Xerox Reports Flat Revenue in Q3

Xerox Reports“Our revenue this quarter was essentially flat year-over-year, despite a deterioration in global supply chain conditions and the Delta variant, which caused delays in many of our clients’ plans to return employees to the workplace,” said Xerox Vice Chairman and CEO John Visentin (pictured), commenting on the fisical results of the third quarter (Q3).

“As a result of these ongoing challenges, we are revising our revenue guidance lower, but we are maintaining our free cash flow guidance of at least $500 million. Our focus on generating cash allows us to preserve, and in some cases increase, investments in innovation, while continuing to return more than 50% of free cash to shareholders and pursue M&A,” Visentin added.

According to Xerox, some highlights regarding the results include:

  • $1.76 billion of revenue, down 0.5 percent year-over-year or down 1.6 percent in constant currency.
  • GAAP earnings per share (EPS) of $0.48, up $0.07 year-over-year, and adjusted EPS of $0.48, flat year-over-year.
  • Adjusted operating margin of 4.2 percent, down 320 basis points year-over-year.
  • $100 million of operating cash flow, down $6 million year-over-year.
  • $81 million of free cash flow, down $7 million year-over-year.
  • Reduced FY21 revenue guidance to approximately $7.1 billion in actual currency ($7.0 billion in constant currency). Reaffirmed free cash flow guidance of at least $500 million.
  • Completed expected $500 million of buybacks for 2021; Board approves an additional $500 million share repurchase program to be used opportunistically.
