Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today announced that it has priced $1.0 billion of 3.625% Senior Unsecured Notes due in 2023. The offering is expected to close on Sept. 11, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions.
Net proceeds from the offering will be used by Xerox for general corporate purposes, including to make a $500 million voluntary cash contribution to its U.S. defined benefit pension plans and to refinance a portion of its 6.35% Senior Notes due May 2018.
The $500 million pension funding will significantly reduce mandatory cash contributions to U.S. plans in future years beginning 2018 and is incremental to the $350 million of global pension contributions planned in 2017.
In addition, the Company is updating its full year 2017 cash flow from operations guidance to reflect the additional pension contribution. Guidance for operating cash flow from continuing operations was $700 to $900 million, the updated guidance, to reflect the $500 million incremental pension contribution, is $200 to $400 million. The Company’s ending cash target remains unchanged at $1 billion.
BNP Paribas, BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and J.P. Morgan are the joint lead book-running managers for the offering.
