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.
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...
