Something needs to be done. It does make no sense to be so busy and so in debt but there it is. Interestingly the website for DLP now looks very like the WDW one. Could be just unifying the look or could it be that WDC are planning a buyout who knows.

Debt restructure :

LONDON (Reuters) - Euro Disney said on Monday it had agreed a 1 billion euro funding deal backed by its largest shareholder, the Walt Disney Co , which includes a share sale and a debt restructuring, to allow it to invest in the business.
Euro Disney, based in an eastern suburb of Paris, is 40 percent owned by parent Walt Disney and 10 percent by the Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud.
The plan includes a rights issue of 420 million euros open to all shareholders and backed by Walt Disney. The company said the move would improve the cash position of Euro Disney by about 250 million euros.
In addition, about 600 million euros of the group's debt owed to Walt Disney will be converted into equity, while credit lines extended to Euro Disney by its parent will also be consolidated

The resort nearly went bankrupt in 1994, it was only when at the last minute, the banks capitulated and Prince Al-Waleed stepped in with a huge cash injection that the resort was rescued from closure. This would of course not happen today as TWDC is better financed that is was in 1994.

In regards to the debt restructure, in layman terms Disney are now giving another massive cash injection, reducing the debt amount owed to them in exchange for more shares of Euro SCA thus having more control. Then they will sell on some of the shares once the that has been done.
