Liam Tells Ivy about the Hostile Take Over
Ivy tells Liam that she thinks she walked in on something the other night with Steffy. She’s right Liam says she did and it’s a game changer. Rick is boss unless someone takes it from him. Ivy is intrigued. Liam admits his plan needs Steffy to work and he’s not so sure about that now. They have been discussing a hostile takeover of Forrester Creations Liam tells Ivy.
They go through the math of the shares. Liam is hoping to bring in some portion of 20% to get to 50%. Of course this is between you and me Liam says. Ivy is stunned. She doesn’t’ like it. Its Uncle Eric’s company he can’t just take it out from under it. And there’s Bill. He doesn’t’ trust Bill to run Forrester Creations. Bill is about the bottom line and Forrester is about family. Liam assures her the company stays in Forrester hands – Steffy will run it. He wonders if that will help her throw her support behind his plan.
Ivy doesn’t like going against her family but Steffy is a Forrester and a talented designer. Having two professionals at the helm would be nice Ivy says.
