Xerox's bank debt saw a flurry of activity last week, surging roughly five points. One trader said the company's stronger earnings, spearheaded by $611 million in operating cash flow for the third quarter, caused the rally. Traders noted that the company's revolver was trading in the 71-73 range and its "A" term loan in the 83-85 range. Xerox's "B" piece was quoted in the mid-90s, according to LoanX.
News that Xerox had secured an eight-year agreement with General Electric also gave its bank debt a boost. The agreement provides that GE Vendor Financial Services would become the primary equipment financier for Xerox customers. In turn, Xerox secured an additional $5 billion of funding over the life of the agreement. Calls to Xerox were not returned by press time.
