Bernard,

Your assumptions are not correct. Almost the opposite of what you are saying is happening.

The acquisition stage of Kodak is over for the time being. The state of business is organizing current acquisitions - a huge task.

I suspect that the state of their business is to sell-off or close- down divisions at the end of every fiscal quarter until nothing is left but a devalued brand name.


Kodak's consumer digital cameras have been among the best on the market (in terms of value and image quality), but they will soon find out that other companies can buy the same cameras from the same contract manufacturers and sell them cheaper.

Rollei content: the new Rollei is following the same strategy (albeit on a smaller scale). Hopefully, the spinoff (Franke & Heidecke) will outlive its parent.
