Global Entertainment Enterprise Falcon’s Beyond and Hong Kong-Based Cultural Commerce Giant K11 Group Plan to Launch New Entertainment Franchises and Attractions Across China
Falcon’s Beyond, a diversified global entertainment, consumer experience, and technology enterprise that accelerates intellectual property (IP) activations concurrently across physical and digital experiences, has announced its debut project as part of its joint venture with Raging Power Limited, an arm of K11 Group, the Hong Kong-based cultural commerce giant.
Through their joint venture, these two trailblazers in entertainment and retail, respectively, are expected to collaborate to develop and launch new entertainment franchises and location-based entertainment (LBE) attractions across China.
Last year, Falcon’s Beyond announced plans to become a publicly listed company through a definitive merger agreement with FAST Acquisition Corp. II (NYSE: FZT).
WeWork Declares Intent to Renegotiate Almost All Leases
After WeWork (NYSE:WE) warned last month that it might not be in business for much longer, its chief executive said on Wednesday that the co-working company was going to try to renegotiate nearly all of its leases and would probably pull out of underperforming locations.
The actions, detailed in a letter from David Tolley, who took over as chief executive after the sudden resignation of Sandeep Mathrani in May, are intended to reduce how much WeWork spends leasing office space.
WeWork went public in 2021 by merging with a blank check company, but its stock traded for pennies for months, prompting it to carry out a reverse stock split last week that was aimed at obtaining a share price above $1, a requirement for a New York Stock Exchange listing.
One Energy Announces Commercial Operations of First High-Voltage Megawatt Hub
One Energy Enterprises Inc., a vertically integrated industrial power solutions company, today announced that its first Megawatt Hub, in Findlay, Ohio has begun commercial operations.

On August 15, 2023, One Energy Enterprises Inc. and TortoiseEcofin Acquisition Corp. III (NYSE: TRTL) announced that they have entered into a definitive Business Combination Agreement.
