Business Wire

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- November 16, 2012

Eastman Kodak Company today announced that it will extend its relationship
with CVS/pharmacy through 2016. CVS/pharmacy operates 7,400 stores across the
U.S. and is the largest customer of Kodak’s Retail Systems Solutions (RSS)
business. RSS is the world leader in retail print solutions with a global
footprint of 105,000 KODAK Picture Kiosks.

“CVS/pharmacy is a valued partner to Kodak. This four-year extension of our
relationship is great news for both companies, and for consumers who enjoy our
services,” said Laura Quatela, President of Kodak and Personalized Imaging.
“Together, Kodak and CVS/pharmacy have advanced the in-store photo experience,
offering consumers a variety of quality, personalized products they can create
instantly and easily. We thank CVS/pharmacy for their partnership and look
forward to continuing to work with them to grow their photo services

CVS/pharmacy has over 15,000 KODAK Picture Kiosks in its stores. As part of
this agreement, CVS/pharmacy will be upgrading and expanding its fleet of
KODAK Adaptive Picture Exchange (APEX) dry lab systems, which provide a more
economical way for retailers to produce photo products, improve profitability,
reduce their environmental footprint, and expand their customer offerings.
Following the positive customer response to the print from FACEBOOK feature,
CVS/pharmacy recently launched mobile printing from smartphones to the KODAK

Because this new agreement resolves certain pre-chapter 11 issues between the
two companies, it will be brought before the Court for approval at a hearing
scheduled for December 7.

“As we proceed with the sale process for the Personalized Imaging business,
which includes RSS, this agreement is further proof of customer demand for
Kodak’s market-leading products and services – and potential buyers recognize
this,” added Quatela. “We remain strongly committed to providing our customers
with the high level of service we always have.”
