UPDATE 1-Xerox fourth-quarter results meets Street, keeps 2013 outlook
Jan 24 (Reuters) - Xerox Corp reported fourth-quarter revenue and earnings in line with expectations on Thursday and reiterated its full- year targets as it restructures parts its business.
Revenue was flat at $5.9 billion and earnings per share, excluding items, were 30 cents.
For the first three month of 2013, Xerox expects earnings to be in a range of 23 cents to 25 cents per share. Analysts looked for 24 cents in the first quarter, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
The company reiterated its full-year EPS target of $1.09 to $1.15 and forecast operating cash flow of $2.1 billion to $2.4 billion.
Xerox, which has its roots in the copier and printer business, said quarterly revenue from its services business was up 7 percent.
Xerox generates more than half of its revenue from its services businesses after its acquisition of Affiliated Computer Services Inc for $5.5 billion in 2009.
Revenue from the document technology business, which includes document systems, supplies, technical services and financing of products, was down 8 percent due to difficult economic and market conditions, Xerox said.
