    ROCHESTER, N.Y., November 12 -- 

     

    • Results demonstrate momentum upon emergence from Chapter 11.  
    • Third quarter net income (loss) improved from $(312) million in 2012 to $1.99 billion in 2013. Excluding reorganization items and discontinued operations, the net loss for the third quarter of 2013 was $155 million.  
    • Operational EBITDA excluding accounting adjustments improved in the third quarter by $53 million from the prior-year quarter and by $279 million for the first nine months versus the same period in 2012.  
    • Favorable product/price mix in both business segments – Digital Printing & Enterprise and Graphics, Entertainment & Commercial Films – contributed to an eight percentage point improvement in year-over-year gross profit for the quarter, confirming the company's strategy of focus on profitability.  
    • Strong liquidity; ended quarter with $839 million cash and debt of $679 million.  

    Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: KODK) today announced net income for the third quarter of $1.99 billion (combining net income for the period July 1, 2013, through August 31, 2013, of the "predecessor" company of $2.01 billion, and net loss for the period September 1, 2013, through September 30, 2013, of the "successor" company of $18 million). Excluding reorganization items and discontinued operations, the net loss for the third quarter of 2013 was $155 million.  

    Third-quarter Operational EBITDA (see footnote 4 for definition) was $30 million, excluding the recognition of $27 million in non-cash inventory and deferred revenue adjustments from fresh-start accounting. Effective September 1, 2013, Kodak adopted fresh-start accounting upon its emergence from bankruptcy. Therefore, the results presented below reflect the combined predecessor/successor financial results.

    As of September 30, the company's financial position reflected approximately $839 million of cash and cash equivalents and debt of $679 million (a reduction of $1.44 billion from December 31, 2012). During the quarter, selling, general & administrative expenses declined to $93 million from $148 million in the prior-year quarter.  

    "We are pleased with our progress on earnings this quarter, with Operational EBITDA on track with expectations. Further, our customers are telling us they are impressed with our technologies, and increasingly ready to adopt and apply our solutions to help grow their businesses," said Kodak Chief Executive Officer Antonio M. Perez. "Our strengths in imaging for business markets, including packaging, functional printing, graphic communications and professional services, position us well to move forward on our strategy with increasing momentum."  

    KODAK REPORTING STRUCTURE  

    Kodak offers high-quality, cost-effective products and services to the commercial imaging industry. The company's portfolio of products and services meets two distinct needs for its customers: transforming large printing markets with digital offset, digital print and hybrid solutions; and commercializing new solutions for high-growth markets that build on the company's developed technologies and proprietary intellectual property. Kodak operates the Commercial Imaging portfolio as two business segments: Graphics, Entertainment & Commercial Films (GECF) and Digital Printing & Enterprise (DP&E).  

    Graphics, Entertainment & Commercial Films (GECF): The GECF segment consists of the Graphics and Entertainment Imaging & Commercial Films groups, as well as Kodak's intellectual property and brand licensing activities.

    3Q13 vs. 3Q12 discussion The decrease in the GECF segment net sales for the third quarter was primarily due to lower demand for digital plates within Graphics, and lower demand for motion picture film within Entertainment Imaging & Commercial Films. Also contributing to the decline was unfavorable price/mix within Graphics due to industry pricing pressures. Partially offsetting these declines was favorable product price/mix within Entertainment Imaging & Commercial Films due to pricing actions impacting the current-year quarter.  

    The change in the GECF segment gross profit for the third quarter was primarily driven by the Entertainment Imaging & Commercial Films pricing actions, and strong manufacturing productivity and other cost improvements in Graphics. Partially offsetting these improvements was unfavorable product price/mix within Graphics due to industry pricing pressures. Inventory revaluation due to fresh-start accounting had a $12 million negative impact on segment gross profit in the quarter.  

    In the Graphics business, a large number of customers continued to convert to KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates, which provide cost savings and production efficiencies. SONORA Plates also enable printers to improve their sustainability profile by eliminating the use of processing chemistry.  

    Digital Printing & Enterprise (DP&E): The DP&E segment consists of four product/service groups,Digital Printing Solutions, Packaging and Functional Printing, Enterprise Services and Solutions, and Consumer Inkjet Systems.

    3Q13 vs. 3Q12 discussion The decrease in net sales for the DP&E segment for the third quarter was primarily attributable to volume declines within Consumer Inkjet Systems, driven by the discontinuance of printer sales, and lower sales of ink to the existing installed base of printers. Partially offsetting these declines were volume improvements within Digital Printingdriven by a larger number of placements of commercial inkjet components.  

    In the DP&E segment, customers around the world continued to invest in KODAK PROSPER Solutions, including the U.K.'s largest order to date for PROSPER S30 Imprinting Systems.  

    The increase in the DP&E segment gross profit for the third quarter was primarily due to favorable price/mix within Consumer Inkjet Systems due to a greater proportion of consumer ink sales, and within Digital Printing due to favorable mix due to higher component placements in the current-year period. Partially offsetting these improvements were increased cost of goods sold within Consumer Inkjet Systems due to the revaluation of inventory related to fresh-start accounting. Inventory revaluation due to fresh-start accounting had a $14 million negative impact on segment gross profit in the quarter.  

    Kodak's 10-Q Report with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission should be referenced for a comprehensive view of the company's financial performance for the third quarter of 2013.  

    KEY "FRESH-START" AND OTHER ACCOUNTING IMPACTS  

    In connection with the company's emergence from Chapter 11, Kodak applied the provisions of fresh-start accounting to its financial statements as of September 1, 2013. Upon the application of fresh-start accounting, Kodak allocated its reorganization value to its individual assets based on their estimated fair values. Reorganization value represents the fair value of the successor company's assets before considering liabilities. The excess reorganization value over the fair value of identified tangible and intangible assets is reported as goodwill. The major adjustments in value that have an associated impact in the successor statement of operations occurred as a result of an increase in the net book value of inventory to their estimated fair value, the revaluation of deferred revenues to the fair value of the company's related future performance obligations, and an increase in the net book value of intangible assets and property, plant and equipment reflected in increased depreciation and amortization.  

    A summary of the impacts of these adjustments on the company's Operational EBITDA follows.
