ROCHESTER, N.Y., September 30, 2020 – Eastman Kodak Company (the “Company”) announced today its election to mandatorily convert the remaining $5 million outstanding principal amount (the “Converted Notes”) of the Company’s 5.00% Secured Convertible Notes due 2021 (the “Notes”) into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $.01 per share (“Common Stock”).  Of the $100 million original principal amount of the Notes, $95 million was converted at the option of the holders as of July 29, 2020.  The conversion of the Converted Notes will be effective on September 30, 2020 (the “Mandatory Conversion Date”).  Within five (5) trading days after the Mandatory Conversion Date, the Company is obligated to deliver an aggregate of 1,574,892 shares of Common Stock (equal to 314.9785 shares of Common Stock for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes) to the holder of the Converted Notes.
