    Holy cats, Perez will be the last one standing. Never good when the CFO quits.

    Given that a bankrupcy is, by definition, a financial emergency, I would think not.

    I feel very sad for the employees at Kodak that are getting their jobs cut.

    The interesting aspect of it is that 1,000 employees together make 330,000,000 dollars. That's an average of $ 330,000 per year in compensation and benefits. No wonder their costs are too high.

    There are probably associated cuts in rent and office/plant expenses and supplies as well.

    Can that figure be right? Not a zero too much or wrongly positioned comma?

    If it is correct then yes. Just close the whole thing. Sell off the tools and patents and be done with it. Guess how many high-skilled people (I deliberately don't refer to them as "workers") one of those salaries would get in an emerging economy country? Heck, since moving back to Sweden, I hardly make more than a tenth of that per year!

    No tears for Kodak by me from now on...

    It is my understanding that the $330,000,000 figure applies to the total of 3,700 employees being cut in 2012 - that comes out to about $89,000 per employee being cut.

    Maybe there are no just more Financials to Officer.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
