At best  I'd call the original post idle speculation or wishful thinking 
based on  hearsay - at least third hand.

Perhaps we should wait for Ilford to put  out an .....Offical News Release. 

Maybe this will be enough for you:
?These insolvency appointments have arisen in order to restructure the  
Company?s traditional photography business and allow it to focus on its core 
profitable inkjet digital business based in Switzerland, which is unaffected 
these insolvencies. Currently we are analysing the traditional photographic  
business with a view to assessing its potential for sale as a going concern. 
business has key strengths through its technology, its reputation both with  
the general public, professional photographers and its major corporate  
?Additionally the digital inkjet business will be marketed: it has  very 
significant market share, technological strengths and potential for further  
profitable growth.?
This is from the latest Ilford news release and clearly states that the ink  
jet business will be sold, whilst the 'traditional' business is being 
 to see if it is marketable. I am afraid it looks like the end to me!
