 The new Board of Directors plan to evaluate all strategic alternatives. The original 46.1 billion deal would have combined Fuji Xerox operations in Asia with Xerox's Americas and European operation. FujiFilm would have ended up with 51% of the new operation. Fujifilm has said they plan to file an objection in court to the latest developments. Also it has come to light that 25 years ago an agreement was struck that if more than 30% of Xerox was bought by an outsider certain patents would move to FujiFilm. Lot more to come.
