ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- March 15, 2013

Eastman Kodak Company (“Kodak” or the “Company”) today announced the
expiration, at 5:00 p.m. on March 14, 2013, of the offer to holders of its
outstanding 10.625% Senior Secured Notes due March 15, 2019 (CUSIP Nos.
277461BK4 and U27746AH6) and 9.75% Senior Secured Notes due March 1, 2018
(CUSIP Nos. 277461BH1 and U27746AG8) (together, the “Notes”) to (i) subscribe
for up to an aggregate amount of $455,000,000 of term loans (the “New Money
Loans”) under a new junior secured priming superpriority debtor-in-possession
term loan facility (the “Junior DIP Facility”); and (ii) exchange Notes for up
to an aggregate amount of $375,000,000 of junior term loans (the “Junior
Loans”) under the Junior DIP Facility. The offer was oversubscribed.

Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC, the information agent for the offer (the
“Information Agent”), will notify holders whose commitments to participate
were accepted (“Participating Holders”) of their allocated amounts of New
Money Loans and Junior Loans, and provide them with funding and tender
instructions on or before Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Participating Holders will
be required to fund their allocated amounts of New Money Loans, tender Notes
for exchange into Junior Loans and provide signature pages to the Junior DIP
Facility credit agreement by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 21, 2013. Kodak
expects that both the closing of the Junior DIP Facility and the amendment and
restatement of Kodak’s existing DIP Facility will occur on Friday, March 22,
2013.

Subject to the closing of both facilities, on March 22, 2013, Kodak will make
a “catch up” adequate protection payment in the aggregate amount of
approximately $116 million to the record holders of Notes on March 21, 2013.
Thereafter, the Company will make monthly adequate protection payments in
arrears to holders of outstanding Notes in an amount equal to current
non-default interest on such Notes. The record date for holders entitled to
receive the monthly adequate protection payments will be the last business day
of the applicable month and the adequate protection payment date will be the
tenth business day of the following month.
