When I was job hunting the couple of years I came across a piece stating some of their facilities had been sold off and reopened under new management.

I think that was with respect to assets like the modelshop, which became Kerner Optical while continuing to inhabit the main old ILM building from before they moved to the Presidio as an all-digital operation. Kerner Optical fell prey to money/mgmt issues, and has resurfaced in large part as 32Ten Studios. They did the model crash in ELYSIUM and I think some of LONE RANGER, though NEW DEAL was also involved on that.

 

As for ILM, it is absolutely Disney's now. Disney already shuttered the computer game end of Lucas and cancelled the games in development, but supposedly ILM is still being allowed to take outside work (in addition to being retained, one assumes, for STAR WARS - Chapter Lens Flare or whatever they call it.)
