SoftBank plans to pump $5bn into WeWork
Japanese investor will not take a majority stake
WeWork's parent company is expected to choose soon between rival $5 billion funding offers from SoftBank Group and JPMorgan Chase.
TOKYO -- SoftBank Group will offer around $5 billion in financing to the parent of office-sharing unicorn WeWork as the loss-making company scrambles for cash, Nikkei learned Wednesday.
SoftBank will officially propose the plan to the We Company soon. The additional investment will come directly from the Japanese group rather than its roughly $100 billion Vision Fund.
Nikkei Asian Review, now known as Nikkei Asia, will be the voice of the Asian Century.
