The outlook for Kodak Eastman’s future does not look good after Sahm Adragi, the chief investment officer of Kerrisdale Capital, went public about his skepticism towards the company and their new proposed products. These products include a type of cryptocurrency that is aimed solely at photographers and those who license their pictures as well as a licensing system for images. These products are known as KodakCoin and KodakOne, and Sahm Adrangi believes both are doomed to complete failure if they even make it out of planning stages at all.
Kodak’s recent announcement of KodakOne and KodakCoin garnered a lot of buzz and excitement initially to investors, but Sahm Adrangi and many others think that this is just temporary. Kodak’s stock initially rose a considerable amount directly after the announcement, but it fell almost to its beginning price after Sahm Adrangi and Kerrisdale Capital issued their negative report on the company.
Kodak’s prospects have looked pretty bleak for awhile due to poor business practices and an unsustainable capital structure that Sahm Adrangi thinks will collapse at any time. The outlook is so grim for the company that many expect that it is just a matter of time before they are forced into bankruptcy.
The products themselves are undevelopable according to the report issued by Kerrisdale Capital. This is due to not only technical issues surrounding them but also legal issues as well. A day before Kodak went public with the announcements, members of the company’s own board purchased stocks privately. This behavior will most likely result in an eventual investigation by the SEC according to a legal expert who formerly worked for the Securities and Exchange Committee. This is not the only suspicious behavior surrounding Kodak’s new products as the president of the company they are partnering with for the project, Wenn Digital, has very close ties with a businessman who has been convicted of fraud.
Even if the products did manage to work, Sahm Adrangi doesn’t believe that photographers will be interested in it. This is due to the fact that KodakCoin is only digital currency while most people will want to get paid with legal tender for their work.
OSI Industries knows a lot about expansion. They know what it takes to be the best and they’ll do everything they can to get to that point. Since the company started, they’ve seen continuous growth.

As long as OSI Food Solutions is acquiring companies, they know they need to keep working hard and giving people all the things they need. When they recently took over the Tyson facility, they found they were doing things better than they ever had. Part of the hard work they did went into the double production of chicken products. Having Tyson in line with them gave them a chance to try different things. It also allowed them the ability to make sure things were going right for the business.
While they were working to ramp up their business to go along with the double chicken production, OSI Food Solutions knew they were doing everything right. They had a lot of things they needed to do to be sure their business was going to keep working in the future, but they prepared for it. They spent time showing people how things would look in the future and what it would mean for their own companies. After having a shortage of chicken for a long time, companies wouldn’t need to worry about what they were going to do.
Since OSI Food Solutions always has the answer to issues like food shortages, many businesses look up to them. In fact, many companies wouldn’t be where they are without OSI Food Solutions. Even the larger companies and international brands rely on OSI Food Solutions to come up with everything they need for food. They know people will always need food and companies will always see the positive parts of the food industry so they do what they can to help them with the options they need to see success.
