Latest SPAC News: WeWork in discussions for fresh equity raise, and Mark Ein-backed SPACs scrap IPO plans

WeWork Explores Fresh Equity Raise Amid Stock Slump

The talks were kick-started by investor interest and the capital raise may be structured as a PIPE. New York-based WeWork is looking at bringing in more than $200 million.

The withdrawal by Capitol Investment Corp. VI and Capitol Investment Corp. VII comes at a time when volatility in the U.S. market has spiked, triggered by geopolitical tensions, rate hike concerns and uneven earnings.
