ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) -- Eastman Kodak Co. says it will list its common shares on the New York Stock Exchange and begin trading Friday as the company's recovery continues.

The Rochester, N.Y., photography and film pioneer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2012 after failing to cope with economic, industry and competitive challenges. It has since shed its debt, sold off assets and is trying to make a comeback as a smaller company focused on commercial and packaging printing.

Eastman Kodak's stock was canceled in September as it emerged from bankruptcy. The company issued new shares that have been trading over the counter. Its stock will move to the New York Stock Exchange and trade under the symbol "KODK".
