"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.

The consolidated organization will keep the Fuji Xerox name and turn into an auxiliary of Fujifilm, with double base camp in the United States and Japan, and recorded in NY. The new board of directors will feature seven Fujifilm appointees and five Xerox-appointed independent directors.

As its very own component rebuilding, Fujifilm said it was cutting 10,000 employments at Fuji Xerox, more than a fifth of its workforce at the joint wander, in the Asia Pacific district.

The deal will make for a more global company, according to Simon Chan, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.

Fujifilm will own 50.1% of Xerox shares, and combine Xerox with Fuji Xerox, their joint venture in which the Japanese company already holds a 75% stake.

Xerox shares were 2.5% higher in pre-market trading on Wednesday.

On the talking whale
They eat marine mammals such as seals, sea lions, and even whales, and are known to grab seals right off the ice. Researchers have taught an orca , also known as a killer whale, to imitate human speech sounds.


The WSJ had reported earlier this month that Fujifilm and Xerox were talking about an array of possible alternatives that might or might not involve a change of control for Xerox.

Icahn and Deason cumulatively own about 15% of Xerox.

.

Icahn has previously said that Jacobson, chairman Bob Keegan and other "old guard" members of the Xerox board have failed to recognize that further change is needed. The targeted cost savings represent approximately 10% of the total cost base of the new Fuji Xerox and will drive significant margin expansion over the next four years. "I would think that would be a big positive for Fuji". The pair had been pushing for Xerox to explore "strategic options", fire the CEO and negotiate a better deal with Fujifilm.

The story in the Wall Street Journal says the deal would see US shareholders own just under half of the new entity.

"In the areas they're in, scale matters a lot".
