Stockholder rights law firm Bragar Egal & Squire, P.C. has revealed it is investigating WeWork on behalf of the company’s stockholders.
Last week, WeWork announced that it would need to correct financial statements over three quarters after mislabeling a portion of its shares as “permanent equity” when it was meant to be labeled as “temporary equity.”
In wake of this discovery, WeWork revealed there was a “material weakness” in its internal reporting that led to this error and that the financial report issued should not be relied on.
Now, the law firm wants to investigate whether WeWork has violated federal securities laws, or whether it has conducted other unlawful business practices.
Bragar Egal & Squire is asking those who have purchased or acquired WeWork shares, suffered a loss, or have information about these claims to get into contact with the firm.
