共享办公空间WeWork获软银集团30亿美元投资

近日,共享办公空间WeWork宣布获得软银集团30亿美元权证投资。而就在不久前,WeWork还曾获得过软银集团10亿美元的可转换债券投资。

由消息称,本次投资过后,WeWork的市值已经达到420亿美元。

此外,软银集团下属的愿景基金也曾对该公司投资44亿美元。

报告指出,WeWork的增长主要得益于其与服务提供商签订大宗交易以确保其用户批发价格的能力。该公司还通过为包括微软在内的一些最大的企业客户开发企业解决方案,扩大了其服务范围。据报道,WeWork的这一领域现在占其收入的29%。

同时,除了新产品开发外,WeWork还在进行自己的投资。最近,该公司完成了对办公室管理解决方案创企Teem公司的收购。

其实,市场上另外几家共享办公空间创企最近也都获得了资金。比如总部设在中国的MyDreamPlus和Ucommune,两者都在8月份获得了资金。

On-demand workspace provider WeWork secured a $3 billion investment from SoftBank Corp. in the form of a warrant, reports said on Tuesday (Nov. 13), just months after SoftBank invested $1 billion in the firm via a convertible note.

SoftBank’s investment allows the company to purchase shares before September 2019 at $110 each or higher. Reports said the deal values WeWork at $42 billion.

The warrant follows another investment in the firm from SoftBank‘s investment unit, SoftBank Vision Fund, to the tune of $4.4 billion last year.

Growth in WeWork has been driven by its ability to land large deals with service providers to secure wholesale prices for its users, reports noted. The company has also broadened its service offerings through the development of enterprise solutions for some of its largest corporate clients, including Microsoft. According to reports, this area of WeWork’s operations now makes up 29 percent of its revenue.

SoftBank Corp.’s investment came after Bloomberg reported last month that the Japanese company was rumored to be planning such a deal in pursuit of a majority stake in the company.

Meanwhile, in addition to new product development, WeWork has been making its own investments. Most recently, the firm reached a deal to acquire Teem, which sells office management solutions.

Other workspace sharing startups have secured funding as of late, including MyDreamPlus and Ucommune, both based in China, which each received funding in August.
