Compared to the many methods of transportation on earth, the Sines Continent only had the single method of traveling in horse carriages, which was without a doubt worse.
But compared to other horse carriage companies, the largest horse carriage company in the Lampuri Kingdom, the Fersen Carriage Company was quite punctual normally.
Xu Yi came a bit later than when the horse carriage arrived and he came just in time to see Akali jump out of a horse carriage.
When she jumped down and saw Xu Yi, Akali excited ran over.
“Sir chairman, Im back!”
Seeing Akalis excited appearance, Xu Yi couldnt help revealing a smile.
This little girl had been rather sad lately, but after going home for New Years, she seemed to have returned to normal.
Xu Yi rather like this little girl Akali who was lively and happy, but once she became depressed, it made people feel it was a shame.
“Un, welcome back.” Xu Yi responded with a smile. His eyes looked at the two horse carriages behind Akali and gave a nod to Evita who came out after Akali. Then he looked at the two men and three women beside her who were around the same age.
If his guesses werent wrong, these five should be the five classmates Akali mentioned in her letter last time.
As expected, when she saw Xu Yis eyes falling onto the five of them, Akali excitedly introduced them to Xu Yi, “Sir chairman, they are the five classmates I mentioned to you before. What do you think”
Xu Yi couldnt help smiling, “Akali, Im recruiting magicians. Could it be that you want me to tell how strong their magic is just based on their appearance” He reached his hand out to the five of them after saying, “These students, welcome to Banta City. I am the Frestech Chamber of Commerces chairman Xu Yi.”
The five youths shook hands with Xu Yi while looking over him with eyes filled with curiosity.
When it was the turn of a girl who was rather tall with black curls, she suddenly revealed a smile and said, “Sir chairman, although Akali said that you were young and handsome, we never believed it. We always thought that to become a companys chairman, one should at least be an uncle. I never thought that now that Ive seen you, you are even younger than I imagined. Sir chairman, you arent that much older than us, right”
Xu Yi revealed a faint smile, “You arent the first people who are curious or doubtful about my age. I am twenty eight this year, but compared to you, I can be considered an uncle. At least Still keeps calling me uncle.”
“Still” The three girls looked at each other with surprised looks. Another girl who was rather short and chubby suddenly asked in a mysterious manner, “Sir chairman, according to what Akali said, you and Stills relationship is quite good. Could it be that you are already…..in that kind of relationship”
Without waiting for Xu Yis response, the man who had shaken his hand and introduced himself as Schoch suddenly said with a soft snort, “Bella, dont speak nonsense. Still wasnt interested in any of the male students back in school, how could she suddenly feel anything for chairman Xu”
Bella rolled her eyes at Schoch and said without any politeness, “Chairman Xu isnt a little boy like you, it isnt strange if Still likes him. Let me tell you, chairman Xu is this young and handsome, and he is the chairman of a company. Even I would like him, dont you say so, sir chairman”
Xu Yi waved his hand without knowing whether to laugh or cry, “Young miss Bella, please dont kid with me. Still and I dont have that kind of relationship, I just have a good relationship with Stills grandfather Great Magician Camilla. Adding in the fact that Still works for my company and normally interacts with me, our relationship is just not bad.”
“Lies.” Akali on the side suddenly gave a soft snort as she muttered this.
Xu Yi looked at her and didnt pursue the matter as he turned to call the horse carriage he had already prepared. He first had the driver head around Banta City to let them become familiar with the area, also going to the Frestech Chamber of Commerces repair center in Banta City.
After seeing all the magic machines in the repair center, the students couldnt help revealing looks of surprise.
Especially when they saw the Magic Lamp. Not only did the three girls really like it, even the two boys couldnt help revealing looks of praise.
After circling the city, the horse carriage arrived at a factory outside the city.
After seeing the three workshops on the empty space, these youths revealed a bit of disappointment.
Bella seemed like someone who couldnt keep their words in. After looking at the somewhat shabby factories other than the new factory, she couldnt help saying to Xu Yi, “Sir chairman, are these all the factories under the Frestech Chamber of Commerce This is just too small, it cant even compare to a casual factory that we saw under the large companies from before.”
Schoch also revealed his disdain as he said with as snort, “Thats right, with such a small factory, it seems like your Frestech Chamber of Commerce isnt anything great. Its fine if Akali likes to boast, but Evita has never boasted before. How could you deceive us like Akali did by saying that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was a very good company and that it was very promising working here”
Evita had a gentle personality and being scolded by Schoch like this, her face instantly turned red and actually didnt know what to say.
Akali reprimanded back without any courtesy, “What do you know Dont look down on the fact that the factory isnt big, but dont you know that even with the largest factory not being used last year, our factory has already made many kinds of magic machines If you look around Banta City now, I can guarantee that you will find out Frestech Chamber of Commerces things in every house! Let me tell you, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce has only existed for half a year and its already this strong, you dare say that there are no prospects to working here Humph! And youre not embarrassed to talk about me and Evita. Weve only worked a few months here last year and weve already earned over a hundred gold coins. How about you Waiting around your house not doing anything and only knowing how to rely on your mother and father, so embarrassing!”
Everyone was stunned.
Although Schoch said in front of Xu Yi that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had no future and his tone was quite sour, no one would have thought that Akali would actually react this strongly. Not leaving any face for Schoch at all.
Schochs face turned white and green. After changing several times, he gave a strong snort and angrily said, “Akali, I only came to give you and Evita face, but I never thought you thought of me like this. Alright, since you like this broken company, then you can just keep working here. This small company without a future cant enter my eyes! Let me tell you, the large companies in Anvilmar City have approached me, but I havent replied to them! For a magical genius like me, even if Im forced to work for a company, I should enter a large company like the Chimera Chamber of Commerce. I definitely will not enter this poor little company without a future at all!”
Seeing that Schoch was about to charge off in anger, Xu Yi knit his brows and moved in front of him.
“What Chairman Xu, you dont let people leave” Schoch angrily looked at Xu Yi as he spoke.
Xu Yi revealed a faint smile and shook his head, “No, my place here is not a bandit nest, of course you can leave when you wish. But classmate Schoch, if I was you, I wouldnt choose to leave now because if you leave, you wouldnt be able to refute Akalis words. Wouldnt that prove that her words are correct”
“Of course it isnt like that!” Schoch flew into a rage. He looked at Akali and wanted to reprimand her, but he felt it was too embarrassing to argue with a girl. He could only give a strong snort and turn his head.
Seeing this scene, not only was Xu Yi not nervous at all, rather he almost broke out in laughter.
These fellows, they really were young people.
“Un…..Classmate Schoch, I wont oppose you leaving, but I dont agree to your appraisal of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce from before. There is a saying in my hometown that you cant say anything if you dont investigate. You dont know anything about our Frestech Chamber of Commerce and you already determined that our company has no future, this conclusion is rather rash.” Xu Yi said, “Although our Frestech Chamber no Commerce only has these factories, I can give you some data, so you might as well listen with your classmates.”
Hearing this, the five youths couldnt help paying attention to Xu Yi.
“The first number is that our Frestech Chamber of Commerces total income in the last half a year is two hundred three thousand four hundred and ninety four gold coins.”
The five youths called in surprise at the same time. It was even Evita and Akalis first time hearing such comprehensive numbers, so they couldnt help revealing surprised looks.
To these youths from normal families, two hundred thousand gold coins was a number they usually could never touch. They couldnt even think of such an astronomical number.
But for the Frestech Chamber of Commerce made by this young chairman Xu, it actually made this much money by selling products in half a year.
“Sir chairman, then can you tell us how much money you made” Cecilia of the three girls who had been rather silent asked this.
Xu Yi nodded with a faint smile, “This question is the right thing to ask. For a chamber of commerce, the important thing is not how much it has sold, but how much it has earned. This is the second number I want to tell you. In the past half a year, our Frestech Chamber of Commerces total revenue was over one hundred and forty thousand gold coins.”
Everyone was shocked.
According to what Xuu Yi said, the Frestech Chamber of Commerces profit margin was quite high.
“Those two numbers are just to tell you that although our Frestech Chamber of Commerce cant be considered a large company right now, we definitely arent a company without a future. Rather, our Frestech Chamber of Commerces prospects for development is very good. After another period of time, we will be opening a new factory in the neighbouring Karma City and within the year, well also build another new production base in Banta City. According to the plan, the area of the new production base will even be bigger than Banta City. Do you think that a small company without a future can have such a large and long term plan”
“Area surpassing Banta City” Akali looked at Xu Yi in surprise and couldnt help asking, “Sir chairman, I feel that you can boast even more than me.”
Xu Yi laughed, “Of course this isnt boasting, youll know in the future. Of course, to all of you, our Frestech Chamber of Commerces plans dont matter that much. I think what you rather care about is your own income. Lets use Akali as an example. She and Evita came to work for our Frestech Chamber of Commerce last August and has been working for our company for less than five months. If you add up all the income, it is like Akali said, she has already earned over a hundred gold coins. And this was based on the fact that the two of them had a base wage of fifteen gold coins last year. From this year forward, the two of them are second level researchers for our company and their monthly wage has been increased to twenty five gold coins from fifteen gold coins.”
“Twenty five gold coins” Bella said in surprise, “This isnt low even for Anvilmar City.”
“That is only the base wage.” Xu Yi said with a smile, “Other than this, every time you invent a new magic machine or youve made some improvements to a magic machine, the company will also give you extra cash awards. The award amount isnt set, but the lowest amount is twenty gold coins and there is no upper limit. With our companys emphasis on creating new products, one can frequently earn these cash awards.”
“Un, Akali and I received seventy gold coins as rewards last year.” Evita timely added this in.
Akali grumbled and said in a dissatisfied voice, “That is because were not strong enough, otherwise we could even receive more. Look at Great Magician Camilla, because he worked with our company, he received over a thousand gold coins. Hes much stronger than us.”
Everyone couldnt help rolling their eyes at all. Great Magician Camilla was a Great Magician, what did you have that could compare to him
But based on what Xu Yi, Akali, and Evita said, the five youths could tell that if they worked for the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, they might really earn quite a bit.
Seeing the eyes of the five youths light up, even Schoch seriously considering this, Xu Yi couldnt help revealing a smile.
Not afraid that they wouldnt be moved, but it was easier to take care of once they were moved.-
