Eastman Kodak Co. president and CEO Antonio Perez Wednesday celebrated the firm’s recent relisting on the New York Stock Exchange by ringing the exchange’s opening bell.
Following the company’s emergence from reorganization on Sept. 3, Kodak common shares began trading on the NYSE on Nov. 1 under the new KODK symbol.
Kodak stock (NYSE: KODK) was trading midday Wednesday at $37.40, up 3 percent from Tuesday’s close.
“This bell ringing is a symbol of Kodak’s remarkable transformation,” Perez said.
“It’s a new year, with a new company, a new stock and a new start,” he said. “We are a B2B company focused on innovating for our customers and delivering value to our shareholders. This bell ringing has extra significance for everyone at the new Kodak because we are reaffirming our strong connections with our customers by having some of them join us at this event.”
