WeWork’s India And China Sectors Could Be In Trouble

The We Company’s postponed IPO is having a significant impact on portions of the company, but it is still unknown whether it will cause the domestic IPO market to slow. Click To Tweet

For example, WeWork’s India franchise was in talks for a $100 million in funding from local lender ICICI Bank, but that deal has now fallen apart. WeWork India is now seeking $200 billion from other investors.

WeWork India is not the only subsidiary that could take a hit from We’s IPO failure. WeWork China is also at risk, having raised $1 billion through two rounds.

While the India and China sectors of WeWork have not raised as much money as the We Company, it can be expected that both will be in the top-decile of all funded companies.
