    ILFORD IMAGING USA INC
    OPEN FOR BUSINESS
    AS ILFORD RESTRUCTURES BUSINESS WORLDWIDE
    Paramus, NJ (August 25, 2004)-- The accounting firm Grant Thornton announced Monday the
    appointment of partners Mark Byers, Malcolm Shierson and Les Ross as joint administrators of our UK
    parent company Ilford Imaging Limited and joint administrative receivers of our UK affiliate Ilford
    Imaging UK Limited.
    The announcement pertains to those two UK companies alone. The Swiss business, including the
    ILFORD production facility in Marly, is solvent and continues to conduct business as usual.
    Similarly, Ilford Imaging USA Inc continues to do business as normal.
    "The US entity is operating in a business-as-usual fashion, and is continuing to accept and deliver
    on its orders as we evaluate how the changes at the UK companies might affect us", said Ward
    Phillips, President of ILFORD Imaging USA Inc.
    "We are taking every action and precaution to maintain ongoing operations with our customers. At
    the same time, behind the scenes, we will be working with our related companies in the ILFORD
    group to improve its performance and strengthen the outlook for the future", Phillips further stated.
    The ILFORD group was founded in 1879 in the UK, and more recently it has developed into the
    worldÂ’s leading supplier of dyes for inkjet photo printers and is the second largest manufacturer of
    inkjet photo paper.
