Risk factors related to our business the company has undergone a major restructuring of its business and adopted a new business plan, including a new branch reporting structure.
The restructured company and the new business plan take effect for a limited period of time and there is no guarantee that the company can successfully implement its business plan or successfully operate the business as a restructured company.
The investment focus of the company is commercial imaging and printing, especially commercial inkjet, packaging and functions (Micro 3D)
Business services and solutions.
These businesses require additional investment and may not succeed.
In order to develop these businesses, increase profit margins, achieve our financial goals, it is necessary to introduce successful innovative products and achieve scale at market competitive prices.
In addition, our strategy is based on factors and assumptions, some of which are outside our control, such as actions by third parties.
There is no guarantee that we can successfully implement all or any elements of our strategy, nor that our ability to successfully execute the strategy will not be affected by external factors.
If we fail to develop the company\'s investment business as planned or perceive the needs of our target customers, our financial performance may be adversely affected.
If Kodak is unable to successfully implement its strategic business plan, or encounters implementation delays in reducing the cost structure, the combined results of the company\'s operations, financial position and liquidity may be negatively affected.
We recognize the need to rationalize Kodak\'s workforce and rationalize operations as a more streamlined and focused organization aligned with emerging businesses and operations.
We have implemented cost rationalized plans including manufacturing, supply chain, marketing, sales and restructuring of administrative resources.
There is no guarantee that these measures will prove successful and that the results we have achieved through these plans will be in line with our expectations.
As a result, our operating results, financial position and liquidity may be negatively affected.
In addition, if the restructuring plan is not managed effectively, we may experience customer sales losses, product delays, additional costs and other unexpected effects, thereby damaging our business and customer relationships.
Some assumptions, predictions, and analysis are required for the business plan.
If these assumptions prove incorrect, we may not be able to execute our business plan or achieve the expected results, which may adversely affect our financial results and liquidity.
Finally, the timing and implementation of these plans requires compliance with many laws and regulations, including local labor laws, which may cause damage if they are not complied, fines and penalties that may adversely affect the Company\'s business.
Kodak\'s inability to effectively complete and manage partnerships and other major transactions can adversely affect our business performance, including financial performance.
As part of the company\'s strategy, we may discuss possible divestiture, asset sales, divestiture with third parties
Deals, investments, acquisitions, strategic alliances, joint ventures and outsourced transactions, and possible agreements relating to these transactions to advance our business objectives.
In order to successfully implement this strategy, we must identify the right buyers, sellers and partners and successfully complete the transaction, some of which may be large and complex and manage the post-period
End the problem such as canceling any remaining posts
Sales costs related to divestiture business.
For larger, more complex transactions, or when multiple transactions are conducted at the same time, the transaction risk may be more obvious.
If we fail to identify and successfully complete the transaction that promotes the company\'s strategic objectives, we may need to spend resources developing products and technologies internally, and we may be at a competitive disadvantage, or we may be adversely affected by negative market perceptions.
Any of these factors can have a negative impact on our income, gross margin and profitability.
In addition, the unpredictable nature of such trading hours may adversely affect our financial results.
We may seek acquisitions or mergers that may fail or cause unexpected problems for our business in the future, this will adversely affect our ability to achieve the expected benefits of these transactions, or increase the price we need to pay.
We may seek to make deals including acquisitions or mergers with other businesses.
We may not be able to identify suitable acquisition or merger opportunities or financing or successfully complete any particular acquisition or merger.
In addition, acquisitions and mergers involve many risks and challenges, including: the ability to obtain required regulatory and other approvals;
· Need to integrate acquisition or joint operations with our operations;
Potential losses to key employees;
Difficult to assess operating costs, infrastructure requirements, environmental and other liabilities and other factors beyond our control;
• Possible lack of operational experience in new geographic areas;
Increase our spending and working capital needs;
The management\'s attention may be temporarily diverted;
And the possibility that we may need to issue a large number of additional equity or debt securities or assume additional debt in connection with any such transaction.
Any of these factors may adversely affect our ability to achieve the expected cash flow level or to achieve synergies or other expected benefits of strategic transactions.
In addition, the trading market is highly competitive, which may adversely affect our ability to find deals that meet our strategic objectives or increase the prices we need to pay (
This may reduce the benefit of the transaction, or hinder our desire or ability to complete the transaction).
Strategic transactions can happen at any time, and they can be large relative to our assets and operations.
If the company is unable to successfully develop new products or commercialize new products, our business, financial position and operational results may be affected.
We usually sell our products in industries with rapid technological changes, frequent introduction of new products and services, and changing industry standards.
If new products, services and enhancements are not introduced in a timely manner, our products and services will be technically obsolete over time, in which case our revenue and operational results will
Therefore, our future business results will depend to a large extent on whether we can successfully commercialize new products in a timely manner.
The success of our new products and services will depend on several factors, including our ability to identify customer needs;
Innovation and Development of new technologies, services and applications;
Timely commercialize new technologies;
Produce and deliver sufficient quantity of products on time;
Distinguish our products from those of our competitors;
Competitive pricing of our products and services;
Predict the development of new products, services or technological innovations of competitors;
Work successfully with our partners, including UniPixel, Bobst and Kingsbury;
Control product quality in our manufacturing process.
Due to these and other factors, the products that Kodak is currently developing may or may not be commercialized successfully.
If any of our key products are not successful or commercialized in a timely manner, the results of our operations may be adversely affected.
In addition, even if we successfully commercialize these products, we cannot guarantee that any investment we make in developing our products will be recovered, which may have a significant adverse impact on our business, financial position and operating results.
We may not be able to successfully commercialize micro 3D printing technology, one of our target markets, which may have a significant adverse impact on our business, operational results and financial position.
We are commercializing micro 3D printing, one of our target markets.
In some or all areas where we seek to enter micro 3D printing, we may not be able to successfully develop and market products.
The development, production, marketing or administrative costs generated by these products may exceed the expected and operating cash flow.
Customers may favor other technologies or solutions, and our products may not be competitive in terms of cost, functionality or other features.
In addition, our competitors may have better technology that we can\'t get, and may have more money or other resources to support the development and marketing of their products.
We rely on our partners, such as UniPixel and Kingsbury, to acquire the technology and other expertise that are essential to our efforts to commercialize micro 3D printing products.
The problems that exist in these companies or in our relationship with them may adversely affect our technology commercialisation program.
The investment required to develop the product may exceed our expectations.
In the event of any or all of these risks, we may not be able to achieve the benefits associated with our investment in micro 3D printing, which may have a significant adverse impact on our business, operating performance and financial status.
If Kodak\'s commercial and manufacturing processes fail to prevent product reliability, yield and quality issues, our product launch plans may be delayed and our financial results may be adversely affected, our reputation could be damaged.
In developing, commercializing and manufacturing Kodak products and services, we must fully address reliability, yield and other quality issues, including defects in our engineering, design and manufacturing processes, and the third defect.
Party components included in our product.
Due to the complexity and complexity of Kodak\'s products, as the technology develops and commercializes rapidly, the appearance of defects may increase, especially with the introduction of new product series.
Unexpected issues with product performance may delay product release plans, which may result in additional costs, revenue, and loss of revenue.
Although we have established internal procedures to minimize the risks that may arise from product quality issues, we cannot guarantee that we can eliminate or mitigate the occurrence of these issues and related liability.
Product reliability, yield and quality issues may compromise our relationship with new or existing customers and adversely affect our brand image, product quality issues can lead to recalls, warranty our reputation as a producer of high quality products can be affected, which can adversely affect our business and financial results.
For us to continue to operate our business, our ability to generate positive cash flow is necessary.
While Kodak has significantly reduced the ratio of negative operating cash flow over the past two years, we continue to create net negative operating cash flow.
There is no guarantee that Kodak will generate positive cash flow from operations in the future, which may have a significant adverse impact on Kodak\'s liquidity and financial situation.
Continuous investment, capital needs, restructuring payments and repayment of corporate debt require significant amounts of cash, and we may not be able to generate the cash needed to finance these activities, this may adversely affect our business, operating results and financial position.
Kodak\'s business may not generate enough cash flow to enable us to pay the principal or interest on the debt and to fund Kodak\'s other liquidity needs, including working capital, capital expenditures, product development efforts, strategic acquisitions, investments and alliances, restructuring actions and other general company requirements.
Kodak\'s ability to generate cash is influenced by general economic, financial, competitive, litigation, regulatory and other factors that we cannot control.
We cannot assure you that Kodak\'s business will generate sufficient cash flow from operations;
Kodak will be able to remit or transfer cash back to where and when cash is needed;
Kodak will meet all conditions for borrowing or issuing a letter of credit under an asset-based revolving credit agreement (
\"ABL Credit Agreement \");

Maintain a good control environment;
Respond quickly to changes in customer demand for the company\'s products;
Obtain the supplies and materials needed for the manufacturing process;
Or mitigate the impact of labor shortages and/or disruptions.
In addition, even if Kodak fulfills its payment and other obligations to the main suppliers of products, components and services, these suppliers may choose to unilaterally withhold products, components or services, or change in terms of payment.
In addition, due to unexpected demand, transport and logistics constraints, we may encounter supply shortages and service disruptions, and/or disruption or production difficulties from our suppliers, such as interruptions caused by fires, other natural disasters or events beyond the control of suppliers.
In addition, due to the financial difficulties of our suppliers themselves, or the decrease in the products provided by these suppliers, disruption may lead to a decrease in the number of our suppliers.
Due to the loss of any supplier, or a substantial reduction in the supply of our supplier\'s products, we may not be able to fulfill our customer commitments and our costs may be higher than planned, our cash flow and the reliability of our company\'s products may be negatively affected.
In this case, Kodak will vigorously enforce its contractual rights, but we cannot guarantee success in preventing or mitigating the impact of unilateral actions by suppliers.
Other supplier problems we may face include shortage of electronic components, oversupply, the term of the Assembly and material contract with Kodak with the supplier and the risk associated with termination, and the risks associated with the favorable conditions or fundamentals of relying on a single source supplier.
If alternative third-party relationships are not established, the realization of these risks may result in supply disruption or increased costs, which may result in Kodak being unable to meet the customer\'s demand for our products, damaged our relationship with Kodak customers and reduced market share, all of which may adversely affect our operating results and financial situation.

If we cannot protect the intellectual property rights on which the company\'s business depends, or if a third party claims that we have violated their intellectual property rights, revenues, fees and liquidity may be adversely affected.
One of Kodak\'s key advantages in many of our businesses is the technical advantages of our products and solutions relative to our competitors.
Kodak\'s intellectual property rights support our technological advantages.
Patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets laws in the United States and similar laws in other countries, as well as non-
Disclosure, secrecy and other types of agreements with Kodak employees, customers, suppliers and other parties may be invalid in establishing, maintaining and executing Kodak intellectual property rights.

Moreover, laws in some countries do not protect ownership as they do in the United States.
Therefore, in some jurisdictions, we may not be able to adequately protect Kodak\'s proprietary technology from unauthorized third-party copying, infringement or use, which may adversely affect our competitive position.
In addition, due to the rapid technological change in the information technology industry, most of Kodak\'s business and many of Kodak\'s products rely on key technologies developed or approved by third parties, we may not be able to obtain or continue to obtain licenses and technologies from these third parties at all or on reasonable terms.

There is no guarantee that Kodak\'s patent application will be approved, that any patents issued will fully protect Kodak\'s intellectual property rights, and that these patents will not be challenged by third parties.
In addition, third parties may claim that Kodak\'s customers, licensees or other parties we compensate for have violated their intellectual property rights.
Competitors seeking to block or restrict our access to certain markets may make such claims.
In addition, in recent years, individuals and groups have begun to purchase intellectual property assets with the sole purpose of filing claims for infringement and trying to secure settlements from large companies like ours.
Even if we believe that these claims are unreasonable, they may have the following negative effects on our business: claims may take time and cost defense and may distract management from their attention and resources;
Claims for intellectual property infringement may require us to redesign the affected products, enter into expensive settlements or agreements, or pay expensive damages, or face a temporary or permanent ban that prohibits us from selling or selling certain products;
Even if we agree to compensate us for such costs, it may not be possible for the indemnity party to meet its contractual obligations;
If we simply cannot or do not license the infringing technology, license the technology in a reasonable terms, or substitute similar technology from another source, our income and income may be adversely affected
Finally, we use open source software in terms of products and services.
Companies that incorporate open source software into their products from time to time face claims that challenge the ownership of open source software and/or comply with the terms of the open source license.
Therefore, the company may be subject to litigation by parties claiming ownership of what we consider to be open source software or not complying with the terms of the open source license.
Some open source software licenses require users who distribute open source software as part of the software to disclose all or part of the source code to such software and/or provide adverse terms or free open source code;
Any requirement to disclose the company\'s source code or to pay damages for breach of contract may damage our operating results and financial position.
