$KODK bullish{*W* formation] breakout from [$10.50 $11] [-chart]finviz.com/chart.ashx?t=KODK&ty=c&ta=1&p=d&s=l[/chart]

$KODK IS CASH COW   $180 million in cash and equivalents

The stock was arguably trading for a bargain before the loan proposition came into play.
At one point during the year, the company's market capitalization fell to $120 million.
That's quite undervalued, considering Kodak generated $1.2 billion in revenue and $116 million in earnings last year.

While the mass adoption of smartphones crushed the digital camera industry, there is still demand for Kodak's legacy products, as well as its new ventures.
Currently, Kodak is investing much of its capital into the digital packaging and print sector, including the utilization of cloud-based platforms.
Kodak's new products will possess the fastest imaging technology available for printing items such as business cards, posters, and wallpapers.

What's the verdict?$180 million in cash and equivalentsased on its earnings from the first half of 2020,
Kodak is still on track to generate approximately $1 billion in revenue this year.
Meanwhile, the company has over $180 million in cash and equivalents to make up for its $113 million in long-term debt.
The company's market cap is about $461 million.

$KODK Exclusive: Eastman Kodak top executive got Trump deal windfall on an 'understanding'
Jessica DiNapoli and Tom Bergin
,Reuters•August 1, 2020
By Jessica DiNapoli and Tom Bergin
NEW YORK/LONDON (Reuters) - Eastman Kodak Co <KODK.N> 
on Monday granted its executive chairman options for 1.75 million shares as the result of what a person familiar with the arrangement described 
as an "understanding" with its board that had previously neither been listed in his employment contract nor made public.
One day later, 
the administration of President Donald Trump announced a $765 million financing deal with Eastman Kodak, 
and in the days that followed the stock soared, 
making those additional options now held by executive chairman Jim Continenza worth tens of millions.
The decision to grant Continenza options was never formalized or made into a binding agreement, 
which is why it was not disclosed previously, according to the person familiar with the arrangement. 
The options were granted to shield Continenza's overall stake in 
the company from being diluted by a $100 million convertible bond deal clinched in May 2019 to help Eastman Kodak stay afloat, 
according to the person's account.
While Kodak's approach is permissible, 
it is unusual because executives are paid to grow a company's 
long-term value and are not usually given extra compensation 
personally to cover events that may hurt share prices, several experts said.
Kodak disclosed the stock options award to Continenza in a filing to 
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which was previously reported. 
But the person familiar with the arrangement told Reuters that the transaction occurred because of the understanding with the board.
That arrangement reported by Reuters for the first time sheds new 
light on Eastman Kodak's handling of the unexpected windfall for its 
top executives.
An Eastman Kodak spokeswoman said that Continenza had no comment. 
The spokeswoman said the gains reflected by the rise in the share 
price are only on paper: Continenza, she said, 
"is a strong believer in the future of the company, a
nd has never sold a single share of stock."
Prior to this week's financing deal, 
the company warned investors it was at risk of not continuing as a 
going concern, but it was boosted by the agreement with the Trump administration on Tuesday to supply drug ingredients.
As a result, Continenza's gains at the end of this week amounted 
to about $83 million following a roughly 10-fold increase in Eastman Kodak's stock, compared to the approximately $53 million in gains he would have seen were it not for the additional options, 
according to a Reuters analysis of company filings.
Roughly 29% of the options Continenza received on Monday vested immediately, giving him the right to cash them out as soon as possible.
While most corporate boards and their committees have wide latitude 
in awarding options, three corporate governance experts interviewed 
by Reuters said the move to mitigate the impact of dilution on Continenza's stake in the company without a prior contractual 
obligation was unusual.
"The compensation committee's job is not to protect the CEO from 
every adverse effect on the stock price," 
said Sanjai Bhagat, a finance professor at the University of Colorado. 
"It's to get the CEO to think about long-term value."
A fourth expert, Robin Ferracone, chief executive of compensation consultant Farient Advisors, 
said the company may have offered the prospect of additional options 
to executives as they worked toward the convertible bond offering 
-- to avoid them being "disincentivized" to seal a deal that would 
help the firm but potentially water down their holdings.
The additional options awarded to Continenza, a former telecommunications executive, 
were approved by the board's compensation committee on Monday, 
the spokeswoman said. 
Shareholders had voted in May of this year to increase the shares available for executive compensation.
"The issue is the board wanted to make sure the CEO had the same economic alignment as was contemplated when he took the job," 
said a person close to the company.
The company's market capitalization jumped from a little over $100 million at the start of the week to almost $1 billion by Friday following the deal.
Eastman Kodak also granted options on Monday to three other executives, worth $712,000 each, 
according to regulatory filings. Kodak declined to comment on the reason for these awards.

The company has struggled to reinvent itself from a flagging camera company after emerging from bankruptcy in 2013. 
Its selection by the U.S. government for the production of key pharmaceutical ingredients surprised many industry analysts who 
expected such a deal to go to a major generic drug maker.
The government's U.S. International Development Finance Corporation released a July 28 statement quoting Continenza as saying: 
"Kodak will play a critical role in the return of a reliable American pharmaceutical supply chain."
President Trump, too, hailed the development. 
"I want to congratulate the people in Kodak," he said at a press briefing. "They’ve been working very hard."
