Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions (see General Instruction A.2. below):
On September 27, 2009, Xerox Corporation (Xerox) entered into a debt commitment letter pursuant to which JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. committed to provide to Xerox unsecured bridge financing of up to $3.0 billion in connection with the acquisition of Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (ACS). On December 4, 2009, the debt commitment of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. under this commitment letter was reduced to $500 million. On January 8, 2010, the amount of the remaining commitment was further reduced to $0 at the election of Xerox because Xerox has sufficient cash on hand and availability under its existing revolving credit facilities to complete the ACS acquisition, and the debt commitment letter was terminated.
Termination of the debt commitment letter effectively satisfies the condition precedent to the closing of the ACS acquisition relating to the availability of the debt financing.
