Google, Samsung and Microsoft Named As Possible Kodak Buyers

Kodak-for-sale.jpgWe reported not too long ago that Kodak had adopted a new strategy to ensure that they didn't get bought out. The stock increase will certainly make the company harder to buy, there's nothing preventing a company with enough money from swooping in and nabbing up Kodak and its incredibly valuable patents.

Just how valuable? Apparently the patents may be worth up to five times more than the company itself. That gives companies a lot of incentive to pick up Kodak, despite its lack of performance in terms of sales and market penetration.

A few companies have been named by analysts as potential buyers, namely Samsung and Microsoft. Google has also been called out as a possibility, but that's just standard. Google has enough money on hand to buy whatever they want and you never know what they'll be snapping up next.
