Isaac Larian, CEO of MGA Entertainment, has tweeted about the apparent management takeover.
“#Savetoysrus: I just heard good news from Jean Charretteur (the GM of TRU Iberia) that he’s close to do a management take over and save TRU in France, Spain and Portugal. This is great news and I hope the hedge funds are reasonable with him so the same thing that happened to TRU in the USA doesn’t happen in Iberia.”
Isaac had previously led a crowdfunding campaign to save the bankrupt toy retailer, which was ultimately abandoned after multiple bids for the US and Puerto Rican stores were rejected.
