Citing serious allegations, officials with the federal government say a massive $765 million deal is on hold until further notice.

“On July 28, we signed a Letter of Interest with Eastman Kodak. Recent allegations of wrongdoing raise serious concerns. We will not proceed any further unless these allegations are cleared,” DFC said on Twitter.
