KAPLAN FOX & KILSHEIMER LLP FILES SECURITIES
FRAUD CLASS ACTION AGAINST XEROX CORPORATION.

NEW YORK - Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP ( www.KaplanFox.com ) has filed a Class Action against Xerox Corporation and certain of the Company's officers and directors in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.  The suit is brought on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased the common stock of Xerox Corporation ("Xerox" or the "Company") (NYSE:XRX) between January 25, 2000 and July 27, 2000.

The complaint charges Xerox and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that defendants issued a series of false and misleading statements during the Class Period. Specifically, on January 25, 2000, Xerox issued a press release announcing that the Company is successfully addressing its domestic operational problems, and reporting excellent growth in its Mexican operations for the fourth quarter of 1999. Xerox, however, had improperly recognized uncollectible receivables as income, and failed to properly account for liabilities. These misrepresentations were repeated in the Company's Form 10-K, filed on March 27, 2000, which contained a letter from KPMG, representing that, based upon its audits of the Company, the Form 10-K fairly presented the financial information it contained. This statement was false because KPMG knew, or was reckless in not knowing, of the Company's improper accounting. On July 26, 2000, Xerox announced that its earnings for the second quarter of 2000 would be below analysts' earnings expectations, and that the Company was cooperating with the SEC's investigation of accounting irregularities in Xerox's Mexican operations. In response to the announcement, the price of Xerox shares dropped 16% from $18.19 per share to $15.25 per share.
