Xerox and Carl C. Icahn have entered into an agreement related to the governance of the Business Process Outsourcing (“BPO”) company that will be created as a result of the planned separation of Xerox into two independent, publicly-traded companies.

Under the agreement, when the separation is complete, the BPO company will have certain best-in-class corporate governance provisions and a Board of Directors composed of nine members: six directors selected by Xerox (two of whom may come from the current Xerox Board of Directors) and three directors selected by Icahn. In addition, in connection with the planned separation, Xerox agreed that a committee of its Board of Directors will begin searching for an external candidate to be Chief Executive Officer of the BPO company and to allow a person selected by Icahn to observe and advise the committee in that search process. Additional details regarding the agreement will be included in a Form 8-K to be filed by Xerox later today.

“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Icahn that ensures that we will have strong leadership and best-in-class governance for the new Business Process Outsourcing company that will be created by our separation plan,” said Ursula Burns, chairman and chief executive officer of Xerox.

Icahn said: “We applaud Ursula Burns and Xerox’s Board of Directors for recognizing the importance of separating Xerox into two publicly-traded companies. We strongly believe that an independent BPO company with fresh, focused leadership and best-in-class corporate governance will greatly enhance shareholder value, and we are proud to be a part of that process.”
