WeWork India FY23

Despite the bankruptcy filing of its global parent, WeWork India has reported a 77% reduction in losses and a 67.58% increase in revenue in FY23.

The impressive financial growth is attributed to strategic management and market adaptability, with revenue soaring to Rs 1,314.5 crore and losses narrowing down to Rs 146.8 crore.

In the face of its global parent's financial struggles, WeWork India has maintained operational independence, ensuring its business operations in India remain unaffected. 

Revenue sources 


The primary source of revenue for WeWork India came from leasing office spaces, accounting for 72% of the total revenue. This segment alone witnessed a 47.6% increase, contributing significantly to the overall revenue growth. The company's ability to cater to the steady demand for its services has been a key factor in its financial success.

WeWork India's ability to meet its financial obligations and continue its growth trajectory is supported by continued funding from its shareholders, particularly the Embassy Group, which owns about 73% of the Indian entity.

With the necessary resources at its disposal, WeWork India is poised for sustained growth and market leadership despite the competitive landscape of India's co-working space sector.


WeWork India's operational efficiency is evident from its controlled expenditure, which only saw a 6% increase despite the significant revenue growth. The company's strategic approach to managing depreciation, interest expenses, and other overheads has been instrumental in reducing its losses and improving its bottom line.

Competing with other players 

The company operates approximately 53 co-working spaces across eight cities, commanding an 8 million-square feet coverage area. It faces competition from other co-working space providers like Awfis but remains a leader in the segment because of its premium positioning and strategic partnerships with other companies.

However, the challenge ahead lies in controlling rental escalations and maintaining its competitive edge in a market that is becoming increasingly crowded.
