Fuji Xerox NZ slumps to $15m loss

Volatile exchange rates challenge digital imaging giant.

The global financial crisis has driven Fuji Xerox New Zealand deep into the red in its 2009 financial year. According to financial reports held by the Company’s Office, Fuji Xerox’s combined operations in New Zealand, across its trading and finance companies, lost $15.6 million for the year ended 31 March 2008.

Duffy says sales were almost the same in value over the two years.
