Why WeWork’s IPO struggles have tanked its valuation

  • WeWork CEO Adam Neumann is stepping down and will be replaced by two current execs, Sebastian Gunningham and Artie Minson, as permanent co-CEOs.
  • The company delayed its hotly anticipated IPO after investors questioned its valuation, business model, and Neumann’s role in the company.
  • The co-working company was valued as high as $47 billion, though many don’t agree with that number.
  • WeWork has tried to justify its valuation by saying it’s a tech company, but most investors think it’s a real estate company. At its core, WeWork is a landlord.
