The Eastman Kodak
Eastman Kodak
Company (referred to simply as Kodak) is an American technology company that produces imaging products with its historic basis on photography. The company is headquartered in Rochester, New York, and is incorporated in New Jersey.[4] Kodak
Kodak
provides packaging, functional printing, graphic communications and professional services for businesses around the world. Its main business segments are Print Systems, Enterprise Inkjet Systems, Micro 3D Printing and Packaging, Software and Solutions, and Consumer and Film.[5][6][7] It is best known for photographic film products. Kodak
Kodak
was founded by George Eastman
George Eastman
and Henry A. Strong
Henry A. Strong
on September 4, 1888. During most of the 20th century, Kodak
Kodak
held a dominant position in photographic film. The company's ubiquity was such that its " Kodak
Kodak
moment" tagline entered the common lexicon to describe a personal event that was demanded to be recorded for posterity.[8] Kodak
Kodak
began to struggle financially in the late 1990s, as a result of the decline in sales of photographic film and its slowness in transitioning to digital photography.[9] As a part of a turnaround strategy, Kodak
Kodak
began to focus on digital photography and digital printing, and attempted to generate revenues through aggressive patent litigation.[10][11] In January 2012, Kodak
Kodak
filed for Chapter 11
Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection in the United States
United States
District Court for the Southern District of New York.[12][13][14] In February 2012, Kodak
Kodak
announced that it would stop making digital cameras, pocket video cameras and digital picture frames and focus on the corporate digital imaging market.[15] In August 2012, Kodak
Kodak
announced its intention to sell its photographic film, commercial scanners and kiosk operations, as a measure to emerge from bankruptcy, but not its motion picture film operations.[16] In January 2013, the Court approved financing for Kodak
Kodak
to emerge from bankruptcy by mid 2013.[17][18] Kodak
Kodak
sold many of its patents for approximately $525,000,000 to a group of companies (including Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, Samsung, Adobe Systems

History[edit]

The Kodak
Kodak
factory and main office in Rochester, circa 1910

From the company's founding by George Eastman
George Eastman
in 1888, Kodak
Kodak
followed the razor and blades strategy of selling inexpensive cameras and making large margins from consumables – film, chemicals and paper. As late as 1976, Kodak
Kodak
commanded 90% of film sales and 85% of camera sales in the U.S.[24] Rivalry with Fujifilm[edit] Japanese competitor Fujifilm
Fujifilm
entered the U.S. market (via Fuji Photo Film U.S.A.) with lower-priced film and supplies, but Kodak
Kodak
did not believe that American consumers would ever desert its brand.[25] Kodak passed on the opportunity to become the official film of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics; Fuji won these sponsorship rights, which gave it a permanent foothold in the marketplace. Fuji opened a film plant in the U.S., and its aggressive marketing and price cutting began taking market share from Kodak. Fuji went from a 10% share in the early 1990s to 17% in 1997. Fuji also made headway into the professional market with specialty transparency films such as Velvia
Velvia
and Provia, which competed successfully with Kodak's signature professional product, Kodachrome, but used the more economical and common E-6 processing machines which were standard in most processing labs, rather than the dedicated machines required by Kodachrome. Fuji's films soon also found a competitive edge in higher-speed negative films, with a tighter grain structure. In May 1995, Kodak
Kodak
filed a petition with the US Commerce Department under section 301 of the Commerce Act arguing that its poor performance in the Japanese market was a direct result of unfair practices adopted by Fuji. The complaint was lodged by the United States with the World Trade Organization.[26] On January 30, 1998, the WTO announced a "sweeping rejection of Kodak's complaints" about the film market in Japan. Kodak's financial results for the year ending December 1997 showed that company's revenues dropped from $15.97 billion in 1996 to $14.36 billion in 1997, a fall of more than 10%; its net earnings went from $1.29 billion to just $5 million for the same period. Kodak's market share declined from 80.1% to 74.7% in the United States, a one-year drop of five percentage points that had observers suggesting that Kodak
Kodak
was slow to react to changes and underestimated its rivals.[27][28][29][29] Although from the 1970s both Fuji and Kodak
Kodak
recognized the upcoming threat of digital photography, and although both sought diversification as a mitigation strategy, Fuji was more successful at diversification.[25] Shift to digital[edit]

The Kodak
Kodak
'K' logo was introduced in 1971. The version seen here – with the 'Kodak' name in a more modern typeface – was used from 1987 until the logo's discontinuation in 2006. A revised version was reintroduced in 2016.[30]

Although Kodak
Kodak
developed a digital camera in 1975, the first of its kind, the product was dropped for fear it would threaten Kodak's photographic film business.[31][32] In the 1990s, Kodak
Kodak
planned a decade-long journey to move to digital technology. CEO George M. C. Fisher reached out[clarification needed] to Microsoft
Microsoft
and other new consumer merchandisers. Apple's pioneering QuickTake
QuickTake
consumer digital cameras, introduced in 1994, had the Apple label but were produced by Kodak. The DC-20 and DC-25 launched in 1996. Overall, though, there was little implementation of the new digital strategy. Kodak's core business faced no pressure from competing technologies, and as Kodak executives could not fathom a world without traditional film there was little incentive to deviate from that course. Consumers gradually switched to the digital offering from companies such as Sony. In 2001 film sales dropped, which was attributed by Kodak
Kodak
to the financial shocks caused by the September 11 attacks. Executives hoped that Kodak might be able to slow the shift to digital through aggressive marketing.[33] Under Daniel Carp, Fisher's successor as CEO, Kodak
Kodak
made its move in the digital camera market, with its EasyShare family of digital cameras. Kodak
Kodak
spent tremendous resources studying customer behavior, finding out that women in particular loved taking digital photos but were frustrated in moving them to their computers. This key unmet consumer need became a major opportunity. Once Kodak
Kodak
got its product development machine started, it released a wide range of products which made it easy to share photos via PCs. One of their key innovations was a printer dock, where consumers could insert their cameras into this compact device, press a button, and watch their photos roll out. By 2005, Kodak
Kodak
ranked No. 1 in the U.S. in digital camera sales that surged 40% to $5.7 billion.[34] Despite the high growth, Kodak
Kodak
failed to anticipate how fast digital cameras became commodities, with low profit margins, as more companies entered the market in the mid-2000s.[35] In 2001 Kodak
Kodak
held the No. 2 spot in U.S. digital camera sales (behind Sony) but it lost $60 on every camera sold, while there was also a dispute between employees from its digital and film divisions.[36] The film business, where Kodak
Kodak
enjoyed high profit margins, fell 18% in 2005. The combination of these two factors resulted in disappointing profits overall.[33] Its digital cameras soon became undercut by Asian competitors that could produce their offerings more cheaply. Kodak
Kodak
had a 27% market-leading share in 1999, that dwindled to 15% by 2003.[36] In 2007 Kodak
Kodak
was No. 4 in U.S. digital camera sales with a 9.6% share, and by 2010 it held 7% in seventh place behind Canon, Sony, Nikon
Nikon
and others, according to research firm IDC.[37] Also an ever-smaller percentage of digital pictures were being taken on dedicated digital cameras, being gradually displaced in the late 2000s by cameras on cellphones, smartphones, and tablets. New strategy[edit]

The decline of camera film to digital greatly affected Kodak's business.

Kodak's main headquarters in Rochester, New York

Kodak
Kodak
then began a strategy shift: Previously Kodak
Kodak
had done everything in-house, but CEO Antonio Pérez shut down film factories and eliminated 27,000 jobs as it outsourced its manufacturing.[38] Pérez invested heavily in digital technologies and new services that capitalized on its technology innovation to boost profit margins.[33] He also spent hundreds of millions of dollars to build up a high-margin printer ink business to replace shriveling film sales. Kodak's ink strategy rejected the razor and blades business model used by the dominant market leader Hewlett-Packard
Hewlett-Packard
in that Kodak's printers were expensive but the ink was cheaper.[39] As of 2011, these new lines of inkjet printers were said to be on verge of turning a profit, although some analysts were skeptical as printouts had been replaced gradually by electronic copies on computers, tablets, and smartphones.[39] Home photograph printers, high-speed commercial inkjet presses, workflow software, and packaging were viewed as the company's new core businesses, with sales from those four businesses projected to double to nearly $2 billion in revenue in 2013 and account for 25% of all sales. However, while Kodak
Kodak
named home printers as a core business as late as August 2012, at the end of September declining sales forced Kodak
Kodak
to announce an exit from the consumer inkjet market.[40] Kodak
Kodak
has also turned to litigation in order to generate revenue.[10][11] In 2010, it received $838 million from patent licensing that included a settlement with LG.[27] In 2011, despite the turnaround progress, Kodak
Kodak
rapidly used up its cash reserves, stoking fears of bankruptcy; it had $957 million in cash in June 2011, down from $1.6 billion in January 2001.[41] In 2011, Kodak
Kodak
reportedly explored selling off or licensing its vast portfolio of patents in order to stave off bankruptcy.[41] By January 2012, analysts suggested that the company could enter bankruptcy followed by an auction of its patents, as it was reported to be in talks with Citigroup
Citigroup
to provide debtor-in-possession financing.[13][42] This was confirmed on January 19, 2012, when the company filed for Chapter 11
Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection and obtained a $950 million, 18-month credit facility from Citigroup
Citigroup
to enable it to continue operations.[12][13][14] Under the terms of its bankruptcy protection, Kodak
Kodak
had a deadline of February 15, 2013 to produce a reorganization plan.[43] In April 2013, Kodak
Kodak
showed its first Micro Four Thirds
Micro Four Thirds
camera, to be manufactured by JK Imaging.[44][45] On September 3, 2013, Kodak
Kodak
announced that it emerged from bankruptcy as a technology company focused on imaging for business.[21] Its main business segments are Digital Printing & Enterprise and Graphics, Entertainment & Commercial Films.[5] On March 12, 2014, Kodak
Kodak
announced that Jeffrey J. Clarke had been named as chief executive officer and a member of its board of directors.[46][47][48] On January 1, 2015, Kodak
Kodak
announced a new five business division structure; Print Systems, Enterprise Inkjet Systems, Micro 3D Printing and Packaging, Software and Solutions, and Consumer and Film.[7][49] Timeline[edit] 1880–98[edit]

leased the third floor of a building on State Street in Rochester N.Y. and began the commercial manufacture of dry plates. January 1, 1881: Eastman and businessman Henry A. Strong
Henry A. Strong
formed a partnership called the Eastman Dry Plate Company.[50] Eastman resigned his position at the Rochester Savings Bank
Rochester Savings Bank
in order to work full-time at the Eastman Dry Plate Company. 1884: The Eastman-Strong partnership was dissolved and the Eastman Dry Plate and Film Company formed with 14 shareowners. The Eastman Dry Plate Company was responsible for the first cameras suitable for non expert use. 1885: George Eastman
George Eastman
bought David Houston's patents for roll film and developed them further. These were the basis for the invention of motion picture film, as used by early filmmakers and Thomas Edison. September 4, 1888: Eastman registered the trademark Kodak.[51] 1888: The first model of the Kodak
Kodak
camera appeared. It took round pictures 6.4 cm (2.5 in) in diameter, was of the fixed focus type, and carried a roll of film enough for 100 exposures. Its invention practically marked the advent of amateur photography, as before that time both apparatus and processes were too burdensome to classify photography as recreation. The roll film used in the first model of the Kodak
Kodak
camera had a paper base but was soon superseded by a film with a cellulose base, a practical transparent flexible film.[52] The first films had to be loaded into the camera and unloaded in the dark room, but the film cartridge system with its protecting strip of opaque paper made it possible to load and unload the camera in ordinary light. The Kodak
Kodak
Developing Machine (1900) and its simplified successor, the Kodak
Kodak
Film Tank, provided the means for daylight development of film, making the dark room unnecessary for any of the operations of amateur photography. The earlier types of the Kodak
Kodak
cameras were of the box form and of fixed focus, and as various sizes were added, devices for focusing the lenses were incorporated.[52] 1889: The Eastman Company was formed.[1] 1891: George Eastman
George Eastman
began to produce a second line of cameras, the Ordinary range.[53] 1892: It was renamed the Eastman Kodak
Eastman Kodak
Company in 1892. Eastman Kodak Company of New York was organized.[1] He coined the advertising slogan, "You Press the Button, We Do the Rest."[54] The Kodak
Kodak
company thereby attained its name from the first simple roll film cameras produced by Eastman Dry Plate Company, known as the "Kodak" in its product line. Early 1890s: The first folding Kodak
Kodak
cameras were introduced. These were equipped with folding bellows that permitted much greater compactness. 1895: The first pocket Kodak
Kodak
camera, the $5 Pocket Kodak, was introduced.[55] It was of the box form type, slipping easily into an ordinary coat pocket, and producing negatives 1½ x 2 inches. 1897: The first folding pocket Kodak
Kodak
camera was introduced,[52] and was mentioned in the novel Dracula, published the same year. 1898: George Eastman
George Eastman
purchased the patent for Velox photographic paper from Leo Baekeland
Leo Baekeland
for $1,000,000. After this time, Velox paper was then sold by Eastman Kodak.

Eastman Kodak
Company of New Jersey, was formed under the laws of that state. Eventually, the business in Jamestown was moved in its entirety to Rochester, and the plants in Jamestown were demolished. By 1920: An “Autographic Feature” provided a means for recording data on the margin of the negative at the time of exposure. This feature was supplied on all Kodak
Kodak
cameras with the exception of a box camera designed for making panoramic pictures[52] and was discontinued in 1932. 1920: Tennessee Eastman was founded as a wholly owned subsidiary. The company's primary purpose was the manufacture of chemicals, such as acetyls, needed for Kodak's film photography products. 1930: Eastman Kodak
Eastman Kodak
Company was added to the Dow Jones Industrial Average index on July 18, 1930. The company remained listed as one of the DJIA companies for the next 74 years, ending in 2004.[56]

personnel transferred to Flextronics. January 10, 2007: Kodak
Kodak
agreed to sell Kodak
Kodak
Health Group to Onex Corporation for $2.35 billion in cash, and up to $200 million in additional future payments if Onex achieved specified returns on the acquisition.[75] The sale was completed May 1.[76] Kodak
Kodak
used part of the proceeds to fully repay its approximately $1.15 billion of secured term debt. Around 8,100 employees transferred to Onex, and Kodak Health Group was renamed Carestream Health. Kodak
Kodak
Health Group had revenue of $2.54 billion for the 12 months to September 30, 2006. April 19, 2007: Kodak

Kodak
announced a cross-licensing agreement with Chi Mei Optoelectronics and its affiliate Chi Mei EL (CMEL), enabling CMEL to use Kodak
Kodak
technology for active matrix OLED modules in a variety of small to medium size display applications.[78] June 14, 2007: Kodak
Kodak
announced a two to fourfold increase in sensitivity to light (from one to two stops) compared to current sensor designs. This design was a departure from the classic "Bayer filter" by adding panchromatic or “clear” pixels to the RGB elements on the sensor array. Since these pixels are sensitive to all wavelengths of visible light, they collect a significantly higher proportion of the light striking the sensor. In combination with advanced Kodak
Kodak
software algorithms optimized for these new patterns, photographers benefited from an increase in photographic speed (improving performance in low light), faster shutter speeds (reducing motion blur for moving subjects), and smaller pixels (higher resolutions in a given optical format) while retaining performance. The technology was credited to Kodak
Kodak
scientists John Compton and John Hamilton.[79] September 4, 2007: Kodak

House. Controversies[edit] Better Business Bureau[edit] On March 26, 2007, the Council of Better Business Bureaus (CBBB) announced that Eastman Kodak
Eastman Kodak
was resigning its national membership in the wake of expulsion proceedings initiated by the CBBB board of directors.[142] In 2006, Kodak
Kodak
notified the BBB of Upstate New York that it would no longer accept or respond to consumer complaints submitted by them. In prior years, Kodak
Kodak
responded by offering consumers an adjustment or an explanation of the company’s position. The BBB file contains consumer complaints of problems with repairs of Kodak
Kodak
digital cameras, as well as difficulty communicating with Kodak customer service. Among other complaints, consumers say that their cameras broke and they were charged for repairs when the failure was not the result of any damage or abuse. Some say their cameras failed again after being repaired. Kodak
Kodak
said its customer service and customer privacy teams concluded that 99% of all complaints forwarded by the BBB already were handled directly with the customer. Brian O’Connor, Kodak
Kodak
chief privacy officer, said the company was surprised by the news release distributed by the Better Business Bureau:

It is inaccurate in the facts presented as well as those the BBB chose to omit. Ironically, we ultimately decided to resign our membership because we were extremely unhappy with the customer service we received from the local office of the BBB. After years of unproductive discussions with the local office regarding their Web site postings about Kodak, which in our view were consistently inaccurate, we came to the conclusion that their process added no value to our own. Our commitment to our customers is unwavering. That will not change. What has changed is that, for us, the BBB's customer complaint process has become redundant, given the multiple and immediate ways that customers have to address their concerns directly with Kodak.[143]

Patent litigation[edit] In 2010, Apple filed a patent-infringement claim against Kodak. On May 12, 2011, Judge Robert Rogers rejected Apple's claims that two of its digital photography patents were being violated by Kodak.[144] On July 1, 2011, the U.S. International Trade Commission
International Trade Commission
partially reversed a January decision by an administrative law judge stating that neither Apple nor Research in Motion had infringed upon Kodak's patents. The ITC remanded the matter for further proceedings before the ALJ.[145] See also[edit]
