Nokia looks to the future following tough Q4

first_img Alcatel-LucentearningsNokia AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 02 FEB 2017 Español Author Alianza sobre IA entre Nokia y Microsoft Nokia makes AI move with Microsoft Home Nokia looks to the future following tough Q4 Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri (pictured) said the company “ended 2016 positioned well for the future” following its integration of Alcatel-Lucent, although the picture was not altogether rosy.In a statement, Suri said Nokia ended the year having shifted from being mobile-focused to covering a range of fixed, mobile and software sectors: “with solid opportunities to drive higher returns through expansion into new customer segments; with emerging businesses in digital health and digital media; and with greatly expanded patent and brand licensing activities”.He also said there was growing customer support for its strategy, with an increasing share of its sales pipeline covering products and services from two or more business groups. “The potential of cross selling started to become a reality”, he said.However, Q4 sales on a combined company (non-IFRS) basis declined 13 per cent from €7.7 billion to €6.7 billion, with sales in the Networks business down 14 per cent to €6.1 billion. The Networks weakness was attributed to challenging market conditions in Q4 2016, and a difficult comparison against a strong quarter for Alcatel-Lucent in 2015.Sales in Nokia Technologies decreased 25 per cent to €309 million, largely due to the presence last year of an arbitration award against Samsung. This was partially offset by an extended licensing deal with Samsung and divested IPR, and the acquisition of wearables company Withings.Combined company operating profit of €940 million was down 27 per cent from €1.3 billion. This was attributed to higher costs in areas including R&D, selling, general and administrative, partially offset by higher gross profit, all primarily related to the Alcatel-Lucent deal.The fourth quarter of 2016 also saw Nokia initiating patent licensing complaints against Apple.On a Nokia standalone basis (which excludes Alcatel-Lucent from the prior-year period), net income of €658 million was up 32 per cent year-on-year from €499 million, on revenue of €6.6 billion, up 84 per cent from €3.6 billion.center_img Steve works across all of Mobile World Live’s channels and played a lead role in the launch and ongoing success of our apps and devices services.

Jailed solicitor caused ‘colossal harm’ to profession through scams

first_imgAn experienced solicitor who used his status to give credence to illegal investment schemes has been thrown out of the legal profession. Stephen Pickard was jailed for a total of eight years in November 2016 after helping to put together a scheme to convince investors to pay money into a Ponzi-style private placement programme.  He was found guilty of two offences of fraud by false representation and concealing criminal property. The investment opportunity, described in court as ‘all lies’, never existed and Pickard knew this was the case, using his role to let people believe it was genuine. The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal heard the solicitor of 32 years, ‘provided respectability’ through the scheme and ‘dragged through the mire’ the name of his former employer, Yorkshire firm Lupton Fawcett, which played no part in the fraud. In sentencing at Leeds Crown Court, His Honour Judge Kearl QC said Pickard was essential to the scheme in order to claim to provide full and proper due diligence and to give a history to the trading – the solicitor was the ‘lieutenant’ of the main defendant, by whom he was paid. The tribunal heard Pickard had been contacted in prison and he did not wish to contest disciplinary proceedings against him. He was found to have acted through ‘greed and desire for personal financial gain’, having been a willing participant in fraudulent activities in which members of the public lost significant amounts of money. His case had caused ‘colossal harm’ to the legal profession in general, the conviction leading to headlines in the media such as ‘another lawyer helps fraudsters by giving credibility to their scam’.  Pickard was struck off the roll of solicitors and ordered to pay £2,439 costs. Following his conviction, Lupton Fawcett emphasised that the firm was not involved in any way in Pickard’s offences, which were carried out without its knowledge. Once the firm became aware of his conduct, it reported the matter to the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Pickard departed shortly thereafter.last_img read more

Roberts takes August monthly mug

first_imgPSC Golf from The Growling SwanMonday, August 22, Mt. Shadow – StablefordWell we cater for the big crowds and we cater for the small crowds, only 10 golfers today but it makes no difference to us as it is all the same and the competition is still strong!Maurice Roberts (left) with Alan Sanders.Playing from the blue tees the scores were not quite up to standard and having the fairways mowed but the clippings being left made it a little difficult to find ones ball.  Many players complained that lost balls appeared to be the order of the day – the next group to play Mt. Shadow will benefit with balls being offered up for sale. A good course to play but I think that they are going to find it difficult to compete with some of the better courses offering super prices.  I think that they need to pull their socks up and start looking as to what is being offered.Glenn Henriksen.On a day when the scorers were never in danger, Glenn Henriksen (on the eve of departing) took the honors from The Colonel (Alan Sanders), making sure that the podium is the place to stand on his first outing this trip.1st Glenn Henriksen (11) 33pts2nd Alan Sanders (24) 32pts3rd Alex Field (17) 31ptsNear Pins: Ebrahim (5), Glenn Henriksen (7), Martin Todd (15), Martin Todd (17)Thursday, August 25, Pattavia – Monthly MugTwenty nine punters gathered in Soi Chaiyapoon eager to take advantage of the great offer put on by Pattavia G.C.To say the day was warm was an understatement, little or no breeze made it even more uncomfortable.  The course was in good nick, with the greens playing the way they normally do but I must admit they are starting to look tired and sometimes playing that way.Playing from the white tees we played two divisions and being monthly mug day we were playing stroke (this sorting the men from the boys).A Flight gave us our mug winner, Maurice Roberts, with a very tidy net 67.  Second in that division was Mike Johns while Denis Steele and ‘The Coach’ Mike Gosden filled the other spots.B Flight saw Alan ‘The Colonel’ Sanders with a good score of net 68 to give him 1st place and only 1 shot away from The Monthly Mug.  Second in the flight was Rona Carungay, who is playing some good golf at the moment, with Andrew Allen and Bernie McCart filling 3rd & 4th.A Grade (0–17)1st Maurice Roberts (15) net 672nd Mike Johns (14) net 693rd Denis Steele (12) net 704th Mike Gosden (17) net 71B Grade (18+)1st Alan Sanders (24) net 682nd Rona Carungay (23) net 703rd Andrew Allen (29) net 744th Bernie McCart (31) net 77Near Pins: 4th Steve Younger, 7th Mike Johns, 13th Maurice Roberts, 17th Sal BrizziLong Putts: 9th Mike Johns, 18th Gerri Crilly.Note: The GS is a friendly golf outlet and caters for and encourages all golfers male and female to have a hit at any of our weekly outings.  We generally play Mondays and Thursdays at one of the many fine golf courses in and around Pattaya.  Please contact Peter Grey if you are interested on 0861 503086.The Growling Swan also caters to the bowls enthusiasts.  Bus transport departs the GS on Sundays at 10 AM to play at The Retreat.  The cost including return bus transport, bowling fees and a hot lunch is less than 400 baht so great value for a day out.last_img read more

Liverani: Lecce need to be ‘carefree’

first_imgFabio Liverani believes Lecce must be “carefree” in their approach if they are to spring a surprise against Juventus tomorrow. Juve are heavy favourites to beat Lecce, given they are at home and remain the dominant force in Serie A, but Liverani – who must serve a touchline ban on Saturday – is upbeat about his side’s chances. “I won’t be on the field but I’m not bitter about it, even I certainly won’t like not being there,” the Coach said at a Press conference. “I accept the ban that I received after the match against Milan, even if I don’t agree with it. “As for whether Juve will rotate, everyone looks at their own first. The Bianconeri have a squad that can manage any game because they have valid options in every position. “Above all, those who have played less could give something more. Whether Ronaldo is there or not doesn’t change anything. “We’ll certainly enter the field with that bit of carefreeness, which you need in games like these. “We’re only thinking about our guarantees and the collective because we know we can’t match them individually. “We mustn’t think about who we’ll be facing, only that we’ll continue on our way. The group can push us beyond this obstacle. My players can stick together even more when they face difficulties.” The Salentini have yet to win at home this season, so is the ex-Lazio midfielder concerned? “Points count, not where we get them: I don’t look at these things. “I have plenty of forward options and I’ll make my considerations.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.
