Luke’s words surprised everyone.
Roberts Property was an established enterprise in Mimar City and was at the top among many enterprises. Their shares used to be hard to buy. But now, they wanted to increase capital and expand shares?!
“Mr. Luke, are you joking with us? Is your company short of funds?” Hannah asked Luke directly and had forgotten what had happened to Joe just now.
Luke smiled lightly, he said, “Of course not. Our company is preparing to go public!”
“Everyone knows that our Roberts Group is very competitive and established. Many properties in Mimar City are built by us. We didn’t tell the public about our increase in capital and shares. It is a benefit for our internal employees. We’ll let them subscribe for shares in advance and distribute dividends after we go public!”
“As we are on good terms and Natalie is here, I want you to know the good news.”
The Johnson families and Hannah were surprised and soon became excited.
If they could subscribe for some shares of Roberts Group, they would get considerable profits after it went public. After all, this was the welfare of internal employees, but Luke was so kind to leak the information to them!
“Mr. Luke, I will invest 10 million. For the sake of our relationship, would you give me more dividends?” Hannah smiled.
“No problem. You and Natalie are close friends. I’ll give you ten percent more in proportion. Is that okay?” Luke replied nobly.
Natalie pondered for a moment and said, “Mr. Luke, I’d like to invest 20 million!”
Luke roared with laughter and said, “Great! Natalie, I will give you 15% more of the dividends.”
Luisa said happily, “You’re so generous!”
As a man who had a long experience, Hector didn’t doubt Luke at all. Anderson knew what Luke did was all for Natalie. Nothing worthwhile ever came easy in life. But since Luke was pursuing Natalie, it was reasonable to provide them with these benefits.
Natalie didn’t have much money left. 20 million was the maximum she could provide. She still had to ask Luisa and Hector to chip in. This was an opportunity for them. After getting the shares of Roberts Group, they could get considerable dividends every year after it went public.
“Mr. Luke, you are so generous! A toast to you!” Natalie held the glass and said to Luke.
“It was nothing. Just call me Luke!” Luke said with a smile.
Luisa immediately pinched Natalie and said, “That’s right. Mr. Luke treats you so well. Don’t alienate yourself from him!”
Natalie said bashfully, “Okay. I’ll call you Luke.”
Luke nodded happily. This was a big step for their relationship.
After dinner, Luke asked someone to send Natalie and others back.
Hector shook hands with Luke, he said, “Mr. Luke, Natalie has a hard time these days. I really appreciate your help for her.”
“Uncle Hector, you’re very welcome. I’m very happy to help!” Luke said nobly.
Hector called Joe in the car and asked him to come to the Johnson family, saying that there was something important to discuss.
Joe respected Hector very much and came to the Johnson family in advance.
“Abraham, I have good news here. It can bring you a bunch of money.” Hector smiled.
“Uncle Hector, I appreciate your offer.” Joe smiled.
In fact, he was not really interested in money. Those tycoons in prison always bribed him with hundreds of millions.
Hector said, “Prepare the money as much as you can. If it is not enough, I will help you.”
Joe smiled, “Uncle Hector, could you tell me what business makes you so sure?”
“Well Luke told us today that Roberts Property is ready to go public, but the news has not been revealed yet. It is only aimed at internal employees to increase capital and expand shares. Roberts Property is a well-developed enterprise. It’s a good thing to hold their shares!” Hector said to Joe.
Joe felt something weird.
Today, he heard Gerard say that Roberts Group was in serious deficit in real estate and Matthew was not willing to lend to them.
But now it was going to go public?
“Roberts Property… The chairman is Howard?” Joe asked.
“So you also know Luke’s father, Mr. Roberts!” Hannah, who had followed Natalie back, said in a voice dripping with sarcasm.
Joe said calmly, “If that’s the case, you’d better not buy their shares. Roberts Group has suffered a serious internal deficit and will go bankrupt at any time. I think they want to run away with the money by the name of expanding shares!”
When everyone heard this, their eyes were wide open.
Natalie said solemnly, “Abraham, you’re talking nonsense. Mr. Luke is very kind. Anderson won’t cheat us!”
Luisa also said, “That’s right. Mr. Luke said it’s for internal welfare. So he tells us in advance because he has a good feeling about Natalie! You b*stard. Be grateful.”
Hannah was silent this time. She didn’t say a word against Joe.
“Abraham, don’t be jealous. Since you don’t want to invest, I’ll invest three million in your name.” Hector shook his head and said helplessly.
Joe gave a wry smile. “No, you have to trust me! I had dinner with Gerard tonight, and they told me themselves.”
Luisa laughed, she said, “Bullsh*t!”
“The distinguished guest Mr. Hopp waiting for at the Gloire Hotel must be a great leader from the top. You have to know yourself better. As a prison guard in a village, do you think you’re able to keep Mr. Hopp waiting at the door?”
“Next time when you brag, pay attention to the details. You d*mbass!”
Natalie was also full of displeasure, she said in a deep voice, “Abraham, you’re always ungrateful. Please don’t say this cr*p, and don’t curse Mr. Luke again!”
Joe shrugged helplessly and didn’t explain it any further.
Hector said firmly, “That’s it. I will help you invest 3 million to buy shares. Don’t sell them to others.”
Joe had no choice but to say, “Thank you.”
Hector looked at him and shook his head, thinking that Joe’s personality might be formed by working in the small prison. After a few more years in the metropolis, he should get better.
Hannah also said goodbye to Natalie while Joe was going out. She followed him out and flashed in front of him with a cold expression.
“What’s up?” Joe looked at her.
If Hannah wasn’t Natalie’s close friend, he wouldn’t bother to talk to her.
