Kodak selling imaging assets to Brother for $210 million Bankrupt Eastman Kodak has announced today that it has agreed to sell document-imaging assets to Brother for $210 million, setting a starting bid if other companies want to compete for them.
Brother, which sells office equipment like multi-function printers, will also assume $67 million in customer prepayment liabilities.

In its effort to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the company has been selling assets and slimming down. Kodak sold $525 million worth of digital-imaging patents last year, shut down their consumer inkjet printer unit, and is searching for buyers for its consumer film and photo kiosks.

The eventual goal is to emerge as a profitable company working with commercial printing and packaging.

Arrogant management without foresight has doomed Kodak. It is shame. Many people in Rochester, NY lost jobs because of the poor decisions made by management.
