Billion-亿万

Billion-亿万


场景介绍:阿克斯资本收购了好时光将近5%股权,并掌握了该公司大部分隐名合伙人信息之后,掌门人Alex带着助手Mike与好时光几名重要董事举行了非正式会谈。由于股权收购比例到达举牌线,Alex直言不讳道出好时光公司经营存在问题并弹劾现任总裁经营不善,要求增加董事席位及相应话语权。

带着问题看剪辑,思考以下五个问题:

1、找到“向...摊牌”对应的一句短语;
2、找到“加仓、加持股份”对应的一句短语;
3、找到与“市场份额不断流失”对应的一句短语;
4、找到“股东大会”对应的一个词组;
5、翻译:“I’m not here as a declaration of war,  but as a beacon of hope.”
