Former WeWork CEO Adam Neumann seeks to repurchase the coworking company for 500 million euros.

Adam Neumann, the former CEO and co-founder of WeWork, has reportedly submitted a conditional purchase offer of between 500 and 600 million dollars for the company. According to The Wall Street Journal, Neumann has assembled a group of financial partners to present the potential offer. It is noted that these financial partners do not include Third Point fund or the Baupost Group, which were previously suggested as possible allies for Neumann in regaining control of WeWork.

Despite facing setbacks such as losing the trust of Softbank, its main investor, and failing an IPO in 2019, WeWork is focused on emerging from bankruptcy protection in the second quarter as a financially sound and profitable company. The pandemic in 2020 further exacerbated the company’s challenges due to its focus on renting office space.

WeWork was once valued at around $47 billion before filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November 2023 with a debt of 18,656 million dollars and assets worth 15,063 million dollars. However, despite these challenges, WeWork continues to receive interest from third parties regularly and is working towards a successful financial recovery.
