Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
it's been carrying a lot of debt for a long time; a good decade or so.

However, after a major loss in 2011 led to a change of board, the company was back in profit by 2016/17, but instead of paying off its debt it chose to pay a large dividend to shareholders.

however, a long series of "one off disasters", volcanic eruption, hot weather, oil price rises, currency fluctuations, on-going tory government meant that eventaully they weren't able to service their debt. So the board gives themselves a big payoff and then declare bankruptcy.
