(Reuters) - SoftBank Group Corp <9984.T> is holding talks with WeWork to boost a $1.5 billion investment it had earlier agreed to invest in the U.S. office-sharing startup, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.
SoftBank is planning to pledge an extra $1 billion or even more to alter warrant agreement terms it struck this year with WeWork, the report said, citing people briefed on the matter.
SoftBank would invest at least $2.5 billion, but would lower the price per share at which it acquires WeWork share, the report added.
WeWork and SoftBank did not immediately respond to request for comment.
