    From what I am getting, the packaging, distribution, and marketing of Kodak still film is what's for sale. EK will still coat the film and slit it into rolls or sheets under contract from (the hypothetical) Eastman Photo. Eastman Photo will then roll the film onto spools, put them in boxes, and ship the boxes to wholesalers and retailers. That way, EK will make its money all at once, whereas Eastman Photo will be making income in smaller increments. It is for this reason that I think Kodak's sale of their film division is strictly cash flow related; Even if they don't sell it for that much, Perez & Co. can show investors what massive cash flow they have, even if some of it is an intermittent flow.

    It seems to me that what Kodak is trying to do is get out of any part of the business that directly interfaces with the retail market - at least with respect to film.

    Sort of the reverse of what they did with their photo chemistry.

    I hope someone has effectively archived their technical publications.

    Can we get the title of this thread changed? I can't seem to find an official statement in this thread or on the internet to verify the title of this thread to be true.

    Maybe I'll start a thread:"Its Official, Kodak is keeping its film business."

    What is "official" information today might be officially obsolete news tomorrow. There's no guarantee
    the rumor roller-coaster is over yet. These things can change like the weather.

    What about Kodak paper products? According to previous announcements, paper and professional and consumer still film were all part of the Personal Imaging business.

    I wish Kodak would come clean and make a clear, non-conflicting statement about exactly what it is keeping and what it is selling.

    Or to put it another way ...

    They will.... in time. I trust that they will. I'll bet a lot of options are still on the table.
