“In many ways, 2019 was a transformative year for the creation of One Kodak,” said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s Executive Chairman. “We consolidated our divisional structure, strengthened our financial position and returned our focus to our core print and advanced materials and chemicals businesses. For 2020, we’ll continue to become more customer-centric, launch groundbreaking print products and, most important, focus on generating cash.”

For the year ended December 31, 2019, revenues decreased by approximately $78 million compared with the same period in 2018. Kodak ended the year with a cash balance of $233 million, flat when compared to the December 31, 2018 cash balance.

“We generated positive cash flow in the fourth quarter of 2019 and had breakeven cash flow for the full year 2019,” said David Bullwinkle, Kodak’s CFO. “We also delivered strong performance in our key growth areas of SONORA Process Free Plates and PROSPER inkjet annuities in 2019. Looking forward, we will continue to execute on opportunities to operate more efficiently and grow profitable revenue to achieve our goal of generating cash on a consistent basis.”

Effective January 2020, Kodak changed its organizational structure. Prepress Solutions, formerly part of the Print Systems segment, will operate as a separate segment named the Traditional Printing segment. Electrophotographic Printing Solutions, formerly part of the Print Systems segment, will be combined with the Enterprise Inkjet Systems segment and Kodak Software segment to form the Digital Print segment. The Brand, Imaging and Film segment, except for the licensing of the Kodak brand to third parties, will be combined with the Advanced Materials and 3D Printing segment to form the Advanced Materials and Chemicals segment. The licensing of the Kodak brand to third parties will operate as a separate segment named the Brand segment. The Eastman Business Park segment will no longer be a reportable segment.
