WeWork Japanのソフトバンクへの事業承継について

 

日頃より格別のご指導を賜り、厚くお礼申し上げます。2月1日に発表させて頂いた「ソフトバンクがWeWork Japanの事業を承継」について、メンバーの皆様に大変なご心配をおかけ致しましたこと深くお詫び申し上げます。

まず、事業承継中及び4月中に予定している事業承継完了後も、メンバーの皆様はこれまでと変わらず国内外のWeWork拠点をご利用頂けます。WeWorkブランドでのご提供、サービスレベルについても変更はございません。また、皆様とのメンバーシップ契約についても、現在の契約内容のまま新会社に承継され、特別な手続きは必要ないことをご承知ください。

弊社では、2023年11月のWeWork Inc.による米連邦破産法第11条の申請以降、メンバーの皆様に安心して長期間ご利用頂ける環境をご用意するべく、様々な可能性について検討を重ねて参りました。

ソフトバンクの全面的な支援のもと新設される100%子会社「WWJ株式会社」で安定した運営を行うこと、同時に承継プロセスを円滑かつ確実に進めるために民事再生を申立てることが、安心して長期にわたってご利用頂ける環境を速やかに整えることができ、新しい拠点、サービスやテクノロジーなど、皆様により良いサービスを提供できるとの結論に至りました。

繰り返しになりますが、皆様に多大なるご心配をお掛けしたことをお詫び申し上げます。今後ともWeWorkと変わらぬお付き合いのほど、よろしくお願いいたします。

 


 

SoftBank Corp. to Become WeWork Japan’s Parent Company

 

Dear Highly Valued WeWork Japan Members and Partners,

Thank you for your continuous support of WeWork Japan. By now you have likely seen or heard of our press release regarding Softbank Corp. taking 100% ownership of WeWork Japan.

During the transition process expected to be completed in April, all members will continue to have access to WeWork locations both in Japan and globally, just as you have now. All services will continue to be provided under the WeWork brand, and the service level will remain the same. Furthermore, your membership agreements will be transferred to the new company as is, without any additional burden to you.

Since WeWork Inc.’s Chapter 11 filing in November 2023, we have been carefully considering several possibilities to ensure a stable environment for our all our members to confidently continue to use our services without worry of continuity issues or any other distractions.

Under the full support of SoftBank, the newly established 100% subsidiary, “WWJ Corp.,” will continue operations without any changes and with a more stable ownership structure. Filing for civil rehabilitation (“minjisaisei”) allows us to smoothly and definitively transition to a more secure and stable financial position while enabling us to improve our services, increase new locations, and add new technologies to enhance our community experience.

We sincerely apologize for any concerns we may have caused you. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to maintaining our relationship with you in the future.

With gratitude for your continued support,

Johnny Yoo
Executive Officer, WeWork Japan GK
