Nov 13 (Reuters) - U.S. shared office space provider WeWork Cos has secured an additional $3 billion in funding from Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp, according to an investor presentation seen by Reuters.
The latest funding was in the form of a warrant, under which SoftBank will pay WeWork $1.5 billion on Jan. 15 and the remaining on April 15.
WeWork in July said it had raised $500 million from investors, including Temasek Holdings and SoftBank Group Corp.
SoftBank was in discussions to buy a majority stake in WeWork, a source told Reuters in October. (Reporting by Vibhuti Sharma in Bengaluru and Angela Moon; Editing by Arun Koyyur)
