WeWork Withholds Interest Payments On Debt As Rumors Swirl Of Bankruptcy Filing

WeWork (NYSE: WE) is withholding further interest payments on some of its outstanding notes as it looks to improve its balance sheet.

The company indicated this morning that it will be withholding payments of $6.4 million on notes due 2025, which is due on November 1. The failure to make a payment will begin a 30-day grace period for the company.

The delay is follows an arrangement with creditors for a delay on October 2 for $95 million worth of interest payments on some of its notes due 2027. Yesterday the company entered into a seven day forbearance agreement related to these notes, following the grace period for these notes coming to an end.

WeWork last traded at $2.34 on the NYSE.
