Xerox Corp Stock Surges on Fujifilm Takeover Deal

Posted February 01, 2018

The new Fuji Xerox will have dual headquarters in Norwalk, CT, U.S. and in Minato, Tokyo, Japan, with presence in over 180 countries.

Once it has absorbed Xerox the company will be called "New Fuji Xerox" and will be 50.1% owned by Fujifilm. The combined company, with roughly $18 billion in revenues, will deliver at least $1.7 billion in total cost savings, with $1.2 billion to be achieved by 2020, Fujifilm and Xerox claim. Fujifilm is due to hold a news conference at 5 p.m. (0800 GMT). Fujifilm will utilize those returns to buy 50.1 percent of new Xerox shares.

The D&C adds New Fuji Xerox will use the Xerox brand in most nations and the Fuji Xerox brand in Asia and Australia.

Xerox had also been under pressure from activist shareholder Carl Icahn, the company's largest shareholder, who demanded the USA stakeholder alter or end its joint venture with Fujifilm.
