Kodak Reports Third-Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Nov 09, 2021 at 4:10 PM EST

ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 9, 2021-- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: KODK) today reported financial results for the third quarter 2021, including consolidated revenues of $287 million and continued growth in key product areas.

Third-quarter 2021 highlights include:

  • Consolidated revenues of $287 million
  • GAAP net income of $8 million
  • The Company ended the quarter with a cash balance of $380 million

“I’m pleased with our continued improvement in the third quarter despite challenges posed by supply chain issues, labor shortages and inflationary pressures,” said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s Executive Chairman and CEO. “Our core print business has achieved increased market share in environmentally-friendly process-free plates and we are well positioned to continue growing that important segment. Looking forward, we’ll continue to execute our go-to-market strategy focused on driving profitable revenue and growth.”

For the quarter ended September 30, 2021, revenues were $287 million, an improvement of $35 million compared to the prior-year quarter. Kodak ended the third quarter with a cash balance of $380 million, an increase of $184 million from December 31, 2020. GAAP net income was $8 million for the third quarter, compared to a net loss of $445 million in the third quarter 2020. The prior year quarter included a charge of $416 million to reflect the increased value of the derivative liability embedded in the convertible notes immediately prior to conversion. Operational EBITDA for the quarter was $6 million compared to negative $1 million in the prior-year quarter.

“During the third quarter we continued to see strong growth in our key product areas, including SONORA Process Free Plates volume and PROSPER annuities which were up 35 and 17 percent respectively compared to the prior-year quarter,” said David Bullwinkle, Kodak’s CFO. “Kodak used $15 million in cash for the quarter, primarily driven by ongoing global cost increases which we are taking actions to address. We will continue to execute on our long-term plan — focusing on our core businesses and investing in future growth.”

APPENDICES

A. NON-GAAP MEASURES

In this third quarter 2021 financial results news release, reference is made to the following non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Operational EBITDA; and
  • Revenues and Operational EBITDA on a constant currency basis.

Kodak believes that these non-GAAP measures represent important internal measures of performance. Accordingly, where they are provided, it is to give investors the same financial data management uses with the belief that this information will assist the investment community in properly assessing the underlying performance of Kodak, its financial condition, results of operations and cash flow.

Kodak’s segment measure of profit and loss is an adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Operational EBITDA”). Operational EBITDA represents the income from continuing operations excluding the provision for income taxes; loss on early extinguishment of debt, non-service cost components of pension and OPEB income; depreciation and amortization expense; restructuring costs and other; stock-based compensation expense; consulting and other costs; idle costs; other operating expense (income), net; interest expense; and other (income) charges, net.

The change in revenues and Operational EBITDA on a constant currency basis, as presented in this financial results news release, is calculated by using average foreign exchange rates for the three months ended September 30, 2020, rather than the actual average exchange rates in effect for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

The following table reconciles the most directly comparable GAAP measure of Net Income (Loss) to Operational EBITDA and Operational EBITDA on a constant currency basis for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively:

(4)

No income has been recognized in 2021. The income was reported in Other operating expense (income), net in the Consolidated Statement of Operations. Other operating expense (income), net is typically excluded from the segment measure. However, the income from the transition services agreement was included in the segment measure.

(5)
