Kodak Reports First-Quarter 2021 Financial Results

·13 min read

Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: KODK) today reported financial results for the first quarter 2021, including consolidated revenues of $265 million and an increase in cash from a series of financial transactions previously announced.

First-quarter 2021 highlights include:

  • Consolidated revenues of $265 million

  • GAAP net income of $6 million

  • The Company ended the quarter with a cash balance of $401 million

"The steps we have taken in the last two years — strengthening our balance sheet, establishing a customer-first approach and continuing to invest in innovation — have created the foundation for growth," said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s Executive Chairman and CEO. "We will continue to execute on those strategies to create long-term value for our shareholders and our employees."

For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, revenues declined by only $2 million compared with the same period in 2020. Kodak ended the quarter with a cash balance of $401 million, up from the December 31, 2020 cash balance of $196 million. GAAP net income was $6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared with a net loss of $111 million in the prior-year quarter. The prior year quarter net loss includes expense of $167 million related to the increase in deferred tax valuation allowances for locations outside the U.S. and income of $53 million related to the change in fair value of embedded derivatives in the Series A Preferred Stock and Convertible Notes. Operational EBITDA was $3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared with negative $8 million in the first quarter 2020.

"We continued to see improved cash performance during the first quarter, including an improvement in working capital and an increase in our cash balance through several financing transactions that closed during the quarter," said David Bullwinkle, Kodak’s CFO. "During the first quarter we returned to growth in our key product areas, including SONORA Process Free Plates volume and PROSPER annuities which were up 8 and 12 percent respectively compared with the first quarter of 2020. We will continue to evaluate strategies for investing the capital raised through financing activities to generate additional growth."

APPENDICES

A. NON-GAAP MEASURES

In this first quarter 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 excluding the provision for income taxes; non-service cost components of pension and OPEB income; depreciation and amortization expense; restructuring costs; stock-based compensation expense; consulting and other costs; idle costs; other operating income, net; interest expense; and other income, 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 three months ended March 31, 2020, rather than the actual average exchange rates in effect for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

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