Check article 8 of regulation 261/2004:
(c) re-routing, under comparable transport conditions, to their final destination at a later date at the passenger's convenience, subject to availability of seats.

3. When, in the case where a town, city or region is served by several airports, an operating air carrier offers a passenger a flight to an airport alternative to that for which the booking was made, the operating air carrier shall bear the cost of transferring the passenger from that alternative airport either to that for which the booking was made, or to another close-by destination agreed with the passenger.
If DY doesn't offer these things, then you claim back the expenses you had as a result of this absence of the offer, but you may have to sue them to get your money.

This is another issue and for that reason I wouldn't book anything with them before it is known if their share issue goes through or not.
