The Norwalk, Conn.-based document technology and IT services company experienced the biggest rank drop on this year’s Fortune 500, plummeting 129 spots to No. 291, and was weighed down by a 40.1% dip in revenue due in part to a continued decline in office printing and copying. At the end of fiscal year 2017, Xerox sought to gain scale and cut costs by agreeing to a takeover by Fujifilm. But in early 2018, pressure from activist investors Carl Icahn and Darwin Deason scuttled the deal that would have handed control of the 112-year-old printing pioneer to the Japanese company.
