Kodak Film Business on Brink of Being Sold: Report
Big news in the world of film photography: the Kodak film business is reportedly up for sale. Kodak Alaris is said to be looking to sell part or all of its business, and its film business, in particular, could be sold to another company within the next month or two.
When Kodak filed for bankruptcy in 2012, it owed $2.8 billion to the UK Kodak Pension Plan (KPP). To settle this, KPP paid $325 million for Kodak’s imaging and document imaging businesses, which included Kodak film, paper, and photochemicals. Kodak Alaris now shares rights to the Kodak brand name with the Eastman Kodak Company (which actually manufactures the film and paper sold by Kodak Alaris).
“[K]ey customers around the world have been privately briefed on the plans to ‘explore sales of some or all of [Kodak Alaris’] assets’ and that ‘PPF in particular [Kodak Alaris] disclosed as at an advanced stage of negotiations with a potential buyers’,” Inside Imaging writes after speaking to Kodak Alaris CEO Marc Jourlait.
KPP is reportedly facing a deficit of around $2.7 billion from the debt inherited as part of the original deal with Kodak in 2012. And although Kodak Alaris has been a “profitable, cash generating business” that’s helping with KPP’s numbers, Jourlait believes KPP will eventually need to move into the UK government’s Pension Protection Fund.
Thus, Kodak Alaris is now putting itself up for sale and in the process of looking for a suitable offer. If it’s unable to find a buyer willing to pay a fair price, Kodak Alaris (and therefore Kodak films) will fall into the hands of the Pension Protection Fund.
Jourlait tells Inside Imaging that Kodak’s film business has been up for sale since January 2018, and that there has already been interest from multiple potential buyers. Negotiations with one specific buyer are already in “advanced stages.”
Kodak Alaris is conservatively pegging the value of the film, paper, and chemistry business at $34 million, and it expects to complete a sale before March 31st, 2019.
Flickr has stated that after February 5th, 2019, accounts with over 1,000 photos and videos will begin to have their files deleted starting from oldest to newest until the account contains only the 1,000 most recently uploaded files.
If you’re over the limit and would like to download all your Flickr photos to prevent any from being deleted, Gizmodo notes that there are two ways you can do so.
The Camera Roll Method
Visit your Camera Roll found under the You dropdown menu in the top bar. Keep clicking Select All above groups of photos until you’ve selected about 500 shots. Finally, click Download at the bottom of the screen to create a ZIP file. When the download is packaged and ready to go, you’ll receive an alert (also found in the top menu).
The Album Method
Visit your Albums page found under the You dropdown menu in the top bar. Hover your mouse over any album and you’ll see a download icon for that album. Clicking this icon allows you to create a ZIP file for that album, which will also appear as an alert when it’s ready to go.
Note that the ZIP file may take a while to become available depending on how much data you’re cramming into it.
If you’d like to avoid the hassle and start paying for a subscription for unlimited photo and video storage, Flickr Pro costs $50/year for the annual plan or $6/month for the monthly plan (the equivalent of $72 per year).
