Paul, even though analog MP is in a decline, the analog photo division at EK is not in a financial mess. In fact, they are still more or less, supporting the rest of EK for the time being. If they are spun off as a result of the bankruptcy then they would probably be on a par with Ilford or better.

As for Ilford coating color film or apper? They do not have the trained staff nor do they have any suitable equipment at their plant at this time (AFAIK). I do know that Simon Galley has been emphatic about the fact that Ilford will NOT do color.
