Kodak Takes Next Steps Toward Successful Emergence

Kodak outlined its next steps toward a successful emergence from Chapter 11 reorganization as a company focused on commercial, packaging and functional printing solutions and enterprise services. Accordingly, the company has decided to initiate sales processes for its market-leading Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging businesses.

Kodak believes that the sale of these assets, as well as continued cost-cutting initiatives, curtailment of its legacy liabilities, and the monetization of the company’s digital imaging patent portfolio, will be significant milestones toward completing the company’s reorganization and emergence from Chapter 11 during 2013.
