Kodak Pharmaceutical Is A Thing Now
So what happened?
Remember Kodak (Ticker: KODK)? You know, when cameras were these bulky things you bought to take pictures? It’s no surprise to any of us that with the rise of smartphones, Kodak lost its primary source of revenue. However, the company has been hanging around.
The news broke that Kodak just got more than $700 million in loan to pivot to the pharmaceutical business. The company’s market valuation is $120 million, and the loan value is more than seven times its market cap. The plan is for the company to use the loan to manufacture ingredients for American-made drugs. The justification is that the company has extensive manufacturing facilities to produce chemicals and is ready to produce drug ingredients.
Ever wonder who the investors in Kodak were before this loan? They are getting nearly a 200% gain in one day.
