Re: Xerox explores sale of leasing finance unit: sources

Oce did that 10 years ago and went bust. They didn't realise how much they relied on the monthly rental income and how inflexible third party leasing companies are when you want to upgrade mid term. The financing arm is usually the most profitable side of the business. High interest rate to customers, low rates for them and if the customer goes bust you generally get you equipment back and at the end of the contract you get your gear back.

Do you think Icahn and Deason are in it for the long-term? Or is this a corporate takeover to temporarily raise the stock price and cash out on their investment?

Job well done to make $23 million US dollars. How many lost employees did it take to make that happen? I don;t know how many Xerox copiers were manufactured in 2018. Could it have been 100K? If so John V made $280 on every unit sold. Not a bad gig

I’m sure the engines are probably ok but dropping their formatters and drivers on top have allot of teething issues. In HP world they have a 49.xx error which is generic formatter/driver issue. I know a few dealers have dropped them and gone back to their original brands because of the high labour costs. It’s all very new technology I’m sure they will get it right after a few more generations

As one of the top 10 HP dealers in the country it has been our experience that the HPs (Both Pagewides and the Samsung engines) have run well. We have been an HP Dealer for several years now and we have seen no evidence of a high failure rate. In fact just the opposite has been true.

Not to mention HP will eventually buy the entire Xerox business, as soon as carl gets all the operating cost lower. Xerox is working on a strategy to sell.
