“Sure,” said Gu Ning.
After that, Gu Ning and Jing Yunyao went to the private room booked by Peng Zijie.
About five minutes later, Peng Zijie came, arriving five minutes before the appointed time.
A man and a woman, who were his secretaries, followed him.
Peng Zijie was a tall man in his early forties, with a plain face, and he was wearing a formal suit today.
Gu Ning stood up and calmly greeted him.
“Nice to meet you, Vice President Peng.”
Jing Yunyao also stood up but said nothing.
She should be quiet when there was nothing she could do.
Peng Zijie squinted at Gu Ning.
“Nice to meet you, Chairman Gu.”
“Have a seat.” He walked to the sofa and nodded at Gu Ning.
He was very arrogant.
Once they were seated, Peng Zijies secretary ordered a waiter to serve them tea.
Peng Zijie didnt open his mouth until the waiter was out.
“Since Chairman Gu is aware of todays meetings purpose, I think I should be straightforward.
Lanio wants Kouzi, so Ive been assigned to acquire it.
You can still be the manager with 10% shares of Kouzi after the acquisition, and Kouzi will become a third tier brand with the help of Lanio.”
It sounded attractive, but it was simply a trap.
Lanio was a famous international cosmetics corporation, so it would be very easy for Kouzi to gain greater fame if it was acquired.
Kouzi was popular now, but it still wasnt comparable to Lanio.
Lanio developed activities in over a hundred countries worldwide, and had hundreds of branches globally, whereas Kouzi was only a newly-established brand without a long history.
There was a huge gape between them.
If Gu Ning agreed to sell Kouzi to Lanio, she would lose absolute control of it.
However, the products of Kouzi could be effective due to her magical power.
If it was acquired by Lanio, Gu Ning wouldnt be able to put her magical power into it anymore.
It wasnt what Gu Ning wanted.
Although Kouzi wasnt as successful as Lanio for the time being, she believed that it could grow to be another famous international brand in the future.
Gu Ning didnt lack money at all, so she wasnt attracted to the conditions laid down by Lanio.
Gu Ning smiled, “Well, to be honest with you, I cant remember how many peers in the same industry as me have the idea to acquire Kouzi till now, but I have no intention to sell Kouzi.
I only accept business cooperation, and I believe the general manager of Kouzi has already told you that.”
“What Why” Peng Zijie was surprised.
He thought that Gu Ning agreed to meet him because she was willing to sell Kouzi.
“I dont want to sell Kouzi,” said Gu Ning with determination.
“Do you think its funny to fool me” Peng Zijie coldly stared at Gu Ning.
“Why do you say that” Gu Ning sneered with disdain.
“Youve visited my company a few times, and the general manager of my brand has told you that we dont want to sell Kouzi.
Its you who tried to threaten and bribe us.
Dont you think that its inappropriate”
Peng Zijie was struck dumb for a second.
“Chairman Gu, its your honor that Lanio chose your brand,” said Peng Zijie arrogantly as usual.
“I dont think so,” said Gu Ning in a cold tone.
“Chairman Gu, youre still too young to be a mature businesswoman,” said Peng Zijie.
“You dont know how fierce business competition can be.”
“I know, but dont think too highly of yourself,” said Gu Ning.
“Chairman Gu, I know that you have some connections, but people come and go for benefits and benefits only,” said Peng Zijie.
