Nokia je objavila poslovne rezultate za treći kvartal ove godine. Rezultati su bolji nego što je Nokia očekivala, unatoč minusu kojeg je ostvario Networks odjel. U Nokiji ističu kako je rast u Kini poništio slabiju potražnju za uslugama na drugim tržištima svijeta (EU i Amerika) te očekuju kako će se nakon završetka preuzimanja Alcatel-Lucenta početi vraćati novac dioničarima, pteciznije oko 7 milijardi eura. Dalje se navodi da preuzimanje Alcatel-Lucenta što je posao ukupne vrijednosti 15,6 milijardi eura ide prema planu. Cijeli posao trebao bi biti završen u prvom kvartalu sljedeće godine nakon što dobiju odgovarajuća odobrenja regulatornih agencija. Također se navodi kako im je cilj kroz ujedinjene poslovanja do 2018. ostvarivati uštede od 900 milijuna eura na godišnjoj razini. U trećem kvartalu ukupni promet Nokie pao je 2% u odnosu na godinu ranije, sa 3,09 milijarde eura, na 3,04 milijarde eura, dok je dobit pala sa 354 na 297 milijuna eura.

Međutim, treba spomenuti kako je Narasla dobit Technologies odjela i to za 7% (sa 152 na 162 milijuna eura). Rasla je zarada i prekinute djelatnosti, odnosno HERE odjela i to za 8% (sa 262 na 283 milijuna eura) pa se opet postavlja pitanje čemu prodati nešto što dobro posluje. Opet, s novcem od prodaje Nokia će pokriti određene gubitke nastale preuzimanjem Alcatel-Lucenta i dodatno se učvrstiti u Networks poslovanju. Očekuje se i daljnji rast Technologies odjela kroz licenciranje patenata i Nokia brenda.

Nokia-Q3

NOKIA:

Nokia’s third-quarter can be summarized in two words: progress and performance. Progress in moving the Alcatel-Lucent transaction closer to completion and solid performance across all of our businesses.

The performance at Nokia Networks was the highlight of the quarter, and allowed us to raise our full-year outlook for that business. Even if I am not pleased with the overall sales development, our strong profitability is testament to the strength of our operating model. We said earlier in the year that we would redouble our efforts to ensure our cost structure was aligned to market conditions, and the success of those efforts is very clear in our results.

Nokia Technologies also had a solid quarter, with year-on-year growth in licensing revenues. Our commitment to bringing innovative new products to market was apparent with the announcement of the OZO virtual-reality camera. OZO has been extremely well-received and will be launched officially before the end of the year.

During the quarter we made significant progress towards the closing of our transaction with Alcatel-Lucent. This progress was reflected in our announcement on October 21 that we had received all the necessary regulatory approvals to allow us to proceed with the public exchange offer. The Nokia Board of Directors has recently called for an Extraordinary General Meeting, to be held onDecember 2, to request shareholder approval for the transaction. We currently expect the settlement date of the initial exchange offer to be in the first quarter of 2016.

In advance of that offer, we announced a planned EUR 7 billion capital structure optimization program. That program, in my view, provides an excellent balance of significant capital return to shareholders while still ensuring we have strategic flexibility for the future.

Progress was also clear in our integration planning work. As announced separately, we now have the confidence to target the achievement of our synergy savings goals one year earlier than originally planned. I continue to believe that the acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent provides a very strong long-term value creation opportunity.
