Kodak Reports Full-Year 2018 Financial Results

ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 1, 2019--Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: KODK) today reported financial results for the full year 2018, including a net loss of $16 million on revenues of $1.3 billion and continued growth in key product areas.

Highlights include:

  • GAAP net loss of $16 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, compared to GAAP net earnings of $94 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.
  • Revenues for 2018 of $1.3 billion compared to revenues for 2017 of $1.4 billion.
  • Operational EBITDA for the year of $1 million compared to Operational EBITDA in 2017 of $10 million.
  • Key product lines achieved strong year-over-year growth for the full year 2018:
    • Volume for KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates grew by 19 percent.
    • Annuity revenues for the KODAK PROSPER Press platform grew by 8 percent.
  • The company ended the year with a cash balance of $246 million.
  • The company entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Flexographic Packaging Division to Montagu Private Equity LLP, a leading private equity firm. FPD is presented within discontinued operations.

“I look forward to working with my team to help Kodak become cash-flow positive and build long-term value for shareholders,” said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s newly appointed Executive Chairman. “Our priorities will be to increase operational efficiency and focus on core competencies to achieve our growth objectives.”

For the year ended December 31, 2018, revenues decreased by approximately $61 million compared with the same period in 2017. Kodak ended the year with a cash balance of $246 million, down from the December 31, 2017 cash balance of $343 million.

“We generated cash in the fourth quarter of 2018 and delivered strong performance in our key growth areas of SONORA Process Free Plates and in PROSPER inkjet annuities,” said David Bullwinkle, Kodak’s CFO. “We expect to close soon on the sale of our Flexographic Packaging Division and will use the proceeds to significantly reduce our term debt and strengthen our balance sheet. In addition, we plan to secure new financing for our remaining term debt, which will allow us to focus on our operations and return to consistent cash generation.”

APPENDICES

A. NON-GAAP MEASURES

In this full year 2018 financial results news release, reference is made to the following non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Operational EBITDA; and
  • Revenues and Operational EBITDA on a constant currency basis.

Kodak believes that these non-GAAP measures represent important internal measures of performance. Accordingly, where they are provided, it is to give investors the same financial data management uses with the belief that this information will assist the investment community in properly assessing the underlying performance of Kodak, its financial condition, results of operations and cash flow.

Kodak’s segment measure of profit and loss is an adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Operational EBITDA”). The change in revenues and Operational EBITDA on a constant currency basis, as presented in this financial results news release, is calculated by using average foreign exchange rates for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018.

The following table reconciles the most directly comparable GAAP measure of Net (Loss) Earnings to Operational EBITDA and Operational EBITDA on a constant currency basis for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively
