Kodak has a great brand name that has been squandered during the change to digital imaging. This author remembers having high margin Kodak film products in his dental office but they have since been replaced by new age digital brands. This author has beta tested overpriced and ill-conceived digital products for Kodak during this time.
Henry Kravis has an opportunity to revive a well-known brand. I would recommend a focus on healthcare because of the government’s push towards electronic medical records and the margins are also high. Kodak could also lead through the development of open source imaging.
