WeWork’s Adam Neumann Makes Conditional Purchase Offer for the Company He Left in 2019

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

Adam Neumann, the co-founder of WeWork, has made a conditional purchase offer of between 500 and 600 million dollars for the company he left in 2019. He has assembled a group of financial partners to present the offer, despite previous suggestions that Third Point fund and Baupost Group would be his allies in regaining control of the company.

WeWork was once valued at around $47 billion but filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November 2023 with a debt of 18,656 million dollars and assets worth 15,063 million dollars. The pandemic in 2020 further exacerbated the company’s challenges due to its focus on renting office space. Despite these setbacks, WeWork is focused on emerging from bankruptcy protection in the second quarter as a financially sound and profitable company.
