GM of Toys R Us Iberia to save Spanish, French and Portuguese operations?

Published on: 26th June 2018

Isaac Larian, CEO of MGA Entertainment, has tweeted about the apparent management takeover. 

The Tweet reads:

“#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.
