With more than 6,000 employees worldwide and conducting business in
nearly every country in the world, Carestream is an independent provider
of medical imaging systems and healthcare IT solutions; X-ray imaging

services for a wide range of industrial, medical, electronic and other

"Our focus will be on delivering innovation that is life-changing—for
patients, customers, employees, communities and other stakeholders—and
we will grow our business for long-term success," said Mr. Westgate. "We
are very excited about pursuing new product development road maps that
will position us to meet the diverse needs of our customers in the
markets we will serve. Customer satisfaction, continuous innovation and
operational excellence will be fundamental to our culture and we are
committed to being the very best at what we do."

Mr. Westgate previously served as CEO of Jason Industries, Inc., where
he led successful efforts to diversify the company's portfolio while
emphasizing a culture of growth and innovation. Under his leadership,
Jason Industries experienced tremendous increases in both revenue and
earnings, and accelerated growth through acquisitions, geographic
diversification, performance improvements and a focus on developing
breakthrough innovations.

"Dave has an impressive record of success in corporate leadership roles
and his vision for Carestream is clear: move the company toward
long-term growth and market leadership, and drive continuous innovation
across the company's broad portfolio of products," said Robert Le Blanc,
a Senior Managing Director of Onex Corporation.

Mr. Westgate replaces Kevin Hobert who had decided to leave the company
and will assist with the transition. "Kevin Hobert has done an excellent
job leading Carestream's development into a worldwide leader in the
medical and dental imaging fields, and has prepared the company for
sustainable growth in the coming years. I would like to thank Kevin for
the many significant contributions he has made to Carestream's success
since launching the company more than 11 years ago," said Mr. Le Blanc.
