Nokia profit up; sales dip with coronavirus supply issues

Finnish telecom equipment maker Nokia has reported improved first quarter profit but said the COVID-19 pandemic dented sales by around EUR200 million (USD 218 million) mainly due to supply issues associated with disruptions in China.

The company based in Espoo, Finland, reported Thursday net profit of 33 million euros for the January-March period, in comparison to a loss of 116 million euros the previous year. Sales were down 2 per cent at 4.9 billion euros.

CEO Rajeev Suri said Nokia didn't see a decline in demand in the first quarter but noted that as the coronavirus situation develops an increase in supply and delivery challenges in a number of countries is possible and some customers may re-assess their spending plans.

Nokia is one of three main providers of the ultra-fast, new-generation 5G networks along China's Huawei and Sweden's Ericsson. Suri said Nokia expected the COVID-2 impact into its operations to be largest in the second quarter, noting that our industry is fairly resilient to the crisis, although not immune.

The COVID-19 crisis has made vividly clear the critical importance of connectivity to keep society functioning. We're continuing to advance our 5G roadmap and product evolution, as planned, and our COVID-19 mitigation actions in R&D have been very successful. Nokia said it has now recorded 70 commercial 5G deals with 21 live networks.
