    XEROX CUTS 2,500 U.S. JOBS SO IT CAN OUTSOURCE TO INDIA
    NEW YORK — Xerox says it will cut 2,500 jobs as it takes advantage of cost-saving opportunities from its $6 billion acquisition this year of of outsourcer Affiliated Computer Services.The cuts would amount to about 2 percent of the company’s 133,000 total work force.The move comes as Xerox is reporting that it doubled its profit in the third quarter, helped by surging demand for its copying equipment and growth in service contracts.It earned $250 million, or 17 cents a share, for the quarter, compared with $123 million, or 14 cents a share, a year ago.Revenue rose 48 percent to $5.43 billion, helped mainly by the acquisition of ACS. Had results from ACS been included in last year’s third quarter, revenue this year would show a 2 percent increase.

    NEW YORK  – Xerox said Thursday it doubled its profit in the third quarter, helped by surging demand for its copying equipment and double-digit growth in service contracts.The company also continued to benefit from its $6 billion acquisition of outsourcer Affiliated Computer Services, which was completed in February.

    Signings for service contracts jumped 26 percent.
    Xerox has been transforming itself through its ACS acquisition, taking advantage of the trend by companies to spend more on technology as the economy slowly recovers. Other tech companies, such as IBM Corp., have been similarly shifting their focus toward services.The Norwalk, Conn., company says that based on its momentum, it’s raising its outlook for both this year and 2011. It also says it expects 2010 restructuring charges to come in $120 million above its prior estimates.
