The article focuses on the change of ownership of Thomas Cook Ltd. in Great Britain. It states that the ownership of the company changed after 44% of its shares were placed on the London Stock Exchange and a consortium of banks sold 43.9% of the stocks of its parent company Arcandor AG. It adds that the scheme was driven by the failure of Arcandor to manage the stake place under bankruptcy protection.
