Nokia share soared again02. 05. 2021 Sunday / By: Robert Denes / Business / Exact time: BST / Print this page
Nokia, a telecommunications equipment provider, exceeded Wall Street’s first-quarter earnings expectations after the company’s stock rose 13.7% on Thursday.
Revenues rose 3% to € 5.08 billion ($ 6.16 billion), exceeding analysts ’expectations of $ 4.74 billion. Net income totaled $ 451.5 million, or about 7 cents per share, exceeding analysts ’consensus of 1 cent per share. This growth was driven in part by Nokia's network infrastructure and mobile network 5G profits, rather than the Mobile business, which sold below 3% in the European market in the first quarter.
All in all, Nokia’s comparable net profit increased more than 11-fold to 375 million euros ($ 455 million). This was well above analysts' estimates of an adjusted profit of € 90 million.
