    Xerox Reports Worse-Than-Expected Q1 2024 Results, Shares Fall.
    Xerox Faces Challenging First Quarter with Drop in Profits and Sales. In its first quarter of 2024, Xerox Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: XRX) encountered a challenging period marked by a 19% decline in profits and a 12.4% drop in revenue compared to the same period in the previous year.

Net Loss: The company reported a GAAP net loss of $113 million, translating to a loss of $0.94 per share. This represents a decrease of $184 million or $1.37 per share year-over-year. The net loss includes after-tax charges related to Project Reinvention, amounting to $100 million or $0.80 per share.

    Adjusted Net Income: Xerox’s adjusted net income declined to $11 million, or $0.06 per share, down by $71 million or $0.43 per share year-over-year.

Cash Flow: Operating cash flow decreased by $157 million year-over-year, resulting in a negative cash flow of $79 million. Free cash flow also declined by $159 million, reaching $89 million in the negative.

    Strategic Changes and Confidence in Reinvention: Xerox’s CEO, Steve Bandrowczak, emphasized the company’s commitment to strategic changes aimed at aligning the organization with buyer needs and improving efficiency. Despite the Q1 results falling below expectations, Bandrowczak expressed confidence in Xerox’s team and strategy to execute the ongoing Reinvention process and achieve adjusted operating income targets.
