Xerox Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 22, 2014, Xerox Corporation (Xerox) announced its Q1 2014 financial results. The Company's total revenues declined 1.6% YoY to $5.1 billion, mainly due to a 4% fall in revenues from its Document Technology business, which contributed 40% of total revenues. Revenue from the company's Services business, which represented 57% of total revenue, was $2.9 billion, flat year over year. Net income attributable to Xerox declined to $281 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, from $296 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in Q1 2013. "Good profitability in Document Technology along with strength in document outsourcing and in commercial outsourcing services contributed positively to our results," said Ursula Burns, Xerox Chairman and CEO. "But these gains were offset by higher-than-anticipated investments in our government healthcare business as we implement new Medicaid and health insurance exchange platforms."
