Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure
On January 19, 2012, Eastman Kodak Company (the “Company”) and its U.S. domestic subsidiaries (together with the Company, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions for relief (the “Bankruptcy Filing”) under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Bankruptcy Court”), case number 12-10202.
On May 30, 2012, the Debtors filed their monthly operating report as of and for the period ending April 30, 2012 (the “Monthly Operating Report”) with the Bankruptcy Court. The April Monthly Operating Report is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
The Monthly Operating Report does not reflect the Company’s international businesses that were not part of the Bankruptcy Filing. Further, the financial information of the Debtors includes costs for which the Debtors are responsible on behalf of the entire Company. The Monthly Operating Report also includes other items such as transactions with non-debtor entities that are eliminated in the consolidated results, among other things, and excludes normal quarterly adjustments.
The information set forth in this Item 7.01 and the attached Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or otherwise subject to the liabilities in that section.
Cautionary Statement Regarding Financial Operating Data
The Monthly Operating Report is limited in scope, covers limited time periods and has been prepared solely for the purpose of complying with the Bankruptcy Court’s monthly reporting requirements, including the Debtors’ use of assets and cash position. The Monthly Operating Report was not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, has not been audited or reviewed by independent accountants, is in a format prescribed by applicable bankruptcy laws and is subject to future adjustment and reconciliation.
The Company cautions investors and potential investors not to place undue reliance on the information contained in the Monthly Operating Report, which was not prepared for the purpose of providing the basis for an investment decision relating to any of the securities of the Company. Unlike the information required in the Company’s quarterly and annual financial statements filed pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Securities Exchange Act”), the Monthly Operating Report contains information that may not be indicative of the Company’s financial condition or operating results for the periods that would be reflected in the Company’s financial statements or in its reports filed pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act, and are not comparable with those filings. There can be no assurance that, from the perspective of an investor or potential investor in the Company’s securities, that the Monthly Operating Report is complete. Results set forth in the Monthly Operating Report should not be viewed as indicative of future results.
Cautionary Statement Regarding Common Stock and Other Securities
The Company cannot predict what the ultimate value of any of its common stock or other securities may be and it remains too early to determine whether holders of any such securities will receive any distribution in the Debtors’ reorganization.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits
