"New Fuji Xerox will benefit not only from its size but also from its solid management resources, including strong brands, state-of-the-art technologies and excellent human resources", Fujifilm said in a statement.

Xerox owns the other 25% of the business.

Reuters reported that Fujifilm has already announced layoffs of around 10,000 among its Asia-Pacific staff.

They say the objective of the restructuring is to reorganize operations and streamline manufacturing bases. Within four years, Xerox's share of the USA copier market dropped from almost 100 percent to less than 14 percent.

Xerox has agreed to a $6.1bn takeover bid from JapanĀ“s Fujifilm, just as fourth-quarter results provided evidence that its transformation strategy was making headway.

The two companies will combine by Fuji Xerox becoming a 100% subsidiary of Xerox.

Eli Lilly reaffirmed fiscal 2018 revenues in the range of $23 billion to $23.5 billion but lifted diluted earnings per share in the range of $4.39 to $4.49 from the earlier estimate of $4.24 to $4.34.

Xerox announced Wednesday that it would be acquired by the Japanese corporation Fujifilm in a $6.1 billion deal.

Xerox has long since been pressed to find new sources of growth as its copier business struggled with the advent of email, and digital sharing services such as Dropbox have lessened the demand for copying and printing. Fujifilm will then use those proceeds to purchase 50.1% of new Xerox shares.

Combination of R&D, acquirement and different operations would empower Fuji Xerox to convey at any rate $1.7 billion (generally Rs. 10,807 crores) in complete cost reserve funds by 2022, the two organizations said. Fuji Xerox had over 47,000 employees as of March 2017, according to its website, meaning the job cuts would likely slash its workforce by more than a fifth.

"This transaction.offers substantial upside for shareholders of the combined companies, including current shareholders of Xerox and Fujifilm Holdings, who will own shares in a more competitive company that has enhanced opportunities for long-term growth and margin expansion", Jacobson said in a pre-recorded video message.

Net income in the quarter surged 92% to $3.1 billion or $5.18 per diluted share from $1.6 billion or $2.59 in the same quarter a year ago.

With a large focus on cost savings, the new company will establish a cost reduction program, commencing immediately at the existing Fuji Xerox joint venture.
