  • The company ended the year with a cash balance of $246 million.
  • The company entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Flexographic Packaging Division to Montagu Private Equity LLP, a leading private equity firm. FPD is presented within discontinued operations.

“I look forward to working with my team to help Kodak become cash-flow positive and build long-term value for shareholders,” said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s newly appointed Executive Chairman.  “Our priorities will be to increase operational efficiency and focus on core competencies to achieve our growth objectives.”

For the year ended December 31, 2018, revenues decreased by approximately $61 million compared with the same period in 2017.  Kodak ended the year with a cash balance of $246 million, down from the December 31, 2017 cash balance of $343 million.
