Winfrid came to find Jamie to inquire about his condition, and then Jamie told the truth.
Wendy had made public her 50 billion dollars which was an open secret. After Winfrid confirmed it, again and again, he was dismayed…
He had invested two or three billion dollars in the Porter Group alliance. With the solid foundation of Giradia Group, he had thought it hopeful.
“I regret it!” Winfrid was so angry that he almost beat his chest on the spot.
After all, Jamie had come to the house of the Hopp family to ask him to withdraw the capital quickly, but he hadn’t put his trust in him.
Walter had been ridiculed by everyone for his decision to withdraw the investment. Now it seemed that he was indeed the richest man, and his sense of crisis was much stronger than theirs.
Winfrid looked at Jamie and said helplessly, “Is there any way to retrieve my funds?”
Jamie was at a loss, “Why did Mr. Winfrid ask such naive questions? If we want to collect the money, we must collect all that from the investors without exception.”
Winfrid sighed dismally.
At this time, everyone had discovered that something was wrong with the Giradia Group, but they were just deceiving themselves, saying that the Giradia Group was having a last try.
“One more question, where did the 50 billion dollars come from?” Winfrid said bitterly.
“It’s mine!” Jamie said calmly.
“Pft! You have so much money?” Winfrid looked at Jamie in shock.
“Don’t you believe it?” Jamie frowned and looked down at his own attire.
He was dressed in a boss suit that looked tidy and bright, and it could be told from first sight that he was a leading figure.
Winfrid smiled wryly and said, “I have underestimated you. I didn’t expect you to have more money than me! Mr. Evans, considering our friendship, please help me contact Ms. Wendy to initiate a few joint projects.”
“The profits of the Deepwater Port are so huge that the Giradia Group can’t collect them alone. I can play a part in it, at least to ensure that the project will go on undisturbed.”
Jamie nodded and said with a smile, “Okay, I will tell Ms. Wendy later.”
Gerard was the leading businessman of Mimar City, and Winfrid was also an influential businessman in Neva Province. Jamie had no reason to reject his offer of cooperation.
The profits of the Deepwater Port project in the East Bay were too high, and there would definitely be someone who intended to sabotage it. With a few capable people joining in, it would discourage the plotters from interfering with it.
“Thank you, Mr. Evans. That’s all I want to say, so I’m leaving first. Also, I have to remind you that Ms. Porter has returned to Emperia City, so you have to be careful.” Winfrid said in a low voice.
“Thank Mr. Winfrid for reminding me, I will be careful,” Jamie said with a smile.
What did Natasha return to Emperia City for?
It must be to mobilize funds or ask for reinforcements. Jamie had already expected this.
After Lydia sent Winfrid out of the office, she turned her head and said to Mozart, “Wouldn’t it be too direct and high–profile to tell him about the news like this?”
Jamie said, “Wendy has already announced that she has received an investment of 50 billion dollars. I’m just telling him truthfully.”
Lydia said thoughtfully, “It can be seen that Mr. Winfrid seems to regret it.”
“Do you not regret it after several billion dollars are invested in vain?” Jamie asked with a sneer.
Winfrid wasn’t as rich as Walter, and his heart ached severely when billions of dollars were thrown away. It was almost half of his life’s savings.
At this moment, Natasha was at the Porter family in Emperia City.
The elders of the Porter family looked at Natasha with cold eyes.
Normally, Natasha was the source of their wealth who shouldn’t be offended. But this time, she had invested the money of the entire Porter Group into Neva Province, and there was a possibility of losing all the money, which made them very anxious.
“Grandpa, I was a little thoughtless this time, but it’s not impossible to tide over the crisis,” Natasha said with a pale face.
Mr. Porter sat on the tutor’s chair and looked at her coldly.
After a long while, he said, “How much money can we withdraw?”
Natasha pursed her lips and said, “I’ve already put everything in, and there are about two or three billion left in my hand… If I want to withdraw at this time, I can withdraw at most… ten percent!”
The scheme designed by Wendy was too intricate. It was composed of a series of interconnected traps, and once she stepped into one of them, she was doomed not to be able to escape.
With only 10% of the funds withdrawn, the Porter Group suffered a huge loss. Even if these funds were retrieved, they would definitely not be able to maintain the operation of such a large company as the Porter Group. Moreover, there were so many powerful companies investing so much money in the Porter Group. If Natasha lost, she would be the one to blame.
No one could afford to be responsible for it.
The Porter family couldn’t bear the loss of the Perkins family’s two billion dollars alone.
It was true that Jade would share the responsibility with Natasha, but the Jade family would definitely blame it on her.
“Natasha, you trash! You have invested so much money, but you are defeated by a company from Neva Province!”
“Natasha, what the hell are you doing? Everyone trusted you so much, but you have failed their expectations.”
“You still have the face to come back to Emperia City to ask for money? You have lost all the money we give you. How much more do you want?”
After everyone in the Porter family heard Natasha’s words, they couldn’t help being furious.
Of tens of billions of dollars invested, at most 10% could be withdrawn?
Moreover, a large portion of the money was from reputed families. Among them, the Ortiz family invested two billion dollars.
Who could afford this debt?
Natasha said in a deep voice, “We haven’t lost yet. We still have the ace to play!”
“Grandpa, lend me some people… I’ll go back and turn the tables!”
Mr. Porter patted his forehead lightly, then he said in a low voice, “Natasha, this is your last chance, and I hope your will seize it.”
“I’ll give you whoever you want. But if you can’t complete this task, then you have to take the final blame alone!”
Natasha nodded solemnly and said, “Grandpa, don’t worry, I will definitely do it!”
Natasha’s parents looked at their daughter with worried eyes at this moment.
They knew that their daughter was too proud to bow her head. She must have been stuck in the dire predicament that made her return to Emperia City and beg for help everywhere.
“The Evans family has invested five billion dollars. Contact their members and let them come forward.” After pondering for a moment, Mr. Porter said to Natasha.
“I’m also thinking about this. I’ll go to the Evans right now,” Natasha replied in a deep voice.
The origin of the predicament was Mozart, who was a member of the Evans family in Emperia City.
The Evans family must not be willing to lose five billion dollars for no reason like this. This unparalleled business war had really involved too many forces.
