TOKYO, April 27 (Reuters) - Fujifilm Holdings Corp and Xerox Corp have reopened talks about their $6.1-billion merger agreement, a Fujifilm spokeswoman said, confirming what sources in the United States had told Reuters on Thursday.
“It is true that we have received a request for a renegotiation from Xerox,” the camera and photocopier firm said in a statement. On Friday, the spokeswoman said this meant the firms had reopened talks on deal terms and conditions.
Xerox Chairman Robert Keegan told a New York state court the two had reopened talks, sources had told Reuters. (Reporting by Makiko Yamazaki Writing by William Mallard Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
