  Nokia, celebra companie finlandeza care de anul trecut nu mai produce smartphone-uri, si-a anuntat astazi intentia de a cumpara compania franceza Alcatel-Lucent intr-o intelegere care ii va scoate 16.6 miliarde de dolari din conturi, dar ii va creste capacitatea de a dezvolta tehnologii de comunicatii si nu doar atat. Cele doua companii au peste 40.000 de angajati in lumea intreaga care dezvolta diverse tehnologii de comunicatii, iar cu peste 4.7 miliarde de dolari cheltuiti doar in 2014 pentru cercetare si dezvoltare, este clar ca uniunea lor va aduce si mai multe beneficii pentru lumea intreaga in urmatorii ani dupa fuziune.

  Nokia a ramas in cursul anului trecut fara divizia care dezvolta smartphone-uri si cele cateva tablete, Microsoft salvand-o de la faliment prin achizitionarea sa, astfel ca acum compania are suficiente resurse pentru a se reorganiza si repozitiona pe piata ca un “jucator” care dezvolta tehnologii de telecomunicatii pentru viitor. Ambele companii au un impresionant portofoliu de brevete de inventie pe care il licentiaza catre diverse entitati de pe glob, astfel ca au resurse suficiente pentru a se dezvolta in viitor, acum ramane doar de vazut cat vom avea noi toti de castigat de pe urma colaborarii dintre ele.

NOKIA AND ALCATEL-LUCENT TO COMBINE TO CREATE AN INNOVATION LEADER IN NEXT GENERATION TECHNOLOGY AND SERVICES FOR AN IP CONNECTED WORLD

NOKIA AND ALCATEL-LUCENT TO COMBINE TO CREATE AN INNOVATION LEADER IN NEXT GENERATION TECHNOLOGY AND SERVICES FOR AN IP CONNECTED WORLD

Helsinki & Paris, April 15, 2015 – Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent announce today their intention to combine to create an innovation leader in next generation technology and services for an IP connected world. The two companies have entered into a memorandum of understanding under which Nokia will make an offer for all of the equity securities issued by Alcatel-Lucent, through a public exchange offer in France and in the United States, on the basis of 0.55 of a new Nokia share for every Alcatel-Lucent share. The all-share transaction values Alcatel-Lucent at EUR 15.6 billion on a fully diluted basis, corresponding to a fully diluted premium of 34% (equivalent to EUR 4.48 per share), and a premium to shareholders of 28% (equivalent to EUR 4.27 per share) (see Appendix 1), on the unaffected weighted average share price of Alcatel-Lucent for the previous three months. This is based on Nokia’s unaffected closing share price of EUR 7.77 on April 13, 2015.

Each company’s Board of Directors has approved the terms of the proposed transaction, which is expected to close in the first half of 2016. The proposed transaction is subject to approval by Nokia’s shareholders, completion of relevant works council consultations, receipt of regulatory approvals and other customary conditions.

Enabling the connected world

The combined company will be uniquely positioned to create the foundation of seamless connectivity for people and things wherever they are. This foundation is essential for enabling the next wave of technological change, including the Internet of Things and transition to the cloud. 

The combined company will have unparalleled innovation capabilities, with Alcatel-Lucent’s Bell Labs and Nokia’s FutureWorks, as well as Nokia Technologies, which will stay as a separate entity with a clear focus on licensing and the incubation of new technologies. 

With more than 40 000 R&D employees and spend of EUR 4.7 billion in R&D in 2014, the combined company will be in a position to accelerate development of future technologies including 5G, IP and software-defined networking, cloud, analytics as well as sensors and imaging. 

Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia have highly complementary portfolios and geographies, with particular strength in the United States, China, Europe and Asia-Pacific. They will also bring together the best of fixed and mobile broadband, IP routing, core networks, cloud applications and services. This combination is expected to create access to an expanded addressable market with improved long term growth opportunities.

Consumers are looking to access data, voice and video across networks of all kinds. In this environment technology that used to operate independently now needs to work well together. That is not always the case today, but together Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent are uniquely suited to helping telecom operators, internet players and large enterprises address this challenge.

    Nokia se bazeaza mult pe tehnica de site-uri si nu pe telefoane.Aceasta fuziune cred ca o sa avem de castigat.Cel putin noi care lucram in domeniul acesta.Pe de alta parte alcatel-ul nu are decat partea de microunda buna ca in rest sunt la pamant.
