NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 4, 2019 / Levi & Korsinsky reminds investors that it has commenced an investigation of The We Company (f/k/a WeWork) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws and breaches of fiduciary duties.
WeWork, now "The We Company," recently announced a takeover deal with the Company's largest shareholder, SoftBank. The deal follows on the heels of the Company's unsuccessful initial public offering, and has been described as "an extraordinary bailout". Although the deal removes WeWork founder and CEO Adam Neumann from the board, Softbank will grant Mr. Neumann a $185 million consulting fee, the right to sell up to $970 million of his stock, and a $500 million credit line to him that replaces one from a set of banks.
Meanwhile, the company plans to lay off thousands of staff. Further, the Softbank deal also calls for SoftBank to buy WeWork's private shares from investors and some employees at $19.19 each, leaving employees who were compensated in stock options with those options underwater.
