This to clarify some confusion regarding our still consumer and professional films. Our film manufacturing for all our business lines happens in the same factory. Therefore, we expect that whomever purchases the BUSINESS that sells our still consumer and professional films will create a supply agreement with Kodak. As we've also stated, we will be open to negotiating a licensing agreement.
What does this mean – this means the quality of the film you use today, whether it be PORTRA, EKTAR or any of our B&W films, will not change. We've always worked to ensure that we bring the best films to market.
Shouldn't that read

Couldn't resist. :p
That was indeed a Jackass remark. The films Kodak currently supplies are simply superb. Maybe a favorite for one person or another has been discontinued due to relative lack of demand or other
logistical issues; but the sheer quality and versatility of what they are still currently offering is unsurpassed.
Thanks Prof_Pixel it's unusual to hve such honesty from ex Kodak employees on this forum.
Geez, Ian. He just quoted their Facebook post.
That may be the case but others add layers of unfounded nothingness.

3. Kodak "expects" the buyer of the film business buyer to conclude a contract with Kodak under which Kodak will manufacture film for the buyer, who will market and distribute it.
Is my understanding correct? What happens if the buyer decides to find another film manufacturer?
Which is handy if you're deaf...
