I would think if it were true it would be all over the news. I can't find mention of it anywhere.

Tere is an extraordinary meeting being held on Monday at 7:00 am whch doesn't look good news, but I would not think it would be regarding closing the park; surely if this were the case we would have heard about it before now.

If the rumours are to be believed it's either that they Re cutting staff that's why the workers unions will be there. Or that the wdc will be buying edc out. No bankrupcy. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

From thelocal.fr:

Eurodisney to hold cash crunch crisis talks

AFP | 4 Oct 2014, 07:09

Disneyland Paris, which attracted one million less visitors last year, will hold a special meeting with the workers' council on Monday to discuss its ailing finances, informed sources said.


The meeting will begin before the Paris stock exchange opens, three sources confirmed separately to AFP on Friday.

The meeting will focus on the company's cash flow after the arrival of Eurodisney's new boss Tom Wolber in September.

The company, when contacted by AFP, refused comment but the sources said they had received formal communication regarding the meeting.

The theme park's revenues have slumped due to a huge drop in visitors.

Its net losses in the first six months this year increased by 16 percent to €103.6 million ($129 million) compared with the previous year.

The number of visitors between January and June also fell by 400,000 -- a six percent drop.

Although the group managed to cut its net loss for last year by 25 percent to €64.4 million, that was only achieved through a €1.3 billion refinancing from its US parent firm Walt Disney Company.

Can't see it being bankruptcy I have heard nothing as a shareholder. If that were to happen the shareholders would have to know.
They have invested in Newport Bay. They have announced investment in New York hotel, also hinted at what they are planning for the 25th anniversary. I think it could be re financing. If it were a take over again as a shareholder I would have to hear before a general announcement.

Does that mean the shares will take a nose dive in price? Is that why they are having the meeting before the French stock exchange opens?
I "read" that to mean that it will be a financial announcement and they know it will affect the share price.

Sounds to me that they are renegotiating share situations. Whether that means redundancies or what - we won't find out until the meeting has been held. Obviously their marketing isn't working - maybe time to call in the cavalry? As Peter H points out if there was the slightest chance of bankruptcy shareholders would be the first to know.
