<p>WeWork Inc. made the announcement that it and several of its subsidiaries “intend to file recognition proceedings in Canada under Part IV of the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (the CCAA Recognition Proceedings) and have filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.”</p>
<p>It also said that WeWork’s facilities outside of the US and Canada are not included in this procedure.</p>
<p>The real estate company Embassy Group, located in Bengaluru, owns WeWork India, and it has always insisted that developments on a worldwide scale would not affect Indian business.</p>
<p>There are more than 50 WeWork locations in India.</p>
<p>WeWork Global owns 27% of the shares in WeWork India, while Embassy Group owns 73% of the company.</p>
<p>In June 2021, WeWork Global made a $100 million USD investment in WeWork India.</p>
<p>CEO Karan Virwani of WeWork India said in a statement released on November 7 that “WeWork India operates independently of WeWork Global, and our operations will not be affected in any way.” We are not involved in this process of strategic reorganization; it is an independent business. The global entity’s activities are unaffected by the Chapter 11 filing since it is still in control of its company and is running normally.</p>
<p>The procedure restructures WeWork Global’s debt and leases in the US and Canada. As stipulated in the operating agreement, we will maintain the ability to use the brand name at this time while continuing to provide regular services to our partners, landlords, and members.</p>
<p>Embassy Group, the company that owns the majority of WeWork India, is dedicated to making investments in the company’s future. Our primary goal is to provide our members in the area with outstanding and cutting-edge flexible workspace options. We have revolutionized the way people work in India and are the industry leaders in flexible workspace. WeWork India has turned a profit since 2021, and we’re dedicated to the industry’s and the company’s continued expansion and prosperity.</p>
<p>“Any worldwide development has no effect on how the firm operates. We will go on as normal with our operations and servicing of our members, landlords, and partners in India, Virwani said.</p>
<p>“The Embassy Group, which owns the majority interest and has the authority to manage the company’s operations in India, supports us. We have seen steady and long-term development in both our operations and finances. India’s work culture has been revolutionized by WeWork India, which is the market leader in flexible workspace. We are dedicated to the industry’s and the company’s strong development and success,” Virwani said.</p>
<p>WeWork Inc. said that it has started a thorough reorganization to improve its financial performance and capital structure in order to best position the business for long-term success.</p>
<p>“To significantly reduce the company’s current funded debt and expedite the restructuring process, the company has entered into a Restructuring Support Agreement (RSA) with holders representing approximately 92% of its secured notes,” the statement stated. “The company maintains the strong support of its key financial stakeholders.”</p>
<p>WeWork will further streamline its portfolio of commercial office leases at this time. As it anticipates that its worldwide operations will go on as normal, it will concentrate on providing best-in-class services to its members and maintaining business continuity.</p>
<p>To fulfill its objectives, WeWork Inc. declared bankruptcy.</p>
<p>“Now is the time for us to pull the future forward by aggressively addressing our legacy leases and dramatically improving our balance sheet,” said WeWork CEO David Tolley.</p>
<p>WeWork’s consolidated real estate portfolio, as of June 30, 2023, had 610 sites in 33 countries, supporting over 512,000 physical memberships and 715,000 workstations.</p>
<p>2010 saw the founding of WeWork.</p>
