ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Eastman Kodak Co. has agreed to sell its personalized and document imaging businesses to its UK pension plan as part of an agreement that settles $2.8 billion of claims that the retirement fund had sought from the photography pioneer.
Eastman Kodak Co. said Monday that it is selling the businesses to the UK Kodak Pension Plan for $650 million. Kodak is working to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It says it plans to use some of the proceeds to emerge from bankruptcy and to grow its commercial imaging business.
Founded in 1880, Kodak filed for bankruptcy protection at the beginning of 2012. Since then Kodak has sold off several businesses and said it would shut others, including manufacturing digital cameras. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
