Xerox Lays Out Its Goals For 2019

About this time last year the future for Xerox seemed set. A $6.1 billion deal with Fujifilm was announced by then-CEO Jeff Jacobson, under which Xerox would inherit all of Fuji Xerox, the 60-year- old Asian arm of its copier empire, but cede overall control to Tokyo.
