Christopher Veronda, spokesman for Kodak, said the company's "overall philosophy is to provide a compensation package that motivates and rewards desired performance and aligns the interests of our executives with that of our shareholders."

Kodak has cut global staff to 18,800 from a peak of 145,300 in 1988, and its headquarter jobs in Rochester, N.Y. to 7,100 from 60,400 in 1982, according to the Associated Press.

Veronda added that Kodak had major divestitures, including its health group and space systems division, which together had almost 20,000 jobs.

"We have also outsourced some services that employ hundreds of other with their new operator," he said. "So you have to look beyond the raw numbers, though there certainly have been job cuts as our film business shrank considerably. "
