Nokia Siemens Networks: Preparing to Connect the World

With a vision of 5 billion people connected and ‘always on’ by 2015, the planned Nokia Siemens Networks is ready to connect the world

At the 3GSM World Congress 2007 in Barcelona, Nokia and Siemens will join together to present the future Nokia Siemens Networks. Nokia Siemens Networks will be a world leader in telecommunications, with strong positions in the fastest-growing market segments and regions. Driven by a desire to connect the world, the new company will have an unparalleled capability to deliver ‘end-to-end’ convergent solutions based on a broad portfolio of fixed and mobile infrastructure products, services and devices. The planned merger to create Nokia Siemens Networks is expected to close in the first quarter 2007.

“Nokia Siemens Networks will be ideally positioned to help our customers capture opportunities that will arise as the connected community swells to around five billion by 2015. In 2015, we will live in a broadband-IP world, in which five billion people in practice will be ‘always on’, connected to the Internet, rich content, services and of course each other,” said Simon Beresford-Wylie, designated Chief Executive Officer for the future Nokia Siemens Networks. “While Nokia Siemens Networks will have the scale to compete, we know that is just a starting point. As the world of telecommunications changes, we will also create customer value through innovation, speed and deep end-user insight.”

Nokia Siemens Networks will have a particular focus on the following areas:
  • Business transformation and helping customers find and capture opportunities in the fast-changing market.

  • Supporting customers in developing new revenue streams by understanding market trends and bringing new, innovative services to market.

  • Providing products, services and solutions that help reduce operating expenses and partnering with customers to improve operational efficiency.

  • Meeting the unique needs of new growth markets by working with customers to provide affordable voice and data solutions for end-users.

  • Utilizing the deep understanding the company will have in all areas of IP-centric convergence to identify and support new business opportunities for communication providers.

  • Working closely with customers on issues of environmental responsibility, including lowering power consumption and reducing the weight and size of products.

  • Bringing a full end-to-end expertise to help customers maximize investments and provide seamless experiences for end users.

“With the creation of Nokia Siemens Networks, we have the opportunity to build the right company to meet the needs of our customers today and well into the future,” said Christoph Caselitz, designated Chief Market Operations Officer for the future Nokia Siemens Networks. “We start from a strong position, with most of the top 100 operators as our customers, and a passion to help them address the challenges of a changing industry. The Nokia Siemens Networks brand that we are launching today reflects that passion.”

The new Nokia Siemens Networks brand, launched at 3GSM, is based on the belief that the future of the communications industry lies in understanding and uniting communities. It reflects the dynamic nature of the industry and the innovative attitude of the new company. The brand is a symbol of movement and renewal and of the future company’s desire to have a spirit that is pioneering, passionate and pragmatic.

“As we head to a world where we believe that five billion people will be constantly connected, we need to have a deeply rooted innovation culture at Nokia Siemens Networks – and we will,” said Mika Vehviläinen, designated Chief Operating Officer for the future Nokia Siemens Networks. “Across all of our business units, we will focus both on today’s needs as well as bringing the future of networks to life.” Nokia Siemens Networks will have six business units: Radio Access, Service Core and Applications, Operations Support Systems, Broadband Access, IP Networking and Transport, and Services.

Nokia and Siemens are presenting their key solutions and applications at the 3GSM World Congress 2007 in Barcelona in hall 8, and in a show truck in front of hall 8.

The planned merger to create Nokia Siemens Networks is expected to close in the first quarter of 2007, subject to previously announced closing conditions.

This document contains forward-looking statements and information – that is, statements related to future, not past, events. These statements may be identified by words as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “will” or words of similar meaning. Such statements are based on our current expectations and certain assumptions, and are, therefore, subject to certain risks and uncertainties. A variety of factors, many of which are beyond Siemens’ control, affect its operations, performance, business strategy and results and could cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Siemens worldwide to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. For us, particular uncertainties arise, among others, from: changes in general economic and business conditions (including margin developments in major business areas); the challenges of integrating major acquisitions and implementing joint ventures and other significant portfolio measures; changes in currency exchange rates and interest rates; introduction of competing products or technologies by other companies; lack of acceptance of new products or services by customers targeted by Siemens worldwide; changes in business strategy; the outcome of investigations and legal proceedings as well as various other factors. More detailed information about certain of these factors is contained in Siemens’ filings with the SEC, which are available on the Siemens website,  and on the SEC’s website, . Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in the relevant forward-looking statement as expected, anticipated, intended, planned, believed sought, estimated or projected. Siemens does not intend or assume any obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements in light of developments which differ from those anticipated.

Nokia Siemens Networks is expected to start operations in Q1 2007, subject to customary regulatory approvals, the completion of standard closing conditions, and the agreement of a number of detailed implementation steps.
