4 About your 211 SIP Annual Report The Eastman Kodak Employees Savings and Investment Plan (SIP) offers many different options in which to invest your savings. To keep it simple, SIP separates these choices into three easy-to-understand tiers that meet the needs of almost any investor: Retirement Date Trusts, Core Funds, and a brokerage window known as TradeLink. SIP OFFERS CHOICE, FLEXIBILITY, AND SIMPLICITY The 211 SIP Annual Report explains the three tiers. It also provides important background information about the options and reports how they ve performed over the past 1 years. You should consider this information as you are making your investment decisions. If you would like more information after reading the SIP Annual Report, call the SIP-Line at 1-8-SIP-4YOU ( ). The fund information sheets include investment objectives, risks, fees, expenses, and other information that you should read and consider carefully before investing. Tier I: Retirement Date Trusts* This tier is made up of 12 common trust funds: the T. Rowe Price Retirement Date Trusts. Each Retirement Date Trust offers a professionally managed, diversified portfolio, which is automatically rebalanced with specific dates in mind. Each Retirement Date Trust is designed to satisfy the task of allocating one s assets among a variety of appropriate asset classes. If you aren t very comfortable with choosing your own investments or determining the correct asset allocation, Tier I could be right for you. The Retirement Date Trusts simplify investment decision-making so you can concentrate on the big picture. Each Retirement Date Trust is a one-step, premixed, professionally managed trust of trusts, designed to provide: One-step, complete portfolios The trusts are truly one-step, complete portfolios. You don t need to mix and match them with other options. Diversification The trusts offer you professional diversification that may mitigate the overall risk of your portfolio. Exposure to equities and income The trusts give you exposure to both equities and income-generating securities that seek the highest total return over time at a level of risk that is appropriate for the investment time horizon. The risk level is gradually reduced as the trust nears the stated target date and continues for approximately 3 years after the target date. Rebalancing Professional rebalancing is designed to help your retirement account stay on track with your goals without having to rebalance the investment yourself. If you decide a Retirement Date Trust is right for you, simply select the one that most closely matches the year you plan to retire, or choose one based on the year you were born (see chart below). If you were born... In 1988 or after In 1937 or before This Retirement Date Trust may be right for you... Retirement 255 Trust Retirement 25 Trust Retirement 245 Trust Retirement 24 Trust Retirement 235 Trust Retirement 23 Trust Retirement 225 Trust Retirement 22 Trust Retirement 215 Trust Retirement 21 Trust Retirement 25 Trust Retirement Income Trust The trusts assume a retirement age of 65, but this is a guideline only. If the date you have in mind falls between two trusts, choosing the trust with the earlier date may expose you to less risk (the chance of losing money) and also less return (the chance to earn more). Trusts with later dates invest more aggressively that is, you have a greater potential for both risk and reward. * The T. Rowe Price Retirement Date Trusts (the Trusts ) are not mutual funds. They are common trust funds established by T. Rowe Price Trust Company under Maryland banking law, and their units are exempt from registration under the Securities Act of Units of the Trusts are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed by, the U.S. government, its agencies, or T. Rowe Price Trust Company and are subject to investment risks, including possible loss of principal. Diversification cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in any market. 2

5 Tier II: Core Funds Core Funds allow you to choose from funds that represent a broad range of asset classes. These funds are primarily index-based funds, which are designed to hold the same securities as the indexes they follow. An index is an unmanaged basket of securities whose collective performance is used to track various segments of the financial markets. Some of the core funds are considered passively invested because the manager simply invests to follow the index. The Tier II Core Funds cost less compared to actively managed funds. The main idea of Tier II is to provide low-cost access to major asset classes. With these funds, you can spread your investments across the major asset classes and create your own diversified portfolio to match your needs and comfort level with risk. Tier III: TradeLink TradeLink is a brokerage service* for those who like lots of choice and are experienced with investing. With TradeLink, you may expand and diversify your retirement plan account with mutual funds outside of the funds offered within SIP.** The service is offered to you through an arrangement SIP has with T. Rowe Price Investment Services, Inc. Summaries of your TradeLink balances appear on your SIP quarterly account statement, and detailed brokerage statements are sent each quarter and in any month when trading activity occurs. TradeLink investment choices may be subject to greater volatility and risk of loss than SIP s Tier II plan investments. Also, there can be additional transaction fees associated with investing through TradeLink. Potential investment gains may be offset by transaction fees. Transaction fees for no-load mutual funds range from $ (for no transaction-fee funds) to $7 (for exchanges between different transaction-fee fund families). Additional fees may be charged for early redemption. Purchases of funds involving load fees and sales of funds involving redemption fees will result in sales commissions being charged to you at the time of the trade. To request a TradeLink application kit or to obtain more information, please call the SIP-Line Service Center at 1-8-SIP-4YOU ( ). *Brokerage services are offered by T. Rowe Price Investment Services, Inc., member FINRA/SIPC. TradeLink brokerage accounts are carried by Pershing, LLC, a subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (member NYSE/FINRA/SIPC), which acts as a clearing broker for T. Rowe Price Investment Services. **Some investments may be closed to new investors or otherwise not available. The TradeLink application kit provides details on these exceptions.

6 Tier I: Retirement Date Trusts The historical charts below show where each of the Tier I s 12 Retirement Date Trusts falls on the spectrum of risk and return. As the 25-year chart shows, generally, the lower the relative risk of an investment, the lower its historical return has been. Likewise, the higher the degree of risk, the higher its historical return has been over the long term. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Historical 8-Year Risk and Return 2% Historical 25-Year Risk and Return 2% Annualized Return 1 5 5% 1% 15% 2% 25% Risk Standard Deviation of Monthly Returns Annualized 2 2 The principal value of the Retirement Date Trusts is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the target date, which is the approximate date when investors turn age 65. The trusts invest in up to five underlying trusts that include ROR stocks, bonds, and short-term investments and are subject to the risks of different areas of the market. The trusts emphasize potential capital appreciation during the early phases of retirement 15 asset accumulation, balance the need for appreciation with the need for income as retirement approaches, and focus more on income Move and upprin- cipal stability during retirement. The trusts maintain a substantial allocation to equities both prior to and after the target date, which 242 can PTS result in 15 greater volatility. 1 1 Retirement Income Trust 25 Trust 21 Trust 215 Trust 22 Trust 23 Trust 225 Trust 235 Trust 24 Trust 245 Trust 25 Trust 255 Trust Annualized Return Trust 25 Trust Retirement Income Trust 225 Trust 23 Trust 215 Trust 22 Trust 235 Trust 24 Trust 245 Trust 25 Trust 255 Trust 5% 1% 15% 2% 25% Risk Standard Deviation of Monthly Returns Annualized t pts DTP move chart vertically 242 pts for placement Two time periods are presented for perspective on volatility over the longer term (25 years) and over the more recent period (8 years). The charts are for periods ending 12/31/11. Returns for a given trust represent the actual trust performance dating back to the inception date of that trust. For all trusts shown, actual trust performance does not date back 8 or 25 years. As a result, a blended index return has been linked to each trust prior to its inception date. The blended index is composed of four major indices (Wilshire 5, Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Bond, MSCI EAFE Net, and 9 Day T-bills), which are mixed in a way such that they reflect the allocation of the trust at the time of inception. For all of the T. Rowe Price Trusts, the returns are based on actual portfolio returns starting July 1, 28, and returns for the major indices are used as proxies prior to that date. These proxies were calculated and rebalanced monthly using the allocations of the trusts at inception. 4

11 Tier I: Retirement Date Trusts (cont.) Investment manager: The trustee, T. Rowe Price Trust Company (Baltimore, MD), is responsible for the day-to-day management of the trusts and is advised by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc., and T. Rowe Price International Ltd. registered investment advisers. Where to find the trusts: These are collective investment trusts organized for employee benefit plans and are privately offered. Daily price information is available by calling the SIP-Line or going online. Estimated annual expenses: Estimated expense ratio:.43% Trustee fee: The trustee fees listed here represent the annualized trustee fee of the T. Rowe Price Retirement Date Trusts. The trustee of the T. Rowe Price Retirement Date Trusts, T. Rowe Price Trust Company, uses the fee primarily to pay normal operating expenses associated with the trusts, including custodial, accounting, recordkeeping, and investment advisory services provided by third parties. Such providers may be affiliates of the trustee. 211 recap: Each trust beat its respective index portfolio benchmark for the fourth quarter, yet lagged for the year. In 211, the markets experienced volatility, led mainly by macro-economic events. In the first half of the year, political turmoil in the Middle East; the Japanese disaster; the downgrade of Greece s government bonds followed by Spain and Portugal; and inflationary concerns in China derailed the markets. Strong corporate profit news and optimism for a potential QE3 boosted markets toward the tail end of June. In the third quarter, Congress grappled with the U.S. debt ceiling and Standard & Poor s took away the country s pristine AAA-rated status. Internationally, the eurozone agreement, aimed at fixing sovereign debt concerns in the region, and Greece s subsequent referendum vote, shocked markets. The fourth quarter was a continuation of these major concerns, but markets did get a boost as investors reacted positively to data on unemployment, consumer spending, and corporate earnings announcements. Domestically, GDP growth increased to 2.8% in the fourth quarter, up from 1.8% in the third. Unemployment fell to 8.5%, the lowest level since 29. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) was at 3% by year-end, with Core CPI at around 2.2%. Fixed income markets were mostly positive. Long-term Treasuries and Treasury Inflation Protected Securities were the strongest performing sectors in the bond market. Global bond performance was led by U.K. and Australian bonds. In equities, nearly all S&P 5 sectors, with the exception of financials, industrials, and materials, ended up positive. Large-capitalization stocks outpaced their smaller-capitalization counterparts, and growth stocks outperformed value stocks across the market capitalization spectrum. Additionally, domestic equities outpaced international equities for the year. Internationally, most MSCI EAFE sectors lagged for the year, with the exceptions of consumer staples, health care, and energy. Emerging markets lagged developed international markets, a reversal from 21. According to the manager, equities continue to be favored over fixed income. Domestically, growth stocks were favored over value stocks, as T. Rowe Price is looking to take advantage of the low-growth environment. Exposure to emerging market equities and bonds were also slightly dialed up. T. Rowe Price maintains its commitment to providing participants with retirement success. 9

12 Tier II: Core Funds The historical charts below show Tier II s six Core Funds and where each falls on the spectrum of risk and return. Remember, past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The charts for periods ending 12/31/211 are based on monthly returns. For the Fixed Income and Kodak Stock Fund, returns reflect actual SIP experience. The index funds were incepted into the SIP Plan 6 in December 27. As a result, longer-term performance in terms of actual SIP experience is not available. For these funds prior to January 1, 28, monthly returns of the benchmark that best represents each index fund is used as a proxy for the return. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. 3 ROR

13 Short-Term Bond Fund Fund #562 Investment objective/approach: The fund employs a management strategy designed to track the performance of a blend of fixed income indices consisting of 5% Barclays Capital U.S. Government Bond 1-5 Year Index, 4% Barclays Capital U.S. Credit 1-5 Year Index, and 1% Barclays Capital Asset Backed Securites Aaa Index. Collectively, these indices are composed of U.S. securities in Treasury, government-related, corporate, and securitized sectors. The fund holds a broadly diversified collection of securities that, in the aggregate, approximates the blend of indices in terms of key characteristics. This fund is designed for investors who seek a low-cost way to invest in the short-term government bond and investment-grade credit markets and can accept the risk of price fluctuation. This is not a money market fund and its price and yield will fluctuate. 211 recap:* The fund returned approximately.44% for the fourth quarter and 3.35% for 211, nearly matching its blended benchmark (5% Barclays Capital U.S. Government Bond 1-5 Year Index, 4% Barclays Capital U.S. Credit 1-5 Year Index, and 1% Barclays Capital Asset Backed Securites Aaa Index) as expected. The returns of the fund and index were led by returns in the investment-grade and treasury sectors. Returns in both sectors were driven by continued lower yields, as the Federal Reserve kept interest rates at historic lows and investors fled to the perceived safety of U.S. debt as eurozone debt contagion fears continued to grow.

20 Fixed Income Fund Fund #562 Investment objective/approach: The fund is designed to provide a relatively stable level of interest income with low risk of losing capital. The fund invests in traditional guaranteed investment contracts (GICs) and synthetic GICs that invest in a diversified portfolio of investment-grade bonds.

As of early January 212, the fund had synthetic GICs (the Synthetic GIC Global Wrap, * made up of five diversified investment-grade bond portfolios and contracts with four wrap providers), and a money market fund to provide liquidity to participants. 211 recap: The Fixed Income Fund returned.8% for the fourth quarter and 3.49% for the year. Both returns outpaced the returns of the Ryan Labs 3-Year GIC Index. (Due to the book value nature of the Fixed Income Fund, the Ryan Labs 3-Year GIC Index has been chosen for comparison to best represent the Fixed Income Fund s higher-quality nature, duration, and return characteristics.) As of January 3, 212, the underlying annual yield on the fund was 3.1%.
