Chapter 793 – Kameda Masao
Feng Yu was in no hurry. He sipped on his tea slowly and waited for Donald to make his decision. If Feng Yu showed that he was anxious, he would have to offer a higher price.
Donald was a brilliant businessman, and Feng Yu also wanted to learn from him. Even if they can’t be friends now, they might still have the chance to cooperate in the future.
Feng Yu had no experience in managing properties. After he bought the Empire State Building, he must hire someone to manage it too. It’s not a bad idea to let Donald manage the building for him as he is in the property business for many years.
“How much are you offering? I only have 50% shares. How are you going to buy the other 50%?” Donald asked.
Feng Yu laughed. “That is my problem. The management rights will be given to you only. It will be like you own the building too.”
Donald shook his head. “You don’t understand. Most of the Empire State Building is rented out to 2 property companies. They set up a management company to manage the Empire State Building. It will not be easy to get back the management rights from them.”
“I know you have ways to kick them out, right? This way, the value of your shares will rise. Also, after buying the building, I will renovate both the interior and exterior. It will be easier to manage than before. You will be making a lot of money.” Feng Yu laughed.
If the Empire State Building is bind by long-term leases to two companies, it would be useless for Feng Yu to buy it. Feng Yu would not be able to make any money from the building and can’t rename it to China State Building. Feng Yu intends to let Donald manage the day-to-day operations of the building, but Kirilenko and he will have the overall control of the building.
Although this would increase the purchasing price of the Empire State Building, they can make more money in the long-term. The recovery of the US property market will happen in another 1 to 2 years. This investment will not make any losses.
“If it is this problem, I can help you. You mentioned that you will lend me a sum of money?” Donald looked at Feng Yu seriously.
“That’s right. I can also tell you something about me. I am the third-biggest shareholder of Microsoft after Bill and Paul. You can go and find out.”
Feng Yu used his status as Microsoft’s shareholder to persuade Donald.
Donald was shocked. Feng Yu was Microsoft’s third shareholder? That means his net worth is more than 2 billion USD?
This Feng Yu should have no problem buying the Empire State Building.
“How much can you lend me?” Donald was very excited, but his tone was still calm.
“How much do you need?” Feng Yu asked him back.
Donald’s eyes grew wide. Does that mean Feng Yu would lend me as much as I want?
“50 million USD!” Donald said a significant amount. The market price of the Empire State Building was slightly more than 50 million USD. Of course, if those two tenants are not around, the value will be doubled after renovation. Donald was confident that he would increase the value of the Empire State Building to over 100 million after a year.
Feng Yu looked at Donald and saw him frowned. He smiled and replied. “Sure.”
“Really? That’s great!” Donald thought Feng Yu would reject him. He did not expect Feng Yu to agree immediately.
“But this is a big amount. If I charge you the current bank interest, it will be very high. I will offer you an alternative. I will lend you this 50 million USD for 5 years. During these 5 years, your company will help me manage the Empire State Building as interest for the amount I lend you. Do you agree?”
5 years is enough for Feng Yu to train someone in property management. Even if it is a fresh graduate, he will have enough experience.
Donald would be managing the Empire State Building, but in reality, it would be harder for him to own it in the future.
Donald looked at Feng Yu for a while. “I want to keep 5% of the shares of the building.” He does not want to give up on the building. This was his dream. But Feng Yu was willing to lend him 50 million, and he does not need to sell off all his shares in the building to raise funds.
“No problem. But you need to pay your share for the renovation of the building.” You want to keep some of the shares, then you have to pay the price. Feng Yu does not mind letting him own 5%. Anyway, it’s only 5%, and Feng Yu could buy back those shares by force in the future.
“Ok. That’s settled then. I will make sure the two troublemakers move out within 3 months. But I hope we can sign a confidential agreement.”
“That’s what I wanted too. I will buy your shares and transfer the 50 million USD into your account 3 months later.
Kameda Masao was at a prison in Tokyo today. He was not there to visit any friend. He was there to pass a message from Feng Yu to someone in the Prison’s hospital.
Hideki Yokoi was in the hospital’s bed. Although he was serving his sentence, he does not need to live in the cell with others. But his movements were confined to the compound of this hospital. He still got to serve slightly more than 1 year in prison.
“Hideki Yokoi, someone is here to see you.” A warden entered Hideki Yokoi’s ward.
Hideki Yokoi frowned. He thought it was his family member visiting him, and there were problems with his company.
Hideki Yokoi nodded, and Kameda Masao entered with the warden. Hideki Yokoi was well-taken care of in prison as his family had used their connections. He had never thought of escaping. Even if he wants to escape, he was too old. That’s why he had more freedom.
Hideki Yokoi frowned as he looked at the man who entered. He had never met him before. Was he new stuff hired by his son? Bastard! The company is on the verge of closing, and we owe so much money. He should be retrenching staff and not hiring new staff!
“Mr. Hideki Yokoi. My name is Kameda Masao. I am representing Mr. Feng Yu to offer you a business deal.”
Hideki Yokoi was puzzled. Who is Kameda Masao and Feng Yu? Also, what business deal is he talking about? Who would want to do business with him in his current state?
“Mr. Hideki Yokoi, it will be beneficial to your family if you do business with us. Your body will not last any longer. If you pass away before your plan succeeds, then your family will have no chance to return to its former glory. Your two sons will definitely have no chance.” Kameda Masao said casually.
Hideki Yokoi’s eyes brighten up. What does this man mean? Does he know something?
“I would like to speak with this gentleman in private.” Hideki Yokoi said.
The warden thought for a while and went out. Hideki Yokoi is a tycoon, and even he is hospitalized in the prison hospital, he had special privileges.
“Mr. Kameda, what do you mean?”
