The financials of EK are shocking. I didn't know Kodak was struggling financially. EK has been spending way more than they make. Their assets are decreasing and the total balance of liabilities was greater than the total assets at the end of 09. I was honestly amazed when I reviewed their financials. When will they cut their losses and call it quits. It's sad but all good things must come to an end. Someone with money will buy it and carry on it's legacy. Hopefully

Well done Krystal, this is the sort of thinking I want to stiumulate


I would think some large corporation would want to purchase EK if only for its long standing trademark. and brand recognition. With the way the balance is looking it won't be long before they are either bankrupt or sold.

Tammy Salinas

What could cause Kodak's assets to decrease so much? Are they selling their assets in order to get money back in? Are they that desperate? Unless the reason for their liabilities to be so much higher than their assets in 09 is due to an investment into a new product that could possibly get them out of this rut, then I could see where they are going with this. If not, Im afraid the widely brand name of KODAK will no longer be as reputable as it once was. Honestly, I have seen their digital cameras and have come to a conclusion that Canon has actually surpassed them in effects. Could this be the company to possibly buy them out?

Dennis Elam


Yes that same thought occurred to me, this is one great trademark, just need to get rid of the debt, the digital machines in WAG will surely pay off at some point.
