“T–This is like giving us free money!” Patrick was shocked, Susanne, beside him, could hold back her surprise. She almost shouted but quickly covered her mouth.
It was as if they were being handed a treasure trove!
Complete control over fund allocation and full authority to oversee the entire project implementation? This was an unprecedented level of power!
The substantial financial resources worth billions virtually became Patrick and Susanne’s personal assets.
Zoe might have dreamed of kicking them out after the contract was signed, but at this point, it was nothing but a fantasy.
“Well, you are His Lordship’s in–laws,” Bruno explained, relieved to finally have the contract’s terms received well.
It was clear that he had come to Chesire Group to give away money, and it was all meant to win over Patrick and Susanne. If Alexander were happy, the Severn family would not have trouble making money. With Alexander’s support, the Severn family could easily earn substantial profits!
Whether it was 4.5 billion, 7.5 billion, 12 billion, or 15 billion dollars… It was all within reach!
“Do any of you have any objections to this contract?” Bruno gestured to the screen, displaying the agreement to everyone. Then, he looked around at Donovan and the others and calmly continued, “If there are no objections, let’s proceed with signing.”
Everyone stared at the contract’s clauses on the big screen. The bolded words were like the forbidden fruit, so enticing yet so deadly.
Donovan, Zoe, and Chesire Group’s top executives knew exactly what these words meant. Signing the contract would mean that nobody would dare to defy or challenge Patrick and Susanne. Instead, they would be at the mercy of the couple. Any notions of crossing them or kicking them out of the company after the contract was signed would be impossible.
As for not signing the contract? With a massive project worth 4.5 billion dollars
Bruno, perceptive as ever, noted their expressions and could not help but sneer. What’s wrong? Do you all have a problem with this? Well, if you do, there’s no need to sign the contract.”
Then, Bruno glanced at Patrick and Susanne before adding, “I formally invite Patrick and Susanne to join Severn Group. They’ll remain in charge of the project. If Chesire Group doesn’t want to make money, there are plenty of other businesses eager to partner with us! After all, the Severn Group doesn’t lack potential collaborators.”
Bruno’s words shattered all of Donovan and Zoe’s fantasies.
Would they sign this?
Refusing to sign meant losing over 10 billion in profits, and the Chesire family’s hopes of moving from a second–tier family to a first–tier would be utterly
Signing the contract, however, would propel Patrick and Susanne to
unprecedented heights within the company. Even Donovan and Zoe would think twice before treating them with disdain, let alone subjecting them to previous mistreatment!
This single document would be the hammer that nails Patrick and Susanne’s firm position.
The furious Zoe glared at Patrick and Susanne as she said harshly, “I think this contract…”
Did Zoe just attempt to intervene?
“Who do you think you are?!” Bruno did not give her a chance to continue as he snapped at her. “Sir Chesire, how many times must I say this? This contract is only to be discussed with Patrick. Who is this woman? Who does she think she is to negotiate with me? I’ll increase the project funding to 7.5 billion dollars, but this woman needs to get out of my sight immediately! Get her out of here!”
