WeWork is weighing major changes to its governance to boost its appeal to investors ahead of its planned initial public offering, according to a Bloomberg report .
At this point, exactly what the company is looking to change or address in its governance is unclear, the report found.
So far, WeWork has added a woman to its board and CEO Adam Neumann has returned $5.9 million he was granted for use of the word "we." But concerns still linger.The WeWork prospectus showed the company paid Neumann rent and lent him money , and that he has voting control over major decisions.
The lead financial advisers on the IPO are JPMorgan Chase & Co and Goldman Sachs. Both have raised concerns about going forward with the IPO after the company lowered its valuation and could list as low as $15 billion.
There's also the matter of WeWork's massive operating losses. The company has $3 billion in losses over the last three years. In the first half of this year, it lost $690 million.
The stakes are high for WeWork and its backers, including SoftBank, the company's largest investor , which added to its stake in the company in January valuing the company at $47 billion. Just this week SoftBank asked the company to delay its IPO process .
WeWork is counting on at least $3 billion from the IPO to take advantage of an additional $6 billion credit line, Bloomberg reported. To access the line, it must IPO by December 31, according to Bloomberg.
