British office space provider IWG plans $3.68 billion U.S. float: report

(Reuters) - British office space provider IWG Plc <IWG.L> is planning to list its U.S. arm in New York for three billion pounds ($3.68 billion), Sky News reported on Saturday.

IWG's Chief Executive Officer Mark Dixon is holding talks with investment banks on creating an independent unit, which is expected to be a publicly traded rival to WeWork, Sky News said.

Regus's owner had put forth a condition to bankers that it will only hire them if they have no involvement in WeWork's initial public offering (IPO), the report added.
