 November 2001: The final days
 Enron struggles to stay afloat and scrambles for a merger

19 - 26 November:
Enron could only stay afloat if its credit rating were to remain high.

On 19 November Enron sought to negotiate better conditions for $690m of debt that were due for immediate repayment, but the shares were still falling.

The shares fell through the psychological $7 mark, their lowest level for a decade. They continued to fall even after Enron won a reprieve on the immediate debt.

Within days the shares plummeted to just $4.01.
