Xerox (NYSE: XRX) today announced its second-quarter 2017 financial results.
“We are pleased with the strong operating margins and cash flow we delivered, as well as the continued progress on our Strategic Transformation initiatives,” said Jeff Jacobson, Xerox chief executive officer. “This resulted in solid operating results despite revenue declines, which were driven by lower equipment sales as we transition to the recently launched ConnectKey portfolio.” Jacobson added, “The new product line-up has been met with enthusiasm by customers, partners and industry experts, fueling our confidence in improving revenue trends later this year and into next.”
The company delivered second-quarter 2017 GAAP earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of 63 cents, reflecting its one-for-four reverse stock split on June 14, 2017. Adjusted EPS was 87 cents, which excludes 24 cents per share of after-tax costs related to the amortization of intangibles, restructuring and related costs, and certain retirement related costs.
Revenues were $2.57 billion in the quarter, down 8.1 percent or 6.4 percent in constant currency. Post sale revenue was 79 percent of total revenue.
Second-quarter adjusted operating margin was 13.3 percent, up 0.4 percentage points from the same quarter a year ago.
Xerox generated operating cash flow of $343 million from continuing operations during the second quarter and ended the period with a cash balance of $1.25 billion. The company returned $68 million in dividends to shareholders.
