Chapter 558 The Second Listed Company!
In the capital, people were still working on the fourth floor of the office building of the Siqi Pharmaceutical Limited Liability Company, where the PR marketing department located.
All the lights of several nearby buildings had been turned off. It was pitch-dark. Only the lights here were on again after it remained dark for a few hours.
At this time, all the staff in the PR marketing department had rushed back to the company.
Seeing the report on Fang Qiu’s Weibo, all the staff of the department were completely dumbfounded!
“Beep, beep, beep…” All of a sudden, a cell phone rang.
One of the staff took out his phone to take a look.
It was the network marketing company!
The person holding the phone was exactly the employee who was assigned to contact the network marketing company.
The supervisor asked, “Who is it?”
The staff member replied, “It’s from the network marketing company.”
Upon hearing that, the supervisor walked up directly with an unpleasant look on his face, took the phone, and put him on speaker while picking up the call.
“Hello?” The supervisor opened his mouth.
“Our cooperation is temporarily canceled.”
A decisive voice was heard on the other end of the phone. “We can’t meet your company’s requirements. Now the boy has released the evidence. If we continue to mobilize public opinion, we will definitely be seen through sooner or later. Moreover, our company has worked so hard to operate these marketing accounts. It will be easy for us to fall and be scolded by the netizens. Therefore, unless you have evidence, our cooperation will end here!”
Because he was on speaker, everyone in the PR department heard what he said.
For a moment, everyone present was anxious.
The supervisor was so worried that his forehead was covered with sweat.
It was only then that they finally understood the saying—It never rains, but it pours.
Not only were they refuted by Fang Qiu on Weibo, but they were also abandoned by the network marketing company. What should they do?
“Well, can you wait for a while?”
The supervisor looked pale and said, “We need some time to discuss!”
“All right,” the man answered and hung up the phone directly.
Immediately, a group of people gathered together for a meeting.
“What should we do now?”
The supervisor looked at the staff and said, “We’re now at stake. Although we’ve sent a lawyer’s letter, we didn’t expect that Fang Qiu had a backup plan. The test report in his hand now is the last straw to overwhelm our company. We must hold in there no matter what happens. We must not fall down!”
One of the staff members said, “I think we can question the authenticity of the test report in Fang Qiu’s hand. First, we need to distract people, and then we should make the same test report to try our best to save the situation!”
“No way.” As soon as someone suggested that, another person refuted it directly. “The test report released by Fang Qiu was made by the chemical laboratory of Capital University of Science and Technology. Once we question the authenticity of the test report, it is tantamount to questioning the professionalism of Capital University of Science and Technology. It is not good for our company to do that!”
“That’s right.” The supervisor immediately nodded in agreement and said, “Once we question the test report, Capital University of Science and Technology will inevitably stand out and confront us. This will undoubtedly increase the help of Fang Qiu and set up more enemies for us. This method is not feasible. Even if we want to question the authenticity of the test report, we must avoid the Capital University of Science and Technology. We can’t afford to offend them!”
“We don’t seem to have any option now.”
“This is a dead end!”
These people were trying to work out a solution.
Ten minutes later. “To solve the crisis this time, we have to release the test report immediately to confront Fang Qiu. Moreover, we must use the test report to prove that the pesticide residues of this medicine don’t exceed the standard.”
After discussing for a long time, they finally found a solution.
One of them asked. “Then, how are we going to avoid the Capital University of Science and Technology?”
“Don’t mention it at all.” The supervisor immediately said, “Don’t act like you are going to confront Fang Qiu. The most important thing is that don’t question the result of the Capital University of Science and Technology. We just need to show our own test result.”
Another person asked, “But what if our report shows that the pesticide residues of our medicine really exceed the standard?”
Upon hearing that, everyone was at a loss for words.
The supervisor said, “If it is really beyond the limit, then do everything possible to let it not exceed the limit!”
“Supervisor.” At this time, another man frowning stood out and asked, “What if Fang Qiu buys a pack of pills at random and goes to test it again and still finds that it exceeds the limit?”
As they heard that, the staff were also worried.
This was the key point of this crisis.
As for them, it was very difficult to defend against Fang Qiu. Maybe they could think of ways to deal with Fang Qiu’s disclosure, but they couldn’t stand it if Fang Qiu tested the drugs again and again.
What was more, it was an era of online development.
If Fang Qiu was provoked and decided to do a live broadcast test on Weibo directly, and the pesticide residues were beyond the standard, then their company would be completely destroyed.
One of them said, “Supervisor, I think we must first confirm whether it is this batch of drugs that exceed the limit or all of them. It should not be too big of a problem if only this batch exceeds. But if each batch is beyond the standard, then…”
“That’s enough.” The supervisor narrowed his eyes and said, “You guys continue to contact Fang Qiu. I’ll call the chairman of the board.”
After that, the supervisor immediately walked out of the office area and came to the rest area’s balcony. While feeling the wind, he took out his mobile phone and made a call.
In a presidential suite in a luxury hotel. “Beep, beep, beep…”
Commander Zuo, who was sitting on the sofa and looking at related information about the health summit, suddenly heard the vibration and ringtone of his mobile phone from the tea table. He glanced at it at first, then picked up his phone.
“Hello?” With a somewhat unpleasant tone, Commander Zuo picked up the phone.
“Sir, something went wrong.” The voice of the PR marketing department’s supervisor was heard on the other end of the phone. “When Fang Qiu publicly accused us on the Internet that the pesticide residues of our medicine exceed the standard, we immediately responded. It only took us 20 minutes to send a lawyer’s letter. But after we sent out the lawyer’s letter, Fang Qiu immediately posted a test report made by the chemical laboratory of Capital University of Science and Technology. The report clearly pointed out that the pesticide residues in the drug were beyond the standard set by the country.
“In order to prevent things from getting worse, I need to get your consent. And I also need the drug production safety department to test our drugs and show us the statistics of different batches of the drugs. Otherwise, it won’t be easy for us to respond.”
Hearing this, Commander Zuo, who was poker-faced, frowned slightly and vaguely had a bad feeling.
He was lost in thought.
It was not until then that he felt that he had been underestimating the boy named Fang Qiu.
The most important thing was that judging from the report of the PR department, Fang Qiu seemed to have been planning for this a long time ago. Was this a coincidence, or was he deliberately targeting at their company? Or was it an act of pure revenge?”
“Okay, I see.” Thinking of this, Commander Zuo responded and hung up the phone.
After Fang Qiu publicized the test result, people on the Internet waited for a long time, but there was no response from Siqi Pharmaceutical Company.
This time, everyone felt that Siqi Pharmaceutical Company had been convicted!
Even the paid Internet trolls, who had been mobilizing the public opinion in the comment area before, had completely disappeared.
Now all the comments were supporting Fang Qiu.
Almost all the netizens who were following this matter had all flooded into the official Weibo account of the Siqi Pharmaceutical Company, bombarding them with all kinds of abuse.
As everyone was busy scolding this company, Fang Qiu hadn’t finished yet.
Without receiving Siqi Pharmaceutical Company’s reply, Fang Qiu knew that they must be busy dealing with the public relations crisis.
However, Fang Qiu didn’t want to rush into anything at all.
It would be so much fun if he took his time to do it slowly.
In the dormitory, seeing that Fang Qiu took out another kind of medicine to take pictures, Zhu Benzheng immediately asked in surprise, “Bro, you have tested so many drugs. Are you going to post them all?”
Fang Qiu chuckled, “If I don’t want to post them, why should I do so many tests?”
Soon, Fang Qiu’s Weibo was updated again.
Just when everyone was excited about scolding Siqi Pharmaceutical Company, Fang Qiu’s Weibo instantly caught people’s attention.
Another new picture appeared in Fang Qiu’s new post.
In the picture, it was a drug produced by Letian Pharmaceutical Limited Liability Company.
“The heavy metal content of this medicine has exceeded the limit! Such drugs will cause great harm to human organs. They will not only have a great impact on the nerves’ development and function, reproduction, growth, renal function, cardiovascular function, and immune function but may also cause cancer!”
Seeing this new post, all the netizens were suddenly stunned.
“What the f*ck!”
“Fang Qiu is not just targeting at one company, is he?”
“Unbelievable. Letian Pharmaceutical Company is also a giant of the Western Medicine industry in Huaxia. Like Siqi Pharmaceutical Company, it is also a large listed company with a market value of hundreds of millions.”
“Siqi Pharmaceutical Industry has been silent for a long time, and now he wants to take down Letian Pharmaceutical Company?”
“Fang Qiu is incredible. Ordinary people dare not provoke the two major listed companies!”
“This is a big show, and it’s even more exciting. Anyway, I only support Fang Qiu!”
With the outbreak of public discussion on the Internet, the people of Letian Pharmaceutical Company who were laughing at Siqi company felt very happy because of Fang Qiu’s challenge to them. Now they were all stunned when they saw Fang Qiu’s new post.
Why did they suddenly become the second protagonist as they were just being the onlookers?
Obviously, all the employees of the Letian Pharmaceutical Industry didn’t expect that such a thing would turn out to be their own company’s crisis.
For a moment, no one knew what to do.
The leaders of the company, in the first place, quickly set up a WeChat group to gather all the employees and began to discuss.
However, after discussing for a long time, they didn’t manage to come up with a good solution.
After all, Siqi Pharmaceutical Company had already done what they could do. It was completely meaningless for them to do it again according to the way Siqi Pharmaceutical Company had done because it was meant to fail.
The only way was to ask for a qualitative test to determine whether there was any problem with their medicine!
