2024 Guidance

  • Revenue: decline of 3% to 5% in constant currency
  • Adjusted Operating Margin: at least 7.5%
  • Free cash flow: at least $600 million

Guidance assumes stable Print demand, growth in Digital and IT Services and neutral macroeconomic conditions. The guided year-over-year decline in revenue is attributable to the following: around 200 basis points of headwind from prior-year backlog reduction and around 200 basis points from the deemphasis of certain non-strategic revenue, including lower sales of paper. Margin guidance implies adjusted1 operating income margin improvement of more than 190 basis points, and adjusted1 operating income improvement of more than $100 million, year-over-year.

The company maintains its three-year target of $300 million of incremental adjusted1 operating income above 2023 levels and a return to double-digit adjusted1 operating income margin by 2026.

Non-GAAP Measures

This release refers to the following non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Adjusted1 Gross Profit and Margin, which exclude the inventory impact related to the exit of certain Production Print manufacturing operations, included in Cost of services, maintenance and rentals.
  • Adjusted1 EPS, which excludes Restructuring and related costs, net, Amortization of intangible assets, non-service retirement-related costs, and other discrete adjustments from GAAP EPS, as applicable.
  • Adjusted1 operating income and margin, which exclude the EPS adjustments noted above as well as the remainder of Other expenses, net from pre-tax (loss) income and margin.
  • Constant currency (CC)1 revenue change, which excludes the effects of currency translation.
  • Free cash flow1, which is operating cash flow less capital expenditures.

A reconciliation of the estimated adjusted1 operating income expected to be delivered by the Reinvention to the closest GAAP financial measure, pre-tax income, is not provided because pre-tax income for those periods is not available without unreasonable effort, in part because the amount of estimated restructuring and other incremental costs related to the Reinvention is not available at this time.

First Quarter 2024 Overview

In the first quarter of 2024, Xerox implemented a comprehensive organizational redesign, marking an important milestone in the Company's multi-year journey to build a stronger, more stable business that is operationally efficient and responsive to the evolving workplace needs of our clients. During the quarter, we took initial actions to unlock savings associated with a simplified product offering and global routes to market, including the decision to exit certain Production Print manufacturing operations and sell, or agree to sell, direct operations in four Latin American countries.

Equipment sales of $290 million in the first quarter 2024 declined 25.8% in actual currency, or 26.3% in constant currency1, as compared to the first quarter 2023. The prior year effect of backlog2 reduction and geographic simplification drove a 16-percentage point year-over-year decline. Total equipment revenue outpaced equipment installation activity, due to favorable product mix. Installations declined across all product groups primarily due to prior year backlog2 reductions. Post-sale revenue of $1.2 billion declined 8.5% in actual currency, or 9.3% in constant currency1, as compared to first quarter 2023. The decline was primarily due to reductions in non-strategic, lower margin paper and IT endpoint device placements, as well as the effects of geographic simplification, the termination of the Fuji Royalty and the absence of PARC revenue. Excluding these effects, post sale revenue decreased low-single digits in actual currency.

The pre-tax (loss) of $(150) million for the first quarter 2024 decreased by $235 million as compared to pre-tax income of $85 million in the first quarter 2023, primarily due to lower revenues and associated gross profit, a loss related to the divestiture of certain direct business operations in Latin America, higher Restructuring and related costs, net and Other expenses, net, partially offset by lower Research, development and engineering expenses as well as lower Selling, administrative and general expenses, reflecting structural actions taken to improve our cost structure. Adjusted1 operating income decreased $85 million as compared to first quarter 2023 due to lower equipment and post sale revenue, including the termination of Fuji royalty income and PARC revenue, lower gross profit and higher bad debt expense, which primarily related to a reserve release in the prior year period. These impacts were partially offset by the cost savings associated with structural simplification efforts.

We continue to expect a total Revenue decline of 3% to 5% in constant currency1 in 2024, which includes effects of prior year backlog2 reductions and the exit of non-strategic businesses. Core business revenue is expected to be roughly flat year-over-year, reflecting stable Print demand, growth in Digital and IT Services and neutral macroeconomic conditions.

We expect 2024 pre-tax income and adjusted1 operating income margins to improve in 2024 to approximately 5.1% and at least 7.5%, respectively. These increases will primarily be driven by structural simplification actions enabled by our reorganization, including the effects of the workforce reduction decisions announced in January 2024.

Free cash flow1 is expected to be at least $600 million in 2024 (includes $50 million for capital expenditures). Free cash flow1 is expected to benefit from a reduction in our finance receivables balance.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release and other written or oral statements made from time to time by management contain “forward looking statements” as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The words “anticipate”, “believe”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intend”, “will”, “should”, “targeting”, “projecting”, “driving” and similar expressions, as they relate to us, our performance and/or our technology, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements reflect management’s current beliefs, assumptions and expectations and are subject to a number of factors that may cause actual results to differ materially. Such factors include but are not limited to: Global macroeconomic conditions, including inflation, slower growth or recession, delays or disruptions in the global supply chain, higher interest rates, and wars and other conflicts, including the current conflict between Russia and Ukraine; our ability to succeed in a competitive environment, including by developing new products and service offerings and preserving our existing products and market share as well as repositioning our business in the face of customer preference, technological, and other change, such as evolving return-to-office and hybrid working trends; failure of our customers, vendors, and logistics partners to perform their contractual obligations to us; our ability to attract, train, and retain key personnel; execution risks around our Reinvention; the risk of breaches of our security systems due to cyber, malware, or other intentional attacks that could expose us to liability, litigation, regulatory action or damage our reputation; our ability to obtain adequate pricing for our products and services and to maintain and improve our cost structure; changes in economic and political conditions, trade protection measures, licensing requirements, and tax laws in the United States and in the foreign countries in which we do business; the risk that multi-year contracts with governmental entities could be terminated prior to the end of the contract term and that civil or criminal penalties and administrative sanctions could be imposed on us if we fail to comply with the terms of such contracts and applicable law; interest rates, cost of borrowing, and access to credit markets; risks related to our indebtedness; the imposition of new or incremental trade protection measures such as tariffs and import or export restrictions; funding requirements associated with our employee pension and retiree health benefit plans; changes in foreign currency exchange rates; the risk that our operations and products may not comply with applicable worldwide regulatory requirements, particularly environmental regulations and directives and anti-corruption laws; the outcome of litigation and regulatory proceedings to which we may be a party; laws, regulations, international agreements and other initiatives to limit greenhouse gas emissions or relating to climate change, as well as the physical effects of climate change; and other factors as set forth from time to time in the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023. The Company intends these forward-looking statements to speak only as of the date of this release and does not undertake to update or revise them as more information becomes available, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have reported our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In addition, we have discussed our financial results using the non-GAAP measures described below. We believe these non-GAAP measures allow investors to better understand the trends in our business and to better understand and compare our results. Management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Compensation of our executives is based in part on the performance of our business based on these non-GAAP measures. Accordingly, we believe it is necessary to adjust several reported amounts, determined in accordance with GAAP, to exclude the effects of certain items as well as their related income tax effects.

However, these non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP are set forth below, as well as in the first quarter 2024 presentation slides available at www.xerox.com/investor.

Adjusted Earnings Measures

  • Adjusted Net Income and Earnings per share (Adjusted EPS)
  • Adjusted Effective Tax Rate

The above measures were adjusted for the following items:

Restructuring and related costs, net: Restructuring and related costs, net include restructuring and asset impairment charges as well as costs associated with our transformation programs beyond those normally included in restructuring and asset impairment charges. Restructuring consists of costs primarily related to severance and benefits paid to employees pursuant to formal restructuring and workforce reduction plans. Asset impairment includes costs incurred for those assets sold, abandoned or made obsolete as a result of our restructuring actions, exiting from a business or other strategic business changes. Additional costs for our transformation programs are primarily related to the implementation of strategic actions and initiatives and include third-party professional service costs as well as one-time incremental costs. All of these costs can vary significantly in terms of amount and frequency based on the nature of the actions as well as the changing needs of the business. Accordingly, due to that significant variability, we will exclude these charges since we do not believe they provide meaningful insight into our current or past operating performance nor do we believe they are reflective of our expected future operating expenses as such charges are expected to yield future benefits and savings with respect to our operational performance.

Amortization of intangible assets: The amortization of intangible assets is driven by our acquisition activity which can vary in size, nature and timing as compared to other companies within our industry and from period to period. The use of intangible assets contributed to our revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to our future period revenues as well. Amortization of intangible assets will recur in future periods.

Non-service retirement-related costs: Our defined benefit pension and retiree health costs include several elements impacted by changes in plan assets and obligations that are primarily driven by changes in the debt and equity markets as well as those that are predominantly legacy in nature and related to employees who are no longer providing current service to the Company (e.g. retirees and ex-employees). These elements include (i) interest cost, (ii) expected return on plan assets, (iii) amortization of prior plan amendments, (iv) amortized actuarial gains/losses and (v) the impacts of any plan settlements/curtailments. Accordingly, we consider these elements of our periodic retirement plan costs to be outside the operational performance of the business or legacy costs and not necessarily indicative of current or future cash flow requirements. This approach is consistent with the classification of these costs as non-operating in Other expenses, net. Adjusted earnings will continue to include the service cost elements of our retirement costs, which is related to current employee service as well as the cost of our defined contribution plans.

Discrete, unusual or infrequent items: We exclude these item(s), when applicable, given their discrete, unusual or infrequent nature and their impact on the comparability of our results for the period to prior periods and future expected trends:

  • Inventory impact related to the exit of certain Production Print manufacturing operations
  • Divestitures
  • Gain on early extinguishment of debt

Adjusted Operating Income and Margin

We calculate and utilize adjusted operating income and margin measures by adjusting our reported pre-tax (loss) income and margin amounts. In addition to the costs and expenses noted as adjustments for our adjusted earnings measures, adjusted operating income and margin also exclude the remaining amounts included in Other expenses, net, which are primarily non-financing interest expense and certain other non-operating costs and expenses. We exclude these amounts in order to evaluate our current and past operating performance and to better understand the expected future trends in our business.

Adjusted Gross Profit and Margin

We calculate non-GAAP gross Profit and Margin by excluding the inventory impact related to the exit of certain Production Print manufacturing operations, included in Cost of services, maintenance and rentals.

Constant Currency (CC)

To better understand trends in our business, we believe that it is helpful to adjust revenue to exclude the impact of changes in the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. We refer to this adjusted revenue as “constant currency.” This impact is calculated by translating current period activity in local currency using the comparable prior year period's currency translation rate. This impact is calculated for all countries where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. Management believes the constant currency measure provides investors an additional perspective on revenue trends. Currency impact can be determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant currency growth rates.

Free Cash Flow

To better understand trends in our business, we believe that it is helpful to adjust operating cash flows by subtracting amounts related to capital expenditures. Management believes this measure gives investors an additional perspective on cash flow from operating activities in excess of amounts required for reinvestment. It provides a measure of our ability to fund acquisitions, dividends and share repurchase.

APPENDIX II

Xerox Holdings Corporation

Reportable Segments

Our reportable segments are aligned with how we manage the business and view the markets we serve. We have two reportable segments - Print and Other, and Xerox Financial Services (XFS) (formerly FITTLE). Our two reportable segments are determined based on the information reviewed by the Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM), our Chief Executive Officer (CEO), together with the Company’s management to evaluate performance of the business and allocate resources.

Our Print and Other segment includes the sale of document systems, supplies and technical services and managed services. The segment also includes the delivery of managed services that involve a continuum of solutions and services that help our customers optimize their print and communications infrastructure, apply automation and simplification to maximize productivity, and ensure the highest levels of security. This segment also includes Digital and IT services and software. The product groupings range from:

  • “Entry”, which include A4 devices and desktop printers and multifunction devices that primarily serve small and medium workgroups/work teams.
  • “Mid-Range”, which include A3 devices that generally serve large workgroup/work team environments as well as products in the Light Production product groups serving centralized print centers, print for pay and low volume production print establishments.
  • “High-End”, which include production printing and publishing systems that generally serve the graphic communications marketplace and print centers in large enterprises.

Customers range from small and mid-sized businesses to large enterprises. Customers also include graphic communication enterprises as well as channel partners including distributors and resellers. Segment revenues also include commissions and other payments from our XFS segment for the exclusive right to provide lease financing for Xerox products. These revenues are reported as part of Intersegment Revenues, which are eliminated in consolidated revenues.

The XFS segment provides global leasing solutions and currently offers financing for direct channel customer purchases of Xerox equipment through bundled lease agreements and lease financing to end-user customers who purchase Xerox solutions through our indirect channels. Segment revenues primarily include financing income on sales-type leases (including month-to-month extensions) and leasing fees. Segment revenues also include gains/losses from the sale of finance receivables including commissions, fees on the sales of underlying equipment residuals, and servicing fees.
