On August 9, 2022, Michel Combes notified WeWork Inc. (the “Company”) of his resignation from the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), effective immediately. The resignation is not the result of any disagreement with the Company with respect to any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.
