Kodak Announces New Business Structure
Shares of Eastman Kodak rose sharply Tuesday on word of major restructuring. “They have a great legacy to rely back on. If they can get the pieces of the puzzle on the table and fit them together correctly after this resizing, reshaping, I think they’ll be fine, but it’s really dependent on having, possessing, selling, if you will, marketing, the key products that consumers want and the commercial marketplace as well,“ says George Cook, executive professor of business administration.
