Kodak Reports First-Quarter 2022 Financial Results

KODK

Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: KODK) today reported financial results for the first quarter 2022, including consolidated revenues of $290 million and continued growth in key product areas such as KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates and KODAK PROSPER System annuities.

First-quarter 2022 highlights include:

  • Consolidated revenues of $290 million, compared with $265 million for Q1 2021
  • GAAP net loss of $3 million, compared with net income of $6 million for Q1 2021
  • Operational EBITDA of negative $7 million, compared with $3 million for Q1 2021
  • A quarter-end cash balance of $309 million, compared with $362 million at the end of 2021

“Kodak continued to manage through an extremely challenging business environment to deliver revenue growth for the first quarter of 2022,” said Jim Continenza, Kodak’s Executive Chairman and CEO. “We are also focused on long-term growth, making significant investments in print technology and the four Advanced Materials and Chemicals initiatives we announced earlier this year. Finding new ways to leverage our core strengths and delivering for our customers will be our focus as we execute our strategic plan.”

For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, revenues were $290 million, an improvement of $25 million compared to the same period in 2021. The Company had a GAAP net loss of $3 million for the quarter, compared to net income of $6 million in the prior-year quarter. Operational EBITDA for the first quarter was negative $7 million, compared to $3 million in Q1 2021. Operational EBITDA was favorably impacted by the growth in revenue due to improved pricing and volume, offset by higher ongoing global cost increases. Kodak ended the first quarter with a cash balance of $309 million, a decrease of $53 million from December 31, 2021. The decrease is primarily attributable to the impact of higher costs, changes in working capital and increased capital investment.

“Our quarter-end cash balance was generally in line with our expectations,” said David Bullwinkle, Kodak’s CFO. “We have successfully navigated supply chain issues by carrying higher-than-historical levels of inventory to maintain supply for our customers. We plan to continue executing our long-term strategy despite the ongoing supply chain challenges and rising costs.”

APPENDICES

A. NON-GAAP MEASURES

In this first quarter 2022 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 and other; stock-based compensation expense; consulting and other costs; idle costs; other operating income, net; interest expense; and other 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 three months ended March 31, 2021, rather than the actual average exchange rates in effect for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

The following table reconciles the most directly comparable GAAP measure of Net (Loss) Income to Operational EBITDA and Operational EBITDA on a constant currency basis for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively:
