Before we go too far, we have no idea how French law works when it comes to bankruptcy or receiverships, but we figured we'd pass on this information anyway.
It looks like DxO Labs has gone into receivership for the purpose of reorganizing the company. DxO Labs deals with the software side of the DxO brand, as DxOMark deals with the testing of cameras and lenses. DxO Labs would likely be the ones dealing with the Nik Software plugins acquired from Google last year.
Below are a couple of “official” mentions about the receivership.
This was sent to a customer of DxO Labs:
In fact, the company has recently been placed under a regime of judicial administration, the time to reorganize.
Although we can not comment on this situation, we can nevertheless assure you that the company is absolutely not in liquidation and that we are confident that our customers will not be affected by this procedure.
