Rival Ericsson also recently upped its cost cutting targets. Net sales trip upNokia’s Q2 net sales, expressed on a combined company basis, fell by 11 per cent to €5.7 billion compared with the year ago quarter. Mobile Networks fell by 14 per cent to €3.19 billion, not offset by a seven per cent gain for fixed networks.Geographically the worst falls in the networks business were Latin America (16 per cent) and Middle East & Africa (24 per cent). The company noted “meaningful negative impact from one of our major customers in Latin America”.Suri described the topline decline as “a concern”, and a reflection of “challenging market conditions”, a seeming constant in the mobile infrastructure business.Investors should not expect an improvement in the near term, he said, but the company belieives it is well-positioned given the combined portfolio, operational discipline, sales execution and opportunities in the transition from 4G to 5G.Using the same combined company (non-IFRS) measure, operating profit fell by 49 per cent to €332 million.On a reported basis, the company made a loss of €726 million, compared with a year earlier profit of €338 million.

The SPI City Council met Wednesday evening for their regular meeting. The meeting covered upcoming events, project funding options, and transportation topics including the lowering of speed limits on north Padre Boulevard.During public comments, City Manager Bill DiLibero came up to remind those with short term rental properties about the registration requirement and shared that there would be two trainings Saturday at the Convention Centre at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. as well as a video at www.myspi.org covering the application process. Members of the public also addressed the audience to share upcoming events, which include, the first annual Paddle Padre Festival this Saturday, the Sea Turtle Inc sponsored YappoPalooza in June, and family friendly star gazing sessions throughout the summer.The council moved on to discuss budget amendments related to the reallocation of funds to complete projects approved at the last meeting. According to Finance Director Rodrigo Gimenez, the council knowingly allocated funds from excess reserves toward projects that exceeded the actual budget at that time. Before the last meeting, there was $164,000 in excess reserves, and three budget allocations, which included the transportation plan update, hiring a consultant for grant services, and the necessary mosquito deterring chemicals, left a deficit of about $67,000.Want the whole story?
