Two recent articles, Kodak’s Long Fade to Black and Kodak Is a Walking Corpse of a Company and That Makes Us Sad, highlight the difficulty the once dominant American film-maker is facing. Kodak is currently losing $70 million/month, in spite of having some noteworthy technology.
I have a Kodak inkjet printer at home, and Creative Memories uses a Kodak digital press to produce StoryBooks and other products. For complete details, the Wikipedia entry on Kodak includes information on its past history and current products.
My speculation is that Kodak will not disappear, but will instead use Chapter 11 restructuring to improve its corporate balance sheet. What do you think? Will Kodak be relegated to the pages of history or does it have a future?
