Kodak Files for Bankruptcy

Kodak Files for Bankruptcy - Eastman Kodak, the once mighty icon of the photography industry, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Thursday. Kodak's stock plunged 35% at the start of trading. The New York Stock Exchange suspended trading within a few minutes after the opening bell. The company said it has obtained $950 million in financing from Citibank to maintain operations. The company said the credit facility is still subject to court approval. Kodak said it has enough liquidity to continue operating during the bankruptcy process. Kodak acknowledged, in its Chapter 11 filing, that it had more than 100,000 creditors, with debts totaling $6.75 billion. Kodak company also said that it had assets of $5.1 billion, with properties in Rochester, N.Y., Windsor, Colo. and Weatherford, Okla. Kodak's top creditor is the Bank of New York Mellon (BK, Fortune 500) in its role as trustee for other bondholders, with claims of more than $650 million. Other creditors include Sony, Nokia, WalMart, Target (TGT, Fortune 500), Best Buy (BBY, Fortune 500), Office Max, Disney Studios and CVS. Kodak has long struggled to evolve from film and compete in the digital age, even though it was an early pioneer of digital photography. For months, bankruptcy rumors have dogged the venerable company, which was founded by George Eastman in 1888. Kodak Files for Bankruptcy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
