The commitment is superior to – and therefore replaces – the $793million commitment announced by the company on November 12.Company representaves say this nancing strengthens Kodak’s posion tosuccessfully execute its remaining reorganizaon objecves and emerge fromChapter 11 in the rst half of 2013.Each of the ten instuonal investors that comprise the Steering Commieeholds senior secured notes of the company. The improved nancing will be opento parcipaon by all other holders of the notes, including the investors thatextended the November 12 commitment.As we connue to progress toward successful emergence, we remain focused ondoing what is best for the company’s creditors and other stakeholders, includingour customers, suppliers, and employees. We are pleased that these exisngcreditors have come forward with a new proposal that oers beer terms andenables Kodak to further accelerate its momentum to emergence in the rsthalf of 2013,” said Antonio M. Perez, Chairman and Chief Execuve Ocer. “Theimproved nancing commitment provides a longer maturity, lower fees andpricing, and greater liquidity than our previously announced commitment. Thisis a vote of condence in the future of our company. We are parcularly pleasedthat the nancing allows for parcipaon by all of our pre-peon second liennoteholders in a manner that is cost-eecve for the company.The nancing includes new money term loans of $455 million, as well as termloans of up to $375 million issued to holders of senior secured notes parcipangin the new money loans in a dollar-for-dollar exchange for amounts outstandingunder the company’s pre-peon second lien notes.The nancing is predicated on certain condions, including the successfulcompleon of the sale of Kodak’s digital imaging patent porolio for no lessthan $500 million.The commitment leer also contains provisions allowing for a conversion of upto $630 million of the loans upon emergence into permanent exit nancing dueve years aer emergence, provided Kodak meets certain condions, includingthe consummaon of a Plan of Reorganizaon by September 30, 2013, theresoluon of the company’s U.K. pension obligaons, and the compleon of allor a poron of the sales of Kodak’s Document Imaging and Personalized Imagingbusinesses.The nancing is subject to compleon of denive nancing documentaon andBankruptcy Court approval at a hearing that will be scheduled in the near future.
