❈ Adam Neumann, WeWork's Former Chief, Sues SoftBank

IT Security Nachrichten yro.slashdot.org

Adam Neumann, a co-founder of WeWork, sued SoftBank on Monday, accusing it of breaching a contract by withdrawing an offer to buy up to $3 billion in WeWork stock from Mr. Neumann and other shareholders. From a report: SoftBank, a Japanese conglomerate that has invested in many fast-growing but unprofitable start-ups, included the stock offer in a bailout that saved WeWork from financial collapse last year. Mr. Neumann's lawsuit, filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery, contends that SoftBank and one of its investment funds "reneged on their promise to pay for the benefits they had already received" when they withdrew the offer last month. SoftBank, which gained effective control of WeWork in the rescue, previously said it walked away from the stock-purchase offer because certain provisions of the deal had not been met. But Mr. Neumann's lawsuit asserts that SoftBank "was secretly taking actions to undermine" the deal. Robert Townsend, SoftBank's chief legal officer, said in a statement that the company "will vigorously defend itself against these meritless claims." SoftBank invested billions of dollars in WeWork when Mr. Neumann, a charismatic entrepreneur who won the backing of prominent investors and banks, was its chief executive. Mr. Neumann, facing criticism of his leadership, stepped down as chief executive last year as WeWork unsuccessfully tried to sell stock in an initial public offering. Under the takeover agreement, Mr. Neumann stood to receive cash payments totaling $185 million and would have sold nearly $1 billion of his WeWork shares to SoftBank. SoftBank also gave him a $425 million loan to repay credit lines with banks that had been secured by WeWork stock.
