2018年10月10日,/HRoot.com/)根据外媒最新报道,软银(SoftBank)可能很快会持有WeWork 50%的股份,WeWork是一家总部位于纽约的共享办公企业。
据报道,软银的投资额可能在150亿至200亿美元之间,这笔投资将来自其920亿美元规模的软银愿景基金(Vision Fund),软银愿景基金是由软银集团创始人、总裁及首席执行官孙正义(Masayoshi Son)领导的超大型风险投资基金。
 
软银已经拥有WeWork约20%的股份。软银曾在2017年8月向WeWork投资了44亿美元,其中14亿美元用于帮助WeWork在中国、日本和东南亚进行扩张。
2018年8月,WeWork又通过可转换债券从软银筹集了10亿美元。与此同时,WeWork向几家媒体披露了财务数据——其营收在2018年上半年翻了一番,达到7.638亿美元,同时亏损也增加到7.23亿美元。
 
WeWork由Adam Neumann和Miguel McKelvey于2010年创建,迄今已通过债务和股权融资筹集了近50亿美元。该公司在2017年的估值为200亿美元,不过2018年早些时候的报告估计,如果加上软银的额外投资,其估值将增至350亿至400亿美元之间。400亿美元的估值将使其成为美国市值仅次于优步(Uber)的第二大由风投支持的公司。
 
WeWork目前在23个国家的287个地区拥有超过268,000名会员。
SoftBank is considering taking a majority stake in WeWork
(Oct.10, 2018, /techcrunch.com/) SoftBank may soon own up to 50 percent of WeWork, a well-funded provider of co-working spaces headquartered in New York, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal.
 
SoftBank is reportedly weighing an investment between $15 billion and $20 billion, which would come from its $92 billion Vision Fund, a super-sized venture fund led by Japanese entrepreneur and investor Masayoshi Son.
 
SoftBank already owns some 20 percent of WeWork. The firm invested $4.4 billion in the company in August 2017, $1.4 billion of which was set aside to help WeWork expand in China, Japan and Southeast Asia.
 
This August, WeWork raised another $1 billion from SoftBank in convertible debt. At the same time, WeWork disclosed financials to a handful of media outlets, sharing that its revenue had doubled to $763.8 million in the first half of 2018 as losses increased to $723 million.
 
WeWork, founded in 2010 by Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey, has raised nearly $5 billion in a combination of debt and equity funding to date. It was valued at $20 billion in 2017, though reports earlier this summer estimated its valuation would fall somewhere between $35 billion and $40 billion with additional capital from SoftBank. A $40 billion valuation would make it the second most valuable VC-backed company in the U.S. behind only Uber.
 
WeWork has more than 268,000 members across 287 locations in 23 countries.
