Kodak Reports Full-Year 2021 Financial Results

·15 min read

ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 15, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: KODK) today reported financial results for the full year 2021, including consolidated revenues of $1.150 billion and continued growth in key product areas such as SONORA Process Free Plates and PROSPER annuities.

Full-year 2021 highlights include:

  • Consolidated revenues of $1.150 billion, compared with $1.029 billion for the full year 2020

  • GAAP net income of $24 million, compared with a net loss of $541 million for 2020

  • Operational EBITDA of $11 million, compared with negative $1 million for 2020

  • A year-end cash balance of $362 million, compared with $196 million at the end of 2020

"Kodak continued to navigate through an unusually challenging business environment in 2021 and delivered revenue growth in all our segments for the first time in years," said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s Executive Chairman and CEO. "We also saw increases in customer satisfaction and market share in our key print business, achievements which reflect the success of our ongoing strategy: focus on our core businesses in commercial print and advanced materials and chemicals, invest in product innovation and put our customers at the center of everything we do."

For the full year ended December 31, 2021, revenues were $1.150 billion, an improvement of $121 million compared to the same period in 2020. GAAP net income was $24 million for the full year, compared to a net loss of $541 million in 2020. The prior year included a charge of $416 million to reflect the increased value of the derivative liability embedded in the convertible notes immediately prior to conversion and expense of $167 million related to the increase in deferred tax valuation allowances for locations outside the U.S. Operational EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $11 million, compared to negative $1 million in 2020. The increase was primarily the result of improvement in revenue and manufacturing costs from increases in volume partially offset by ongoing global cost increases in 2021. The current year Operational EBITDA results did not benefit from $25 million in savings from temporary pay cuts and furloughs that largely ended in January 2021. Kodak ended the year with a cash balance of $362 million, an increase of $166 million from December 31, 2020. The increase is primarily attributable to net proceeds received of $247 million from the financing transactions completed in the first quarter of 2021.

"The Company ended 2021 with $362 million in cash, an increase of $166 million from December 31, 2020," said David Bullwinkle, Kodak’s CFO. "The Company’s balance sheet is the strongest it has been in years due to the execution of our strategy. We continue to execute on our plan by driving increases in cost efficiency through automation and process innovation and redesign."

APPENDICES

A. NON-GAAP MEASURES

In this full year 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 before income taxes excluding earnings from discontinued operations, net of 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 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 twelve months ended December 31, 2020, rather than the actual average exchange rates in effect for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.

The following table reconciles the most directly comparable GAAP measure of Net Income (Loss) to Operational EBITDA for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively:
