Investors are still struggling with the company’s business model, as it’s prospectus revealed it has yet to be profitable, continues to burn through cash and had major financial losses in the first half of this year.

Despite having doubled its memberships annually to 528 locations and 527,000 memberships, it continues to lose money each year. More than that, the prospectus indicated no signs that the company would be profitable in the near future.

Concerns over WeWork’s financials could have been squashed had the company explained how their revenues could outweigh their expenses in the future, yet all they claim is to want to “elevate the world’s consciousness.”

The S-1 filing reveals that each new WeWork workspace requires an initial investment before it becomes profitable, but it is difficult to calculate what it costs to build out and operate each WeWork location.

Overall, it is unclear what to expect from WeWork’s future of profitability, but based on the prospectus it seems as if a trend has already been established.
