Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 755
Chapter 755 – Tony’s surprise
After the main conditions were settled, Bill Gates added some a few other conditions . When Lenovo market their new products, they must include Microsoft’s products in their advertisements . They must also help to push Microsoft’s products and display Microsoft logo .
Feng Yu agreed to this condition, but he also requests Microsoft to purchase Lenovo’s PC when they buy new PCs . Lenovo’s PC was still more advanced in some areas compared to other brands . Lenovo’s optical drive was much better than IBM .
For this condition, Bill Gates said he would add Lenovo into their procurement list . He doesn’t care about this . Microsoft would use any PC except for Apple and IBM . He also expressed that if Lenovo is willing to manufacture a batch of Microsoft PC for them, he doesn’t mind changing all his company’s PC to Lenovo .
But how much can Lenovo earn from this deal if they could not display their brand and just manufacture PC for Microsoft? At most, it is only 10,000 PC, and the profits will be about 1 million USD . Feng Yu would still owe Bill Gates a favor .
To be added on Microsoft procurement list, Microsoft China’s office will switch to Lenovo . After this, it is Liu Chuanzhi’s problem to convince Microsoft’s offices in other regions to change to Lenovo . Feng Yu had helped Liu Chuanzhi get this opportunity, and it is up to him whether if he could make full use of it .
Both men discussed a few other conditions, and these were minor terms to benefit both parties . Both sides agreed readily .
As for Paul Allen, he did not say a single word to Feng Yu . He was thinking about his NBA team . He planned to recruit a few more star players to Blazers . He must win the Championships to show Feng Yu!
The next day, Feng Yu brought his lawyer, Wilson, and a few other staffs to Microsoft’s headquarters . They had brought Lenovo’s authorization letter, proving Feng Yu could represent Lenovo in the US, including signing contracts .
Paul Allen was not around . But a signed contract on their exchange of shares was on the table . Feng Yu only have to sign on the contract .
There were a few sets of contracts on the table, and Feng Yu gestured to Wilson . Wilson immediately brought his men over to check the contracts . The amount involved in these contracts were astronomical . They had to be careful . Every contract had to go through 3 rounds of checks, before deciding whether Feng Yu could sign .
This might be troublesome, but Wilson and his staffs were getting paid well for all these works . Wilson’s law firm had signed a contract with Feng Yu . He will be paid a monthly amount + commission . The more work his firm does for Feng Yu, the more he will earn .
Wilson was considering whether if he should be Feng Yu’s personal lawyer . The rest of his clients can be pass to his staffs .
No one knows how much assets Feng Yu has . Even Feng Yu’s parents do not know . But Wilson knew much more than others . He was sure that what he knew was not all of Feng Yu’s assets, but it was enough to convince him to stay with Feng Yu!
“Want to try this cigar?” Bill Gates pushed his cigar box to Feng Yu .
Feng Yu casually lifts his right hand and someone behind quickly took a cigar out of the box . That man cut and roast the cigar before placing it between Feng Yu’s fingers .
Bill Gates was surprised . Feng Yu’s actions were smoother than him, the world’s richest man . Was this Feng Yu from some China mysterious ancient family?
“Where is Paul? I am still thinking of discussing basketball with him . ” Feng Yu asked .
Bill Gates replied: “He has his own company and is very busy . Since you also like basketball, both of you should be able to click well . ”
“Maybe . But I only like winning in basketball . I am not interested in losing . ”
Bill Gates kept quiet . Seems like Feng Yu and Paul can never be friends .
“Boss, this contract is fine . You can sign it now . ” Wilson passed a contract to Feng Yu .
Feng Yu took it and flipped it casually, before signing it .
The checking of the documents took the whole morning before Feng Yu signed all the contracts . During the wait, Feng Yu did not speak much to Bill Gates .
“Want to have lunch together? I can introduce you to the other directors . ”
“No, thanks . I will be attending the directors’ meeting two days later . I still have something on now . ”
Rejected . This new director from China declined Bill Gates’ invitation?! Bill Gates’ secretary, Tony, looked at Feng Yu is shocked . He had never seen anyone rejecting his boss’s invitation!
Even the US President, had to speak politely to Bill Gates . This Feng Yu was too arrogant!
But what was more shocking to Tony, was his boss did not get angry . He only laughed . Others might not understand Bill Gates well, but Tony knew his temper well . He could start scolding suddenly .
As Bill Gates’s secretary, Tony had been scolded by Bill Gates more than once . He had been scolded when Bill Gates was doing coding and was interrupted by him or interrupting Bill Gates when he was deep in thoughts .
Tony had only seen Bill Gates treating other arrogantly, and no one dares to reject him!
Maybe Bill Gates had faced rejections when he was starting out . But during that time, Tony still had not started working with Bill Gates . He had only joined Microsoft 4 years ago, and at that time, Microsoft had already launched its Office software . The company’s shares had also increased, and Bill Gates have what it takes to be proud .
That’s right, Bill Gates have the qualifications to be proud . This Feng Yu have what it takes to reject Bill Gates? Tony’s boss was the richest man in the world . Microsoft is one of the biggest companies in the world, the world’s top software development company . Who is this Feng Yu?
Although Feng Yu owns 15% of Microsoft shares and can be considered a top tycoon, the voting shares he owned was only 2% . If it weren’t for Bill Gates’s help, Feng Yu would not even qualify to enter the board!
Actually, Bill Gates does not mind Feng Yu rejecting him . Feng Yu had told him before that he does not want to be in the limelight . Also, Feng Yu had explained that he will be attending the meeting a few days later .
Paul Allen also seldom attend the company’s meeting . He had his own software company, and his company can be considered Microsoft’s competitor . But have Bill Gates say anything? Bill Gates also can’t force Paul Allen to shut down his company .
This was why Tony was still a secretary, and Bill Gates’s former secretary was already in the top management of the company .
Tony looked at Feng Yu as the latter was leaving . The directors meeting two days later should be interesting .
