Xerox Holdings Corporation (NYSE: XRX) (“Xerox”) today sent a letter to the Board of Directors of HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ) (“HP”) confirming that it has obtained $24 billion in binding financing commitments from Citi, Mizuho and Bank of America to complete its value-creating combination with HP.

The full text of the letter is as follows:

Dear Chip and Enrique,

Over the last several weeks, we have engaged in constructive dialogue with many of your largest shareholders regarding the strategic benefits of our proposal to acquire HP. It remains clear to all of us that bringing our companies together would deliver substantial synergies and meaningfully enhanced cash flow that could, in turn, enable increased investments in innovation and greater returns to shareholders.

But it also became clear from our dialogue with your shareholders that you and your advisors have been questioning our ability to raise the capital necessary to finance our proposal. We have always maintained that our proposal is not subject to a financing contingency, but in order to remove any doubt, we have obtained binding financing commitments (that are not subject to any due diligence condition) from Citi, Mizuho and Bank of America.

My offer stands to meet with you in person, with or without your advisors, to begin negotiating this transaction.

Sincerely,

John Visentin
Vice Chairman and CEO
Xerox Holdings Corporation
