Exploit patents better: Alcatel-Lucent before further modification


As reported by the "Börsen-Zeitung" (Freitagausabe), the Paris-based company will decide on a restructuring plan scheduled for next week's board meeting. The background is that Alcatel-Lucent had slipped into the red in the second quarter.

The French had already reacted by announcing the loss of 5, 000 of the 76, 000 jobs. However, CEO Ben Verwaayen does not consider this sufficient and has called banks to consider strategic options for individual lines of business, the report said. In addition, the patent portfolio should be better exploited. In particular, the patents in mobile should throw more money. (Dpa / tc)
