Adam Neumann has sold $700 million in stock. As a founder, I've sold shares into a secondary offering to get some liquidity and diversify holdings. Ok, I get it. But 3/4 of a billion dollars? This is 700 million red flags that spell words on the field of a football field at halftime: "Get me the hell out of this stock, but YOU should buy some."
— Gross margins are a pretty decent proxy for how good or bad a business is. And this is a sh**ty business:
— Adam has several family members working in the business who make "less than $200,000."
— The ownership structure chart is similar to a hieroglyphic on a cave wall about the survival of the species: Harvest the crops when the sun is high in the horizon, do not venture over the hills, hostile tribes live there, and … don't buy this stock. The corporate governance structure of WeWTF makes Chinese firms look American, pre-big tech.
There is a growing risk the “liar loans” of this cycle are in the private equity space.Click HERE to subscribe to Fuller Treacy Money Back to top
