Can We Still Expect To See A WeWork IPO This Year?

After WeWork’s biggest backer SoftBank dropped its proposed $16 billion investment down to $2 billion, the company’s $47 billion valuation also dropped. The major coworking firm is expected to file for an IPO this year, which is now currently valued at $20 billion.

Despite this, WeWork’s CEO Adam Neumann claims that the reduced funding will not have an affect on their IPO after it gained about $2.5 billion in revenue, but the date of the company going public is still a mystery.

Such losses may continue to widen as the firm focuses on growth, which could be a concern for many investors.
