so he took precautionary steps by forming alliances with Yanjing bigshots as an ally, but Ye Fei used a deliberate and incremental but lethal approach.
On the one hand, one of them was forming alliances, while the other was directly targeting them!
The poison pill incident with the Qizheng Group was only the beginning of Ye Fei’s grand plot.
Afterwards, he will interconnect and assault Chen Luo from all sides!
Ye Fei paused for a moment before dialing a number, this time phoning Li Xiangyun to schedule a meeting at Nanshan Cafe for tomorrow.
He placed an important chess piece, Li Xiangyun, adjacent to Chen Luo, and this chess piece should finally perform its role.
The next morning.
Ye Fei and Li Xiangyun met at Nanshan Cafe.
Li Xiangyun was anxiously waiting for Ye Fei’s arrival in a secluded room within Nanshan Café; his meeting with Ye Fei today was perilous and could utterly backfire.
Because the Qizheng Group was in danger and panicked at the time, they increased surveillance on any executives or high-ranking employees within the company.
So Ye Fei contacted him during this critical moment, and if his meeting with Ye Fei is found, he will find himself in a risky position.
Minutes later, Ye Fei was a bit late as he wore a cashmere coat and wearing the blue and white enclosure scarf knitted by Luo Weiyu, and walked into the cafe.
“Young master Ye, you’ve arrived!,” Li Xiangyun spoke hurriedly.
When Ye Fei noticed Li Xiangyun’s worried look, he raised the corner of his lips slightly and responded nonchalantly, “Did I keep you waiting?.”
“I haven’t been here very long.” In fact, although Li Xiangyun said that, he had been waiting in this private room for half an hour.
Then Li Xiangyun looked around and questioned quietly, “Why didn’t you bring your people with you when you arrived here, Young Master Ye?.”
Ye Fei grinned warmly “Why? Are you afraid?.”
“Well, I’m concerned, but have you heard? My foster father and Chen Luo have both begun to believe that there is a traitor among us.”
Although Li Xiangyun is Duan Qizheng’s son and is highly regarded by him, at this moment, he was the traitor who provided Ye Fei with a wealth of direct information.
Ye Fei waved his hand, “You don’t have to worry about that. Instead, I’m here because I need you to do something for me.”
“Young Master Ye, please say.” Li Xiangyun behaved respectfully.
“Tomorrow, you will go to the Qizheng Group to arrange a board meeting, and you will directly have a confrontation against Chen Luo and Duan Qizheng and impeach them,” Ye Fei added, somewhat mischievously laughing, “I want you to fire Duan Qizheng, the chairman of the board, and to kick Chen Luo!.”
Dismiss the chairman and kick the vice president out of the company?
Li Xiangyun was taken aback by what Ye Fei said, and he quickly knew that Ye Fei was preparing for a showdown, and he wanted him to provoke his foster father and Chen Luo..
The start of a grand scheme is beginning, and the loud sounds of bells are ringing.
Li Xiangyun hesitated, asking back, “Young Master Ye, are you sure? I have to deal with my foster father and Chen Luo alone, I’m afraid I won’t be able to force them out of the company.”
Although he said it anxiously and hesitantly, in truth, he didn’t want to deal with Chen Luo and Duan Qizheng since he’s weak, so why should he fight them?
Anticipating that he was going to ask that question, Ye Fei took out a paper without saying anything, then mumbled, “Take a look.”
The document in Ye Fei’s hand was rather thick, yet the white and black letters were visible.
Li Xiangyun then took a deeper look and discovered that this was a share agreement held by an investment business called Yang Fund, and it said that they owned 35.5 percent of the Qizheng Group’s shares.
And the owner of this Yang Fund business is the Ye family.
Li Xiangyun clutched the document, trembled slightly, and was nearly unable to contain his joy.
“Tomorrow, the board of directors will meet,” Ye Fei added. “I’ve already made preparations for the meeting. There will be directors who will back you up.”
Li Xiangyun’s inner delight was apparent, and he nodded frequently.
“From tomorrow on, you will be my secret spy at Qizheng Group,” Ye Fei responded casually.
“Yes, Young Master Ye, I will absolutely live up to your expectations, and I will do it for you,” Li Xiangyun exclaimed, overjoyed.
Li Xiangyun was well aware that he would soon become Ye Fei’s most devoted dog!
Although he was simply a dog under Ye Fei, he would be able to make a decision in the Qizheng Group dismissing both Duan Qizheng and Chen Luo!
