Xerox Corp.: Xerox International Partners and Fuji Xerox Align with Dell to Expand Imaging and Printing Marketplace

LAS VEGAS--()--



Partnership Highlights Fuji Xerox Leadership in Imaging and Printing Technology

Xerox International Partners, a majority-owned subsidiary of Xerox
Corporation (NYSE: XRX), Fuji Xerox Co. Ltd., and Dell Inc. have
entered into an agreement that will leverage Fuji Xerox's imaging
technology and expertise and accelerate the growth of Dell's printing
and imaging business. Through Xerox Corporation's ownership stakes in
both XIP and Fuji Xerox, this agreement with Dell creates additional
revenue-generating opportunities for Xerox and broadens its market
reach by providing new choices to more customers worldwide.

Under the agreement, Fuji Xerox will build on its strong patent portfolio, which
is shared with Xerox Corporation, and manufacturing capabilities to provide
world-class technology based on Dell's strategy and specifications. Dell will
acquire the products through Xerox International Partners, a U.S.-based joint
venture between Fuji Xerox Co. Ltd. and Xerox Corporation. XIP offers digital
marking engines, including printers and other document imaging systems, for
resale under other companies' brand names.

Dell Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Dell announced the technology
agreement today during a presentation at the 2004 International Consumer
Electronics Show.

"Dell's new relationship with Fuji Xerox and XIP provides access to a heritage
of world-class technology that will fuel the continued expansion of our printing
and imaging business," said Tim Peters, vice president and general manager, Dell
Imaging and Printing. "Fuji Xerox is known for innovation and leadership and
will contribute significantly to Dell's goal of providing a superior customer
experience."

Sunil Gupta, XIP president and chief executive officer, said the agreement will
help deliver alternatives to customers and provide new revenue and market
opportunities.

"This agreement will change the competitive landscape. Xerox and Fuji Xerox
together hold one of the strongest and most enviable intellectual property and
patent portfolios in the imaging industry," said Gupta. "Combining our expertise
with Dell's complements Xerox's growth strategy to expand market coverage and
broaden access to industry-leading imaging technology."

Xerox operates research and technology centers in the United States, Canada and
Europe. Its work is strategically coordinated with that of Fuji Xerox, which has
research labs in Japan and the United States. Xerox and Fuji Xerox have
consistently rated among the world's top technology innovators, together earning
nearly 800 U.S. patents in 2003.

Details of the partnership agreement with Dell were not released nor were the
