No matter which way you look at it, its a shed load of money.

But not to Disney. Presumably they could easily (financially) pay off DLP's debts, meaning profit would be profit, rather than turning into debt because they are servicing such a big loan.

I guess the point is, as a few people have mentioned, the French government would like that to happen as it would effectively be a take over.

While we're on the subject of it being a French owned company, how much is actually owned by the French? Around 40% is owned by Disney, 10% owned by the Prince, a very, very small percentage owned by me(!), that takes it over 50% foreign owned.

Also, can anyone work out what percentage of Euro Disney is owned by someone who owns 100 shares?

not exactly, there's this silly thing where there are 2 definitions of a billion, guess which one the Americans use. ;)
So a Billion in this is case is €1,000,000,000 most of the English speaking world uses it like that.
Not the €1,000,000,000,000 it would be if you literally translated it into many other languages. ;D

Then it's a worldwide cultural mistake  ;D

It is not a French owned company, it is a company incorporated under French law.
enjoy yourself, it\'s later than you think!


APPAED, the Association of Small Euro Disney Shareholders announced yesterday that they have decided to vote AGAINST the TWDC Recapitalization proposal  at the AGM on the 13 Jan 2015.

They are advising their members to vote No to resolutions 1, 2, 3, 11, 12, 13 and 14. And to either vote No or Abstain on resolutions 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 15.

This decision by APPEAD may not prevent the recapitalization  project being approved as the association does not have the majority of the votes. But it is a way for the association and their members to express dissatisfaction with the proposal.
