Adam Neumann, the former CEO of WeWork, has expressed his desire to repurchase the bankrupt shared office company, as revealed in a letter made public on Tuesday.
Neumann initiated discussions about a potential deal with WeWork in December, according to correspondence from his lawyer to the company.
The letter accused WeWork of resisting the idea despite its dire financial situation. WeWork responded, stating that it regularly receives offers and remains focused on acting in the best interests of the firm. WeWork faced significant challenges during the pandemic-induced shutdown of offices and never fully recovered.
The company’s financial difficulties escalated, leading to its filing for bankruptcy protection in November, as it sought to renegotiate leases with landlords amidst mounting financial pressure.
