ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 8 -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) today announced that Durk I. Jager has decided not to stand for re-election to its Board of Directors in 2007 for personal reasons. Mr. Jager, 63, will continue to serve as a Director of Kodak until the company’s 2007 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, typically in May.

“Durk has served on Kodak’s Board with true distinction during a remarkable period in our company’s history,” said Antonio M.

We thank him for his exceptional service and look forward to continuing to benefit from his expertise during the remainder of his term.”

“Kodak is a great company. My decision has to do with my strong personal belief that I should limit my participation on any board to 10 years,” said Jager. “Although I will not stand for re-election, I will serve as a Director for the remainder of my term and will continue to work with Antonio Perez and my fellow Board members in our ongoing efforts to transform Kodak into a leading digital company.”
