Our ol’ pal Gary Pageau spoke with executives from Kodak at PMA@CES last month, and reported on those talks over at Kiosk Marketplace.
Kodak says its been meeting with potential buyers for its photography business, “and there’s been a handful who have come forward that are very interested in the business.” An auction is set for March.
By June of 2013, the personalized imaging component of Kodak would be separate from Kodak, as an ongoing organization with new owners. That business includes 106,000 kiosk units installed.
Kodak went into bankruptcy last year and is selling off its personal imaging business; it’s sold its digital imaging patent portfolio for $527 million, and recently won approval for a financing deal worth $843.7 million.
