Carl Icahn's Open Letter to Xerox Shareholders Introducing John Visentin

Investor finds consultant to find strategic alternative for Xerox

March 14, 2018 | About:

New York, New York, March 14, 2018 – Today Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio) released the following open letter to shareholders of Xerox Corporation (NYSE:XRX):

Fellow Shareholders:

I am pleased to announce that we have engaged John Visentin as a consultant both in connection with the upcoming proxy contests and to explore strategic alternatives for Xerox on our behalf.

John is a highly-in-demand operating executive with a superb track record, specifically when it comes to revamping complex operations with prior managerial shortcomings in the IT services industry to consistently drive profitable growth. He previously managed multi-billion dollar business units as a senior executive at each of Hewlett-Packard and IBM and most recently drove successful transformations for Apollo Global Management portfolio companies Novitex Enterprises Solutions (where he was Executive Chairman and CEO) and Presidio (where he was Chairman).

We believe John has the ideal skill set to help us show shareholders why the proposed Fuji scheme makes no sense and how there is tremendous value potential in a stand-alone Xerox with new management. John will be intimately involved in our outreach over the next few weeks and months as we, together with Darwin Deason and his team, explain our strategy to maximize shareholder value at Xerox.

We look forward to further introducing you to John.

Sincerely yours,

Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio)
