WeWork Continues Strong Momentum with Sixteen New Assumptions

New York, NY – May 6, 2024 – Today, WeWork, the leading global flexible space provider, announced the assumption of sixteen leases. These assumptions, which are subject to court approval, showcase WeWork’s progress in creating a more sustainable real estate portfolio to better invest in its offerings for the future.

Under revised agreements that are mutually-beneficial to WeWork and its landlords, WeWork is assuming the following locations:

Under the existing agreement terms, the Company is also assuming its lease at 501 Boylston Street.

WeWork has charted a strong path forward for its future operations through its strategic restructuring. Last week, the Company announced a $450 million investment, which is subject to court approval, to support operations through the conclusion of its Chapter 11 cases and provide post-emergence capital. WeWork has also determined a path forward at over 95% of its global, wholly-owned lease portfolio and completed its lease rationalization process in eight U.S. markets.
