How can today’s commercial printers bridge the physical and digital worlds through innovative solutions in printing technology, workflow software and personalization? The answers will be on display at the Xerox booth at PRINT 17. “Xerox is focused on innovations that give our customers the tools they need to grow their business and succeed in the competitive graphic communications market,” said Andrew Copley, president, Graphic Communications Solutions, Xerox. “With the speed and enhanced inline finishing capabilities of the new Versant® 3100, businesses can lower costs and turn around jobs faster; with our latest ink innovations, they can save substantially by printing directly from inkjet to offset coated stocks; and with brilliant highlights of white, dry ink they can deliver exceptional marketing materials. What attendees see at PRINT 17 from Xerox sets us apart from the competition.”

“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. “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.”
