Law Office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces Investigation on Behalf of Shareholders of Affiliated Computer Services, Inc.

BALA CYNWYD, Pa. -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims of breach of fiduciary duty against the Board of Directors of Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. ("ACS" or the "Company") (NYSE:ACS - News) related to the announced plan of merger of ACS with Xerox Corporation ("Xerox") (NYSE:XRX - News) and Boulder Acquisition Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Xerox.

Under the terms of the proposed merger agreement, ACS shareholders will receive $18.60 in cash and 4.935 shares of Xerox for every share of ACS they own. Based on the closing price of Xerox on September 25, 2009, this would amount to approximately $63.11 per share and a transaction value of $6.4 billion. Since the announcement of the merger, however, Xerox stock has dropped more than 15%, lowering the expected return to ACS shareholders to approximately $55.55 per share. Significantly, ACS stock has traded above $51 per share as recently as April 2009. Additionally, review of the merger agreement reveals that the ACS Board of Directors agreed to a no-solicitation provision once the agreement was signed.

If you are an ACS shareholder and wish to discuss the legal ramifications of the Board's actions, you may e-mail or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.
