WeWork this morning told bond investors that it has raised $3 billion in new funding from SoftBank, at the same terms as a $1 billion convertible preferred financing infusion from August (i.e., minimum conversion value of $42 billion).

Bottom line: This is from SoftBank corporate, not from SoftBank Vision Fund (which remains an existing investor). No word on earlier reports that Vision Fund is negotiating for a majority stake in WeWork, although we subsequently heard that WeWork had taken control off the table.

  • WeWork ended September with around $6.4 billion of pro forma cash ($5b at parent).
  • Q3 revenue was $482 million (vs. $241m from year-earlier), community-adjusted EBITDA was $121 million ($65m), and net loss was $497 million (some of which gets attributed to Asia partners).
  • Expectations are that WeWork will open more desks in Q4 than it did in all of 2017, and also more than in Q2 and Q3 combined.

Protests in Belarus turn deadly following sham election

Protesters and security forces are clashing across Belarus tonight, with at least one person dead, hundreds injured and thousands arrested.

Why it matters: Sunday’s rigged presidential elections have yielded political uncertainty unlike any seen in Aleksander Lukashenko’s 26-year tenure. After claiming an implausible 80% of the vote, Lukashenko is using every tool in the authoritarian arsenal to maintain his grip on power.

World coronavirus updates

Data: The Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins; Map: Axios Visuals

The number of COVID-19 cases surpassed 20 million worldwide on Monday evening, Johns Hopkins data shows.

The big picture: World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual press conference as the world approached the milestone that 750,000 deaths were set to be recorded this week. "Behind these statistics is a great deal of pain and suffering. Every life lost matters," he said. "But I want to be clear: there are green shoots of hope and... it's never too late to turn the outbreak around."
