Kodak Disputes Bankruptcy Rumors

By Christopher Lee October 4, 2011 | Posted in

kodak bankruptcyIt wouldn’t be the first big name company to have sought bankruptcy protection this year. Borders and Blockbuster both found themselves unable to recover from a serious debt burden earlier this year, and both resolved their financial troubles with the help of  Chapter 11.

Kodak, however, is saying they are not planning to seek bankruptcy protection, despite many rumors to the contrary. The rumors began shortly after it was reported that Kodak executives met privately with a law firm. Kodak released a statement saying, “It is not unusual for a company in transformation to explore all options and to engage a variety of outside advisers, including financial and legal advisers.”

A Snapshot Of The Future

Regardless of their debt resolution plan one thing is for certain, Kodak is suffering financially and their market shares have begun to plummet. Kodak, a publically traded company, lost more than half its value in a single day, last Friday. Investors have been off loading Kodak shares as quick as possible over the past few days.

Losing more than $1.8 billion since 2007, Kodak now owes more than $160 million to creditors. The 131 year old business has been struggling to compete with changing technology for years. The large shift towards digital cameras and memory cards, along with fierce foreign competition, has undermined sales for the past few years.

As Kodak fights to stay alive in a dying market, it reassures remaining shareholders that a plan is in the works to regain profitability and calms fears by saying,” Kodak is committed to meeting all of its obligations and has no intention of filing for bankruptcy.”

Everybody I have encountered and meet with at Lee Law Firm has been positive and encouraging. And that is exactly what I needed because nobody looks forward to going through bankruptcy. The staff was honest about my situation and put my mind at ease about the process, and for the first time in months I was able to relax and focus…

on getting out of my financial situation with hope of starting over. I would recommend Lee Law firm of friends and family because I feel like they have my best interest at heart.
