yes they may not consider shutting like most businesses wont consider this, but if the business is faced with a huge tax bill, investors pulling out or bank forclosing on loans they sometime dont have a say in closing.
just because it states a company is worth $$$$$ does not mean ready cash.
google at the moment like amazon/starbucks etc. are all facing a major tax investigation in the UK as they have all been avoiding paying Uk taxes.
Correct yes, this is the likely reason to close down. When I wrote my post, i'm more referring to they're just coming to the conclusion to close without any reason, and this is what the threads sort of getting at, them closing without any reason, that isn't likely to happen as they're making money.
However, if like you said, they're faced with a tax bill, they could be likely to close.
