If this will be reality, does that mean Athletic will lose its membership owned structure?

This concerns me too:

"In 1990, the Spanish Government ruled that all clubs apart from Madrid, Barcelona, Athletic Bilbao and Osasuna were obliged to become limited companies, "Sociedades Anonimas Deportivas" [SAD], and could not be member-owned. The exemption gave the four clubs in question significant advantages in terms of corporation and property tax. It also granted the four a not-for-profit status under Spanish law."

Were there clubs that were forced to lose their members and become limited companies? How could that kind of decision been made?

I can't remember if any club was forced

What I remember is that many clubs where happy becoming companies, because of the money they where getting that way
