Just a Press Release Heads Up. This is in comment to Nokia’s Credit Rating which is now rated as Junk by Fitch because they are not convinced Nokia can turn things around in 18 months.
Espoo, Finland – Timo Ihamuotila, Nokia’s Executive Vice President and CFO, comments on today’s unsolicited rating from Fitch:
“We are quickly taking action to position Nokia for future growth and success. Nokia will continue to increase its focus on lowering the company’s cost structure, improving cash flow and maintaining a strong financial position.”
