    What else will they do then? Film is their only profitable product. I don't see why they would drop it.

    That's why they're in the ditch.

    Really? If that "other stuff" tanks, don't we all know the prognosis for their film products?

    They took the profits from film, sunk them into digital and printers where they lost it all.

    Simple math. Film = Profit, Digital = Loss.

    Or, put another way, a decade of steady collapse in demand for film products=no cushion. Why deny it?

    It's never going to be anything like the level of sales it used to be, but right now, it's all they have.

    There will be a demand for film for a long time to come, and if there's a demand, someone will fill it. Maybe, (probably), not Kodak, but Ilford and others seem to be doing pretty well, and I can't believe that the most popular B&W film in the history of photography will simply disappear without somebody buying the rights to keep on making it.
