|Item 8.01.|| |
On March 6, 2019, Registrants Board of Directors approved a reorganization (the Reorganization) of Registrants corporate structure into a holding company structure, pursuant to which the Registrant will become a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of a new holding company. The purpose of the Reorganization is to provide the Registrant with strategic, operational and financial flexibility. The business operations, directors and executive officers of the Registrant will not change as a result of the Reorganization.
The Reorganization is intended to be implemented via a tax-free transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes that will result in each holder of Registrants common stock owning the same number of shares of common stock in the new holding company and each holder of Registrants preferred stock owning the same number of shares of preferred stock in the new holding company. It is expected that the directors and executive officers of Registrant will also serve in the same capacities for the new holding company and that shares of the new holding companys common stock will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under Registrants current ticker symbol XRX.
The Reorganization is subject to shareholder approval, regulatory approval and other customary conditions and is expected to be implemented in mid-2019, though there can be no assurance as to its completion or timing.
Additional details and information regarding the Reorganization will be included in a joint proxy statement/prospectus relating to Registrants 2019 annual meeting of shareholders, which will be mailed to shareholders when available.
