So loosely the plot goes like this (for this section).
Two companies, one small (eco tech), one large (international semi-conglommerate) had one CEO (eco tech company) and one major head of the company (the conglommerate) have an affair together. This produced a child (who is the MC), MC grows up with mother as a bastard child. During that time, the CEO of the small company, let’s call him G, managed to buy up a large amount of stock from the large company through using the person he had an affair with, “M”.
MC, realizes that M’s company is in trouble because G owns most of her shares.
So he maneuvers to help G merge with another company to keep the smaller one stable, since most of the way the small company keeps stable is to use the revenue from the larger company. He succeeds and it goes better than planned because it turns into an acquisition, which gives a larger market share.
MC also is trying to force G to give up the shares in the conglommerate, but G isn’t willing to do so.
G has sold a bunch of the eco company shares to relatives to try to prevent the company from being controlled. (If I remember correctly, there is a cap on the number of controlling shares? Something like that.)
So MC finds the shareholders that G has entrusted with the controlling part of the stock, buys the stock from G’s relatives to try to get G to give up his stock in larger company, so MC’s mother can get back her control in the conglommerate. Make a trade–MC gives back the shares he has of the small company so then G will give up his shares in the conglommerate. He’s almost succeeded and is willing to do a trade. He has one person left.
MC doesn’t want to own either company, though there is pressure on both sides to do so. He wants to start his own securities company. (Installing locks, etc). But feels obligated to detangle the companies from one another because he views G as a terrible person who ruined his mother (who jointly owns the conglommerate with her sisters… or used to).
And this is where I’m stuck. G has to retaliate, even if it’s his son. (They have bad blood between them. G was married at the time MC’s mother was pregnant and then abandoned him and his mother.) I just can’t figure out what G would do next since I technically don’t know that much about business.
It’s going too smoothly for MC. He needs one final hiccup that’s not illegal and will not end up with him with a company he doesn’t want to own.
