BEIJING, Nov 7 (Reuters) – WeWork China will not participate in the strategic reorganisation of WeWork (WE.N) in the United States and Canada, it said on Tuesday.
WeWork China is not a branch or unit of WeWork (WE.N), it said in a statement on WeChat, adding the company has independent operations and management capabilities.
WeWork, the SoftBank Group (9984.T)-backed startup, sought U.S. bankruptcy protection on Monday, after its bets on companies using more of its office-sharing space soured.
“Any operating conditions of WeWork in other regions around the world will not have any impact on WeWork China,” it added.
