WeWork to go public via SPAC

WeWork said Friday that it has agreed to be taken public by a SPAC sponsored by Vivek Ranadivé's Bow Capital Management.

Why it matters: This is a sunny ending to a very dark year for WeWork, which was already under pressure before the pandemic crushed co-working.


By the numbers: The deal would give WeWork an implied valuation of around $9 billion.

  • That's a dramatic discount to its $47 billion valuation in early 2019, but a slight improvement on where WeWork was valued in a SoftBank-led bailout round later that same year.
  • In between was WeWork's abandoned IPO process, and the ouster of founding CEO, Adam Neumann.

Timing: Word of a SPAC deal for WeWork first surfaced weeks ago, and was expected to be announced after SoftBank and Neumann reached a legal settlement related to a failed stock tender offer.

  • But sources say that there were some difficulties in obtaining PIPE financing for the deal, as that market has been tightening.
  • The PIPE is an $800 million outlay from firms like Insight Partners, Starwood Capital Group and Fidelity.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
