Growing Presence in US SMB Market: On June 02, 2021, XRX closed the acquisition of Southern California-based Document Systems for an undisclosed consideration. The transaction aims to strengthen XRX's position in the Small & Midsize Business (SMB) market by improving customer experience and productivity. The transaction follows the acquisition of Groupe CT in May 2021 and Digitex in March 2020.

Launching Eloque: On May 10, 2021, the company and the Government of Victoria (Australia) launched Eloque, a joint venture focused on commercializing an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology to monitor the structural health of bridges remotely. Eloque's tiny fiber optic sensors will be attached to the bridge to measure their structural strain, thermal response, loads, and corrosion, the analysis of which will be delivered to the bridge owners in real-time.

Q2FY21 Results: The company reported a sharp uptick of 22.39% in revenue to USD 1.79 billion in Q2FY21 (ended June 30, 2021) compared to USD 1.47 billion in Q2FY20, primarily due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its revenue during Q2FY20 (including the closing of businesses, restrictions imposed on office building capacity, reduction in customers' purchasing decisions, etc.). Net income for Q2FY21 was USD 91 million, significantly higher than USD 27 million in Q2FY20. XRX exited the quarter with a cash balance of USD 2.12 billion and a total debt of USD 4.24 billion.

Quarterly Revenue Trend (Source: Q2FY21 Earnings Presentation, July 27, 2021)

Key Risks: XRX generates significant revenue from contracts with US and international governments and agencies. Hence, changes in government spending, adverse political developments, funding constraints, etc., could adversely impact the company's results of operations.

In addition, XRX outsources a considerable portion of its manufacturing operations to third parties (such as Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd.). Any failure on the part of these third parties in developing appropriate manufacturing methods, responding efficiently to changes in customer demand, or obtaining materials necessary for the manufacturing process could harm the company's financials.

Vizio Holding Corp.

VZIO Details

Vizio Holding Corp. (NYSE: VZIO) is a technology company that offers Smart Televisions (TVs), soundbars and SmartCast operating systems catering to a range of different consumer price segments. It generates revenue from shipment of these devices to retailers and distributors across the United States and directly to consumers through the website. VZIO's Platform+ comprises SmartCast, a Smart TV operating system, which enables its fully integrated entertainment solution, and Inscape, which powers its data intelligence and services. VZIO's shares were listed on NYSE on March 25, 2021, at an issue price of USD 21.00 per share. As of August 27, 2021, the company's market capitalization stood at USD 3.72 billion.

Signing Key Commercial Agreements: On August 24, 2021, VZIO completed its 2022 upfront negotiations and secured advertising commitments totaling more than USD 100 million, representing a 4x increase over 2021. VZIO's commitment includes enterprise-level buys from six large agency holding companies, as well as increased investment from several key traditional TV advertising categories like automobile, insurance, and retail.

Crossing Milestones: On June 09, 2021, the company announced that it crossed 11.2 million addressable TVs (focused on enabling frame-accurate dynamic ad insertion) across the US. This follows the successful completion of various ad campaigns from the top US TV networks.

Q2FY21 Results: The company reported YoY growth of 1.96% in total revenues to USD 401.16 million in Q2FY21 (ended June 30, 2021) compared to USD 393.46 million in Q2FY20. The Device segment, which accounted for 83.67% of the total revenue in Q2FY21, reported a YoY decline of 8.52%, whereas the Platform+ segment improved by 146.50% YoY. VZIO reported a net loss of USD 14.00 million in Q2FY21 vs. a net income of USD 17.32 million in Q2FY20. As of June 30, 2021, the company had cash & cash equivalents of USD 365.38 million and no outstanding debt.

Key Risks: VZIO generates most of its Device net revenue from a limited number of retailers. Moreover, its top 4 customers accounted for 74% of its Device net revenues in H1FY21. Therefore, the loss of any of these key customers could hurt the company's financial position. In addition, revenue from the sales of smart TVs accounted for 77% of the company's net revenue in H1FY21. Hence, any unfavorable movement in demand for smart TVs products could cause a pricing pressure on the company and loss of market share, which could adversely impact its results of operations.

Outlook: In Q3FY21, VZIO expects to witness sequential growth in shipments in its Device segment, with single-digit gross margins in the coming quarters.
