Adam Neumann, co-founder and former CEO of WeWork, has made a conditional offer to buy the company for between $500 million and $600 million. The office and coworking space rental platform declared bankruptcy in November 2023 with $18,656 million in debt and $15,063 million in assets. WeWork faced difficulties after Neumann’s management and leadership style caused him to lose the confidence of Softbank, its main investor. Despite these challenges, WeWork remains focused on emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the second quarter as a financially sound and profitable company.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Neumann formed a “coalition of half a dozen financial partners” two weeks ago to present a potential offer. Namely, the fund Third Point and the investment company Baupost Group were not included as possible allies in this potential purchase offer.

Founded in 2010 by Neumann and Miguel McKelvey, WeWork was at one point valued at around $47 billion. Neumann’s recent takeover bid indicates a potential move to retake control of the company he previously ran.
