At the general manager’s office.
A knocking on the door interrupted Zhai Jun while he was drinking water. In his heart, he felt a little annoyed. Which fool was coming to disturb him so early in the morning?
Gao Fang led Duan Shu Tong and Zhou Ling in. Zhai Jun changed his expression instantly. He got up from his seat to greet them. With a smile, he said: “Is something the matter, Director Duan?”
His tone was as gentle and soft as he could make it.
Duan Shu Tong secretly found it funny, but compared to senior executives who think that they’re the big boss, having Zhai Jun, this unambitious and obsequious man, as general manager was a good thing for him.
“Manager Zhai, the new project that I previously submitted has been successfully developed. This is the research report. Take a look.” Duan Shu Tong paused, and then said emphatically, “If you think it is appropriate, please allocate funds for production, promotion, and sales as soon as possible.”
Zhai Jun took the report and made brief eye contact with Gao Fang.
Gao Fang left the office and closed the door.
“Director Duan, you don’t have to go through these formalities,” Zhai Jun laughed. “If you want to engage in production, it is but a word. I will assign tasks to various departments right away.”
Duan Shu Tong’s brows pinched together. Although it was a good thing to have no obstacles, Zhai Jun’s attitude towards work really annoyed him.
Zhai Jun had just picked up the phone when he thought of something and asked, “How much is the Duan clan investing?”
Duan Shu Tong: “…How is this related to the Duan family?”
Zhai Jun: ?
The Duan clan’s crown prince wants to make a new product, so wouldn’t the Duan family step up to support it?
“What about the Spring and Autumn Hall?” Duan Shu Tong asked.
Zhai Jun smiled bitterly: “The investments we made still have not profited.”
Duan Shu Tong frowned slightly. He had thought wrong. He thought that Zhai Jun was so calm because the Spring and Autumn Hall was capable of investing in new products.
It’s been a long time since he had to worry about funding, so he didn’t think about it until he came up against the problem.
Given the current situation of the Spring and Autumn Hall, it really was impossible for it to bear the production of new products.

Seeing that there was something off about Duan Shu Tong’s expression, Zhai Jun vaguely sensed that he had said the wrong thing. He gave Duan Shu Tong a few furtive glances and then said hesitantly, “Most of the company’s funds are invested in the production of Lab No. 1. How about this? I’ll cut off their production first, and then moved their part of the funds over here…”
“No need.” Duan Shu Tong refused flatly. “Put the production plan for the new product on hold for the time being. I will go back to the R&D department first.”
Even if it was indeed necessary to cut off the production of some previous products, he still couldn’t do it right now.
To take back the investment that has already been given was disrespectful to Lab No. 1.
He had to think of another way.
After returning to the laboratory, he checked his account for the first time, a total of more than one hundred thousand. It was not enough.
It’s hard to get a hero for a penny.
He was really feeling the truth of that right now.
Duan Shu Tong was secretly distressed, and Zhou Ling felt uncomfortable when she saw this. The new product clearly showed such good results, but it could not be released due to lack of funds.
In the same way, Zhai Jun felt rather apprehensive. He originally thought that Young Master Duan would not be able to develop any products at all, but contrary to his expectations, Young Master Duan handed over a research and development report within a month.
He has been a general manager for so many years, so it wasn’t like he didn’t understand anything. If the data on the report was true, then this new product was really amazing.

But now the product could not be manufactured due to financial problems. He was afraid that Duan Shu Tong would be unsatisfied with him, so he stayed in the office all day, sighing while trying to think of a way.
As his secretary, Gao Fang understood his worries inside and out.
Because of her existence, many people in the company knew that Young Master Duan had developed a new product. Unfortunately, because the company was short on funds, he could not produce it. Now he was sulking in the laboratory, and Manager Zhai was also in a bad mood.
He Run didn’t mix with others much, but it didn’t prevent people around him from telling him.
When he heard about this, his first reaction was to ask: “He really researched and developed it?”
The researcher nodded.

“Yeah. The research report has been handed in, but I heard that the report was too fake. How could such a product really exist?”
Another female researcher retorted: “It may not be fake. Did you see Zhou Ling’s face? I heard that she used the new product and recovered so much in just a week.”
There were no secrets in the company. Not to mention, Zhou Ling revealed her face with the intent of promoting the new product. As long as someone asked, she would tell the truth.
The researchers got together and chatted non-stop. He Run was silent for a while. Then he walked out of the R&D department and went to the general manager’s office.

Rest assured, Young Master Li will be taken care of later~
