    European aerospace company EADS is reportedly about to announce restructuring that includes thousands of job cuts and the sale of its Paris headquarters.

    Bosses – including Chief Executive Tom Enders – have been meeting with managers and workers’ union representatives to reveal details of the planned cutbacks, which come as European governments spend less on military hardware.
