Xerox sells Fujifilm stake for $2.3 billion

November 5, 2019

Xerox and Fujifilm end 57-year partnership as last year’s merger fell through.

Xerox will sell its twenty five percent stake in the Fuji Xerox venture and receive $2.3billion (€2.06 billion) and secure sourcing terms for future product programs that will ensure Xerox’s product supply continuity;

Xerox will also sell its 51 percent stake in Xerox International Partners (XIP), an OEM joint venture between Xerox and FX, which, together with the grant of a new IP license, will allow FX to OEM certain products (such as printer engines) to named parties that are existing customers of XIP on a worldwide basis in exchange for a fixed royalty.

The $1 billion (€0.89 billion) Fujifilm lawsuit against Xerox for reneging on the deal to merge the two companies will be dismissed.

Exiting the Fuji Xerox partnership and ending the legal action leaves Xerox open to pursue accretive M&A in core and adjacent industries, return capital to shareholders and pay down its $550 million (€493.9 million) December 2019 debt maturity.

Industry rumours suggest a strengthening of the recent tie up with HP and/or possibly a tie up with another OEM.

“These agreements reset our relationship with FUJIFILM and provide both companies with tremendous opportunities to grow, together and independently,” said John Visentin, Vice Chairman and CEO of Xerox. “These agreements also unlock significant unrealized value for our shareholders, provide greater clarity for our customers and help us speed our transformation to a digital-first company.”

The agreements were unanimously approved by the board of directors of Xerox and do not require a shareholder vote but are subject to regulatory approval in Japan.
