Yup, but who didn't see this coming? Shouldn't affect us in the print side, hopefully. Oh, and their damage control is already on top of it - see attachment.

Got my letter bright and early this morning too. Without a change in management philosophy though I can't see it improving much for them.

Seeing as after repeated requests they still haven't changed my email address so I didn't get the letter.

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

I have to wonder how this news was viewed at the 2012 GUA Conference thingy that's going on this week in New Orleans.  :laugh:

I'm sure Kodak put a cheery spin on it like they did in that email.

at least they're not Zion, IL. Town is selling off City Hall to cover debt.

Chapter 11 is just a business tool. They'll shed some debt and be able to make a better go of the parts of their business that are profitable. There's a joke about filing chapter 22 (2nd chapter 11) or even chapter 33. The auto makers seem to be able to do this regularly and still produce and sell cars and trucks.

Moderately interesting take on the whole deal. I'm particularly fond of this quote near the bottom of the first page:

"The amount of pain that printers and printing companies are going to take over the next five years is immense."

Well, isn't that just a rosy prediction!  :banana:
