WeWork董事会准备与软银展开较量

2020-3-23 13:22

 

据路透社报道,WeWork董事会特别委员会正准备与软银集团(SoftBank Group)展开较量,称这家日本企业集团应该完成向这家办公共享公司的员工和股东承诺的收购要约。


该委员会在周日的一份声明中表示:“软银不仅有义务按照主交易协议的详细内容来完成收购要约,而且其不试图完成交易的借口也是不恰当和不诚实的。”


作为回应,软银表示,如果对WeWork有任何实质性的责任,它仍有能力放弃收购要约,并补充称,收购要约不会影响软银对WeWork的承诺,也不会影响WeWork的财务实力。


软银发言人表示:“软银已通知股东,在完成收购要约之前,所有商定的交易条件都必须得到满足。”


“到目前为止,还没有。”


路透社上周二报道称,软银正考虑退出以30亿美元收购WeWork额外股份的计划,因为它认为WeWork没有满足交易的条件。

 

WeWork board’s special committee is preparing for a fight against SoftBank Group, saying the Japanese conglomerate should complete its tender offer promised to the office sharing company’s employees and shareholders, Reuters reports.

“Not only is SoftBank obligated to consummate the tender offer as detailed by the Master Transaction Agreement, but its excuses for not trying to close are inappropriate and dishonest”, the committee was quoted as saying in a statement on Sunday.

In response, SoftBank said it maintains the ability to walk away from the tender offer if there is any material liability to WeWork, adding the offer has no impact on SoftBank’s commitment to WeWork or on the financial strength of the business.

“SoftBank has informed stockholders that all of the agreed upon closing conditions must be satisfied before the tender offer can be completed,” a SoftBank spokeswoman said.

“As of now, they are not.”

Reuters reported last Tuesday that SoftBank was considering pulling out of the US$3 billion bid to buy additional shares in WeWork, because it feels the office-space sharing firm has not met the conditions for the deal.
