Breaking News: Is The Kodak Film Business Being Sold?
According to a new article published by PetaPixel: "Big news in the world of film photography: the Kodak film business is reportedly up for sale.
Kodak Alaris is said to be looking to sell part or all of its business, and its film business, in particular, could be sold to another company within the next month or two.
If it’s unable to find a buyer willing to pay a fair price, Kodak Alaris (and therefore Kodak films) will fall into the hands of the Pension Protection Fund.
Jourlait tells Inside Imaging that Kodak’s film business has been up for sale since January 2018 and that there has already been interest from multiple potential buyers. Negotiations with one specific buyer are already in “advanced stages.”
With the recent news about Tetenal, it has been a very busy last couple of weeks for the film industry! I will follow up when more information is available.
