I Started As A Novel Villain - Chapter 182
Duan Qizheng was staring at the results of the voting in front of him, exhibiting shock and surprise while feeling extremely taken aback.
How is this possible?
His eyes widened as he noticed how, except for him and Chen Luo, nearly everyone had raised their hands.
Looking at this scene, Li Xiangyun is extremely calm and unsurprised by the outcome, as he had already received support from these directors who worked in the Qizheng Group; fortunately, those who raised their hands were all important people who took on significant roles in the company’s success.
There were, however, several among them who Duan Qizheng considered as his confidants.
With the backing of over half of the directors, as well as Li Xiangyun, a total of eight people agreed to impeach Duan Qizheng and Chen Luo!
Duan Qizheng glanced at Chen Luo, and the two of them both sensed that something was amiss.
Chen Luo narrowed his eyes and soon realized who was working behind the scenes to help Li Xiangyun.
With such a familiar strategy, who else could it be except Ye Fei?
Chen Luo tightened his fists, knowing that he was in the midst of the most important and perilous moment in the Qizheng Group.
If he isn’t cautious, the Qizheng Group will abandon him, and he will be alone in Yanjing with no support!
Furthermore, if he loses the Qizheng Group’s financial support, bringing down Ye Fei and attacking him would become extremely tough and time-consuming!
Unless he can find a way to rely on a wealthy family like the Wei family, he would lose his chance to compete with Ye Fei.
At this moment, Li Xiangyun scoffed and asked coldly towards Duan Qizheng, “Chairman Duan, do you accept our decision?”
Duan Qizheng glared fiercely at the six people standing behind Li Xiangyun, then remarked solemnly: “Zhou Luo, you’re an elderly man who has switched ships. You helped us set the basis for the Qizheng Group in the beginning, and I have always regarded you as my own staff, yet you betrayed me! WHY!?.”
Zhou Luo was one of the six people who was bought by Ye Fei.
Hearing Duan Qizheng yell, Zhou Luo directly responded, with a tinge of remorse in his voice, “Sorry, Chairman, but Director Li has a valid point.”
“And you Zhu Yuanyi, you are one of the few people I trust the most, you were my right-hand man, if it wasn’t for you raising the necessary funds for the company when it was facing a difficult bankruptcy situation, then I’m afraid the company would have already gone bankrupt,” Duan Qizheng said, shaking his head, his face full of dissatisfaction. “We’ve been working together for almost 10 years, but how could you betray me like this?.”
Zhu Yuanyi is an old experienced worker at the Qizheng Group who was strongly trusted by Duan Qizheng, therefore his betrayal made Duan Qizheng feel like the world was against him because he typically treated Zhu Yuanyi pretty well, but he didn’t anticipate Zhu Yuanyi to support Li Xiangyun at this critical time.
Duan Qizheng couldn’t figure out what had happened to his company!
People’s hearts can only be described as very unpredictable.
Zhu Yuanyi is a man over fifty years old, with white temples and a firm complexion, and when he heard Duan Qizheng’s outrage, he immediately replied indifferently, “President Duan.”Please accept my apologies.”
The reason Zhu Yuanyi betrayed Duan Qizheng was also very simple: Duan Qizheng appointed Chen Luo to a very high authoritative position, and worse, it was only on his first day of work that he took the position of vice president, received a large portion of the company’s shares, and was on the same level of authority as Zhu Yuanyi and the other business veterans.
All of this was Duan Qizheng’s responsibility for focusing solely on one individual and lavishing him with privileges while failing to explain his conduct to his staff.
Ye Fei also considered Zhu Yuanyi’s affairs and threatened him with money, and as a result, Zhu Yuanyi was entirely bought by Ye Fei.
Duan Qizheng stared at them again, and the numerous directors standing behind Li Xiangyun also seemed to be firmly on Li Xiangyun’s side.
These six directors were either bribed by Ye Fei, bought by Ye Fei, or had a disagreement with Duan Qizheng’s company operations.
In short, as long as one was human, one would have flaws.
Ye Fei directed Friday and his other bodyguards to keep an eye on these Qizheng Group executives throughout this time period, specifically for this scenario!
He tried every means to get these people to support Li Xiangyun, in order to make Duan Qizheng realize how hopeless the situation was.
“Okay, fine! Excellent! ” Duan Qizheng fixed his gaze on Li Xiangyun and the six directors behind him, as he smiled angrily, “I can’t believe this. To think that I, Duan Qizheng, had actually raised a group of black-eye wolves! Ridiculous!!.”
He slammed the table fiercely, and the surface vibrated, splashing green tea everywhere.
When Li Xiangyun saw this, his eyes brightened and he sneered “Chairman Duan, you claimed we were black-eyed wolves, but if you hadn’t treated Chen Luo and us so unfairly, we may not have been where we are now.”
“More words are pointless. We now have six directors, as opposed to the four who did not back me. “Here’s the official paperwork of the votes that I prepared ahead of time,” Li Xiangyun pulled out a document and handed it to Duan Qizheng.
When Duan Qizheng viewed the document, he felt embarrassed.
In this way, among the thirteen directors, more than two-thirds have already supported Li Xiangyun, which made Duan Qizheng’s matter of being fired come true.
Knowing this, Duan Qizheng couldn’t help but panic, and yet he persisted as he came up with a logical, if angry, answer, “I have shares in the firm, and I own 35 percent of it. I’d like to call a shareholder meeting to re-elect the board of directors!”
Duan Qizheng intends to counterattack by utilizing his own shares in the firm.
“Shares?” “This is the stock holding agency permission agreement supplied to me by Yang Fund,” Li Xiangyun sneered, pulling out another document, “I now own 33.5 percent of the shares I was lent. Furthermore, because I already hold 5% of stocks and have the support of the board of directors, the shares in my possession are larger than yours!.”
Li Xiangyun’s eyes were frigid, and he smirked arrogantly all the time.
“What, 33.5 percent of the stock?” When Duan Qizheng viewed the paper agreement, his eyes expanded.
Yang Funds had acquired so many shares of the Qizheng Group without his acknowledgement!
Hearing this, Chen Luo had a shocked expression on his face.
Chen Luo knew. This time, it was all over…
There is no chance of a counterattack…
Of course, Duan Qizheng and Chen Luo are aware of Yang Fund’s business; they are an investment firm!
Chen Luo was likewise confident that Ye Fei had perfect control of the situation.
Duan Qizheng, who was in great shock, came to the same conclusion.
They both had pain and sorrow on their faces, knowing that the worst outcome of the situation had arrived.
Starting now, the surname Qizheng Group must be changed to Ye!
It will be known as the “Ye Subsidiary Group.”
